Tons of new features included.
While some lucky users can begin experiencing the features of PlayStation 4 Update 5.50 as of today with the rollout of the beta, the rest of us are going to have to settle with a PlayStation Blog rundown of what we can look forward to when, what Sony is calling the “KEIJI” update, finally launches. With the numbering of the update suggesting a half step instead of a complete overhaul, expectations should be kept in check.
Play Time Management is introduced, and largely lifts the parental controls features right from the Nintendo Switch. Guardians can set time limits or windows for play, manage or add time from their smartphone or PC and force log-out the child if needed. The quick menu will see some adjustments for friends and music controls, and background music can now be played with PS Now title as well.
Also interestingly, the PS4 Pro receives a system level Supersampling mode. Much like what the Xbox One X launched with natively, this will allow the PS4 Pro users with a 1080P set to enjoy a downscaled 4K image, giving them a cleaner image. Many “Pro enhanced” games included this on a software basis, but this brings the feature to the system level for wider compatibility.
You can see a detailed rundown of every feature on the PlayStation Blog, but the ability to customize tournaments team page, set your own images as a home screen background, delete notifications, and library UI tweaks including the ability to hide old content such as the Destiny Beta are all included. What are your thoughts on KEIJI? Let us know down below.
