PS4 Firmware 7.0 Comes with System Level HDR Tuning Settings for Brightness and Darkness

Jul 25, 2019

PS4 firmware 7.0 launched as a beta earlier today, with Sony touting the increased party size (from eight to sixteen players) and the capability to perform a system update with rebooting the PlayStation 4 console as the main new features.

However, as it turns out, there's another major addition that testers have discovered. PlayStation 4 owners with an HDR display will now be able to tune brightness and darkness at the system level, which is great news as there are plenty of games lacking a proper tuning feature. Early reports also suggest this affects applications such as Netflix, too.
