Now Playing: GS News Update: PS4 System Update 4.00 Out Now

Right on schedule, Sony today released a new PlayStation 4 update that adds new features and changes the layout and look of some screens.

PS4 4.00, as the update is called, weighs in at 312 MB. One of its most welcome additions is folders for managing games and apps. There are also redesigned menus. You can see how this looks in the image gallery below.

Additionally, the 4.00 update makes some nice changes to PlayStation Music so you no longer have to leave a game or app to make a song selection or pause the music. There is also a redesigned content info screen, while the What's New screen has also been updated with a new layout.

Other new features include the introduction of HDR support for all PS4s, which Sony confirmed last week during its PlayStation Meeting event. Also, there is a new data transfer feature that lets you move your games, saves, and account info from one PS4 to another over a wired LAN connection. If you're planning to pick up a PS4 slim or a PS4 Pro, this will seemingly make it easy to upgrade to either console.

This new update also adds support for Twitch, YouTube, and Dailymotion broadcasts in 720p at 60 FPS. Additionally, there are changes for Trophies, as you can now see the details for hidden Trophies, while you can also view Trophies even when you're offline.
