Here's Every New PS4 5.50 Update Feature Explained

PlayStation 4 Remodeled PlayStation Gold Wireless Headset Arrives Later This Month

The beta invitations for the PS4 supersampling, coming with update 5.50, have gone out and reveal that the new graphics mode will be part of the new firmware.

Playtime management will introduce parental controls allowing any family member set as a guardian to limit play time for children (or other family members who aren't set as guardians ). Child accounts will be notified during gameplay to let them know when to save and quit their game. Such is the case with the upcoming 5.50 firmware update (codenamed KEIJI).

Read on for the full list of changes, which are now being experienced by closed trial testers, and will soon be made available to all PS4 owners. Once imported, you can even zoom, crop and preview them in-situ to help get the ideal look on your dashboard. Xbox One added play limits past year with the Creators Update, and the One X hardware has been supersampling games since last November. This is accomplished via a new USB storage device option on the Themes area of the Settings menu.

Once the software update goes live, you will be able to finally change your PS4 Wallpaper with an image from a USB stick, and will be able to do the same to customize a Team or tournament page.

Another section of the library allows you to see what games you now own through PlayStation Plus, keeping in mind that you'll lose access to said games should your subscription lapse. This allows you to check out how many hours your child is playing games, and you can limit the amount of time that are playing. Games will soon be broken down via what is now installed on the system - labeled as "This PS4" in the library - and all of the items associated with your account via an option labeled with your name and avatar.

If your Notifications tab makes you feel like you're in a particularly bad episode of Hoarders, you'll be glad to know that update 5.5 will make it possible to permanently delete any and all old notifications.

Meanwhile, updates to the Quick Menu promise to help you more quickly access specific friends and control your music. This also shows which friends are now online. To set your logo and background, head over to Events Teams select your team Edit Team Profile. This makes the PS4 Pro render the game in 4K, and then downsample it to your TV's resolution. If your membership has expired, you'll see a lock next to it, until you've resubscribed. 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. If you lack a 4K television, this new mode takes games that are rendering at higher than 1080p and downscales that output to your television.
