In case you missed it, PlayStation 4 firmware update 4.50 has been detailed by Sony - and beta invites are going out as we type up this very article. The headline act here is that the console will finally support external hard drives - which is obviously an incredibly handy feature to have when you're at the point of desperately deleting games in order to make room for stuff.

Elsewhere, custom wallpapers are going to be a thing, the quick menu is being refreshed to be even more intuitive, and notifications are being simplified so that you can better see what's going on. Oh, and PlayStation VR is getting 3D Blu-Ray support.

Of course, there's also the rumoured (read: all but officially acknowledged) PS4 Pro 'boost mode', which you can read about through here. Basically, this mode will supposedly allow Pro users to benefit from performance boosts, even if the game that they're playing hasn't received a Pro compatibility patch.

So, which feature are you most looking forward to when update 4.50 launches within the next few weeks? Vote in our poll, and then give your PS4 a pat on the back in the comments section below.
