With the new system, users can continue to enjoy unique and interactive entertainment experiences only available on PlayStation, including the wide array of game titles and strong network offerings.

The PS4 system’s games portfolio will continue to expand with highly anticipated titles from third-party publishers as well as SCE Worldwide Studios such as SENGOKU BASARA4 SUMERAGI (CAPCOM CO., LTD.), METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN (Konami Digital Entertainment Co., Ltd.), GOD OF WAR III Remastered, Until Dawn, and The Tomorrow Children.

Sony will continue to expand the world of PS4 to deliver entertainment experiences that are only possible on PlayStation. Sony has also updated its PlayStation app for iOS and Android with a couple of nifty features. The first is the ability to enter PSN gift cards and promotional codes, so users no longer have to power on their PS4 to redeem them. The second is the option to display comments on their phone or tablet while they are broadcasting from the console perhaps a simpler way to keep their streaming setup neat and tidy.
