Well its another Sunday and Gamescom was this week so there’s a TON of news to get to so let’s get started!

The News:

  • Sony has announced that in the upcoming fall 2.0 system update for the PlayStation 4 they will add a new feature called Share Play. This is actually an extension of a feature announced back at the original unveiling of the system. Back then it was shown that you would be able to have someone take control of your game for you to pass a difficult spot or something like that, it has now been extended to allow full co-op play even if your friend does not own the game. Share Play is limited to 60 minutes at a time but there is no limit on the number of times you can use it with your friends so as soon as the 60 mins ends you can jump right back in.
