Everybody loves a good system software update, and having just heard about Microsoft's wholesale revamp of their console's OS - some of which isn't actually going down too well if you skirt through certain corners of Reddit - now the changes and improvements Sony have planned for system software 5.00 on PS4 have been leaked to Eurogamer.

While Sony hasn't given us details on PlayStation 4 update 5.0 yet, Eurogamer obtained a copy of the patch notes and revealed that it will include the ability for PS4 Pro owners to stream on Twitch at 1080p and 60 frames-per-second.

If you don't have access to it, though, no worries - EuroGamer claims to have a list of some of the upcoming features, the first being that aforementioned ability to stream video on Twitch at a high resolution and game rate.

As of 5.0, you will be able to follow anyone's account, similar to the system on Xbox One.

Other additions include expanded account management options, with new family accounts that can feature multiple adult accounts, as well as updates to system notifications, making them visible from the Quick Menu, and more. Right now, the only accounts you can follow are verified accounts, which are mostly made up by official game accounts, developers, and popular Youtubers.

Players will be able to follow anyone on the platform, regardless of verification, without filling up the 1,000 friend limit. In family-friendly fashion, primary accounts will be able to set parental controls, and there can be more than one adult/guardian account.

System notifications will now be surfaced via the Quick Menu, so you don't need to head back to your home screen to see them. Requests can also be sent to adult accounts on other PS4s to join the same family.

There are more changes coming to the PS4 Pro, such as support for new languages: Czech, Thai, Greek, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Romanian and Hungarian.

Expect 5.00 sometime in the near future alongside an overhauled PlayStation App that isn't quite as useless as it now is.
