It has not yet been long since Sony released the PS4 firmware update 2.5. But it appears that the team behind the improvements for Sony’s next-gen console is already hard at work to squash the bugs that came with the fix.

Gamepur reports that insider Tidux has recently announced via his Twitter that a Ps4 update is in the works to fix the problems that the latest PS4 major update brought. There are no details on what exactly the bugs would be. However, the announcement has some bearing, since Sony is also currently seeking feedback on how the PS4 can be further improved.

Spotted by PlayStation Lifestyle, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida asked PS4 players via Twitter on their feedback regarding the PS4 features. The report states that Sony is currently listening to feedback and even requests on the features of the console. Sony’s Toshimasa Aoki and his Twitter account should be fans’ go-to person for sending feedback on anything related to the PS4.

Possibly one feature that’s already being looked into is the uncompressed screenshot feature. One fan commented on having the feature in the PS4 as an option, since the PS4 only features compressed JPEG screenshot capabilities. Toshimasa mentioned that the team will look into the feature.

The feedback on the PS4 also goes for any thoughts on the Project Morpheus, the PS4’s answer to virtual reality in gaming. In an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine, Yoshida revealed some new interesting information about Project Morpheus. TechRadar reports that gaming is just the pit stops of the Project Morpheus.

Yoshida revealed that there are already companies that are talking to Sony about the Project Morpheus. But the key her is that even with the offers, this does not mean that Sony will provide for all. This may be due in part to the focus on the PS4. Sony is still expanding the use of Project Morpheus on the PS4.

As previously reported by Wired, Sony’s target release date for the Project Morpheus on the PS4 is 2016. This came after the company showcased a prototype of the device, which had mostly finished insides. It appears that the rest of 2015 will be used for finalising the details, though developers can actually start making games for the VR device as early as April this year.
