PS4 System Update 4.00 Details Revealed
Sony has revealed details for the version 4.00 system update for PlayStation 4, which will refresh the console’s user interface, update menus, and add folders.
Codenamed ‘Shingen,’ the update will soon enter a public beta. Here’s a full changelog:
- The UI’s been changed to be “more refined and easy to use,” with a new What’s New menu, new system backgrounds, updated pop-ups, and new system icons. It’ll retain the current look and feel
- The quick menu (accessed by holding the PS button) now only covers a portion of the screen, with online statuses being added along with shortcuts to other menus. It can also be customized to include your most-needed shortcuts.
- Also made to cover a portion of the screen, the Share menu now saves your last uploaded-to social network, and increases the maximum length of Twitter videos to 140 seconds.
- Folders can now be created on the main menu and Library. The Library will also now only show games and apps currently installed, with the new Purchased tab containing other purchased content. New sorting options have also been added to the Library.
- Your trophy collection can be viewed offline, while players can also reveal the name of Hidden Trophies.
- User profiles now allow you to compare yourself with other players, with background images being added as personalization.
According to Sony, these features are only the ones being added in the beta, with other features coming in the full release.
