PlayStation 4 update lets parents boot kids from playing

PS4 Exclusive 'Days Gone' Delayed into 2019

Sony has officially released PS4 firmware update 5.50.

Previously, if you had a PS4 Pro connected to a 1080p display, the console would set the internal render to 1080p even if the game was capable of higher resolutions. Please note performance will vary, as games are optimized differently to take advantage of the power of PS4 Pro.

As revealed by the PlayStation Blog, the God of War PS4 Pro Enhancements include, among others, dynamic 4K resolution achieved through the upscaling technique of checkerboard rendering, which sure steps up the game for games of its caliber on the console.

Two new tabs are being added to Library to make it easier for you to see which apps you've installed and purchased.

Supporting this feature should be a relatively straightforward affair. However, considering the similarities in setting with zombie-like creatures in both games and a grim battle for survival, it looks like 2019 might be the year of the zombie on PlayStation 4. The new software doesn't bringing any sweeping UI changes; but there are some interesting features worth exploring.

We're introducing Play Time Management, which will allow family managers (and adult family members who are set as guardians) to manage PS4 playtime for child family members on family on PSN.

Another cool addition is that notifications will be sent to children during gameplay so that they know when they should save and quit. Being able to see what your friends are up to can also be accessed on a custom friends list. These can be imported from a USB storage device and can contain a team logo, team cover images, background image for the home screen, or image for the message group.

All in all, a solid set of improvements.
