Below are the details, to quote: PS4's system software v2.00, codenamed Masamune, is making its arrival tomorrow and we can't wait for you to check out all the new enhancements it'll bring to your PS4.

This update adds unique, forward-looking features like Share Play, and addresses some of the most highly requested features from the community including YouTube integration, USB music player, ability to find players you may know, sorting options for PS4′s game library, and themes that change the look of your home screen. This is the biggest update we've delivered to date for PS4.

For a look at what you can expect, check out our walkthrough video on key Masamune features. And don't forget to watch the walkthrough video of the SharePlay feature.





Here's a recap of some top features you...
 

PS4 Firmware 2.0 Masamune Screens Show Yellow and Pink Dashboard

700°
13w ago - Following up on the recent PS4 Firmware 2.0 Masamune news, today Sony released as few more Masamune screens detailing how the PlayStation 4 dashboard looks in yellow and pink below.

To quote: "The PS4 firmware update 2.0 "Masamune" will allow you to paint your dashboard in seven different colors on top of the classic blue, and Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia gave us two examples as part of a press release. Yellow and pink (below).

It's interesting to see that the system tiles will remain blue, even if a slight transparency (which you wouldn't easily notice with the default blue color) will tint them with a slight hue from the background color.

The colors available will be blue, yellow, dark blue, red, teal, lavender, pink and dark grey. It's worth mentioning that those aren't official names, which haven't been disclosed yet.

Update 2.0 will be released on Tuesday, and then we'll probably learn what the blue dot near the online friends count means, as it still hasn't been announced.

Personally, I already know dark grey will be my choice. What about you?"

13w ago - PlayStation Public Relations guru Andrew Kelly invites fans to check out Share Play PS4 in action today on PlayStation 4 in a video below.

To quote: The PS4 system software update v2.00, codenamed Masamune, will be available to download on Tuesday, October 28th.

One of the features included in the update that I'm most excited about is Share Play, and we put together a quick video to show you how this innovative feature works. Check it out!





As we've said before, the best way to think about Share Play is like a "virtual couch." PlayStation 4 will create an online local co-op experience by allowing you to invite a friend to join your game for up to one hour at a time - even when they don't own a copy of it. Share Play has three main functions:

• 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...

To quote: PS4 1.76 Webkit Exploit

Developers nas and proxima have extended the recently released Vita Webkit exploit, and made it compatible with the latest PS4 firmware, firwmare 1.76. (Update: Proxima actually clarified that although this is the same webkit exploit, it was developed in parallel to the Vita exploit, and not "based" on it)

Their proof of concept code provides several samples, including a module dumper and some tool to create more advanced ROP code.

I am not close to my PS4 right now and cannot confirm if the Proof of Concept actually works, but the code looks perfectly legit, the devs behind this have a great track of record, and it should be a matter...

14w ago - Following up on the PS4 Firmware 2.00 Preview and Webkit Bug Fix rumor, Sony has now shared additional details on PS4 Firmware 2.0 Masamune spotlighting Share Play and Music Player below.

To quote: "Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia shared quite a lot of information on the features coming with firmware 2.0 "Masamune," but quite a few more caveats have been mentioned on the [Register or Login to view links] site.

The Share Play feature, which is built into the party chat app, will also follow the rules below:

  • You can be in a Party with 8 people, but Share Play can be done only with one of them at the same time. The rest of the Party won't be able to see the screen, but will still be able to chat with host and guest.
  • When the host is visualizing any other screen than the game being shared, the guest is shown a "stand by" screen.
  • The Share Play time is limited to one hour, and the remaining time is visualized in the Party screen, but you can start a new...
