Sony has announced today over on the PlayStation Blog that the PS4 update 3.50 will be leaving beta tomorrow. Yes, the update will be made readily available for all, and with it comes a bunch of new features, one of the more notable features being remote play on PC and Mac. However, there are a few limitations with remote play on PC, as noted in the quick list below:
Remote Play on Mac / PC is compatible with the following system software:
- Windows 8.1
- Windows 10 or later
- OS X 10.10
- OS X 10.11
You’ll be able to select from the following resolution and frame rate options, depending on your Internet bandwidth.
- Resolution options: 360p, 540p, 720p
- Default resolution – 540p
- Frame rate : Standard (30fps), High (60fps)
- Default frame rate – Standard (30fps)
It’s a shame we still can’t remote play at full 1080p but it’s nice enough to have the option anyway. The rest of the update is more about connecting players with one another, whether it be via live-streaming on Daily Motion, YouTube or Twitch, seeing when friends come online as they come online, or setting up events with chosen friends for specific games. There’s video down below that Sony has put together that explains what’s coming in the update and we recommend giving it a watch as it’s only a couple of minutes long.
