Sony Unveils New Gold Wireless Headset Coming Later This Month

PlayStation 4

While gamers may see some framerate issues with the use of this new option, it will be interesting to see how much of a difference the supersampling coming with the PS4 5.50 update actually makes.

PS4 update 5.50 will add several other features, including optional system-level PS4 Pro supersampling, Play Time Management for parent/guardian accounts to limit how long their kids spend playing, and Quick Menu shortcuts for better friends and music functionality. This feature will allow family managers (and adult family members who are set as guardians) to manage PS4 playtime for child family members on PSN. In addition to that, the family manager/guardians can choose whether or not to automatically log the child out of their PS4 once their playtime is over. Notifications on PS4 will be sent to the child during gameplay so that he or she knows when they should save and quit.

They can apply playtime restrictions to ensure their children play within the set playable hours and even add extra time via PC or smartphone whenever they wish to do so.

Go to Settings Themes Select Theme Custom Select Image USB Storage Device. If you want to create a PS4 background from your own images on a USB stick, you'll be able to do that now too. 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. "This PS4" will show only the applications that are now installed on your system - as in, the ones that you'll actually be interested in seeing 90 percent of the time - with further subdivisions for games and apps. The "This PS4" tab lists all the applications that are installed on the PS4 system, and the tab with your name/avatar lists all the apps that you purchased with your PSN ID. Playing around with those presets and finding the settings you like for each game type is nice, and makes this feel like a personalized, premium product.

You can also hide content that you no longer use, such as expired betas and trials. The Quick Menu has also been updated with more options when you're listening to music through Spotify. On the Media Player or the USB Music Player, Triangle works as the shortcut for play or pause.

Plus, organization enthusiasts will be able to delete old notifications as well as hide apps under the Purchased tab.

With Background Music on PS Now, you'll be able to listen to your favorite tracks while streaming a game on PS Now. With Supersampling Mode, PS4 Pro owners with 1080p (or lower) TVs can enjoy enhanced visuals. As reported back in January, those who have a PS4 Pro but not a 4K TV can still take advantage of games that render to higher resolution.
