Sony announced today that they're coming out with a new update for the PS4's software. Software update 3.50, codenamed Musashi, will be bringing PS4 remote play to your PC or MAC. There's no release date for the update out as of yet, but for those who are selected, beta is going live tomorrow. On their blog, Sony listed off the features you can tinker with in the software beta.

  • Friend Online Notification – Want to know the moment your friends come online? With this update, you can, as we’ve added an option to be notified when members of your friends list sign on the network.
  • Appear Offline – Sometimes you want to play a game or watch a movie without being bothered by friends. Now it’s easier to go incognito as we’ve added the option to appear offline. You can designate if you would like to appear offline when you log-in or at any time from your Profile or the Quick Menu.
  • User Scheduled Event – Time for a play date! We’ve added the ability to schedule a future gameplay session with your friends on the system. When your event starts, users who registered for the event will automatically be added to a party so you can start playing right away.
  • Play Together – This features allows all members of a Party to see what each person is playing so that you can easily join a friend’s game, or start a new game together.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to test out Remote Play through the beta, but Sony says we can look forward to the feature soon. Update 3.50 will also allow you to livestream to Dailymotion on your PS4 and they'll be providing live stream archiving support as well so that's pretty cool.

During beta testing, new key features will be announced as well as the final release date for the update.
