You'll soon be able to start streaming to Twitch at 1080p and 60fps after the PlayStation 4 firmware update 5.0.
Our colleagues at Eurogamer got their hands on a copy of the firmware 5.0 update notes which includes a list of new changes to features like the master/sub account system, how user following works, and a notifications on the PS4 quick menu.
For starters, the update will allow 5.0 users to stream to Twitch at a higher resolution. However this feature is limited only to those with the PlayStation 4 Pro who can already use Remote Play and Share Play at 1080p and 60fps.
The master/sub account system, for family accounts, will also now allow for multiple adult accounts in a family, with the power to set parental controls for individual child accounts. So if you have a bigger family with kids at different ages, a parent will be able to set up individual restrictions, and spending limits per child. Perhaps more spending power for your favorite child?
Next is the changes to following user accounts, which is currently limited to only official or developer accounts. After the update users will be able to follow anyone, with added options to set followers to only friends or anybody, and you'll also be able to block users.
Sony's update document states that this is to "encourage more sharing of content and more interactions." Basically, this is so that social video shares have a better chance of spreading or going viral.
Lastly, notifications will be added to the Quick Menu so you won't have to back out to the home screen if you want to check the status of your video game downloads, or other notifications.
No word yet on when the new firmware update will drop, but it's expected to be sometime soon, alongside a new version of the PlayStation mobile App with an improved design. Presumably something away from the older PSN aesthetic.
