Here’s what you need to know about Sony’s latest major PS4 update

August 13th, 2014 at 6:10 PM
PS4 Update Share Play

Sony revealed on Tuesday that PS4 system software update v2.00 would be arriving this fall with a few features that owners of the new generation console have been waiting for since launch. Some of those additions include new broadcast features, the ability to upload directly to YouTube and an enhanced real-time activity feed in the What’s New section on the dashboard, but the real bombshell is Share Play.

Share Play is a feature that Sony discussed before the PS4 even hit store shelves. It didn’t quite make launch, but it looks like we’re finally going to be able to experience virtual couch co-op this fall. With Share Play, your PS4 creates a local online co-op experience by allowing you to invite players to your current session even if they don’t own the game.

You’ll also be able to take over for a friend who can’t quite beat that boss or finish that race or find the end of that one level. You will be able to share your screen with a friend who can take control of the game for as long as it takes to overcome the challenge and then take back over when you’re ready.

There are more features scheduled for the v2.00 update, but we’ll have to wait until closer to release to find out more.
