PlayStation 4 Firmware 5.00 Is Out
Sony have released their 5.00 firmware for the PlayStation 4, seven weeks after they started beta testing it with preview program participants.
The new update, which has minor features compared to the whole number firmware revisions from prior years, is available to download and install today on your PlayStation 4. The main feature being advertised in this update is the way family accounts are handled, with multiple adult accounts being able to oversee child accounts, including parental controls. PS4 Pro users can also now stream in 1080p and 60 frames per second.
Previous updates have included things like Suspend/Resume, uploading clips to Twitter, broadcasting to Youtube, folders, and more. The PS4 started with firmware version 1.50 at launch in November 2013 and averages a firmware update per year since. The somewhat muted feature list of the 5.00 update at least hopefully means there won’t be any problems or bugs now that it has been released.
