Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe just released three trailers showcasing PS4’s system software update 5.0, dubbed “Nobunaga.

The trailer showcase three of the update’s most relevant new features and improvements.

The first video is about the ability to livestream on Twitch at 1080p and 60 FPS. It’s pretty self-explanatory, so I’m not sure why they made a trailer about it, but there you have it.

The second trailer highlights the improvement to the control of notifications, letting players decide where those pesky pop-ups will appear, and where they won’t. That’s definitely useful, if you ask me. I was starting to hate them, and prior to 5.0 I simply turned them off entirely.

The third video showcases the ability to select specific gaming group among your friends. It’s certainly nice for the social ones among us who have a ton of friends on their PS4. I’m rather antisocial, so I don’t see myself using this very much, but I’m sure many will appreciate.

The Ps4’s System software update 5.0, nicknamed “Nobunaga” after Japan’s famous warlord of the Sengoku Era (a naming standard that has been maintained since the first major PS4 update) was released earlier this morning, bringing quite a few new features.
