PlayStation 4 owners are getting an oft-requested feature in the next system update to the console. Sony announced the details Monday of the 4.0 “Shingen” update that will be coming to beta participants very soon.
The ability to place PS4 games and apps in folders along with better library management has been at the top of the list for owners of the console for some time. Viewing games and apps turned into an exercise of frustration as their number increased and no way of organizing them.
The overall user interface for the PlayStation 4 will also receive some tweaking, but not an overhaul.
“We’ve made a lot of adjustments and improvements to PS4’s main user interface. That includes some changes you may notice right away, like new system backgrounds and a revised What’s New tab, to smaller changes like updated popup notifications and redesigned system icons,” Koller wrote. “As a whole, it all adds up to a more refined and easy to use UI. The overall look and feel of the UI remains the same — it just has a fresh coat of paint.”
