Sony have announce that the system update 2.00 for the PlayStation 4 will bring over the new Share Play feature.
The update is due out soon, and Share Play will allow users to invite their friends to play games with them, even if their friends do no own copies of the game.
Players can also pass over the controller ‘virtually’, so their friends can help complete a particular part of a game. Speaking on the PS Blog:
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, 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.
A YouTube app will also be introduced, as well as new broadcast and video sharing features. Let us know your thoughts via the comment section below.
