    can you connect to the internet from the PS4?
    i think you can download the update without signing in.

    I wanted to ask this too as my internet is garbage and game updates are way too big for me to wait DL'ing on my ps4 when I can get them on my PC faster

    Afaik, there currently exists no way to download game updates manually through a PC and install it using a flash drive. Will look into it some time

    Why not back up your saves and delete the game and start with no updates? Maybe that glitch is still there

    You need to have the latest fw to download game patches, right? :S

    I think you can download the updates without signing in for PSN.

    Can more people vouch for this.

    I am confused some people say you have to be on latest firmware, some say allow the game update but cancel the system update, a guy in gamestop told me that the game will only be able to update once the system is on latest firmware.

    You can actually download updates without signing in, yes. But afaik you can't install them after the download is finished, you can only do so when you're on the latest firmware. So you're basically stuck with the update downloaded but no way to install it.

    In my mencave ;)
    You can also putt your PS4 in standby and the PS4 will download the updates.
    Do you use WiFI?

    Yes, I never bothered to because it takes a whole day for an update for example FFXV numinous updates that game has, I simply cannot download it because it's some 46gb updates that I could download on my PC elsewhere in 3 hours give or take but on the PS4 nope.

    Thanks, I have another question, since this is a pre-owned game would the updates have been applied to this disk by the previous owner who sold them to me.

    Is FF15 playable without updates.

    Game updates are installed to the harddrive only

    FFXV is playable without patches

    Thanks.

    But I heard from others it's unplayable without the big day 1 patch of over 8 gb.

    The day one patch should be on the disk

    IIRC, that day one patch isn't on disc, it's why it's called a day one PATCH
    I have FFXV on Day one, and there was a huge update, so unless they silently released a revised version of the disc (which I doubt), you'd have to download the patch

    I do think you could play without it though, pretty sure it was mainly cutscenes from the movie

    Thanks, for all replies, I am beginning to wonder if staying on 4.07 is worth all the hassle.
