Have you been aching to change that username you picked when you were twelve? Been dying to play Castlevania: Symphony of the Night on your PS4? These features and more may or may not be coming with the PS4 5.0 Beta.
As a major update, 5.0 promises to bring big changes to the PlayStation world. But which features will be introduced, and how many, still has yet to be seen. Here’s what we do know:
- Registration for the 5.0 Beta is open now. If you want to be the first in line to try out the new features and give feedback, this is your chance.
- Once the beta opens in early August, registration will be closed. This means that if you haven’t registered for the beta and the feature you have been waiting for comes out, you will have to wait until mid to late August to experience it.
The Beta launches in early August. You can sign up now via playstation.com.
There has been much speculation as to what it’s going to include, from allowing you to change your PSN ID to playing PS1 classics. Sadly, nothing has been confirmed just yet, so here are a few features we’d love to see added.
- We’d LOVE to see a wishlist and game gifting added to the system. It’s such a basic feature, and would allow friends and family to buy games for their loved ones super easily. It’s a surprise it’s not been added yet.
- Full theme customization. Sony recently added the option to add a custom picture to your theme, and while that’s a good first step. It’s nothing like we saw last generation. We’d love to see the feature come back in full force. Let peoples creativity out!
- Backwards Compatibility. It’s something that everyone wants, just make it happen. This is far fetched though.
- The ability to delete Demos and Betas from the library, and while we’re at it, give us filtering options too!
- And probably the least likely to happen, but digital game sharing. How awesome would it be to allow your friends to “borrow” a game for a couple days? Just make the owner unable to play it while it’s rented out. I’d be willing to be more people would buy digital that way.
Which features do you hope to see? Let us know in the comments below.
