Push Square: "Consoles are getting more and more complex. There was a time when we expected our favourite system to play games and little else – but now we demand video streaming, direct communication with our friends, network-wide achievements, and more. Sony’s current flagship console, the PlayStation 3, wasn’t designed with such functionality in mind, and it has suffered as a result. Patches take an age to download and install, firmware updates are the ultimate first-world problem, and the entire user experience feels cobbled together. But while we’ve put a brave face on those issues for the past six years, the PlayStation 4 looks set to rectify them all – and it’s one of the primary reasons that you should be excited for the next generation machine."
