PS4 Update 4.74 Improves System Performance Is Available To Download Now

PS4 Update 5.01


Sony has come out with a new system update. The PS4 Update 4.74 is around 324 MB and should be available in most regions. So if you have not got it yet , it may only be a matter of a few minutes before you get your hands on the update.

The only notable thing that the PS4 update 4.74 does is improve system performance. Interestingly enough if you are testing PS4 update 5.00 Beta’s this update will forcibly kick you out of it , and you will have to download it yet again if you want to be able to use it .

It means that there is still some time before PS4 update 5.00 is released for the general public. The future update will make improvements to the friend management , broadcast features, and quick menu updates. It will also introduce the Family on PlayStation feature. Here’s what it will entail.

We’re overhauling the current master/sub-account system, and introducing the new “Family on PlayStation Network.” This new system will offer a more flexible experience for families on PS4 by making it easier to setup PSN accounts for children and customize parental control settings. Below are the new features that will be introduced with family on PSN:

Family Manager, Parent/Guardian

Family on PSN will allow multiple adults to be part of a single family. The Family Manager can promote another adult inside the family to a Parent/Guardian, who can then customize parental control levels of children’s accounts.

Individualized Parental Controls

Before this update, the same parental controls were applied to all users on the same console, including adults. But with 5.00, all controls (including game age ratings) can be individually attuned for each child.
