The PlayStation 4's 2.0 system update is coming much sooner than we originally anticipated as Sony announced it'll launch on next Tuesday, October 28.

System update 2.0 will include a number of improvements, one of which is the highly-anticipated Share Play feature. The feature will allow players to pass the virtual controller online. The feature will only be available for PlayStation Plus members and will have a one-hour time limit, which should give those you pass the controller to enough time to either help you achieve your goal, or get a taste of a game to help them decide whether they want to purchase it or not. Although I'm sure this feature will be used as a way to leech a game from a friend one hour at a time.

The upcoming update will also feature previously announced features that include being able to play music from a USB stick connected to the console, themes, and improvements to broadcast applications that allow broadcasters the ability to archive their streams.

      Is there a video link of it in action anywhere?

      I think it would work bettter if Share Play was more similar to Steams "Family Sharing" platform. But that's just my personal opinion. An hour is a bit limited, especially when you consider how complex some newer games are becoming.

      Is this also going to include a YouTube app, as was promised for the Fall?

      Are we also going to get some control over the Camera as part of the broadcasting improvements?
