I know what you’re thinking: You’ve been playing so much “No Man’s Sky” on your PS4 that you want to put the rest of your games on the console’s home screen in a folder because you don’t need them anymore.
- Hello Games
Or, perhaps you’d like to share your “Overwatch” plays of the game on Twitter, but the 10-second video limit isn’t enough to showcase your skills.
Luckily for you, both of those concerns and many others will be addressed in an upcoming PS4 system software update. The 4.00 update is going live this week, and the PlayStation Blog has a list of the biggest upcoming features:
- New system backgrounds A generally cleaned up (but not drastically different) home menu. A new Quick Menu (press and hold the PlayStation button) will only take up part of the screen and allow you to customize what information it shows, like your friends list and parties. Enhanced Spotify connectivity using the new Quick Menu, which will allow you to more easily queue up tunes while you play. Hitting the share button will now bring up a streamlined menu that allows 140-second video uploads to Twitter instead of just 10-second uploads. You can organize your apps and games into folders on the PS4 home screen. All PS4 consoles are now enabled with high-dynamic range (or HDR) support, meaning games and movies can look better on TVs that support the feature. The ability to transfer all your data to a new PS4 Pro via a wired connection when the console comes out on November 10.
There are also a couple of other small improvements to the trophy system and user profiles.
These are smart updates, obviously. The PS4 home screen gets a little cluttered when you have too many games, so folders will alleviate that. I’ll also be happy to share my great “Overwatch” moments on Twitter now that I have more than 10 seconds of video to work with.
System update 4.00 goes live on PS4 on Tuesday, September 13.
