on August 15, 2016 12:28 PM

Today, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced the main features of the upcoming PS4 system software update 4.00, nicknamed “Shingen.” The Japanese arm of Sony went a step further, sending in a press release with the first screenshots of the update. Unfortunately, they’re all in Japanese, but we translated them all for you.

You can check them all at the bottom of the post, alongside the original Japanese screenshots. Keep in mind that the translations aren’t official, and the wording might change slightly in the final version. Also, it’s worth mentioning that the menus themselves are work-in-progress, so they might be revised before the end of the beta.

Interestingly, we notice that the system software update includes privacy settings by game, allowing you to prevent any PS4 game from appearing in your activity feed, profile and trophy list. You can also hide PS3 and PS Vita games from your trophy list.

The share menu will also allow you to upload your screenshots directly to a message or to a community, streamlining the process.

Below you can see the original screenshots in Japanese.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
