Counterspy not updating
It's unfortunate, because the core gameplay of sneaking, assessing the situation, downing enemies, disabling cameras, pilfering plans and occasionally snapping necks is great fun.
Setting up a string of sticky bombs for a connect-the-dots series of explosions is especially satisfying, but delights like these are weighed down by is Cross-Buy, and one purchase unlocks the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita versions.

It's technically the "same" mission, but one play can feel dramatically more difficult than another.
It's annoying, and it distracts from what is otherwise well-constructed gameplay.

Developer Dynamighty created a very entertaining product in Counter Spy when it was released on the PS4.
Of course, most paranoid military authorities tend to keep their secret launch plans under heavy guard, so some sneaking and dispatching of enemy forces is in order.

Dying in Counter Spy is something that will happen, and if your experience is similar to mine, it will happen quite often.
