Sony has fixed one of the worst features on the PlayStation 4: the PlayStation Store search function.
Previously when you wanted to look up a game by typing in letters you would be given a vertical list of letters to choose from and would slowly fill in your query as auto-filled data began to populate the right side of the screen. Sony has apparently realized their mistake after nearly four years and have finally fixed this search function by giving users an actual keyboard on-screen to type in their search items. Now instead of slowly picking through a column of the alphabet you can work your way through a digital keyboard using the analog stick, d-pad, a real keyboard, or the Dualshock 4’s gyro controls. This function is available now and does not require any firmware update.
