First PS4 5.0 System Update Details Revealed; Here's What it Does

PlayStation 4 firmware update 5.0 will add 1080p60 Twitch streaming

Sony announced an upcoming system software update for the PlayStation 4, Update 5.0, around mid-July.

According to Eurogamer, who reports to have acquired a copy of update 5.0's release notes, the update also adds the ability to follow any user account without needing a friend request or maxing out your friends list.

There will be an expanded range of options for those with sub/child accounts on their consoles. While neither of those features have yet to be confirmed and detailed by Sony Interactive Entertainment, a recent leak of the patch notes for update 5.0 point toward a lot of other changes coming to the hardware. Decide whether you only want existing friends to follow you or block other users altogether.

The final major change that Eurogamer mentioned is that you'll be able to view system notifications and the status of downloads/uploads from the Quick Menu.

Twitch streaming at 1080p 60fps will be limited to those with the 5.0 firmware update using a PlayStation 4 Pro. There will be settings to prevent non-friends from following you, and users can be blocked as well. Accounts belonging to other PS4s can be sent to these adult accounts so that everyone is collected under the same family account, if desired. First and foremost is the ability to stream 1080p/60fps on Twitch. That means you don't have to retreat to the notification screen in order to check on any of this. All you need to do is access a pop and drop menu that lets you see and manage notifications as well as view uploads/downloads.

Behind-the-scenes support for bundle and compilation discs, with or without add-ons, and discs which support games and add-ons (such as a "Game of the Year Edition"), which do not require developers rework any code.

Overhauled PlayStation App with better performance and design.
