PS4: 10 Features Sony Must Implement In The Next Firmware Update

In-game Trophy support - where is it?!

It's a funny world when you fork out upwards of £400 for a console that actually has less functions than the one that thanks to the devaluing of technology post-release, is only a quarter of the price. But here we are, the newest console generation is shaky at best both critically and commercially, and although titles like Bloodborne, Far Cry 4 and Shadow of Mordor are recommendable to those who've already plumped up the cash, there remains to be any real system-selling titles or features you can point to that justify the cost or time invested. It really feels like they launched these things way too early, and especially in the case of a system that's built from the ground-up to have copious online support and firmware that'll constantly be getting updates and refinements - it only serves to paint a picture of Sony's execs throwing their hands up and screaming "We don't know... erm... how about remapping the buttons or something?!" before working out if Knack deserves a sequel yet or not. Not to be too doom n' gloom about everything, but it is getting to the point where - like last year - we're all looking to E3 as the all-saving bastion of hope in an otherwise sea of grey (literally, did you see The Order?) purely because the industry still hasn't pulled their finger out. With many newer press events choosing to show off new console features alongside the games themselves - and with Sony requesting a list of what fans want to see implemented - here's hoping they'll listen up sooner rather than later.
