PS4's 3.50 update is coming, provides 'appear offline' and remote play

Do not be alarmed! Brave Fencer Musashi was an amazing game (with an okay lesser known sequel), but it doesn't have anything to do with this PS4 update, as it's merely codenamed "Musashi," for the actual historical figure no doubt. I c...
