Sony on their blog briefed the members of the PlayStation community with the the major updates coming along with 3.0 software update.
The 3.0 update, named Kenshin, brings with it YouTube streaming, cloud storage capacity increment, introduces a new events hub and much more.
YouTube has dedicated a portion of their website to the gamer community and has named it YouTube Gaming. It lets you stream games online much like Twitch, since it had been built for competition with Twitch.
The update also lets you allow to record 10 second clips of your gameplay and upload it on Twitter and the cloud storage of PS Plus members has been increased to 10GB from 1 GB because data fills up very quickly and a storage meter has also been introduced which lets you keep track of your storage and helps you in your data management.
Another major part of the update is the new events hub. The aim of the events hub is to make players keep up to date with what’s happening with the game they’re playing. Players will be notified of events such as Double XP event through the events hub.
With this update you can also keep track of your friends and see what they’re upto whilst playing games. This means that you can see what your friends are playing and even request them to share their gameplay live through the ‘Request to Watch’ feature.
The update also brings the new Communities feature. This will allow you to have access to the message board and join parties or games through the Community Now Playing feature.
The exact date for the release of the update 3.0 hasn’t yet been specified but we can see the update running through some beta before the official release.
