For those who are still looking for a PS4 console in order to play through the holiday break leading to Christmas, Walmart has recently announced that it is expecting what is dubbed to be the "largest" shipment of PS4 to date.

It seems that this weekend, Sunday in particular, will be an important date to mark for those wanting to get their hands on a PS4 during this season.

DualShockers got a copy of the press release from Walmart, which detailed the schedule and what to expect for the big PS4 shipment. "Walmart continues to spread the cheer to customers with its largest shipment yet of the new PlayStation 4 consoles, arriving at stores across the country starting at 8 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 15. Customers can also visit Walmart.com for PS4 consoles while supplies last."

If that's not enough to make customers want to drop by a Walmart store, the release also stated that there will be a holiday sale that mimics the Black Friday sale prices for some of the games, toys, electronics and more for the holiday season.

PS4 System Update 1.52 Available for Download

Software stability will now be fixed with the newest system update 1.52 for the PS4, which is already available for download.

Announced on the official PlayStation Twitter account, Sony stated as quoted by VG 24/7, "PS4 system update 1.52 coming soon, improves system software stability. Protip: Enable Auto Downloads and leave your PS4 in standby mode!"

The PS4 System Update 1.52 will take up 323MB of space, though as per Sony's heads-up on Twitter, you can save more time waiting and have more time playing if you opt for the automatic download.

According to Geekgamerz, your PS4 will need to restart twice, once for after the file has been downloaded, and another one to complete the update's installation. There have been no other announcements as to the addition of any major new features promised by Sony.

CronusMax: Use any kind of controller for your PS4 or Xbox One

Next-gen gaming with the PS4 and Xbox One has brought about better graphics, more advanced engines and technologies, and overall notable improvements in the gaming industry. However, there are also gamers who have been noticing that not all games are compatible with the way the DualShock 4 and Xbox One controllers are handling the games.

Enter the new mod CronusMax, which is designed to make controllers compatible even with next-gen consoles. According to GameSkinny, you can mix and match the controller options with the console--meaning you can opt to use DualShock 3 on the PS4, a Wii controller on the Xbox One, and even resort to keyboard and mouse or even fighting sticks.

The new mod is currently being sold at the same price as a game, and it can give you the advantage that most don't have, given the limitations of normal gaming even in the next-gen level.
