PlayStation 4 2.0 system update releasing on Oct. 28

The PS4's system update version 2.0 will launch this Tuesday, bringing with it a bunch of new features.


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.

      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?
