PS4 Firmware Update 9.03 for December 1 Rolls Out for System Performance

PS4 Firmware Update 9.03

Sony just published the new PS4 Update 9.03 for December 1, although don’t expect much as it seems to only address some system performance.

PS4 Firmware Update 9.03 Patch Notes:

This system software update improves system performance™

Is this update mandatory?

Yes, for those wanting to continue to play online, the PS4 update 9.03 is mandatory for all users.

To download (914mb required) this new update you can do so under system software updates located in the settings menu on the PS4. If you need to download the file and update manually, steps are included below.

How to Update a PS4 Over a USB

  1. Using a PC or Mac, create a folder named “PS4” on a USB drive formatted as FAT32. Inside that folder, create another folder named “UPDATE”.
  2. Download the update file (link here) and save it in the “UPDATE” folder. Save the file as “PS4UPDATE.PUP”.
  3. Plug the USB drive containing the file into your PS4 console.
  4. Start the PS4 console in Safe Mode: press and hold the power button, releasing after the second beep.
  5. Select Safe Mode option 3: Update System Software.
  6. Select Update from USB Storage Device > OK.

As we mentioned, don’t expect much from this update in terms of features. However, with the PS5 recently confirmed with a private hack, and a new webexploit working on both the PS4 and PS5, chances are this update is to address and patch those security holes. We will monitor the scene and update you all once we have confirmation or more information on PS4 update 9.03.
