One feature that we are particularly looking forward to is PS4 Events. This is not only going to put the official Sony events in one place, but also individual gaming events too, such as Double XP for Call of Duty and Battlefield which sounds really promising.

As we told you before, users will also be able to share videos to Twitter using the PS4 Share button. Communities is arriving too which allow gamers to set up groups with a message board, share screenshots and join games together.

You can read the notes above for further details. Remember that this is just the list so far – Sony states that they have more features on the way, let’s hope that online/offline friends notifications for PS4 is one of them!
