Playstation 4 5.0 Update Will Allow 1080-60 Twitch Streaming, And More

The Sony PlayStation 4 Pro is up again for cheaps in Malaysia

Everybody loves a good system software update, and having just heard about Microsoft's wholesale revamp of their console's OS - some of which isn't actually going down too well if you skirt through certain corners of Reddit - now the changes and improvements Sony have planned for system software 5.00 on PS4 have been leaked to Eurogamer.

PlayStation 4 firmware update 5.0 isn't out the wild yet but information on it has been come out ahead of time.

With the upcoming firmware update for the PS4 Pro, the console will let players stream from Twitch at 1080p resolution and 60 frame rates per second. You can already use a Pro for 1080p Remote Play and Share Play.

Moving forward, users will be able to follow any other account, as opposed to being limited to official accounts. You'll also be able to follow whoever you want without needing a friend request to be verified, and without filling up your friend limit.

Players will have the ability to block users, as well as the option to choose whether or not they want anyone or just existing friends to be able to follow their account. There can now be multiple adult accounts, and these can set parental locks on specific accounts so personalize the communications, content, and spending limit of each child.

The final major change that Eurogamer mentioned is that you'll be able to view system notifications and the status of downloads/uploads from the Quick Menu.

Behind the scenes, Sony will add support for bundle and compilation discs, with or without add-ons, and discs which support games and add-ons (such as in a Game of the Year Edition) which don't need developers to rework any code.

No release date has been given for firmware update 5.0.
