Exciting PS4 Update about 2 Years Late

Sony has just announced an exciting upcoming update.

Our beta program for PlayStation 4’s next major system software update, version 3.50 (codenamed MUSASHI), kicks off tomorrow. If you signed up for the beta and were selected, keep an eye on your email for instructions on downloading.

Regardless of whether you’re in the beta, we wanted to detail some of the key features we’re adding to PS4 in this update. We’re making it easier to play together with friends and adding the ability to appear offline when you’d rather play solo.

A few notable features mentioned that should have been there AT LAUNCH are: Friend Online Notifications and the ability to Appear Offline. Seriously, how hard is that to implement? Considering they had it on the PS3 and in my eyes, basic functionality, what took them so damn long? Also note that there’s no announced release date. I’m glad Microsoft is stepping up their game because there’s nothing worse than a market leader getting complacent.
