A lot of people (like me) assume that a major game will be announced when the PlayStation 4 is released. But it's not always that way. Sony revealed new PlayStation 4 games a number of times, even without a new console. Playstation announced new games before the PS2 even launched.
In reality, much of Sony's PlayStation announcements aren't actually new games. Sometimes they find new uses for an existing game; other times they announce up releases. Developers offer previews of new games that many people forget about.
The PlayStation Network was launched in 2002, and Sony has added since then. There's a huge catalogue of content on there, but it used to be a bit of a pain to get into it. Each game was placed in a totally separate folder, and accessing the content would require you to know where to file it.
In autumn 2013, Sony introduced a much-needed feature: Friends Sections. These were folders that each person could safely place their games into, and allow them to search for each other's content. And there it stays, ready and waiting for you to save your progress.
Times have changed. The current PlayStation Network revamp makes key features far more accessible. Examples? All content is now grouped into sections called "Games" and "Apps." Any downloaded games are accessible in a Games section, and paid apps are in a Apps section. Everything you've ever bought is here, too. And if you've installed a game on a different computer, you can install it on any of those computers as well. (You can also purchase content from the network on any of your PlayStation 3s for convenience.) d2c66b5586
