PS4 Firmware Update 5.50 Now Available, Adds Play Time Management and More

This feature builds on the new range of parental controls that were added in patch 5.0.0.

The update also allows players to search for games they own but don't have installed, and hide expired betas and demos from the list of Purchased content.

"Parents today are really trying to limit screen time for kids and contextualize it". There's also the ability to supersample for PS4 Pro owners which is pretty cool. Plus, it adds a PS VR icon next to games on your list that's compatible with Sony's virtual reality headset. Players can control music volume in the Quick Menu, as well as pausing and playing tracks. Just go to Notifications and press the "triangle" or "Options" button to open up a menu that will allow you to select a single or multiple notifications you'd like to delete. You can also zoom and crop your images so they look ideal on your dashboard.

There are plenty of free PlayStation themes on the PlayStation Network if this new addition gets you thinking about new looks for your system.

Tournament Page - This has been improved to allow customization of your team logo, name, background and to filter through events that interest your team. PS4 version 5.50 comes with a supersampling mode for the Pro console, which shows games at a higher resolution and with four times the amount of visual and color info than usual. Custom logos and backgrounds can be added via a USB drive. Games that weren't programmed to take advantage of the PS4 Pro's second, more powerful GPU cluster didn't initially benefit. If the update doesn't automatically install, go to Settings and find the System Software Update option. The PS4 Pro is still best-paired with a 4K television set, but this improved image quality for older/cheaper TVs is still great to see.

Dreams is a new game from LittleBigPlanet developer MediaMolecule, and the theme's image has been created by Dreams artist Maja-Lisa Kehlet.
