Upcoming Update Features PS4 Supersampling Mode

The next PlayStation 4 firmware update will make the PS4 Pro a lot more like the Xbox One X. The upcoming software version 5.50 adds a super sampling mode to the PS4 Pro.

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. This feature will allow family managers (and adult family members who are set as guardians) to manage PS4 playtime for child family members on PSN.

Family managers/guardians have the option to add extra game time through their smartphone or PC. Following this, Sony details several of the UI improvements coming in Update 5.50, starting with a "This PS4" tab that lists all applications installed on a PS4, and a tab with players' names/avatars showing all apps purchased with their PSN ID. This will be helpful for items like betas or demos that you probably won't ever use again.

Here's what Sony had to say about the redesigned headset on the PlayStation Blog, "The headset maintains everything you loved, while featuring a new sleek design with refined over-ear cushions that make it even more comfortable for long gaming sessions". As we previously reported, this includes a custom Tournaments team page that can be found in the Events sections, as well as Supersampling for everyone with a PS4 Pro and no 4K TV. Once the image has been imported from USB, users can zoom, crop and preview them.

From the dashboard go to Settings Themes Select Theme Custom Select Image USB Storage Device. To set the logo and background, head to Events Teams select your team Edit Team Profile. The new update will also allow the user to hide certain apps under the "Purchased" tab is in the Library.

Supersampling mode will take games that render to a higher resolution when connected to a 4K TV to downscale to match the HDTV.

Usefully, there's a new PS Plus tab in the Library, which shows you which games you own from the PS Plus monthly free games.

We're closing in on the launch of the next PlayStation 4 system software update.

Whenever you're listening to music on PS4, you'll be able to access certain shortcuts from the Quick Menu.

Finally, new quick menu upgrades allow users to access custom friends lists right in the console's menu, making it easier to see who is online immediately.

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.

Sony detailed the 5.50 update in a blog post. You can also now permanently remove old notifications from the PS4 as well.

It looks like these measures, which include offering a plethora of AAA games month after month on PS4, have worked: subscribers have risen about 2.7% since last quarter.
