PS4 update lets parents control how long their kid can play

PS4 update lets parents control how long their kid can play
From TechCrunch - February 7, 2018

Folks worried that their kids are spending a little too much time gaming should be pleased to hear about Sonys latest PS4 update.

System software update 5.50 includes a new feature called Play Time Management, as well as changes to the Library interface, the ability to add custom wallpapers, and a supersampling mode that makes 4K games look better on 1080p TVs.

Play Time Management gives Family Managers (or other adult family members set as guardians) the ability to set limits on their kids play time and which games theyre playing and/or watching. Family Managers can set their kids Play Time limits on the PS4 itself or through PSN on the web.

So as not to surprise kids in the middle of a sick run, Play Time Management will warn kids that their time is running short so they can finish up and save.

Other new additions include a This PS4 and PS Plus tab, differentiating between apps and games already installed on the PS4 and apps and games you have on the PS Plus Monthly free games platform, respectively.
