While developing the PlayStation 4 system, our hardware and software teams relied on feedback from our community of developers. The result is the most innovative and forward-thinking gaming console in the market today. Since launch, PlayStation has continued that trend of listening to feedback by bringing some of the most highly requested features from the PlayStation Nation to PS4 with each of our system software updates. When we unveiled PS4 two years ago, we announced Suspend/Resume, a feature that would enable PS4 users to jump in and out of their games faster than ever. This has been a feature gamers have been excited about since then, and today I am honored to officially confirm that system software update 2.50, “Yukimura,” will soon deliver Suspend/Resume, as well as a number of other requested features to PS4.

Suspend/Resume, which will be supported by nearly all PS4 titles, will create an atmosphere where your games are immediately available at any time — just pick up your DualShock 4 wireless controller, hit the PS button and get right back into the action of your games. When it’s time to log off, simply put your PS4 in Rest Mode and when you power up the next time, you’ll start your game where you left off. Spend less time getting into your games and more time playing them.

Here are some of the other highly requested new features and changes coming soon in “Yukimura:”

Sub-account to Master account Upgrade: Users with a sub-account will now be able to upgrade to a master account directly from their PS4 when they turn 18, removing restrictions for chat, enabling users to fund their own wallet, make purchases and more. Currently, users can upgrade their sub-accounts online at https://account.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/.

Facebook Friend Search: Gamers globally have jumped into PS4 as a redefined social gaming experience and connecting with friends over the network is a huge part of what makes the PS4 community so special. PlayStation now lets you go even bigger by connecting with your Facebook friends on PS4 using your linked account. Search for Facebook friends who are PlayStation Network members and build on the foundation of Friends you already have in your list.

Remote Play & Share Play at 60 fps: For games that support 60 fps, the ability to customize the frame rate of Remote Play and Share Play will be added with “Yukimura.” Play to your bandwidth strengths and use this option to stream gameplay at 60 or 30 fps when using Remote Play or Share Play on supported devices.

Accessibility Options: “Yukimura” introduces a wide variety of options to make their PS4 entertainment experience even more accessible. Options include text to speech, enlarged text, bolder fonts, higher contrast UI, zoom for displayed pictures, invert colors on screen and more. Users will also be able to reassign buttons for DualShock 4, making it easier for users with limited manual dexterity or limited reach and strength to play.

Trophy Improvements: We have received a ton of feedback to improve Trophies. In “Yukimura,” a screenshot will automatically be captured at the moment a Trophy is earned, making it easier than ever for you to share your greatest gaming moments with your friends. We’re also adding more sorting options along with the new ability to remove games from the Trophy list that have 0% completion.

Share Video Clips to Dailymotion: When sharing standout PS4 moments via the Share button on DualShock 4, “Yukimura” will allow players to upload directly to Dailymotion.

Stay tuned for more information on “Yukimura” and, as always, let us know in the comments how we can continue to improve PS4 to make it the best place to play.

In addition to the Suspend/Resume function, I think the ability to reassign the buttons on the DS4 is a pretty big one. Haven't you ever wished you could customize the controller configuration? However, it looks like this is going to be a system-wide setting. I wouldn't necessarily want to change the button mapping for everything, but rather just for a specific game. It would be nice if you could create a custom configuration and then enable it only for a specific app/game. I guess we'll see how it works when the update lands.

Right now, however, my most wanted feature, as already mentioned here, is support for Harmony remotes. I just got my PS4 yesterday. I'll be keeping PS3 around, for a while anyway, as I still play Arkham City (combat challenge maps) on a near-daily basis (my all-time favourite game!). However, if Arkham Knight can fill this role for me, then I foresee my PS3 being retired shortly after its release. If the PS4 had support for Harmony remotes, then I would also ditch my standalone Blu-ray player. Kinda sad that I've got 3 machines in my system that play blu-rays, but not one of them does everything I want (at least not well).

Yeah, the PS3 has a decent disc (DVD/BR) remote itself; it would be nice if I could use that on the PS4. But even the DS controller actions for movies seem better on the PS3.

The suspend feature is nice; I can see where this will be appreciated. The rest doesn't seem to exciting.

I think the button remapping is more of an accessibility feature than taking the place of moving stuff around out of personal preference.

Seems like a solid update, hope we don't have to wait this long for the next feature update.

Has anyone gotten share play to work? I have not been able to. I am on wifi, which is probably the issue, but my ps4 says its still getting 16mb down and 9mb up. I'm wondering how strong a connection you have to have.

Worked (sorta) using LAN. Think your gonna need/want 30mb down, best up you can get. It works if both connections are strong. I shared with bigbrad and it didnt display in HD he stated and eventually just timed out. Havent tried since though...

Tired of waiting for the firmware so I went ahead and installed a 2TB drive into the PS4. I'll have to redownload my games.
So much for the game backup option. Now the firmware is truly pointless for me.
I was close to installing the new drive into my PC. I don't want to abandon the PS4 yet but come on Sony. You need to step up your hardware game as you don't have any game games this year.

I hope this new update fixes the 24p lipsync issues that many have posted on the PS4 blu-ray sub forum...As I just noticed this as well on my PS4 playing through my 3000es receiver.
