But today, a new upgrade for the console has been published, v6.50, a PS4 Update that’s Sony quite lately sent out beta invites for to examine new features.

In the time it did not look like it had been for anything that important, but the update has been published this morning with a few surprising new additions.

If there are any additional secret adjustments to the console, we envision we’ll learn soon enough as players download the upgrade and start rooting around to find out what is changed.

As always, PlayStation advises players to”always update your PS4 platform to the most recent version of the program software,” which they explain will allow you to”enjoy additional features, improved usability and improved security.”

For people who don’t remember, the last big update to the console was the 6.0 upgrade and whilst it uncharacteristically did not include any sweeping changes or new features, we suspect it might have been laying lots of the groundwork for its consoles PSN Name Change feature.

“This attribute works with PS4 games initially published after April 1, 2018, and also a large majority of the most-played PS4 games which were released before this season,” writes Sony in the PSBlog.

“However, please note not all applications and games for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita systems are sure to support the online ID shift, and users may sometimes encounter issues or errors in certain games.

“If for any reason you experience issues after changing your ID, it is possible to revert back to your initial ID for free anytime (you will only have the ability to revert once through the preview program). Reverting back to an old ID will resolve most problems caused by the ID change.”
