Bend Studios' first big home console project, Days Gone has been delayed from a release this year until 2019.

For example, parents will be able to allow their children to play only during a specific time of the day, or they can decide the length of time their children will be allowed to play. You can now also use images from a USB stick as a custom wallpaper and as a Team Logo or a tournament page background. A tab with the name/avatar of the now logged in profile will show the games and apps that are owned by that specific person, even if they aren't installed. This feature also makes it easy to search and find games you've already purchased but have not yet installed.

The update adds three new tabs to the Library page as well.

At the PS4 Pro's launch, the main problem with it was the scarcity of enhancements for those who still game on TVs with a resolution of 1080p.

Another nice new feature is better control of the library. This lets users hide apps or demos they don't want to show up in their library. To access the new Supersampling features, look in the Settings menu. Custom friends lists are also now accessible from the Quick Menu and you can permanently remove old notifications from the system. You'll need a USB flash drive with photos loaded on it in order for this to work, but assuming you've got this, the process is fairly simple.

To download the 5.50 update, simply turn your PS4 on and make sure you're connected to the internet. In addition, the latest update adds shortcuts for music playback: square for volume control on Spotify and the Media Player and triangle for play or pause. The new software doesn't bringing any sweeping UI changes; but there are some interesting features worth exploring. What would you like to see added in the next update?

We don't know yet how many titles support this mode, but it should offer a significant visual upgrade.
