I had a similar reaction when I saw this in the patch notes. I have to sit so far away when I play Destiny because of the FOV, at least I can scoot closer when I dive into this NMS Update tonight.
FOV ADJUSTMENT FOR PS4!? OH MY GOD. This is the only thing I wanted! I can finally play again without getting a headache. \o/
So we have the start of a multiplayer system, where we can now chill with up to 16 others on a planet and explore (they appear as orbs currently, probably due to players not actually having character models yet).
We have low flight (finally) and they've even added a punishment for flying low if you crash into things (you have to repair your ship before you can leave that planet).
And we have STARGATES!
With all this... I still think I'm most excited to discover more in the story and universe of NMS.
