Supersampling, UI Updates, and More

Upcoming Update Features PS4 Supersampling Mode

A select few people, starting today, have access to the beta program and all of its awesome new features that Sony has chose to share with us today via a sneak peek.

Playtime restrictions can be applied to impose a certain amount of playable hours, with notifications alerting children during gameplay so they know when to save their progress and quit. 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. 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. It now includes two new tabs with the "This PS4" tab, and the "PS Plus" tab. You can also zoom and crop your images so they look flawless on your dashboard.

One of my favorite new features is that you can now use your own custom wallpaper by plugging in a USB device. If your PS Plus membership is expired, a PS Plus icon with a lock will appear next to your game so you'll know you can not play the game until you've re-subscribed. "This PS4" will show only the applications that are now installed on your system - as in, the ones that you'll actually be interested in seeing 90 percent of the time - with further subdivisions for games and apps.

Broadcom, Qualcomm Seen Losing Content In Next iPhones
That may be so, but the fact is demand for iPhone X cooled quickly before Christmas, as several market observers have pointed out. With iPhone X , Apple has already started this transition; some iPhone X models are already shipping with Intel's XMM7480 models.

Some new things have been added to the quick menu and you can now play background music while playing games on PlayStation Now. If PS Plus membership is expired, a PS Plus icon with a lock will appear next to the games until users have re-subscribed. Under Setting Family Management, you'll see options to manage playtime for each day.

Other features coming along with this update include enhancements to the Quick Menu, notifications, and new customization options for Tournaments team pages. But perhaps the headline addition is a supersampling mode on PS4 Pro.

This update will give you the ability to delete old notifications for better organization and management. Outside of a few games like Horizon: Zero Dawn, PS4 Pro owners without a 4K TV on the other hand, have been left in a lurch in terms of supersampling since the system was released in late 2016.

Fiji beat Wales 28-0, Spain 24-12 and Australia, winners of last weekend's Sydney tournament, 26-15. It's really important that we keep on learning, growing and finding new ways to get better.

PS4 Pro users will see a new "supersampling mode" under Settings, which enables those with HDTVs (i.e., 1080p or less) to enjoy an enhanced visual experience when playing some PS4 games.

Sony notes: Certain games' image clarity may not improve with this feature. It features some (limited) options for modifying the image you have, such as zooming and cropping.

Make sure to head over to the PlayStation Blog to get a full rundown on each of firmware 5.50's features.
