The PS4 upcoming update Kenshin will also allow users to stream exclusive Sony events through the event menu, as well as share them to any of their friends using a PS4. Furthermore a community menu will also be introduced with the 3.00 update allowing gamers to create or find a community that has gamers with a similar interest. With the community menu, gamers will also be able to comment and communicate directly with other members in the list. Start a discussion or share a “message of the day” with the community members options was also spotted in the earlier revealed screenshots by Sony Japan.

Today’s screenshot also revealed that 3.00 will also be bringing in the Now Playing menu which will allow users to quickly join a party, request a screen share along with offering quick access to the PlayStation Store to purchase a game that their friend is playing.

Furthermore the upcoming update is also said to benefit PS4 PlayStation Plus members as once updated, they will be offered an increase in PS4’s cloud storage capacity from 1GB to 10GB. Other new features included in the 3.00 update are;
