PS4 Firmware Update 5.50 Is Out Now So Get Downloading Shannon Grixti

Sony has released PlayStation 4 update 5.50 which offers system-wide supersampling across PS4 Pro consoles.

The mandatory update weighs in at 460MB and brings new features to the console's operating system. The mode will allow players with 1080p or below TVs to enjoy better quality visuals. When enabled, the PS4 Pro will render games at the best possible resolution it can manage and then shrink the image down to fit an HDTV, leading to a sharper final image.

As a family manager, parent, or guardian, you can now monitor your child's time played (the amount of time they've spent logged in to the PS4) and set restrictions accordingly.To manage play time settings for each child, select (Settings) [Parental Controls/Family Management] [Family Management]. The children who are playing on the console are warned when their play session is nearly over, allowing them to find a save point or safe logout point before running out of time.

In addition, the update lets users import images via USB in order to create custom wallpapers.

Hide apps We're adding a function that will allow you to hide certain applications under the "Purchased" tab in the Library.

Quick Menu and Notifications - This sees some enhancements for easily contacting online friends and sending messages during game play with less menus to go through. This feature also makes it easy to search and find games you've already purchased but have not yet installed. It's a simple as pressing the Options button on the highlighted game and selecting the option to hide the game. As previously revealed, firmware 5.50 introduces several new features, the most significant of which is Supersampling Mode. You will only be able to access this tab if you have an active PS+ subscription. Once imported, you can even zoom, crop and preview them in-situ to help get the flawless look on your dashboard.

You can also extend or shorten your child's play time on the day they play. If you're using Spotify on PlayStation Music, the "square" button will serve as the shortcut for volume control. Just go to Settings Themes Select Theme Custom Select Image USB Storage Device.

For those who subscribe to PS Now, Sony's game streaming service, you will finally be able to play background music while streaming the game.

You can now customize logos and backgrounds with your favorite images.

If you're courageous, then you can do a system update online through your console, or grab the 5.50 update from Sony and pop it on a USB drive and update using that.
