    Does anyone know for sure that the Playstation 4 20th Anniversary Edition comes with firmware 1.76?

    In this video, they opened a 20th Anniversary Edition PS4 and at 6:06 the one guy says:
    "Go find out what firmware is on that thing, out of the box. I'm curious."



    Then at 6:34 they say that their 20th Anniversary Edition PS4 had 1.76 firmware installed.

    I was lucky enough to purchase a 20th Anniversary Edition PS4 when they went on sale.
    Mine is still sealed, but I have not found any confirmation what firmware it might have other then this video.

    Unfortunately it's not that simple, the 20th anniversary version came out a couple of months after 2.00 (which should be the next release after 1.76) was released, but at the same time we have the PS4 Pro coming with the 3.70 firmware even though 4.00 came out over 2 months ago.

    I mean as long as it's below 4.01 you are good.

    1.76 still have the benefit of having a public kernel exploit today, nothing is released for 4.01 yet even if we most likely will get something soon.

    Also, I couldn't find the exact release date for the 20th anniversary version, but my findings point to somewhere between late 2014/early 2015

    The public K-exploit for below 4.01 is coming very soon. Don't worry.

    Then we can get the same features on 1.76 then on 4.01.

    The 20th Anniversary PS4s were available for sale in the USA on Dec 22, 2014 only from the Sony Store. I would think they were produced/packaged well before that though.

    Really? Guess I will keep my PS4 Pro on 3.70 until the dust settles.

    You can use my PS4 collection and update too 4.01. Or you can just stay at 3.70 it doesn't matter.

    I am not able to access PSN either way, so doesn't really matter and am in no hurry.
    But I might get one of those 2.5' FireCuda 2TB SSHD though and seeing as 3.70 was never released, will just need the 800mb 4.01 fresh install file.

    Thanks for your help. Also, about your "PS3 downgrade service P.M me for more information! (Slim PS3 systems only.)".

    I have a PS3 Slim with 4.81 OFW, can anything be done with it?
    And can 4.81 CFW access PSN?

    @Zero72463 When you say kexploit do you mean the exploit by Chaitin Tech?

    If you guys really want a PS4 20th anniversary console they have them on eBay for up to $1400.

    Yes that exploit. 4.06 patched it so developers will release it soon.

    @Zero72463 Have they confirmed they are going to release it? They could've made a deal with Sony to not release it for money possibly. I'm just speculating here.
