The feature that has been promised for so long now is finally here! Along with many other nice tidbits!
Aw yeah This is gonna be awesome! Can't wait to try this
Same! Excited for this update along with the trophy stuff. Tho the who "screenshot for every trophy" will be a storage nightmare for hunters. Hoping they at least give us an option to select which ones we want personally.
Great Update. Sadly Video Chat still missing.
Video Chat is coming through an app called ooVoo. http://www.thesixthaxis.com... Shouldn't need firmware for it.
@Bitbydeath....thats right I totally forgot. Thanks for the reminder.
I hope you can turn off the screenshot feature. I don't care to share my trophies. I don't care for trophies at all I just play the game.
Great news that this is real, although deleting 0% trophies only applies to PS4 games and not 0% PS3 and Vita games of which I have many. :(
@Mr Pumble You've got to be kidding me! I was so eager to get this update so I could delete 20+ 0% PS3 games! Are you sure?
@UltraNova Someone ask "For trophy deletion, will it apply to trophy lists across all platforms? So ps3, and vita included?" PSN guy says "Currently this is a PS4 only feature." Maybe if enough people tell them they will add PS3 & Vita deletion too! http://blog.us.playstation....
+bub for being helpful! That's a shame though, I hope they fix this soon...
Very nice... Welcome to xbox 1... 12 months ago... Just kidding.
Its all confirmed! Edit (Highly Relevant lol)
Custom controls... THANK U! Lazy developers were getting on my nerves. Now then, we can put some use to that touch pad and the gyroscope
yeah...! It's YUKIMURA Sanada! (Samurai Warriors and Sengoku Basara)
Remote play at 60fps THANK YOU BASED GOD!
Sounds nice but even 2 meters next to my router the stream sometimes stutters and breaks, so here's hoping that stream-stability overall is improved, otherwise I won't be having much use for 60fps if they are just as broken.
Sounds like you need a new router or a faster internet connection. Probably the router though, you want one that says it actually supports gaming. I noticed some routers say this when I was looking to buy a new one and they say if they are good or great at it.
How is your ps4 connected to the router? I had loads of problems when I was using WiFi but when I switched over to cable the connection was a lot stronger with no drop out.
PS4 is wired. The router is a fairly decent fritz-box. Data streams to and from pc is very good, to my cell phone too, only VITA does not seem to be able to keep a constant connection. It is random though. Sometimes it runs butterly smooth for 15 Minutes and all of a sudden the VITA seems to remember it's problem and wil stutter every couple seconds. For me it is unusable at this point. Also you can connect the VITA directly with the PS4 wirelessly, without taking the extra step of the router. Still the exact same thing happens.
You can try directly connecting the vita to the ps4. it wont use your route. it can improve stability but might lose you some distance. this could also determine if its a router problem or maybe just interference from something else.
Thanks, but as I wrote above: I already tried that and at the same distance it gives the same problem. Maybe my VITA is faulty.
Remote Play 60fps and Suspend/Resume for me!
I can't wait to try out the suspend/resume feature. Haven't been able to use share play yet but that's good too! These updates may not be very often, but they're still satisfying enough. What's a little mindboggling is why they haven't done offline trophies yet. Who asked for screenshots? I do like being able to get rid of 0%ers!
I love the features.. I definitely have a few 0% that can be cleaned up on my trophy list. What's the name Yukimura represent?? Is that just what they call it so they don't have to constantly say update 2.50 over and over or is it something entirely different. maybe it's just me but this is the first time I've seen a "word/name" associated with a PS update rather than just a "0.00" numerical code
They did the same with the last fw update. I forget the name but look it up
Where my External HDD support? ?:(
Ps4 just keeps getting better and better.
Man Online friend notfications better be in this update!!!! Also being able to change status to offline I get tired of people sending me text messages and game invites. Sometimes I just like to chill and game.
People brought that up disabling notifications in the comments section. Apparently this option to control notifications has been in the settings menu for quite some time.
Text to speech! Yes!! Now writign messages won't be a PITA
I'd rather be able to delete any trophy, not just 0%
Yes... also "the new ability to remove games from the Trophy list that have 0% completion." - "remove from list" combined with "Currently this is a PS4 only feature." makes me fear it is just another 'hide'-Feature that won't really delete anything and you will still see those sets on PS3 and VITA, but I hope I'm wrong. After suspend the feature I most looked forward to.
