Firmware update 2.5 features announced
« on: March 15, 2015, 01:26:28 PM »
It was leaked about a week or so ago....thought I posted it here, guess not, lol. But Sony a couple days ago made the official announcement of the features of Firmware update 2.5. The other features are kind of a yawn for me, but the Suspend/Resume will be quite a nifty feature for a game console. What you can do now, when you need to leave a game to take a shit or do something because your woman is nagging you, you can Suspend the game, shut off the console and pick up right where you left off with the Resume feature, you power up the console and pick up right where you left off.

Accessibility Options

This may not sound very exciting on the surface, but this will be a game changer for some. The new accessibility options will allow you to remap the DualShock 4 controller, while also including tons of small improvements, such as text enlarging, colour inversion, zoom, and much more. This will hopefully enable a few more people to enjoy the PS4, which is fantastic.
Dailymotion Video Upload

For all three people who use Dailymotion, you'll now be able to upload your gameplay clips directly to the video hosting service via the Share button. We're not entirely sure who this will appeal to, but hey, more options is always good, right?
Facebook Friends Search

This is nifty: you'll now be able to find your buddies more easily on the PS4 by linking your Facebook account to the console. It'll then search your Facebook friends for associated PlayStation Network profiles, and recommend that you add anyone that you haven't already to your list of gaming contacts.
Remote Play at 60 Frames-Per-Second

Remote Play is amazing, but previously, it was limited to 30 frames-per-second. This will change with firmware update v2.50, as if you've got a fast enough connection, you'll be able to stream 60 frames-per-second footage to your PlayStation Vita or PS Vita TV. Share Play will also support this option, allowing you to pass the controller to your pals, without compromising the experience.
Sub-Account Upgrade

It's already possible to upgrade your sub-account to a master account online, but PS4 firmware update v2.50 will add the feature to the console. You'll need to be 18 to use the option, but this will ultimately enable you to access all of the functionality of the PlayStation Network, without any restrictions.
Suspend/Resume

The biggie for this update, Suspend/Resume will allow you to put your PS4 into Rest Mode – without quitting your game. This means that you won't have to wait for the title to boot when you power your console back up – heck, you won't even necessarily need to save. Sony promised this feature at the next-gen system's reveal event over two years ago, so it's perhaps long overdue.
Trophy Tweaks

They may be one of the most important parts of the PlayStation experience, but Trophies often tend to get overlooked in these updates. Fortunately, the achievements system will get some much needed attention in firmware update v2.50. For starters, you'll be able to delete game profiles where you've earned 0% of the trinkets, but there'll also be a new automated feature that will take a screenshot when you unlock a gong. Extra sorting options will also be added, too.

Firmware update 2.5 was released today. A couple other new features that I didn't know about, you can delete 0% trophies from your profile. So if you installed a game and never a) played it or b) sucked so bad you didn't get any trophies, you can take that off your profile so it isn't cluttered. You can also share your trophy achievements on Facebook and Twitter. So now you have a new thing on your Facebook wall to not give a shit about :D

Well... there is no way for my PS4 to make the Suspend function working. I tried it with Assassin's Creed, with Dragon Age and with GTA. When I wake my consolle up, I see only a frozen screen, stuck, with no possibility to change anything. If I wanna keep on playing, I must restart the PS4 manually...  :(

Yeesh. That sucks. Thanks for the heads up. I haven't turned on my PS4 since the update so I haven't tested it yet.

No problem Titan  :)
If you make a google search for "ps4 suspend function doesn't work" you will find a ton of news about it. It looks like that such a new function will not work with many games, because they don't support it. Nice, eh?

I read too that the suspend feature won't work on a game that requires you to be connected to the network. I'll have to google it when I get home :)
