Overnight, a bunch of great announcements came through from Sony’s PlayStation Experience event. Rather than drip-feed them to you in single sentence form, which I know we all find annoying, here are all the smaller stories in a single post. Enjoy!

Resident Evil 7’s teaser demo gets a final update today, playable on PS4 and PSVR — for free. Hopefully the infamous finger mystery resolves itself this time.
