Playstation 4

Sony may not issue major new software updates to its PlayStation 4 console as quickly as Microsoft does for its Xbox One, but Sony's updates generally add a bunch of new and significant features when they drop. The upcoming 3.0 system update, code named "Kenshin" is no different, and it will be released for all PlayStation 4 consoles on Wednesday, September 30.

Here's a rundown of the features added as part of the 3.0 update:

  • Owners will be able to share video clips of up to 10 seconds directly to Twitter
  • There will be a new dedicated section just for PlayStation Plus users
  • Gamers can broadcast live stream of their games directly to YouTube
  • Owners can now make PNG format screenshots of games in addition to JPEG.
  • A new Events hub will offer alert to special events in PlayStation 4 games.
  • The new Communities feature will allow players to create special groups to chat with others about shared activities
  • There will also be improvements to Messaging and Favorite Groups
  • The new Stickers feature will let users communicate with others via icons based on PlayStation games.
