PS4 Media Player | oprainfall

Sony threw in one little new feature last night before giving us a few curve balls and unexpected titles from its E3 conference: a Media Player feature is now available to use on PlayStation 4 consoles. All you need is a USB memory stick to plug into the controller slot, and you can upload video and photos, and even set your favorite music in the background while using the console.
