PS4 Version 2.5 (Yukimara)…..What’s In It?

Glad you asked. Here’s the highlights.

Suspend/Resume – The much talked about feature is finally here. Rest mode will suspend your system now, and pressing the PS button on your controller will wake it up where you left off. This is a no brainer really. I don’t know why it wasn’t there at launch.

Back-Up and Restore HDD to USB Drive – Now you can back up files and settings from the HDD to an external USB drive. Useful.

Facebook Upgrades – You can now search for your Facebook friends on the PS4. You may also ask for a friend and real name request all at once. Creating a party will be quicker, and there will be more options to join a game with friends or see what they are up to.

Trophy Enhancements – A screenshot will automatically be taken each time you earn a trophy now. The share button will allow you to share trophies to FB, Twitter. or in a message. Trophy lists can now be sorted by “Earned Date,” “Not Earned,” and “Grade,” and GAMES WITH 0% CAN BE DELETED THANK GOD!

Improved and Expanded Accessibility Options –  Gamers with impaired vision and limited manual dexterity will find new options for ease of play. Customized button assignments for the Dualshock and a zoom feature for pictures and inverted colors will be available for all system functions, apps and games. Text-to-speech and enlarged text will be available across the graphical user interface, including Message and Party, and enlarged text will also be enabled for use in the system’s browser. Bolder fonts and higher contrast UI will be available for all system applications but will not apply to games or third-party apps.

Additional features and updates…..

*              Remote Play and Share Play: For games that support 60 fps, users will be able to stream those games with 60 fps for both Remote Play and Share Play on supported devices.

*             Automatic Installation for System Software Updates: Users will be able to automatically install future system software updates.

*              Sub-Account Upgrade: Users 18 years of age or older with sub-accounts will be able to upgrade to a master account directly on the PS4 system, removing restrictions on chat and enabling users to add funds to their Wallet, purchase content and more.

*              Verified Accounts: Verified accounts for game industry professionals, including developers, producers, designers and community managers will appear with a badge.

*              Dailymotion.com: Players will have the ability to upload video clips directly to Dailymotion via the SHARE button.

There you go. I believe the update goes live tomorrow.
