Sony To Add 1080p 60FPS Twitch Streaming Support To Firmware Update 5.0

Latest updates suggest that PS4 Pro users will get 1080p 60FPS Twitch streaming in next firmware update. According to reports, Sony plans to add 1080p 60fps Twitch streaming support for the upcoming PS4 Firmware Update 5.0. There have been lots of rumors with regards to the new PlayStation 4 firmware update 5.0 and users are eager to know what the upcoming update has in store for them.

New details have now surfaced online suggesting that the firmware update 5.0 will likely include 1080p 60fps Twitch streaming support feature. This is an amazing news for PS4 Pro users. It is reported by Engadget that even though the developer has previously hint users that the 5.0 firmware update for its PS4 Pro will include the 1080p 60fps Twitch streaming support, many tech enthusiasts are not clear as to what it really entails.

However, the report stated that the 1080p 60fps Twitch streaming support will give PS4 Pro users the option to broadcast their gaming on Twitch at a rate of 60 frames per second. It is believed that this is an important feature for users who intend to broadcast a fighting or shooter game at the same frame rate as that on television. Meanwhile, the addition of 1080p 60fps Twitch streaming support feature to the 5.0 firmware update will now give users the option to create multiple adult accounts, according to IGN.

Furthermore, the upcoming update will allow users to set parental controls on a per-account basis and also the ability to follow anyone’s account without the need for a friendship request. This is regardless of whether it is a popular developer or a gaming figure. Details about the upcoming update were acquired from Eurogamer. The publication stated that it recently obtained a copy of the update’s release notes.

The publication noted that the developer is doing this to encourage more sharing of content and more interactions among players and boost the viral potential of UGC for game developers. Users’ notification will reportedly be available on the Quick Menu to minimize the stress associated with continuously going back to the home screen. Users will also have the option to block users, and choose whether they want to give everyone or just friends the ability to follow their account.

Additionally, reports have it that the developer intends to launch the 5.0 firmware update along with a revamped PlayStation App. Sony took sign-ups for beta testing back in July but it is still not clear when the 5.0 firmware update will be available.
