PS4 Software Update 5.0 To Allow PSN ID Changes, Play PS1 Games

Story from: Digital Street

The PS4 system software update v5.0 is set to introduce a host of new features to Sony’s popular gaming platform. These features include access to PSOne Classics, the ability to hide or completely remove items from library, the introduction of a store wishlist, an increase in the maximum number of people allowed in a party, and, the ability to change your PSN ID.

So what exactly are PSOne Classics?

In simple terms, it just means you could play old titles from Sony’s debut console on the PS4. The way that this is actually still implemented remains to be seen.

So a bit about the past, PSOne titles like Final Fantasy VII were made available for the PS4 with some modern upgrades like removing all random encounters and the ability to speed up the game. A year after that, Sony revealed that select PS2 games like Grand Theft Auto: Vice City could be played on the PS4 with trophy support and modern graphical touches. Previously a patent was spotted that allows Sony to add trophy support to PS1 and PS2 games.

Minor additions such as adding a store wish list and changing your PSN ID have been some of the most requested features, however, this goes to show how far behind PSN is compared to Xbox Live and Steam.

What proves that the above functionality and features could happen in 5.0?

It’s actually from a survey that Sony conducted back in 2015 with nearly half of the requested features that users requested for (such as notifications and appearing offline) are already available for the console with the recent updates, with focus now being shifted to the above functions which are pending. Apart from that, PS4 update 5.0 will be in beta at the end of this month and should arrive to all owners by mid-August.
