PlayStation 4 System Update Today Includes Highly Anticipated Share Play Feature

Posted October 28th, 2014 at 8:45 am


Sony released the big 2.00 software update for the PS4 earlier today. Among the new features and improvements is Share Play, which was announced first at the original system reveal nearly two years ago, and again highlighted at E3 over the summer. Share Play is naturally well-suited for use with sports games which makes it even more exciting.

Share Play allows for someone to join a friend’s game even if they don’t own it for up to an hour at a time. The visitor can either take over the host’s controller and play it on their own or join in for local co-op multiplayer. So not only can a person play their friend’s game and possibly┬ádecide they want to buy it for themselves but it has potential to be an amazing teaching or assisting tool as far as sports games are concerned.

Other items in the update include Youtube uploading, USB music player, home screen themes, and new live broadcasting features.
