PS4 Pro 5.50 update adds supersampling support for 1080p displays

Days Gone,NoobFeed,Sony

The biggest update to come with 5.50 is the support for supersampling on PS4 Pro.

Clocking in at just 400MB, the new PS4 system update brings in supersampling mode (yay!) and a more robust parental controls feature set.

With supersampling mode, some games will render at a higher resolution and then be downscaled to match the HDTV - allowing PS4 Pro owners to leverage the benefits of an image clarity boost even if their PS4 Pro is not connected to a 4K TV.

PS4 Pro users will see a new "supersampling mode" under Settings, which enables those with HDTVs (i.e., 1080p or less) to enjoy an enhanced visual experience when playing some PS4 games.

As a family manager, parent, or guardian, you can now monitor your child's time played (the amount of time they've spent logged in to the PlayStation 4) and set restrictions accordingly. Playtime can even be set to vary depending on the day of the week, for example you could allow your child to play for two hours between 4-7pm during the week and then for 4 hours between 8am-8pm on the weekend.

PS4 owners also now have the option to import custom wallpapers via USB, there are new updates to the library UI, and players can now hide certain applications under the "Purchased" tab.

The PS4's Library app can become easily cluttered once you start adding a lot of games to your collection, but 5.50 aims to make things look a lot tidier.

All abortions performed after 15 weeks must be reported to the Mississippi State Department of Health by a physician. According to the Associated Press , the Mississippi House has passed a bill that would ban abortion after 15 weeks.

There is now a dedicated PS Plus tab too showing all Monthly Free Games you have access to, along with the ability to hide certain apps under the "Purchased" tab - such as old trials or demos of games. From here, you can view online Friends and custom lists. Watch below to see some of the women who are involved in every aspect of PlayStation games, from art and sound design to programming and community management.

This feature builds on the new range of parental controls that were added in patch 5.0.0. You can do this with any image on a USB device.

You can also extend or shorten your child's play time on the day they play.

There are also three new tabs for the Library page. All these features can be accessed on your PS4 via Settings Family Management.

Updates to photo editing allow customized logos and backgrounds with your favorite images.

For those who subscribe to PS Now, Sony's game streaming service, you will finally be able to play background music while streaming the game.

The International Women's Day theme is just the latest inclusive PS4 theme released by Sony, as past year it released an LGBTQ Pride theme to celebrate the annual Pride celebrations.
