The biggest update to come with 5.50 is the support for supersampling on PS4 Pro. In 'Options, ' you can hide content including betas, trials or demos of games that you may not be going back to. There's also the ability to supersample for PS4 Pro owners which is pretty cool.

Moreover, all PS4 consoles now have a "Play Time Management" feature, which allows parents t0 set a time limit on how long their children can be on the console. Beta testers have been playing around with the new features for a while but now it is available to the general audience. Let's see what this new update has to bring. Plus, it adds a PS VR icon next to games on your list that's compatible with Sony's virtual reality headset. This should make it easier to search for games you have purchased but haven't downloaded yet.

This update also adds a new PS Plus tab to the Library, which clarifies what games you own from PS Plus' Monthly Free Games.

The update adds three new tabs to the Library page as well.

There is now the option to set custom wallpapers from an USB stick connected to the PS4. Supersampling will allow for games that are capable of running in 4K to downscale at match whatever TV you are using. Certain games already have "supersampling" benefits as part of their "PS4 Pro Enhanced" feature set, but this new mode can enhance the experience for those games that don't already have the feature. This has been changed to 2019 now with an update to the website which points towards a potential delay, although something that technically wasn't announced by Sony.
