New PS4 Firmware Update Available Ahead of God of War Release

God of War is set to release on April 20 and our review can be read here. Sony has released a firmware update, version 5.53, ahead of the game’s release. However, it will have nothing to do with improving the game or really anything else on the system. Weighing in at 440 MB, version 5.53 is a stability update with some general performance improvements, just in case you are wondering. The update could be related to the recent PlayStation Vita update that would patch exploits for hackers.
