PS4’s latest system update is currently available and brings with it a host of new features. Right out of the gate players will notice that folders can now be created from within the main dashboard which allows for sorting of games, apps, downloaded movies, etc.
Along with the new customization and organization options for the dashboard, a new Quick Menu has also been implemented. Simply holding down the PS button on the controller will bring up a menu for any number of system commands. If Players want to queue up a playlist to jam to while slaying monsters in Dark Souls the new Quick Menu is the place to do so.Widgets in this menu can be customized for quick access to things like Broadcast and Music. Parties can also be started and maintained via this window.
HDR, for games compatible with it, is also available with this update and does not require the new PS4 Pro to take advantage of the graphics boost. However, for those planning to purchase a PS4 Pro, Sony has also added a new feature that allows players to transfer games and data from one PS4 console to another via LAN connection.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
