Did you know the PlayStation 4 has a quick menu? Because it does. It's not something Sony advertises a lot, so it's easy for most people to be completely unaware of it. If you're familiar with the Xbox One's quick menu when you press the Xbox home button on your controller, then you'll get an idea of how Sony's works. With the press of a button you can access some of the most important and most used features like the power options, your friends list, party options, and much more.
