PS4 firmware update 4.50 seems have brought another new feature that wasn’t announced. Alongside a superb update to fix the stability of PlayStation Move controllers, it now appears that you can preload PS4 patches prior to being able to install them

LittleBigPlanet 3 is the first game to offer a preload of a patch launching on March 17, as shown in the picture below.

This means that those annoying day-one patches that you have to wait to download, even though you’re already preloaded the game, will be a thing of the past.

Other new features that arrived in the PS4 system software update were PS4 Pro Boost mode, a new Start Menu design and the ability to upload custom PS4 wallpapers.
