Upcoming Update Features PS4 Supersampling Mode

The beta invitations for the PS4 supersampling, coming with update 5.50, have gone out and reveal that the new graphics mode will be part of the new firmware.

If you've not been accepted into the beta, fret not, as Sony has provided a sneak preview of some of the major features you can expect when update 5.50 arrives. If you signed up and were selected for the beta program, you'll receive an email with instructions on how to download and get started.

You can see a full breakdown of PS4 system update 5.50 in the gallery below.

The purchase section isn't the only spot to get an overhaul - also included in PS4's System Software Update 5.50 are a healthy dose of "Quick Menu Enhancements". Play Time Management will probably be the feature that parents of little gamers will appreciate.

The new Play Time Management feature will let family managers and others set as guardians keep tabs on their child's playtime each day. But perhaps the headline addition is a supersampling mode on PS4 Pro. Notifications will be sent to children while they're playing so they know they should save and quit. This allows you to check out how many hours your child is playing games, and you can limit the amount of time that are playing. Two new tabs have also been added to the console's library, making it easier to see what specific apps that have been installed, and what ones have just been purchased.

The "This PS4" tab lists every app now installed on the PS4. The PS4 section lists all of the apps and games now installed on the console, while the tab with your avatar and name shows what has been purchased with your PSN account. Users can play these games again once they have re-subscribed to the service.

Police have not said where the girl go the semi-automatic handgun or why she brought it to the downtown campus. The teenage boy was shot in the head and was in stable but critical condition at an area hospital.

Another helpful organizational feature lets players hide apps from their library.

Users will also be allowed to hide certain apps under the "Purchased" tab by pressing "Options", including betas, trials or demos that they would prefer not to be shown.

The Quick Menu is being made, well, more quick to navigate in update 5.5 with the ability to access custom friends lists.

Other improvements include further options for the PlayStation 4 Quick Menu, including volume controls for music and some friends list changes. When listening to Spotify on PlayStation Music, the Square buttons act as the shortcut for volume control.

Users will be able to permanently remove old notifications from their PS4 - for better organisation and management.

Meanwhile, the update lets you import your own images via USB stick to use as custom wallpapers. You can zoom and crop the image before saving it as your background, so no need to fiddle with dimensions or resolution beforehand. Xbox One added play limits past year with the Creators Update, and the Xbox One X hardware has been able to supersample games since last November.
