    PlayStation 4 Firmware 3.0 Adds YouTube Broadcasting and Twitter Video Upload Features

    PlayStation 4 firmware 3.0 is currently in beta in Japan and it appears PS4 users will be getting an alternate method of broadcasting and sharing their video games.

    According to Japanese website Pocket News, with a translation via Gematsu, broadcasting via YouTube is coming to PS4.

    Recently, YouTube announced it will be launching a new app and website, called YouTube Gaming, designed to host gaming content this summer. The hub will feature videos and live streams of over 25,000 games from various game publishers and YouTube creators.

    YouTube streaming would offer an alternative to Twitch and Ustream for PS4 owners.

    The translation also reveals users will be able to upload 10 second game clips to Twitter.

    PS4’s Share function will also get the ability to support screenshots and video clips, in addition to broadcasting.
    An Events section has also been added to the main menu to allow users to “discover, participate, and view events.”
    Check out the entire list of features in the firmware beta test below:

    Main Points

    • [Events] has been added to the main menu. From a PlayStation-related events list, you can now discover, participate, and view events.
    • [Community] has been added to the [Friends] menu. [Community] is a feature that lets you find close players with similar preferences and interests. You can create a new community or join a previously established community. Through the community, you can get into games and parties, and discuss common interests.
    • In [Now Playing], users will see a list of what users are playing, and from that list can easily start a game or form a party. You can also request to view a user’s gameplay. [Now Playing] has been added to What’s New, [Friends], [Community], and [Messages].

    is it just me, or this sharing-upload thing is close to useless? who wants to see another person playing? I WANT TO PLAY! gaming clips on twitter and youtube? come on. Give us tools to customize our PS4 like we could in PS3! I couldn't care less about this social sharing thing. You could remove the share button from my controller anytime

    isn't every major (full number) update supposed to have at least ONE thing that matters?

    If I randomly add you, it's because you're awesome...wanted an answer? There it is. =]
