As well as announcing that their new Sony PlayStation TV mini console will be launching throughout Europe on November 14th and unveiling plenty of other juicy game trailers at Gameson 2014 this week. Sony has also announced that a new Sony PlayStation 4 update v2.00 will also be released.
Adding Share Play later this fall together with YouTube support and more. Sony describes Share Play as a “virtual couch” that allows you to join with friends and help out.
Share Play will be coming to PlayStation 4 consoles as part of the upcoming PlayStation 4 update v2.00, which is set to be released by Sony during this years fall. Sony explains :
“PlayStation 4 will create an online local co-op experience by allowing you to invite a friend to join your game—even when they don’t own a copy of it. With this first-of-its-kind feature, you’ll be able to play games with a friend just as if you were together in the same room.
Let’s say that with games… you’ll be able to invite your friend online to play against the Miami Heat for the championship as the San Antonio Spurs in NBA2K, tackle the challenging Towerfall Ascension Quest Mode together, or aide, heal, and protect you as Igniculus in Child of Light’s local co-op mode.
With Share Play, you can even jump into a game to assist a friend. For example, if there is part of a game that you can’t quite finish, you can invite a friend to take over your controls. Like handing over the controller to a friend on your couch, your screen will be shared as your friend gets through the part of the game that has been giving you trouble”
The new Sony PlayStation 4 update will also bring with it highly requested broadcast and video share features, allows users to both uploading your game play footage and dedicated app support for YouTube.
As well as enhanced real-time activity via friend-of-friend suggestions, providing instant access to friends’, recently played games’ footage, and a real name search will also be added, explains Sony. More information on the PlayStation 4 update is expected to be announced by Sony over the coming months and we will keep you updated as always.
