PS4 update 4.50 detailed, coming March 9th

Sony has released details of the upcoming PS4 update 4.50, and it’s a big one.

One of the many new features is the ability to install games on external USB harddrives (up to 8TB is supported). Another feature that PS4 Pro users will love is a new “Boost Mode”, that makes regular PS4 games runs faster and better, even if they are not optimized for PS4 Pro.

Those with PS VR headsets will be able to watch 3D Blu-ray movies in VR, and Sony has finally made it possible to use screenshots taken in-game as wallpapers.

There’s also a whole bunch of smaller under-the-hood updates and tweaks that should make the PS4 run better.

The update will be released tomorrow for all PS4 users.

    Is the Boost Mode only for the Pro console?

    • Johnny Star

      Yes.

    • I_LIKE_IT

      Yes as it makes the most of the extra power of the upgraded GPU.

      It does make a difference for frame rates.

      I tested it on the broken ‘Assassin’s Creed Unity’ and it ran smoothly. When I switched ‘Boost Mode’ off the crowded areas slowed the frame rate down a bit.

          ^^^ verbal diarrhea

          • Fingloi Delos reyes

            Its not “verbal” you stupid idiot! its “written”. Use that tiny little mass on your head you called brain before commenting. #SaveTheEarthSpace #SaveTheDiskSpace

          • raptor*plays*pixels

            Elegantly written sentences, Fingloi. By the way, it’s not “written” either, since it was typed on a computer keyboard or tablet/smartphone. Dumbass lol

            So you feel good about yourself figuring that “typed” comment of yours? You must be the most intelligent person in your household! #SaveTheEarthSpace #SaveTheDiskSpace

          • raptor*plays*pixels

            I feel nothing but disdain for Oroku Saki and his foot clan, and I live in a sewer. It’s not hard to be the smartest down here with three asshole brothers who won’t stop farting.

    Got to love the share play feature!!!

    Nice one Sony!!!

    • jfelts

      Share play? Hasn’t that been available for awhile now?

      • I_LIKE_IT

        A friend joining my game without owning a copy of the game I’m playing.

        I thought it was a new feature I just noticed.

        If it’s an old feature sorry, but it’s still awesome!!!

        • CH3SH

          Its an old feature but it got my mate into bordelands 2

  • AaronD12

    Being able to install games onto external storage is great. My PS4 came with a 500GB drive and I was considering replacing its internal drive, when the 4.50 beta showed up. Hooray! I have an external 2TB USB3 drive now on my PS4. The games run great from that drive. (Save files are still on the internal drive.)

  • djape

    only 3yrs after ps4 released! not bad

  • Nick Sciucco

    even when we were getting posts daily, This site was garbage. Sad , it used to be pretty good

  • raptor*plays*pixels

    Oh I get it. This site is supposed to be for retro consoles now 😂

  • CH3SH

  • Sonic200012
