Have you been dying to stream at 1080p at 60FPS on your PlayStation 4 Pro? Well, the wait is over, as the latest PlayStation 4 firmware update, 5.0, is heading our way. Not only will the upcoming firmware update 5.0 allow PlayStation Pro owners to stream via Twitch at 1080p 60FPS, but there will also be an overhaul of the console's master/sub account system. Furthermore, you'll be able to follow any user and be able to view notifications in the PlayStation 4's quick menu.

A side note about the new following system: you won't need to friend request people you want to follow and you won't use up your friend's list. Furthermore, you can block users and choose whether or not you would like to have existing friends or anybody to follow you.

As for the master/sub account changes? You'll be able to take set up multiple adult accounts in a family and set parental controls on a per-account basis, meaning that each child has their own sets of limitations.

As the cherry on top, you'll be able to take advantage of a new web app to manage family accounts and access parental controls. The web app is, in fact, accessible from your PC and smartphone.

Of course, there is much more coming to this firmware update, but what you're mostly curious about is when this update will launch. Well, it will be in the near future, that's all I can say.

The reason for this is to, "encourage more sharing of content and more interations," according to Sony.
