Predictions for PS4 4.5 beta update...

Jan 14, 2017
What are you hoping or predicting for the PS4 beta update? Of course we want name changes and other key features, but what do you really want?

I don't think we are going to get name changes like people want, it will be more along the lines of the Real Name, in that you will have a nickname you can use but it will still display your psn name as well.

uh, we already have that. You can let people see your real name in-game (MP game obviously)  instead of your ID (I think only if they're on your friend's list but not sure). Pretty sure I have it set to friends only.

 

Or do you want a nickname as well as real name and ID? You r ID IS your nickname basically....

I know we already have that, tis why I referenced to it. 

 

They will add another section like real name, this will be used to change your name if you want. and the new section will be visible to all not just close friends. As for me I don't want anything, happy with the name I use and will not change it.

If we get something it will be similar to Japan's display name.

 

That said, I think the time between the signups, and the beta starting has been about a month. So some time in February.

 

I don't know what features, but I'd like to get a customize XMB.

Idk i think whatever they are doing with the name is bigger then just masking it as a display namr they are actually going in & moving everything to a base id to free up your actual psn you use now according to the SDK update from awhile back.

Meaning that all your purchases saves etc will no longer be tied to your PSN ID freeing it up to be changed.

I hope they bring the black notification box back again. The white is terrible and doesnt fit. this isnt PS1 , so the color scheme doesnt look right. I still cant believe someone thought it was a good idea..and I hope theyll bring back the transparency that the ps3 had. It may just be me when I say this, but the ps3 UI was more aesthetically pleasing than the ps4 UI. The dynamic themes look so cheap compared to ps3's, and the UI isnt smooth. I think they compensated for a faster UI rather than a pretty one, which isnt wrong.
