SingStar Celebration is the new addition to our PlayLink family and as part of the range, you’ll be able to turn your compatible smartphone into a personal, pocket-sized microphone! The SingStar Mic is a free app for Android and iOS which will be available to download the same day the game releases.

The community is already alive and well as you can check out the thousands of fans singing their favorite tracks in the community here. Also you can get a sneak peak of the track listing here and add it to you Spotify playlist below:

Editors Opinion: Games like SingStar are great for parties, Although I haven’t taken part in any Karaoke events in a while. The Sing star series is great for kids and adults alike and if you’re familiar with the activeness from the PS3 community as it’s grown into the PS4 community the Sing Star Brand is one of PlayStation’s Hidden gems. Even at events like PSX (which we’ll have footage and articles of) You’ll come find that it’s one of PlayStation’s beloved franchised all while being in a niche gaming space. And with Android and iOS supported devices this has the possibility to expand into the next generation of PlayStation Gamer. Because who remembers having to pay for SingStar Mics right?

Arc System Works Reveal more Characters for Blaze Blaze Cross Tag Battle!

 

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

If you haven’t seen this weekend was quite the reveal and we’re not talking about football. We’re talking BlazeBlue: Cross Tag Battle. As we draw near the official release in 2018 Arc System Works has been privy with releasing details for this up and coming fighter. Well we’ve luckily been given the opportunity of another character reveal. And this time was it wasn’t just one character or game play. This go round it has revealed that Weiss Schnee is on the way to the BBCTB scene. As you can see below via the trailer that she’s not the only one that’s on the way. Check out the trailer below to see what we mean.

If you’re a fan in particular of the RWBY series you can see that Weiss is one of the fan favorites alongside others from the late great Monty Oum (Creator of the RWBY series). Moving forward, The trailer reveals not only Weiss but others such as Hazama from the blazeblue series.

Hazama-blazblue

As well as Rachel Alucard from the series.

Rachel_Alucard_(Chronophantasma,_Character_Select_Artwork)

As of now there is no set release date for the up and coming fighter only a release window of 2018. Although one would suspect that it will possibly release shortly after Dragon Ball FighterZ to avoid a conflict of interest and as well to let the Fighter game community (FGC) adjust and embrace the Dragon Ball FighterZ title first.

Editors Opinion: I am looking forward to this title as it has a great mixture of music from the Blazblue, UNIEL, RWBY and Persona 4 Arena Series. Although I particularly hope that they also include some characters from Persona 5. I am very much looking forward to playing this title. 3 Particular characters I am looking forward to and hoping to see on the roster are “Tager, V-13 (BlazeBlue Series) and Yang (RWBY Series). One can only hope, but overall this title is looking fantastic. I’m not too familiarized with the UNIEL characters outside of Mika, However I am looking forward to see what the lesser known titles are offering as well. 

But what do you think? What characters would you like to see. How do you think the game play looks. Are you interested in this fighter at all? Comment below and let us know. For news like this and more make sure to check back with us here at What’s Up PlayStation.

PS4 Firmware Update 5.00 Nobunaga Now Available for PS4 and PS Apps

What’s up PlayStation Nation,

As you know we’ve previously given details for the 5.00 beta for standard PS4 and PS4 Pro. To where these features were speculated but today we have official confirmation as Sony has announced via the PS Blog the available features in this 5.00 firmware update. Here are the details as followed:

Family on PSN

We’re overhauling the current master/sub-account system, and introducing the new “Family on PlayStation Network.” This new system will offer a more flexible experience for families on PS4 by making it easier to setup PSN accounts for children and customize parental control settings. Below are the new features that will be introduced with family on PSN:

Family Manager, Parent/Guardian

Family on PSN will allow multiple adults to be part of a single family. The Family Manager can promote another adult inside the family to a Parent/Guardian, who can then customize parental control levels of children’s accounts.

PS4 System Software Update 5.00

Individualized Parental Controls

Before this update, the same parental controls were applied to all users on the same console, including adults. But with 5.00, all controls (including game age ratings) can be individually attuned for each child.

Friend List Management

In place of the current ‘Favorite Groups’ tab, we’re adding a new ‘Custom Lists’ tab within Friends, which allows you to create and edit custom lists of your friends. This makes it easier for you to manage your friends and access specific groups. For example, you can create a custom list of your Destiny teammates and easily send them raid invites.

PS4 System Software Update 5.00

Broadcast feature updates

Communities

If you own a community, you can now bind your community to your broadcast. When a broadcast is linked to a community, the community button appears on the Live from PlayStation spectator screen. Once a spectator clicks on the community button, they’ll be able to jump directly to your community page to check out the details.

PlayStation VR

We’ve added a new setting in PlayStation VR: Display Message to Spectators and Spectators’ Comments. Once this is enabled, spectator comments sent during a broadcast is displayed not only in cinematic mode, but also in VR mode. This makes it much easier for VR broadcasters to keep up on comments and communicate with their viewers.

PlayStation 4 Pro

Good news Twitch users: with this update, PS4 Pro will support 1080p 60fps streaming on Twitch.

Messages Improvements

You’ve already been able to share your favorite music to Twitter and Facebook via PlayStation Music, but now you’ll also be able to share via messages using your PS4. If your friends are on PS4, they can listen to the track right inside the message by booting up Quick Menu, and if they’re on their mobile device, they can jump directly to the Spotify app from the PS Messages app to check out the song.

