New PS4 5.50 Update Makes Organizing Games Easier, Adds PS4 Pro Functionality

New PS4 5.50 Update Makes Organizing Games Easier, Adds PS4 Pro Functionality

The beta for the PlayStation 4's next major system software update 5.50 releases today for users selected for the beta program. In the meanwhile, details on what the update will include have been revealed.

Along with the time management feature, Sony is introducing some design improvements for the Library section.

One of the key features included is Play Time Management which allows users to set limits on when and for how long an individual child can play for.

One of the primary complaints on the original Gold Headset was that the foldable hinges were flimsy and would break over time. Two, make gameplay accessible within set hours. The child will receive notifications telling them when the time is about to expire so they can save and quit their game. The family managers/guardians also have the option to add extra game time via their smartphone or PC. In addition to that, the family manager/guardians can choose whether or not to automatically log the child out of their PS4 once their playtime is over.

After Redskins trade for Smith, cornerback becomes an immediate need
A number of teams, including the Jets , Broncos , Browns, Dolphins, Cardinals, Bills etc. are all potential landing spots. The transaction itself, however, can not be completed until March 14 at 3 p.m., the first day of the new league year.

Version 5.5 also adds several new tabs to Library, including "This PS4", which lists all the apps that are installed on your system, and a tab with your name and avatar, which lists all the apps you've purchased with your PSN ID. As someone who participates in numerous betas, trials, and demos, my library is a mess - filled with applications I'll never use more than that initial period.

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. Now players can view their friends (and who is already online) in the Quick Menu. When listening to music on PS4, users can now access certain shortcuts from the 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. Side benefit: that way you can see at a glance what games you'll lose access to if your PS Plus subscription ends, which is both practical and a clever little way for Sony to say "you sure you wanna cancel that sub?" Notifications can be deleted at the press of a button. This is accomplished via a new USB storage device option on the Themes area of the Settings menu. You'll also be able to import custom wallpapers from a USB stick to use as your Home Screen, as well as your own logo or background for your Tournaments team page.

Events Teams select your team Edit Team Profile.

Among the biggest new features is Supersampling on PS4 Pro, which is ideal if you don't own a 4K TV. Some games already have supersampling as part of their PS4 Pro Enhanced features, though this new setting will bring that same experience to games that don't already include that feature.
