PS4 firmware update out now in Europe

The PlayStation 4's 1.51 firmware update is now available to download in Europe ahead of the console's Nov. 29 launch in the region, PlayStation Europe announced today.

The update is the same version that was released in North America a few days after the console's Nov. 15 launch in the U.S. and improves the system's stability and refines the UI.

Europe was due to receive the update on Nov. 28, but it appears the update is available early. Like the U.S. version, users can apply the update to their PS4 in a number of ways, including downloading it directly from the internet through the console or downloading the update from a computer and saving it to a USB storage device before copying it to the PS4.

More details on the update can be read here.
