PS4 Firmware Update 5.50's New Features Revealed

Posted February 07, 2018

A PS Plus tab will also be added, showing what games are in your library via PlayStation Plus. The family managers/guardians can also set the PS4 to log out once the playtime session is over, and increase or decrease game time on the go, via the web portal.

The changes coming with the PS4 5.50 update affect the system across the board. Such is the case with the upcoming 5.50 firmware update (codenamed KEIJI).

There's no word as to when system update 5.50 will leave beta and go live for all PlayStation 4 owners.

The update, which is available today as part of Sony's beta program, adds new play time management, library and quick menu features to the console. A new USB storage device option has been added to the Themes area of the Settings menu.

Redskins considering using franchise tag on Kirk Cousins again
Finally, they'd forfeit a 2019 compensatory draft pick if they ultimately pulled the tag rather than letting him walk now. By doing so, it would allow the Redskins to trade Cousins instead of him walking away as an unrestricted free agent.

The update also lets users import their own images via USB in order to create custom wallpapers. Notifications will be sent to the player about the impending cut off allowing them to find a place to save, but there's also the option for an immediate sign out as well.

The other features are mostly there to help with clutter and to make finding games in your library easier. If your PS Plus membership is expired, a PS Plus icon with a lock will appear next to your game so you know which games you can play if you re-subscribe. This means you can hide all those betas, trials, and demos that you didn't like.

The Friends tab in the Quick Menu now lets you quickly access specific friends, and it'll also show which of them are online.

Other improvements include further options for the PlayStation 4 Quick Menu, including volume controls for music and some friends list changes. Speaking of music, you'll be able to listen to tunes in the background while streaming games on PS Now.

West Ham director sacked over race remarks
Hernandez has started 13 games in the Premier League so far this season, out of which 11 of them came under Bilic. David Moyes refused to blame West Ham's off-field turmoil for their surrender at Brighton .

This includes the ability to import images via USB and then modify pictures to get the ideal look. 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. This process involves a game being rendered at a higher resolution (up to 4K, in the case of certain PS4 games) and then downscaled to your display's resolution, thereby providing greater clarity.

Finally, PS4 update 5.50 throws in Supersampling, which as previously reported allows users to enjoy select games with improved visuals even when played on a TV packing a resolution of 1080p or below. "Please note performance will vary, as games are optimised differently to take advantage of the power of PS4 Pro".

More importantly, the update is introducing the ability to delete old notifications as well as support for Background Music on PlayStation Now. It's nice to know how many hours of our life we've sunk into our hobby.

South Sudan is the worlds youngest country, and has been supported by the US since it's inception in 2011. It is a largely symbolic move, as the United States does not export arms to South Sudan.
