Great news, PlayStation owners — Sony has just announced that the highly anticipated PS4 3.50 update will release to the public tomorrow.
The update brings a slew of new features to your PlayStation 4 experience, most notable of which is Remote Play on PC/Mac. As of tomorrow, players will be able to download the remote play installer for Windows 8.1/10 and OS X 10.10/.11. You’ll be able to choose from three different resolution options (360p, 540p, and 720p) as we as two frame rates (30fps or 60fps).
According to the official PlayStation Blog, To use Remote Play on PC, players will need to use their DualShock 4 controller connected to their PC/Mac via a USB cable.
Also included in the 3.50 update is the ability to appear offline, allowing you to hop onto your PlayStation 4 without being bothered by those pesky friends of yours.
The update also adds friend online notifications, which you can setup to notify you when certain friends hop online.
User scheduled events will also be a part of the incoming update. Gamers will be able to set up online events and gameplay sessions and invite their friends or share with groups and communities. Any friend who accepts the request will be automatically added to a party when the event starts.
Of course, these are just the big features that are coming in the update, and Sony says there are other “refinements” made as well. Remote Play has definitely been our most awaited feature here at Nerd Much, as we’re currently in the middle of binge-watching Season 5 of Bob’s Burgers and wanted to play Street Fighter V while we watched. As of tomorrow, we’ll be able to!
