News: PS4 System Update 2.00 Coming Tomorrow

The long-awaited PS4 system update 2.0 is almost ready to be released to the masses, in fact, it’s coming tomorrow.

The latest PS4 system update, codenamed Masamune, will be releasing tomorrow and bringing with it a plethora of new features, including Youtube integration, the ability to play music from USB devices, sorting options for your digital games and themes that allow you to customise the home screen of your console.

You can check out the updates in the form of a handy list down below:

  • Share Play: 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. PlayStation Plus membership is required for certain Share Play features.
  • YouTube: Upload your gameplay highlights directly from PS4 to YouTube by clicking the “SHARE” button on DualShock 4. In addition, a YouTube app for PS4 will be available to download from the PlayStation Store.
  • Themes & Colors: Personalize your home screen background with select themes and colors. As a big thank-you to the PlayStation Nation, we want to kick-start your dynamic theme options by giving away a theme for two of the biggest titles gamers will be playing on PlayStation 4 this fall; Destiny and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Both themes will be available for download on Tuesday.
  • Live Broadcasting Enhancements: Search filters, archived broadcast support and more have been added to Live from PlayStation
  • Content Area & Library: Find and access your content quicker with a redesigned Content Area and improved filter and sort functions for the PS4 Library.
  • USB Music Player*: Insert USB memory with music in your PS4 and start playing your favorite tunes in the background.
  • What’s New: To make the activity feed more relevant and timely for you, What’s New will add Friends of Friends suggestions and Live Broadcasting updates from your friends at the top of your feed.

The PS4 isn’t the only PlayStation device getting an update, the PS Vita and PS TV will also be getting updated to version v3.35 allowing 4-player Remote Play support for the newly released PS TV (out in the UK from November 18th.)

Once the PS Vita and PS TV update goes live, you’ll be able to check the update notes here.
