Sasuke Update Adds 3D Blu-Ray Support to PSVR and External Hard Drive Support

Posted by at 10:21 am on February 3, 2017

Sony released version 4.50 of the PlayStation 4’s system software to beta testers. The update, code-named Sasuke, will allow PlayStation VR owners to watch 3D Blu-rays in stereoscopic 3D on the VR headset. It will also let people better customize their PS4 and use an external HDD.

Supporting 3D Blu-rays is Sony’s latest attempt to expand the PSVR’s content offerings. (It’s also some more salt to rub in the wound left by Sony’s decision not to include 4K Blu-ray support in the PS4 Pro.) The company also recently announced that PSVR would support YouTube’s 360-degree videos, for example, and previously allowed people to use the PSVR to watch videos on a virtual big screen. Now they’ll have access to 3D movies, too.

Now the console will finally let people use custom background. They have also overhaul the “quick menu” used while playing games.

for many of Us the biggest addition will be external HDD support, which is compatible with up to 8TB HDDs with USB 3.0 connections.

“You can download and install applications directly to your extra storage, and the saved contents are easily manageable through the settings menu,” Sony said in its announcement. “Also, all the applications saved in the external HDD will appear in the Content Launcher of the Home Screen so it’s easy to keep track of what apps you launched recently.”

That’s good news for anyone buys digital-only games!  Sony did make it easy to upgrade the built-in storage, but supporting external HDDs both ups the total amount of data people can store and let’s less hardware savvy folks add more store too.

Sony didn’t reveal all the changes coming in the Sasuke update–the company said only that “there are more features” that will be revealed soon.

We still don’t know when Sasuke  will be released to the public, but the 4.50 update is available now for members of Sony’s beta program.
