Upcoming Update Features PS4 Supersampling Mode

PlayStation 4

Those who signed up and were selected for the beta program should receive an email today with instruction on how to download it and get started. What do you think about these new options coming via PlayStation 4 System Software 5.50? Included in the newest PS4 Update 5.50 we'll see play time management, quick menu enhancements, importing custom wallpapers via USB and more.

For owners of the PlayStation 4 Pro, this update adds a new supersampling mode. These allowed assigned Family Managers to easily control what each individual child plays, watches and views online. They can apply restrictions to ensure the child is only playing for a set amount of time or within set playable hours.

Family managers/guardians have the option to add extra game time through their smartphone or PC. You can zoom and crop the image before saving it as your background, so no need to fiddle with dimensions or resolution beforehand.

From the dashboard go to Settings Themes Select Theme Custom Select Image USB Storage Device. Once the software goes live for everyone, you'll finally be able to change your PS4 wallpaper to an image from a USB stick, and do the same to customize a tournament or Team page. To set the logo and background, head to Events Teams select your team Edit Team Profile.

This new tab in your Library lets you see which apps are installed on your PS4.

This tab lists all the applications installed on the PS4 system and the tab with your name/avatar lists all the items you've purchased with your PSN ID. The Gold Headset also supports the Headset Companion App, which allows players to load custom audio modes for specific games. For those with a lapsed PS Plus subscription, the titles still appear, but carry an icon showing they are locked until the user re-subscribes.

Aside from this nifty feature that Sony is bringing for PS4 Pro users, there are a few other handful features and benefits coming as well. They can do so via the pulldown menu under the Friends tab in Quick Menu. And when you're on the Media Player or the USB Music Player, "triangle" will work as the shortcut for play or pause, and the "square" button as the volume control. Through it, you're also able to search for games you own but don't now have installed.

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.

With Background Music on PS Now, you'll be able to listen to your favorite tracks while streaming a game on PS Now. Oh well. There will always be another PS4 update!

"Please note performance will vary, as games are optimised differently to take advantage of the power of the PS4 Pro".

Supersampling Mode on PS4 Pro: This feature will no doubt be the one to get PS4 users the most excited.
