Video Game News & Rumor Roundup 10/27/2014

Written by Native Gamer

This week, the most important news to me is the PlayStation 4 System Software update. The update, codename Masamune, drops on Tuesday October 28th, 2014 and will add many new features to the console. The largest of these new features being Share Play. Which will allow to invite a friend who does not own the game to join your game online from their console, for One Hour periods. The update also includes adding the ability to upload gameplay footage directly to YouTube, and a YouTube app, the ability to change your main menu theme and color, with a Destiny and a Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare being available for download the same day, Live Broadcasting updates, including the archived broadcast support, and adding a friend of friends suggestion in your ‘What’s new’ section. These new and update features, plus others not mentioned will all be included in the System Software update.
