Hefty PS4 firmware update allows 1080p60 streaming

And a few other features

Sony just pushed out their newest version of PS4 firmware, update 5.00.

Along with it comes the long awaited feature for 1080p60 streaming through Twitch, so long as you have a Pro. But there’s also a few other minor changes, like an expanded parent account display that now more easily shows off family members, and custom friend list groups (I’m going to use this right now for Destiny 2 raid groups. The PSVR, if you’re still using it, now supports 7.1 surround sound while watching movies.

Oh, and another useful change — you can limit or turn off notification spam during certain activities.
