Playstation 4 System Update 2.50 Released March 29, 2015

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

Sony has just brought out the biggest System Software Update yet for the Playstation 4.  The new update, version 2.50, brings two HUGE new features to the PS4, and several other minor updates and changes.

By far the biggest new feature Sony is adding in update 2.50 is the highly anticipated PS4 SUSPEND feature.  First showcased in Feb 2013 when the PS4 was first announced, Sony promises players who use the suspend feature will be able to stop and resume their games immediately without having to sit through any loading screens.  PS4’s using suspend will also be able to charge your Dual Shock 4 controllers or perform software updates in the background automatically.

The new feature that I’m most interested in is the ability to perform a full PS4 backup and restore to an external storage device.  Sadly, this feature was missing when I decided to shoot my How To Upgrade a PS4 Hard Drive video, and I would recommend it to any players interested in performing a Hard Drive replacement for their PS4. 

You can read all the specific details about the update here on the Playstation.Blog.

Sony says that Vita users may need to update their Vita software to take full advantage of all the new features update 2.50 is bringing to the PS4.  For example, you’ll now be able to use Remote Play games in 60 frames per second.  Currently there is no update available for the iPhone’s Playstation App, but one may be on its way.

You must perform a Software Update to log your Playstation 4 into the Playstation Network.
