    So I'm buying a gold PS4 slim and hopefully it'll come in 4.55 or below
    Question is, is there a way for me to activate my PS4 and maybe download PSN games without updating to the latest firmware?
    Or I am left with option not to register any PSN account and play only from disc?

    You must update in order to use PSN,not sure what do you mean by "activate PS4",but i think you can create offline user and play on it if you don't want to log to PSN.

    Not sure about PS4 but in Vita world we usually activate the system by linking a PSN account to a device
    Yeah basically register a system to a PSN account

    So basically I can only play offline from disc only then? Because I cannot even download any PSN games without updating right?

    But in order to link your profile you must use Henkaku or download a games from PS3 and send it to PS Vita.
    There is no other way on PS4 i am afraid.

    Yeah. No way - you can't even download updates without signing into the PSN.

    Very well then. I'm stuck with playing offline from disc only for now I think

    Last question, just asking for opinion
    If you're like me, do you update or do you wait?

    I updated. Screw CFW - I bought a PS4 to play with it. IF he ever releases it, you could always buy a cheap used PS4.

    confirmed that the ps4 comes in 4.55
    I've decided to wait a while before updating to 4.70 but I also want to switch to a bigger hard drive. anyone has the link for 4.55 PS4UPDATE.PUP that can be used for new installation (should be close to 1 GB in size), preferably direct link from sony server if it's still available

    found it. not sure if I can share the link here but it's downloaded directly from sony server so should be okay
