This is definitely a quite sizable update, and it’s nice to see that Sony is finally delivering features it promised since the debut of the console in 2013. If you’re curious on what will come next, I am as well, but as usual your guess is as good as mine.

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.
