When Sony announced the PS4 they presented an idea that the next generation should be about social gaming networks. Basically, next generation consoles should allow gamers to share and interactively discuss their games. This weeks PS4 update 2.0 brings gamers closer to that vision with Share Play.

Boy does it look promising. If you watch the video it will tell you that Share Play lets you give friends the ability to watch you play, virtually hand over the controller and let them play for you and have a friend play together with you without them owning the game. There is a one hour session period when you use Share Play (which is kind of weird) but you can just start another session right after it ends.

Whether the feature lives up to the promise or not, we will see. Share your thoughts in the comments.
