PS4 Pro receives Supersampling in latest firmware update 5.50 beta

Play Station 5 rumors news: PS4 successor to arrive in 2020 at $399?

Sony has revealed some features in an upcoming PlayStation 4 update that include tools for play time management, custom wallpapers, and library enhancements. The Play Time Management component lets parents set time controls for how long their children can play on their PlayStation console on a daily basis. To do this, you just go to Settings and select Family Management on your PS4. Play Time Management will alert the user when their time is running low, so they aren't kicked in the middle of a game without time to save.

Other updates include new tabs added to help users manage the installed items on their PS4 system. You'll also be able to customize your Tournaments team page with a team logo or background from your USB.

It is also easier to see your PlayStation VR games amongst all installed titles, thanks to a new PSVR icon that appears on their tiles.

We're adding a function that will allow you to hide certain applications under the "Purchased" tab in the Library.

If you ever want to quickly access specific friends in your custom list, you'll be able to do so via the pulldown menu under the Friends tab in Quick Menu. In addition, you can also prevent recurring ones coming back again. When users are listening to Spotify on PlayStation Music, they can use the "square" button as a shortcut for volume control. Just be aware, similar to when playing a game on disc or via digital download on PS4, background music may not always be available.

You now have the option to batch delete notifications. Firmware v5.50 introduces several changes to the user interface and makes the PS4 Pro updates to some games useful for those who don't own a 4K resolution display. Supersampling allows games and media to render at a higher resolution and then downscaled to fit the HDTV.

Registration for the beta test of a "major" new PS4 update recently began, and now the beta is officially underway. This upscaling followed by downscaling doesn't come close to creating a true 4K graphics experience like that which you'd see on say the Xbox One X with select games and a 4K TV, and it doesn't even deliver the sort of upscaled 4K UHD graphics that the PS4 Pro is capable of when used with native 4K televisions, but it should slightly, noticeably enhance visuals in the games it works for on a 1080p TV. Please note performance will vary, as games are optimised differently to take advantage of the power of PS4 Pro. It's also possible that the full release could include more features.
