Sony announced their next major PlayStation 4 update a few weeks ago, and although that already feels like a lifetime, a little more patience will be required. It's not quite ready to go, but the House of Kratos has revealed a bit more about what you can expect in the next big set of firmware, including a little more information on the new video editing suite.
The Playroom, for those of us who invested in the new PlayStation Camera, is a collection of bonus games that are fun to play in short bursts with friends and family. It's forced onto the console, so you can never delete it, but it's all but useless if you don't have the peripheral needed, and so a lot of people have managed not to see the moderate but very real fun offered.

It was turning up for pre-order in stores at the beginning of the year, and development was confirmed by a senior Sony employee last month. Stores were even accepting pre-orders and offering bonuses.

It's been less than two weeks since InFamous: Second Son and it's already seen its first two patches. Despite that, there's still more to come. Sucker Punch's Brian Fleming took to the PlayStation Blog to describe some of the new features you'll find in the upcoming patch.
A PlayStation-focussed survey from Sony seems to hint at some future features that might end up appearing on the PlayStation 4. Many are options that fans have been asking for, so it's nice to see they're paying attention to reaction.

A short teaser video from the official Call of Duty Instagram page shows a distinctly Predator-esque level, with a distinctly invisible threat hunting the player. Although it's not expressly said that Predator will be making an appearance in the next set of DLC maps, which the video is a teaser for, it's pretty obvious.
