PS4 to get raft of features enabled in a 300 meg day one patch
Sony has announced details of the first system update for the PlayStation 4 and it's due on launch day.
Update 1.50 is around 300 MB in size so it shouldn't take too long to download but it will add a sizeable amount of functionality to the console. It will enable Remote Play and Second Screen support via the PS Vita which is pretty crucial to the success of the handheld given that Sony has placed so much stress on the cross-compatibility features that the PS4 and PS Vita share.
The update will also enable the ability to record, take screenshots and upload gameplay, the ability to broadcast and spectate gameplay online through Ustream and Twitch.tv, another of the PS4's cornerstone features.
Other features that will be enabled include play-as-you-download support, party voice chat, multi-logins for up to four people on one console, online multiplayer for PS Plus subscribers, the background music player, face recognition and voice commands via the new PlayStation Eye camera and Blu-ray and DVD movie support.
Sony has posted a detailed breakdown of the day one Update 1.50 over on the PlayStation Blog.
