Sony heeft bekend gemaakt dat de nieuwe firmware voor de PlayStation 4 met versienummer 5.00 uitgerold is voor beta-testers. Met de nieuwe firmware is het onder andere mogelijk op de PS4 Pro om Twitch op een resolutie van 1080p met 60 fps af te spelen. Daarnaast kun je PSN-accounts aanmaken voor kinderen bijvoorbeeld en parental control settings daarvoor customizen. De gehel changelog is als volgt.
Family Manager, Parent/Guardian
Family on PSN now allows multiple adults to be made part of a single family of users. The Family Manager is able to promote a new adult within the family to a Parent/Guardian, who is then able to tweak the parental control level of a child’s account.
Individualised Parental Controls
PS4 update 5.00 now allows all controls to be tailored to each individual child, including game age ratings.
Friend List Management
This replaces the current Favourite Groups tab with a new Custom Lists feature. Here, you can create and edit your friends list, making it easier to manage your PSN buddies and access specific groups. As an example, you can create Destiny-specific custom list for friends who frequently take part in the shooter, allowing you to send them raid invites quickly and efficiently.
Broadcast feature updates
If you own a community, you can now bind your community to your broadcast. When a broadcast is linked to a community, the community button appears on the Live from PlayStation spectator screen. Once a spectator clicks on the community button, they’ll be able to jump directly to your community page to check out the details.
We’ve added a new setting in PlayStation VR: Display Message to Spectators and Spectators’ Comments. Once this is enabled, spectator comments sent during a broadcast is displayed not only in cinematic mode, but also in VR mode. This makes it much easier for VR broadcasters to keep up on comments and communicate with their viewers.
PlayStation 4 Pro
Good news Twitch users: with this update, PS4 Pro will support 1080p 60fps streaming on Twitch.
You’ve already been able to share your favorite music to Twitter and Facebook via PlayStation Music, but now you’ll also be able to share via messages using your PS4. If your friends are on PS4, they can listen to the track right inside the message by booting up Quick Menu, and if they’re on their mobile device, they can jump directly to the Spotify app from the PS Messages app to check out the song.
In addition, if you’re part of multiple message groups, you can now easily leave several groups at once. Just open up Options in the message list, select Leave, and choose the message groups you want to leave.
We’ve added a new setting that allows you to disable pop-up notifications while you’re watching a movie or TV show on your PS4. This setting is off by default, so go to Settings > Notifications to disable notifications and go uninterrupted during your videos.
Quick Menu Updates
If you want to keep an eye out on what’s happening under Notifications, like the progress of your game downloads/installations or new party invites, you can now access this directly from the Quick Menu so you don’t have to step away from your game every time you want to check your notifications.
Virtual Surround Sound on PS VR
PlayStation VR now supports 5.1ch and 7.1ch virtual surround sound on your headphones when watching Blu-rays and DVDs in Cinematic Mode, making for an even more immersive viewing experience
Improved Tournaments Bracket Viewer
We have a new bracket viewer that shows full tournament brackets for Single Elimination and Double Elimination tournaments on PS4. This makes it easier for you to see the current tournament standings.
New System Language Additions
With this update, we’re adding the following system language options on PS4: Czech, Greek, Hungarian, Indonesian, Romanian, Thai and Vietnamese.
