PS4 Update 8.03 Rolled Out, Includes More Than Stability Fixes

PS4 Update 10.00

While Sony has just rolled out a PS5 firmware update today, PS4 gamers won’t be left out, as PS4 update 8.03 is now live! The latest firmware update for the PS4 actually has new stuff in it other than just stability fixes. It appears the update is optional for the moment, so users won’t be prompted or forced to update their consoles. If people want to try and manually force the system update they can do so on the PS4 by going to settings and then scrolling down to system software update. The console will then check for the latest update and begin downloading

PS4 Update 8.03 Patch Notes:

Here’s what got added in today’s PS4 firmware update:

  • Disable Game Chat Audio] has been added under [Sound/Devices] in quick menu. If you turn on this setting, game chat audio will be disabled. Your voice won’t be heard, and you won’t hear other player’s voices. This setting doesn’t apply to party chat audio.

That seems to be it in terms of new stuff for this system update. If we (or the community) spot any other changes not mentioned above, we’ll update the post. Likewise, if you spot any changes after installing the update, hit us up down in the comments below.

they were grabbed from the PS4 directly. Sony has a knack (hue hue hue hue) of releasing notes for software later than usual
