PS4 update lets parents decide which games kids can and can’t chat in

Sony is giving the PlayStation 4 one more big update before the PS5 arrives, and it’s particularly good news for parents. A version 8.00 update releasing today makes multiple additions, including simpler and more adaptable parental controls. Limits on communication and viewing user-made content are now lumped together to make it “easier for parents to understand.” Crucially, kids can now ask for permission to use communications in specific games — you can make an exception if you know a young one will be talking to friends.

Not everything is positive. The 8.00 update removes user-made events and the creation of private communities. You can still use private communities that already exist, but they’ll clearly dwindle without the option to make more. Sony hasn’t explained the move, but we’ve asked for comment.

If you prefer buying older PlayStation games over the web or on mobile, you may not be able to do that for much longer.

Effective October 19th, the PlayStation web store will remove that option, according to Planète Vita and the mobile app’s update will be available on October 28th.

KEY POINTS

  • Valve recently released The Last Stand DLC for “Left 4 Dead 2
  • The new campaign introduced new weapons, rolled out bug fixes and featured characters
  • The Last Stand DLC could indicate that Valve is open to developing “Left 4 Dead 3”

Valve rolled out The Last Stand DLC campaign for “Left 4 Dead 2,” ending an almost a decade of update drought for the successful horror title, but a new report believes that the studio’s recent activities could be hinting that “Left 4 Dead 3” could be on the way.

While many believed that Valve is no longer actively developing games, the release of “Half-Life: Alyx” and The Last Stand update prove otherwise.
