The PlayStation 4 started in North America on November 15th, 2013. Some two and a half years later, the PlayStation 4 has received many changes to the overall interface and design. When the console initially launched it had a very simple user interface that was lacking many features. Since launch we have received an abundance of new notification options, more societal connectivity, SharePlay, PlayStation Today, PlayStation Vue, a re-branding of PlayStation Music that now incorporates Spotify, and many more features. What does all of this mean for Sony as a company? These new additions have continued to help the PlayStation brand lead the pack in console sales, selling millions more components than its counterparts in the Wii U and Xbox One.
One fantastic way to accomplish this task is to continue pushing the envelope on the PlayStation technology and the services they are offering. New apps are added nearly every week. New games are releasing every day. The console now boasts an array of games that contains hundreds of unique adventures for each and every variety of video gamer. Not only is the catalogue strong today, the lineup for 2016 is looking bigger and better than ever. Not to mention the amount of third-party games which will release even more games on the console this year.
PlayStation is constantly innovating and we believe they will continue to do so well into the future. Now that we have looked at what’s currently going on with the PlayStation 4, let us take a look at where it’s headed and what you would like to see added to the console. We mentioned a good amount of the releases coming up, but what other things will Sony be adding to the interface and feature list of its console? Will they add folders to help clean up the user interface slightly? Could they allow users to modify their PlayStation Network ID? Some rumors even suggest they may be producing a PlayStation 4.5 that would add greater performance in a much better package which might be announced soon. What do you want to see?
