    Games need to make better use of PSN's "What's New?"

    I really like What's New, but I'd like to see it used a bit better by games. The shining example for me at the moment is what Kz does with What's New as it posts achievements you've made during your game play - for example, it posted to What's New that I had beat my own kill streak record (10) in a MP match and also when I got the most objective points. To me this is much better than pages of just "So-and-so played ". More games need to be writing out interesting stuff to the What's New.

    I like how with resogun is shows your latest game score + difficulty.

    I think it would be cool for adventure games to show that you got a certain level in an rpg with maybe a screenshot too. Its hard to think of ideas that don't go into spoiler territory but if some stuff was amrked SPOILER and you had to click on to see that would be cool
    Ie. Got a really rare item in the witcher 3 or killed some huge beast boss and theres a screenshot of him dead

    With FIFA 14 and AC4 it tells you what trophies you earned last....

    Might show you more than that but I've not really looked!

    These features are still in their infancy. Hopefully they will expand after they get a feel of what gamers are asking for.

    Right! This is what I expect as well. I think they could be quite innovative with some of the stuff they post to it. Here's hoping.

    I like how VidZone shows what last songs you had listened too.
    You can then relisten to those songs from the what's new menu

    I feel like some people expect the ps4 and features to be fully developed. I mean take what a launch ps3 could do and where it ended up.

    That being said I agree with the OP that the "What's New" can be much more. The PS4 is still a baby... let's let it to grow up a little before we start scolding it!

    I actually think the What's New is already fully featured, my post was more about encouraging the game developers to make innovative and better use of it. I do expect this to grow in time.

    That would be pretty cool.
