Sony is remaining quiet about the PlayStation 4 firmware update 5.0, but in an era of constant leaks and speculation, there's bound to be some tidbits here and there. Eurogamer has posted some of the early details it has obtained about the update so far.

The other updates through the year are generally smaller firmware updates with bug and stability fixes (although in recent years, Sony has also taken to releasing an x.50 update every March or April, which also adds major new features). This is great both for those who frequently broadcast their gaming PS4 gaming sessions on Twitch and audiences who will see them.

Twitcher streaming is just the latest addition to 1080p sharing on the Pro.

One of the more interesting features is that PS4 Pro owners can now stream 1080p at 60fps using Twitch.

The release notes hint at other changes.

This includes moving system notifications to your Quick Menu so you no longer have to keep heading back to the home screen, as well as the ability to check on the status of your uploads/downloads too. Right now, the only accounts you can follow are verified accounts, which are mostly made up by official game accounts, developers, and popular Youtubers. So yes, gone are the friend limits and verification requirements just to follow anyone.

That said, it's also noted that there will be privacy options to block users and make it so only certain people can follow you. Blocking users will also become a possibility.

There will be a new web application to manage family accounts, and access parental controls/family membership options from your PC and smartphone.

A public release date for the 5.0 firmware has yet to be announced, but it'll likely arrive in the near future along with a refreshed PlayStation app that will see improved designs and performance. This means you don't have to fill up your friends list in order to get updates.
