PS4's 5.50 Update Out Now With New PSVR Icons

PS4 firmware update 5.50 is now live for all

PS4 Firmware 5.50 Changelog

After a pretty lengthy beta period, Sony slipped out PlayStation 4 firmware update 5.50 today like flatulence in a busy lift. The update is 459MB. This is one of the most requested features from the PlayStation community, but Sony remains tight-lipped.

The parental controls allow parents to restrict certain hours in the day, stopping children playing very late at night, for instance, along with allowing them to monitor how long games have been played for. They can see exactly for how much time the children have been playing, how much time is left and they can fine tune the allocated play time, logging out the child when playtime is over, with a warning beforehand (thus allowing them to save and exit).

The update adds three new tabs to the Library page as well. This feature also makes it easy to search and find games you've already purchased but have not yet installed.

Another feature lets users hide specific apps in the purchased tab. All of your free PlayStation Plus games are now collected in one place in the library tab. If you don't have a now active PS+ subscription, the PS+ logo with a padlock next to it will appear, letting you know you don't now have access to a game. This will allow people who have downloaded betas or demos of games to hide those from the Library.

For the PS4 Pro users with 1080p TVs, a new Supersampling option is available. In other words, Supersampling will make games look better on HDTVs. This feature can also be accessed via a smartphone or tablet for monitoring on the go.

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.

There are also a number of smaller additions in the 5.50 update.

There is now the option to set custom wallpapers from an USB stick connected to the PS4. US Gamer reached out to Sony for comment, and they replied with "Days Gone will now be releasing in 2019 and we will keep you updated on the launch date". Most of the updated titles available at launch focused on 4K presentation and HDR support.
