Sony is currently running through a closed beta for the PS4's upcoming 5.50 system update, and today the company has disclosed exactly what it contains.

The update includes:

  • Play Time Management: The ability to restrict a child's total playtime or as it happens. Time can also be added via the console's app.
  • New Tabs/UI: You can further search through your Library by seeing the games you've installed, those you've purchased but haven't installed, and all the apps bought with your PSN ID. PS Plus members can also see which free games you own from the subscription. In the Library you can also hide purchased apps.
  • Supersampling Mode For PS4 Pro: This allows those PS4 Pro owners with an HDTV but not a 4K TV to get an "enhanced visual experience when playing some PS4 games." Sony says that some games that don't even have the supersampling feature may look better, but some won't.
  • Other Features: Import custom wallpapers, tournament team-page customization, bulk notifications deleting, PlayStation Now background music, and quick menu enhancements.
