4 THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT YOUR PS4

HWM (Singapore) - - Front Page - by Sale­hud­dinHusin

There was a time when it was un­heard of for a con­sole to get new fea­tures as time passed. And up­dates usu­ally only came in the form of sys­tem fixes that rode on the discs of newer games.

To­day, over-the-air firmware up­dates are com­mon and hap­pen more fre­quently. And from time to time, you get a big swanky up­date that sub­stan­tially adds to what the con­sole of­fers. The Playsta­tion 4’s lat­est 2.50 firmware, co­de­named “Yukimura” is one such up­date. Here are a few things you might want to try out af­ter updating your PS4.

SCREEN­SHOTS FOR TRO­PHIES

Ev­ery­one likes tro­phies. They are the re­flec­tion of your dig­i­tal prow­ess and envy of all your gam­ing friends. But, know­ing you have said tro­phies and ac­tu­ally shar­ing them for the world to see wasn’t so easy be­fore. With Yukimura, when ac­cess­ing the Tro­phies sec­tion, you’ll now find that each achieve­ment you earned as a pic­ture at­tached to it, which al­lows you to ex­pand your brag­ging rights and share di­rectly on so­cial me­dia. Noth­ing ma­jor but a neat touch nonethe­less.

RE­GIONAL AC­CESS

The Playsta­tion Net­work is di­vided into dif­fer­ent world­wide re­gions. For ex­am­ple, U.S., Europe, Ja­pan, Hong Kong and Sin­ga­pore all have dif­fer­ent PSN Stores, with vary­ing con­tent. Sony doesn’t ac­tu­ally limit ac­count cre­ation, so it’s to your ben­e­fit to have an ac­count that cov­ers the ma­jor stores to gain ac­cess to ev­ery­thing. Ac­count cre­ation is sim­ple, you’ll have to reg­is­ter four sep­a­rate emails and street ad­dresses (Google is your friend here). Just cre­ate an ac­count as usual, but when asked to choose a coun­try, se­lect the coun­try that cor­re­sponds to the re­gion you want.
