A few weeks ago we reported on a possible leak for the contents of the upcoming PS4 firmware and it looks like we were spot on with the list of new features coming to the console. But there’s a very important extra that’s been added to the list since, and for many gamers, it’ll be the most important one. Continue reading PS4 firmware update 3.0 has a much requested upgrade
It’s been a while since any new features have been added via a firmware update to the PS4, but that could all be set to change with the arrival of 3.0 if a leaked report from Japanese testers turns out to be true.

The update will unlock Remote Play (use the Vita instead of your TV), Second Screen (Vita/tablets/mobile function) and the video sharing and spectating features. There’s also multiple logins, the play while you download feature, voice chat, facial recognition and voice commands and a background music player.
