Many may recall the PS4 5.50 Beta Signups that Sony held last month, well this weekend kicked off the first version to official PS4 Beta testers who naturally leaked some details on it to the Interwebs as can be seen below.
One of the big features thus far is PlayStation 4 Pro supersampling, which makes the PS4 Pro even sexier to those who don’t have a 4K TV yet.
To quote from PSU.com on the details: “It means that when you run games that have a higher resolution than 1080p on your 1080p TV, the image will be better than it is right now following PS4 update 5.50.
The official description from this Polish screenshot (below) reads: Supersampling mode allows you to get picture quality comparable with 4K even when connecting PS4 Pro to a TV with a resolution of 2K or below.
The effect depends on the game- not every improvement will be noticeable. In some games, you can also reduce the frame rate per second.”
Here’s a partial changelog from PS4 v5.50 Beta testers via GearNuke.com, to quote:
- You can now delete notifications that you received so they are no longer floating on the dashboard.
- You can now hide games that you purchased in your library.
- No longer beta/demo will keep taunting you as purchased games.
- You can now turn on notifications through a shortcut once friends become available online.
- You can enable an option that allows every game that runs at a higher resolution on the PS4 Pro to get supersampling down to 1080p.
- You can now create Teams on PS4 for various social activities like participating in a Tournament or setting up a chat.
