John Koller, Sony’s Vice President of Marketing for PlayStation, took to the PlayStation blog this morning to announce the PlayStation 4’s 3.50 update will be rolling out tomorrow. Koller also wrote details of the new features that the update will include, most notably the ability to remote play your PlayStation 4 from a PC or Mac using their new remote play app.
- Players will now be able to appear offline, so you won’t have to worry about your checking your PSN to see if you really were sick the same day Uncharted 4 came out.
- Notifications will be able to alert you when friends come online. The alerts can be set individually, in case you care about some people more than others
- PlayStation 4 users will be able to create their own gaming events. Players can now add specific dates and times for their Destiny raids and invite their fireteam well in advance.
- Users will be able to see what games their friends in a party are playing, making it easy to jump in and play together.
- Remote play for the PlayStation 4 will now work with computers running Windows 8.1, Windows 10 or later, OS X 10.10 and OS X 10.11. Standard remote play runs at 30fps and 540p resolution, but can be increased up to 60fps and 720p resolution. A dualshock 4 controller must be connected to the computer via usb cable. The remote play app will be available here tomorrow once the update is live.
