By   /   Oct 27, 2014

System firmware update 2.0 will release for the PlayStation 4 tomorrow on October 28 and with that, Sony has published a video that gives us an overview on what the update will be bringing.

Dubbed as the “Masamune” update, it will be bringing a number of features to the console that fans have been requesting for months. This list includes YouTube integration, customization options for the main interface, a USB Music Player, overall improvements and Share Play which gives players the ability to invite friends for an hour-worth of co-op gameplay or instead take over their game.

The YouTube integration will finally let players upload their clips to the video sharing platform, as well as Facebook. The new customization options will allow users to opt from eight new color schemes with themes built into the system or the one which are available on the PlayStation Store.

The USB Music Player will come on to the dashboard automatically whenever the console detects a plugged USB device. Players will then be able to listen to audio from the device while playing games.

The Content Area has been redesigned, downloads can now be paused and resumed, and the experience of watching live broadcasts has been enhanced. There are various other minor tweaks as well which you can check out in the video above.

The PlayStation 4 isn’t the only platform getting updates tonight. Sony will also be releasing System Software update 3.35 for PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV. According to the company, this will bring four-player Remote Play support. Sony is also updating the PlayStation App on Android and iOS to v2.0 with a new home screen.
