PlayStation 4 Firmware Update 2.50 Deployed

System software update v2.50 enables Suspend/Resume, Facebook friend search, Remote Play and Share Play enhancements and much more
Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) sent over a press release announcing that Yukimura, the latest system software update for PS4, is now live, bringing requested features such as the Suspend/Resume feature, which enables gamers to jump in and out of their games quickly and pick up where they left off. Gamers will be able to suspend their game by putting their PS4 system into Rest Mode, and then quickly resume the game where they left off by pressing the PlayStation button on the DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller, which wakes their system.
In addition, Yukimura allows PS4 owners to back-up and restore the hard disc to and from an external USB drive. Hard disc drive data includes settings, saved data, screenshots and video clips as well as games, patches and download data.
PS4 owners will now be able to search for Facebook friends with their linked account. Friend requests and Real Name requests can be sent together in one step when adding a friend on the PS4 system. The update allows users to easily view what their friends are playing by adding a "Friends Who Play This" section on each game detail page, while also highlighting which friends are currently online and playing it. The process to create a Party has also been streamlined with a reduction in the number of steps required. Additionally, the What's New section will now feature a section where users can see what their friends are currently playing enabling them to join in the game if they own it or find out more on PlayStation Store.
