    Once again Sony has pushed another PS4 Firmware update forcing players to update their systems. One of the major changes is an updated webkit ultimately patching the recent 5.xx exploit even though the average user couldn't do much with it anyway.

    A new feature has been added making the user choose how much data they want Sony to collect from them, is it just me or has Sony added this feature in light of the Facebook incident with Cambridge Analytica? Anyways it allows people to send either necessary data or additional data including navigation, usage and settings data, all a bit spooky to me.

    At the time of writing this I haven't had to update my PS4 yet but i do suspect that with God of War on the horizon it might have to be done then. Anyways thanks for reading and let me know what you think of Sony collecting our data? Thanks :)
