What's New in PS4 Update 5.50, All the Changes

Upcoming Update Features PS4 Supersampling Mode

A select few people, starting today, have access to the beta program and all of its awesome new features that Sony has made a decision to share with us today via a sneak peek.

For those wanting to limit how much a PS4 is used, the new Play Time Management feature has been introduced, which is primarily intended for use with kids.

The signature feature is Play Time Management, which is created to give adult family members more control over how long kids are active on the PlayStation Network. Child accounts will be notified during gameplay to let them know when to save and quit their game. "The family managers/guardians can also set the PS4 to log out once the playtime session is over, and increase or decrease game time on the go, via the web portal". Sony has also added a new PlayStation Plus tab, showing you which games you own via the PlayStation Plus monthly free games promotion. You can hide apps through the "Options" settings.

Supersampling Mode on PS4 Pro: This feature will no doubt be the one to get PS4 users the most excited.

Lesser improvements are the notification update that lets you delete older notifications from your system as well as the import custom wallpapers via USB feature with which you can use any image as a wallpaper on your console. You'll be able to zoom and crop to make sure you get the right background for you. Just go to Settings Themes Select Theme Custom Select Image USB Storage Device. Last but not least, there's a new option for tournament team pages that lets you customize logo and backgrounds as well as edit the profile of your team.

The PS Plus tab also gives you a clear indication of the PlayStation Plus games you own, complete with a new lock icon that appears when you no longer subscribe. Some games already have supersampling as part of their PS4 Pro Enhanced features, though this new setting will bring that same experience to games that don't already include that feature.




We're closing in on the launch of the next PlayStation 4 system software update.

Sony added a pulldown menu under the Friends tab in the Quick menu that allows you to see which of your friends are online.

While the new tabs are welcomed, the feature I'm personally most excited for is the ability to hide applications under the "Purchased" tab in the library.

Additionally, users can access certain shortcuts from the Quick Menu when listening to music on their PS4 and even press the square button as a shortcut for volume control when using Spotify on PlayStation Music. And when you're on the Media Player or the USB Music Player, "triangle" will work as the shortcut for play or pause, and the "square" button as the volume control. Background music may occasionally be unavailable, similar to when playing a game locally on the PS4.

"Please note performance will vary, as games are optimised differently to take advantage of the power of the PS4 Pro".
