Here's the summary of what's new:

  • PlayStation 4 Pro owners can stream via Twitch in 1080p at 60 frames per second.
  • The system's master and sub account systems has been overhauled. New family accounts an feature multiple adlt accounts in a single family, able to act in a parent / guardian role and set parental controls on a per-account basis, allowing each sub account different communications, content-viewing, and spending limit privelages. Requets can also be sent to adult accounts on other PlayStation 4s to join the same family.
  • Players can follow any user.
  • Notifications have been added to the Quick Menu. Uploads and downloads status can also be checked here.
  • Push notifications for events.
  • Specator comments on screen while broadcasting in virtual reality mode.
  • Broadcasts can be linked to a PlayStation Community.
  • Language support for Czech, Thai, Greek, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Romanian and Hungarian.
  • Behind-the-scenes support for bundle and compilation discs, with or without add-ons, and discs which support games and add-ons (such as a "Game of the Year Edition"), which do not require developers rework any code.

Wait this isn't out yet? I think I need more sleep since I assumed this feature went public like a year ago.

(probably doesn't help that last November feels like a few weeks ago)

No game clock/log though :(

How does Sony's update number system work? 5.0 should have big features. This should be like 4.x.x or what ever. I don't know what it's at now.
