Media Player

A nice little addition to Sony's absolutely insane E3 2015 press conference, the Japanese giant revealed that the PlayStation 4 will be getting a media player in the very near future. The official US PlayStation Blog states that the player will be available "this evening" on the PlayStation Store.

The player comes as a download from the store, and it'll allow you to mess about with any files you have on a USB device. Yes, you can finally play videos, look at photos, and play your music on your sleek new-gen console. Have you been waiting for this?
