Sony's PlayStation 4 3.50 software beta is almost here
Sony has confirmed their PlayStation 4's next big system software update, version 3.50, is almost here.

The beta will be available tomorrow if you were selected, and Sony is sending out emails with instructions on how to download.

Here's a quick list of the new features, via Sony:

New Social Features
Friend Online Notification Want to know the moment your friends come online? With this update, you can, as we've added an option to be notified when members of your friends list sign on the network.

Appear Offline Sometimes you want to play a game or watch a movie without being bothered by friends. Now it's easier to go incognito as we've added the option to appear offline. You can designate if you would like to appear offline when you log-in or at any time from your Profile or the Quick Menu.

User Scheduled Event Time for a play date! We've added the ability to schedule a future gameplay session with your friends on the system. When your event starts, users who registered for the event will automatically be added to a party so you can start playing right away.

Play Together This features allows all members of a Party to see what each person is playing so that you can easily join a friend's game, or start a new game together.

Other New System Features

Remote Play (PC/Mac) We're bringing PS4 Remote Play to Windows PC and Mac. This feature won't be available to test in the beta, but you can look forward to it soon.

Dailymotion With this update, you'll be able to live stream directly to Dailymotion on PS4. We'll also support archiving live broadcasts, like we do for other streaming services.

    Remote play caught my eye, but it doesn't sound like it's coming anytime soon.

    Agree with DK.

    This is considered a "big system software update"?

    Every single feature here is weak and virtually useless and would definitely go unmissed.

    Consoles are inferior to the PC. Time to switch up people!

    There is nothing here that will improve anything really.
    I just hope its not several hundred megs that will take ages to download and install.
