PlayStation 4 system firmware update 2.50 could be incoming soon, and a select few may get their hands on it even sooner.
According to a leaked email from Sony, members of the PlayStation MVP program may be getting emails within days, inviting them to try out a beta of PS4 firmware version 2.50 before it’s released to the general populus.
The most important new feature shown is the highly anticipated Suspend Mode, where you can put your system into rest mode without closing other applications. Suspend Mode was originally advertised at the PlayStation 4 reveal event all the way back in February 2013.
Other notable features leaked include button remapping, an option to delete PlayStation Trophies that have a zero completion percentage, and an improved Share Play touting a 60fps frame rate.
It’s exciting to see Sony reach out to their loyal community members with this firmware beta. Following in the footsteps of Microsoft’s Preview Program, it’s a great way to test the waters with a new system software update and make the most hardcore of hardcore PlayStation fans happy at the same time.
