Sony has announced on the PlayStation Blog the upcoming PS4 firmware update 2.50 code named: “Yukimura” is confirmed to bring Suspend/Resume feature for the PS4.

PS4 Firmware 2.50 codenamed: “Yukimura” confirmed to bring Suspend/Resume and other

The Suspend/Resume feature has been announced ever since the PS4 was revealed back in 2013, it would enable players to jump in and out of their PS4 games faster. It would allow players to simply log-off their PS4, put the console in rest mode and be able to start the game again quickly from where you exactly left off. Just pick up you PS4 controller, press the PS button and be back to your game in no time, no need to load the game from scratch so you can seamlessly continue playing your game. And the Suspend/Resume feature will be supported by nearly all PS4 games available right now. This is something PS4 users have been excited about ever since launch only to be disappointed when it was not included during said launch, but better late than never right?

The upcoming firmware 2.50 is packed with other new features as well, some of the highly requested features have been included in the “Yukimura” update:

The ability to remove Trophies that are at 0% completion can be removed from your trophy list will be included, along with an automatic screenshot whenever you earn a new trophy, which will be good for bragging rights. SharePlay will also be improved to support 60FPS, but we think it will still depend on the speed of your net connection, not to mention that stability of PSN. So we’ll have to see how that plays out once its released.

The 2.50 update will also let you upgrade your sub accounts to Master accounts once the owner of the sub account turns 18 years old. Upgrading a Sub-account to a Master account has already been enabled earlier by Sony, but you were only able to upgrade you account via the Sony website and not via your PS4 console, so this is a good update.

Here are some of the new improvements included in the PS4 firmware 2.50 update from the PlayStation blog post:

  • Sub-account to Master account Upgrade: Users with a sub-account will now be able to upgrade to a master account directly from their PS4 when they turn 18, removing restrictions for chat, enabling users to fund their own wallet, make purchases and more. Currently, users can upgrade their sub-accounts online at
  • Facebook Friend Search: Gamers globally have jumped into PS4 as a redefined social gaming experience and connecting with friends over the network is a huge part of what makes the PS4 community so special. PlayStation now lets you go even bigger by connecting with your Facebook friends on PS4 using your linked account. Search for Facebook friends who are PlayStation Network members and build on the foundation of Friends you already have in your list.
  • Remote Play & Share Play at 60 fps: For games that support 60 fps, the ability to customize the frame rate of Remote Play and Share Play will be added with “Yukimura.” Play to your bandwidth strengths and use this option to stream gameplay at 60 or 30 fps when using Remote Play or Share Play on supported devices.
  • Accessibility Options: “Yukimura” introduces a wide variety of options to make their PS4 entertainment experience even more accessible. Options include text to speech, enlarged text, bolder fonts, higher contrast UI, zoom for displayed pictures, invert colors on screen and more. Users will also be able to reassign buttons for DualShock 4, making it easier for users with limited manual dexterity or limited reach and strength to play.
  • Trophy Improvements: We have received a ton of feedback to improve Trophies. In “Yukimura,” a screenshot will automatically be captured at the moment a Trophy is earned, making it easier than ever for you to share your greatest gaming moments with your friends. We’re also adding more sorting options along with the new ability to remove games from the Trophy list that have 0% completion.
  • Share Video Clips to Dailymotion: When sharing standout PS4 moments via the Share button on DualShock 4, “Yukimura” will allow players to upload directly to Dailymotion.

This news confirms some of the leaked information regarding the PS4 Firmware 2.50 update that it would bring the Suspend/Resume feature, SharePlay at 60FPS, but no mention of the DualShock 4 butting configuration options.

PS4 firmware 3.50 “Yukimura” is still in beta phase so there’s still the possibility of other features to be added or removed once launched, so stay tuned.
