PS4 Pro will make more games look better on older TVs

PS4 Pro will make more games look better on older TVs

Play Time Management is a new feature which will infuriate children as it allows parents to set limits on when and for how long each individual child can play for. This new feature will come under the console's parental controls and will allow Family Manager profiles to set limits on when their children can play and how long they're able to do so. The child will receive notifications telling them when the time is about to expire so they can save and quit their game.

For example, a parent can decide that their child is allowed to play their console for a total of two hours each day, but not play at all after 10pm. With the option enabled, games will be rendered at a higher resolution, before being downscaled to match the TV.

The main reason why this is big news is that it should bring supersampling support to games that do not already support the feature, which previously made these games' PS4 Pro upgrades only visible to 4K TV owners.

The PlayStation library will also see some updates making it easier to navigate through your available games. If your PS Plus membership is expired, a PS Plus icon with a lock will appear next to your game so you'll know you can not play the game until you've re-subscribed. Under the PSN ID, there is a new "PlayStation Plus" option that will segregate your monthly free games from ones you have already purchased. If your subscription has lapsed, games on the system will be shown with a lock icon on top of the PS Plus logo.

Users will also be allowed to hide certain apps under the "Purchased" tab by pressing "Options", including betas, trials or demos that they would prefer not to be shown. You can import your own images to PS4 from a USB stick and set it as your wallpaper. "In addition, the family manager/guardians can choose whether or not to automatically log the child out of their PS4 once their playtime is over", wrote SIEA Vice President of PlayStation Marketing Mary Yee on the Official PlayStation Blog.

Belichick still mum on Butler benching
Butler, a former Pro Bowler (2015) and second-team All-Pro (2016), will be moving on in free agency next month. In the end we have to make the decisions that we feel are best for the football team.

Whether you're taking part in the beta programme or not, we wanted to give you a first look at some of the features you can expect in this update.

Meanwhile, updates to the Quick Menu promise to help you more quickly access specific friends and control your music. On top of that, pressing the "square" button will let you change up volume controls for both Spotify and PlayStation Music. You can import images from a USB device, and you'll even be able to make adjustments like crop, zoom and so on to fit the dashboard.

Import Custom Wallpapers via USB: Users can now import images and use them as their background wallpaper.

"Please note performance will vary, as games are optimised differently to take advantage of the power of the PS4 Pro".
