PS4 system update 2.0 detailed


May 4, 2013
Sony has detailed a range of new features coming to PlayStation 4 in a major new system update.

System update 2.0 will let players find friends by searching for their real name, not just their PSN ID, and introduces the ability to upload shared videos directly to YouTube.

Most impressive, however, is the new Share Play functionality, a new feature that will allow PS Plus members to "invite their friends to join them in a shared gameplay experience even if they don’t own the game that’s currently being played".

"Whether it’s asking a friend to take over and help them overcome a particularly tricky section of gameplay or having them join in a game of intense multiplayer, Share Play is a completely new way of sharing these interactive experiences with friends."

System update 2.0 launches this autumn.
