Hit The PS4 Running: Day-One Patch Can Be Downloaded In The Background

Sony recently confirmed that PS4 owners will have to download a 300MB patch to access a frankly staggering amount of basic functionality, not limited to Blu-Ray playback and online multiplayer. On the plus side, it shouldn't take long to download, and impatient players can get stuck straight into their launch titles while they wait.

Sony's Shuhei Yoshida once again leapt on Twitter to answer some pressing fan questions. When asked whether the patch could be downloaded in the background, he simply answered "yes," meaning that you should be able to get involved with Killzone: Shadow Fall or Knack straight away and subsequently install the update when convenient. Here's hoping that Sony's servers are ready to take the strain.

In slightly less exciting news, Yoshida also confirmed that the PS4 won't support custom wallpapers, with the exception of Facebook profile pictures.

Nice that system updates are in the background and from the start too.

I'll be getting one, and I can't see myself being able to do much in the time it takes to download 300MB's, but I guess it's cool not having to be greeted with a bar filling up as soon as you turn the console on.

I'd like that.

Oh. I'm thinking about the wring kind of bar... ;)
