The beta is here and these are the key features


The PlayStation 4's latest system update is hitting beta testers today which means we finally get an idea of what the new OS contains.

One of the key features included is Play Time Management which allows users to set limits on when and for how long an individual child can play for. Managing Playtime is easy; go to Settings Family Management on your PS4, or log into your PlayStation account on your web browser from your PC or smartphone, to check and manage your child's playtime each day. If needed, the family manager/guardians can apply playtime restrictions to make sure that the child is only playing for a set amount of time or within set playable hours. Children will be sent notifications throughout their play with regards to how much time they have left so that they can save and quit in time. You'll also be able to access media shortcuts - when using Spotify on the console, for example, opening the Quick Menu and pressing square will allow you to control the volume. There's also name/avatar tab that showcases all the apps you have purchased with your PSN ID, as well as a PS Plus tab displaying all the free games you have nabbed from the monthly list. The new system software will introduce supersampling for Ps4 Pro, play time management, library UI improvements and more. As we previously reported, this includes a custom Tournaments team page that can be found in the Events sections, as well as Supersampling for everyone with a PS4 Pro and no 4K TV. But perhaps the headline addition is a supersampling mode on PS4 Pro. The main new feature seems to be a slightly updated design, and a giant "NEW" on the front of the box, lest you forget for a few minutes that this was in fact an item fresh off the production line. Once the image has been imported from USB, users can zoom, crop and preview them. If we do a bit of quick math we see that the attach rate for PS Plus subscribers is about 42.7% - Sony says it has sold 73.6 million PS4s cumulatively worldwide. As reported back in January, those who have a PS4 Pro but not a 4K TV can still take advantage of games that render to higher resolution.