In addition, if you’re part of multiple message groups, you can now easily leave several groups at once. Just open up Options in the message list, select Leave, and choose the message groups you want to leave.

PS4 System Software Update 5.00

Notifications Updates

We’ve added a new setting that allows you to disable pop-up notifications while you’re watching a movie or TV show on your PS4. This setting is off by default, so go to Settings > Notifications to disable notifications and go uninterrupted during your videos.

PS4 System Software Update 5.00

Furthermore, you now have the option to turn off message previews on your pop-up notifications. If you turn this setting off, the pop-up notification will hide the message senders’ online ID and will display a generic user icon and message instead.

PS4 System Software Update 5.00

Lastly, you’ll have the option to change the color of your pop-up notifications to either white (default) or black.

PS4 System Software Update 5.00

Quick Menu Updates

If you want to keep an eye out on what’s happening under Notifications, like the progress of your game downloads/installations or new party invites, you can now access this directly from the Quick Menu so you don’t have to step away from your game every time you want to check your notifications.

PS4 System Software Update 5.00

Also, we’ve added a ‘Leave Party’ option in the Quick Menu, so you can easily exit a party and go right back to playing your game.

PS4 System Software Update 5.00

In addition, now you’ll see the system clock in the upper-right corner of the screen when you pop open the Quick Menu.

Virtual Surround Sound on PS VR

PlayStation VR now supports 5.1ch and 7.1ch virtual surround sound on your headphones when watching Blu-rays and DVDs in Cinematic Mode, making for an even more immersive viewing experience

Improved Tournaments Bracket Viewer

We have a new bracket viewer that shows full tournament brackets for Single Elimination and Double Elimination tournaments on PS4. This makes it easier for you to see the current tournament standings.

PS4 System Software Update 5.00

New System Language Additions

With this update, we’re adding the following system language options on PS4: Czech, Greek, Hungarian, Indonesian, Romanian, Thai and Vietnamese.

Team Tournaments

Prepare to recruit the best players you know, because Team Tournaments on PS4 are almost here. With this new functionality, you’ll be able to compete against other teams for prizes and status.

Team Tournament functionality will kick off on October 5, shortly after the release of the 5.00 update. The initial batch of titles supporting Team Tournaments will be Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, World of Tanks and Mantis Burn Racing, with more on the way. Head over to the Events section on your PS4 to check out details for different Events and Tournaments, and to start creating your team.

You can join or own up to a maximum of 60 different teams, and each team will have an owner and captain(s) who can manage the team. Only teams will be able to register for official Team Tournaments. Your team will have its own customizable team page where you can see team member information, and view upcoming and ongoing events that your team is currently registered for and competing in. In addition, you can easily check out your team’s results in past tournaments with a new bracket viewer that shows full tournament standings for Single and Double Elimination tournaments directly on PS4. Communicating and coordinating with your teammates is also simple via the integrated team chat feature.

Follow Anyone

PS4 5.00 - Who To Follow

Before 5.00, you were only able to follow Verified Accounts, but now you can follow any user without having to be friends with them (subject to privacy settings). 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. And under Friends, you’ll see a new Who to Follow section that will give you customized recommendations of who you can follow. The recommendations will be displayed in separate categories, such as Featured Verified Accounts, trending users, and suggestions based on games you’ve recently played.

Messages Update

PS4 5.00 - URL Preview

We have one more feature to add to the list of updates coming to Messages on PS4. If you send a message that contains a link to a website, messages will now display a preview of the website, like headlines and thumbnails.

App Updates

Outside of PS4, some of our apps are getting updates today too:

PlayStation Communities

Following this update, you can switch the app into landscape mode when you flip your phone sideways, so you get a wider view of the app and it makes it easier to scroll through. In addition, you’re now able to view and post animated GIFs on community walls. We’re also adding the following languages to the app: Czech, Greek, Hungarian, Indonesian, Romanian, Thai and Vietnamese.

PlayStation Messages

Horizon Zero DawnUncharted The Lost Legacy

Stickers for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and Horizon Zero Dawn are being added. And similar to the PS4’s Messages update, the PlayStation Messages app will also be updated to display previews of a website if you’ve received a link. Support for Czech, Greek, Hungarian, Indonesian, Romanian, Thai and Vietnamese are being added to the app.

Editors Opinion: Although these additions are nice. I would’ve liked to have seen more utilized for name changes, party chat expansions such as larger party count (At least 10-12 player count additions) and something more useful for the PS camera. As well as video messaging of per say 30 seconds to 1 minute clips to friends. Sadly with this update outside of a few welcoming features, I do not feel this warrants a full  5.00 update as previous updates were a bit more anticipated.

With firmware update 5.00 being fully revealed and available for download what do you think? are you satisfied with the results of this update to the PS4 and PS Apps? Comment below let us know and for more news make sure to check back with us here at Whats Up PlayStation.

  • Behind-the-scenes support for bundle and compilation discs, with or without add-ons, and discs which support games and add-ons (such as a “Game of the Year Edition”), which do not require developers rework any code.

Opinion: Although these are great ideas and features to be added. These details leave much to be desired for this to be an entire update to the big 5.0 firmware update. However it should be taken into account this is leak which isn’t an official release and may not (hopefully) include all the details for the upcoming firmware beta or even the official release of the official firmware update itself.
