Details Emerge About PS4’s 5.50 Firmware Update

Today, Sony revealed details of what’s to come on the next firmware update for the PS4, and the laundry list of things that are currently being beta tested will make a lot of players excited. The full details came out today on the PlayStation Blog, but the short version is that you’re going to be getting a whole new set of options to make your gaming experience better. The first is Play Time Management, which will allow parents to dictate how long kids are allowed to play each day, so you can parent gaming time when you are away.

The Library UI will be getting some updates to the tabs, including the ability to hide apps. The Quick Menu will be getting a slew of new adjustments so you can make changes on the fly to files and other areas, along with some new background music that will finally make you feel a little bit more at home. The Notifications will be getting an upgrade so that they’re more informative and less annoying. You’ll be able to import custom wallpapers, custom tournament team pages, and Supersampling Mode on PS4 Pro. No official release date was given for it yet, but we do know it is currently in beta testing for some.
