PS4 Software Update 5.00 Now Available for Download, Brings Improvements to Tournaments, Broadcasting, and More

Sony has announced that PS4 software update 5.00 (codename: Nobunaga) is available for download right now. And no, unlike previous reports suggested, you won’t be able to change your PSN ID or let you play PS1 games.
Rather, the update adds other new features that haven’t been as hotly requested. These include the ability to stream at 1080p 60fps on Twitch, team tournaments, and improved messaging.
While the first one is rather obvious, team tournaments lets you recruit your friends to compete against other teams. It will debut on October 5 supporting Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, World of Tanks, and Mantis Burn Racing with "more on the way” according to Sony.
In addition to this, if you’re sending a message on PSN that includes a link, it will be displayed as a preview within the message itself complete with its headline and thumbnails.
While these are just some of the major features incorporated into PS4 firmware 5.00, other minor functions include the ability to follow anyone on PSN. This was previously restricted to Verified Accounts such as Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida.
"This allows you to follow content creators, game broadcasters, and other gamers in a community without having to dip into your friends list. And at the same time, this will allow these users to expand their reach and build more interest in what they’re doing. Your What’s New feed will be updated with the activities of the users you’re following, so you can easily keep up on what they’re up to,” Sony said in a post.