Actually it's more doable than hide , because at 0% you haven't any link to the rest of your database. So it should be easier to remove. The problem when you need to delete a trophy list is that the calcul of your level and the trophy count changes. And that information is stored at multiples places.( both on your console and on sony servers ) Deleting those would open the door for inconsistencies in that system. At 0% this problem goes away ( because it wont change the trophy count nor the number of relations with this specific line in your database ( the one on your console ))
I didn't say it was not doable, but SONY haven't been willing to do it in several years and i kind of doubt that they are willing to really delete it now, and from a data-collecting-point of view I can understand this. It shoots holes into a database even if it is zero-value holes. Also I doubt that the sum of trophy infomation is stored separately. What I would do is set the user-id for 'deleted' trophies to 0-USER-ID. In this case they would disappear from the users DB and the guys at SONY have no holes in the DB plus if they should ever need to they could still easily match the 'deleted' trophies to their respective owners. The insonsistency in sum is not that relevant to me, bacause if you'd sync all your devices you would get an accurate value again. In case of PS3 and VITA it might mean you have to delete the account and set it up anew because both consoles don't have an aprpriate feature to sync missing/deleted sets but if they really just delete 0% sets and it is only active on PS4 I will still see those sets on VITA and PS3 which will give the right sum but still visual inconsitency for my eyes.
I can imagine that some people regret getting the platinum in Hannah Montana.
"It was my lil sister tho"
it's good to see Sony adding new things, but nothing in this update really interest me.
We can Map- button controls, for any game,. -since it's firmware.. -Nice_
I welcome all the awesome features added in 2.50, but at the same time, I can't help but notice the fact that Sony gave the update a name. Not that Yukimura is a bad title or anything, It comes as a surprise is all. Gateway MT6706 2008
Last big update had a name too. Guess it's a new thing. Seems sort of in the vein of Android updates.
Need external hdd support
Next major update should have external HDD and DLNA..think those are the only 2 main features left...Should be out before October based on their update schedule. Personally I put in a 1tb drive the day i got my ps4 so I haven't had a problem.
so no automatic trophy syncronization?
Reading through comments on the source site...am I the only one who doesn't give a rat's about online notifications? I even play many online games and didn't even notice this feature missing. If my friends being online was pertinent at the time..they would just hit me up once they got on. Not to mention, the PS4 shares all of your activities in the home screen, so it's not hard to find out what people are up to.
Well nobody knows who's on or not unless they stop what they're doing and look at the friends list. That's the problem. If we had notifications when people sign on, or that feature Xbox has where you can let your friends know you're looking for people to play a game with you, it would solve all that. And if it doesn't matter to you, you can just turn it off, like you can do right now. Better to have the option than not at all.
Custom folders DLNA Friends Online/offline notification and custom sub-group friend list sorting *****Appear offline option***** Local and external music & video playback, with more codecs supported than PS3 External HDD support for both backups and running games Custom wallpaper Trophy sorting *****Auto sync trophies***** Offline trophy list Make pancakes and hash browns PLEASE SONY make it happen. It’s been over a year.
Facebook Friend Search: lol, gtfo
Damn I was hoping for DLNA in this, oh well waiting for it in the October update then, in the mean time I would just watch from Plex
Dailymotion? I never view that site lol. Is there any way to just upload your videos directly to the lesser known video site, uh... whats the name... YouTube? Trophy update looks cool, as does suspend/resume. Gonna be a great update!
You can already upload to youtube.
I was never a fan of the suspend/ resume feature on XBone, but OK that's cool. What I would like are some tools. Like functional things. If like the ability to make some folders so that I can organize my library and whatever happened to the wishlist function, I NEED THAT. How about removing icons from my library of game demos and betas ive deleted? Maybe some nice graphical touches also like Xbone did with the GUI. Make some things transparent ALSO. get some quality control on the BS themes they dishing out. They are 99.9% garbage. Upload to Daily motion? LOL. OK, ive been there I think twice last year. Hey, more choices is always good. With YouTube I was satisfied. Sony, please work on the some cool features, I know you promised the suspend/resume and now you are about to deliver, but get to work on making PS4 a cool place to be. XBox got you beat on that. and im not fanning flames im making an observation.
It is so nice that they decide to put a "kick ass japanese name" to each ps4 update, really cool
best updates for the best console, PS4 owners are in forxa great generation of gaming
wish they would add an appear offline option, I like to hide
And still not so much as a mention of DLNA support :( maybe spotify will be in this one as well.
I find the comments for this article to be... very depressing. The PS4 is still missing extremely basic features that should have been there on day 1, and this is yet another update that fails to add anything of real substance.... yet all I see here are consumers declaring their undying love for Sony. Yikes.
This is great news! The only other thing I wish they would have added to the trophies was a progress bar to indicate how much you have left to achieve for certain trophies (ex: 25 out of 100 head shots). Maybe I'm just too demanding! lol
Good for those that want it but honestly I don't give a sh!t. DLNA support is much more useful to me to be honest.
