PS4 video introduces new Share Play feature

PS4 video introduces new Share Play feature

Sony has released a video showing off PS4’s new Share Play feature.

Set to arrive this week as part of system update 2.0, it enables players to pass control of their game to another PS4 owner remotely via the internet.

The long-awaited feature was first announced during the PS4 reveal in February 2013. Sony says Share Play lets users:
•Share Screen – Share your screen with a friend, allowing them to spectate. This is ideal for PS4 owners that want to watch their friends play a game and provide helpful tips. PlayStation Plus is not required to use this.

•Hand over my controller – Pass your controller to a friend, virtually, and watch them play. Your friend does not need to own, or even download the game, in order to use this feature. This is perfect for introducing your friends to new games. The host will need to be a PlayStation Plus member, but the guest does not.

•Hand over another controller – If a game supports local multiplayer, you can have your friend join as player two. Again, the visitor does not need to own, or download the game in order to use this feature. Both players will need PlayStation Plus to use this feature.

Among other features, PS4 update 2.0 will also introduce video upload support for YouTube, themes, a USB music player and improved live broadcasting.
