  • PS4 System Update 5.0 Launched

    ps4 system update 5.0A brand new system update for the PlayStation 4 has been released. PS4 owners can download and install the new 5.0 system update now.

    While moving to 5.0 sounds like quite a big jump, there aren't any significant changes in this latest system update. Unlike previous big OS updates for the PS4, the 5.0 system update puts a focus on backend fixes.

    The visual changes are very minor, but we'll discuss what has changed below.

    The biggest feature of the PS4 5.0 system update is the support for Twitch streaming up to 1080p resolution for those with a PS4 Pro. If you own a PS4 Pro, you'll be able to stream your game directly to Twitch at 60 frames per second and in 1080p resolution. You are now able to follow users in PS4's What's New feed. Previously, it was only possible to follow verified users from this feed.

    A couple of changes have also been made to the notifications system on the PS4 5.0 system update. Starting in 5.0, PS4 owners can now prevent notification pop-ups from appearing during video playback. People will now also be able to leave a party and check notifications from within the PS4 Quick Menu.

    Sony has also added reworked parental controls. PS4 owners can now create a 'family' account and have different labels for that account. Labels include parent/guardian and child. Each label can have its own set of permissions.

    What are your thoughts on this system update? It's not very exciting, but the few changes may prove useful for some PS4 owners.

  • Dark Souls 3 Gets New Patch

    dark souls 3 patch pvpA brand new patch has hit Dark Souls 3 that adds a number of new PVP features and increases the frame rate for PS4 Pro owners.

    The frame rate increase for PS4 Pro owners will be automatically activated, so players will not need to do anything to make use of their PS4 Pro console. As for the time being, there aren't any additional graphics settings for PS4 Pro owners.

    The new 1.11 patch adds PvP arenas for the game's Undead Match modes. The new PvP arenas are called Dragon Ruins and Grand Roof. The new patch has also made it possible for friends to stick together on the same team. Previously, players could join games with their friends in, but players were assigned to teams randomly.

    It should be noted that the new Dragon Ruins and Grand Roof PvP maps are exclusive for those who own the Ashes of Ariandel DLC pack or The Ringed City DLC pack, the latter of which will officially launch on March 28.

    The new Dark Souls 3 patch has also made a number of smaller gameplay tweaks and overall bug fixes. Many balancing tweaks have also been implemented in the latest 1.11 patch, and some preparations for the upcoming The Ringed City DLC have been made.

    The new patch went live on March 24 for PS4 and Steam players. Have you managed to try out the two new PvP maps yet? If you have, let us know your thoughts on them.

  • New Infamous Second Son Pro Patch Landed

    infamous-second-son

    A new patch for Infamous Second Son has been launched and it makes a number of changes to support the new PS4 Pro console. The new patch also applies to the standalone DLC pack Infamous First Light.

    Firstly, the patch for Infamous Second Son is a total of 3.6GB in size and it simply features a texture and frame rate update. The new update now allows PS4 Pro owners to play in HDR and 4K resolution.

    The Infamous First Light patch on the other hand is a little smaller, weighing in at 2.5GB and essentially provides the same HDR and 4K resolution support. The new updates for both versions of Infamous don't upscale the original textures, either. The developers have revisited the game to offer brand new 4K resolution textures - the detail and quality on these textures will certainly surpass that of the previous texture quality by a long shot.

    According to the developers, the new 4K resolution for Infamous Second Son look absolutely phenomenal. Jason Connel, from Sucker Punch, the developer behind Infamous mentioned that, "The powers look amazing. Delsin's smoke powers and Fetch's neon powers are particularly impressive."

    "Watching the original effects now in 4K and HDR, I notice details I didn't even know existed. For example, when Fetch does a ground pound, waves of brilliantly flickering particles erupt in all directions. We even improved photo-mode to let you pause on powers. My favorite is winding up Fetch's ultimate neon bomb and then quickly activating photo mode to pause and observe the thousands of emissive particles bits forming around her."
