Sony might have accidentally announced the official launch date of the new PS4 system software update

It looks like the 4.50 PS4 system software update might release today, according to a post on Reddit. A user named Finch-Tech emailed Sony about a technical issue he was experiencing, and their reply was: "With the release of System Software 4.50 tomorrow, there will be a patch to version 2.40 of the PS VR firmware." The post was submitted 20 hours at the time of writing - meaning the update should be released today.

We can see the logic behind releasing the update today, as the 4.50 beta has been in effect for a month now, so the timing seems right. The update will introduce a number of PS4 improvements, such as external HDD support, and the very promising Boost Mode if you're an owner of the PS4 Pro.
