PS4 system software 5.00 features detailed

The latest PS4 beta trial starts today – here are the features that testers can get early access to

If you were selected to be a beta tester for the next major PlayStation 4 system software update 5.00 (codenamed NOBUNAGA), today’s the day you can get your hands on the new features. If you were chosen, you’ll receive an email with instructions on how to download the update and get started.

 

Whether you’re in the beta programme or not, we wanted to give a first look at the features included in this update. We’re introducing Family Accounts, making it easier to manage your friends, and adding a variety of new features for broadcast, notifications, messages and much more.

 

Families on PlayStation Network

The existing master/sub-account system is being redesigned to be more family friendly. This new “family on PSN” system will offer a more flexible experience, make it easier to set up PSN accounts for children, and customize parental control settings for each family user. Below are the new features that will be introduced with update 5.00:

 

Family Manager, parents/guardians and child accounts

Each family on PSN will now have a Family Manager. In turn, the Family Manager can promote any other adult in the family to be a parent or guardian.

 

From there, each parent or guardian can customise the parental control levels of each child account, such as restricting certain age ratings or online access.

 

Individual parental controls

Before this update, the same parental controls were applied to all users on the same console, including adults. But with 5.00, all controls (including game age ratings) can be individually controlled for each child account.

 

Friend list management

In place of the current ‘Favourite Groups’ tab, we’re adding a new ‘Custom Lists’ tab on the ‘Friends’ screen.

 

This will allow you to create and edit custom lists of your friends and arrange them into specific groups, based on the games you play, or groups of friends you like to hang out with online. For example, you can create a custom list of your Destiny teammates and easily send them raid invites.

PS4 firmware update 5.00 has been released

By Sherif Saed, Tuesday, 3 October 2017 10:17 GMT

 

The big, anticipated PS4 firmware update 5.00 is now available to download.

 

Firmware version 5.00 for PS4 was announced back in July, with the beta starting in August.

 

It looks like the update is ready for live users, as it’s only just started rolling out on PSN. The download comes in at 374MB, which is small enough.

 

Firmware update 5.00 brings a host of new features. Chief among them is the ability for PS4 Pro owners to stream at 1080p, 60fps through Twitch, and an updated family and accounts management system that allows parents to easily manager other accounts.

Severely underwhelming update, with simple feature additions that should have been included from the beginning.
