Anyone who owns a PlayStation 3 will know that that the console was tweaked and patched with alarming regularity, most of the time for no apparent reason other than to “improve the stability of some software.”
Sony have explained that they are taking an alternative approach on PlayStation 4, the complete opposite of how the previous console was updated.
“What we want to see is what people think about this approach and what we’ve done by going the opposite of what we did with PS3, where we had a lot of updates and it wasn’t always the most positive thing,” explained Vice president of product planning Murray Hume to Digital Spy.
“One of the main things is, we’ve learned a lot from our mistakes on PS3, to be honest, in trying to improve on PS4, and we hope we’re doing that. But if users tell us they want it different, then that’s fine,” he added.
Microsoft’s once a month update seem to be the perfect way to drip feed in new features, perhaps Sony should adopt that strategy, what do you think?
