Thanks to the beauty of the Internet there are a number of people who get access to information they really have no business spreading around. Noted Sony insider Tidux has leaked a new bit of information on Twitter, saying that the beta for the PS4 operating system version 3.00 is going to be coming on September 2. WCCF Tech has also come up with a leaked list of what is expected to be in this update but Tidux has said that log is not all that is coming in the update.

Perhaps one of the coolest new features is a better interface when it comes to seeing what your friends are playing. There is also something called Communities which will help you find players who have similar interests in games. Essentially you can make friends with people you’ve never actually met or interacted with before. That’s just the most newsworthy but it appears there’s quite a bit more coming.

Tidux had more information to share about the future of the PS4, or rather a game that is going to be coming to the PS4 in the near future. When last we heard from Quantic Dream, we knew the developer was making a rather interesting hire. Now it appears the company is just about ready to give the public a first glimpse at this game. Tidux says the developer will be showing off the game at the Paris Games Week. This makes quite a bit of sense considering Quantic Dream is a French company. Sony will be holding a press conference on October 27 and it stands to reason this is where we’ll see the new game.

Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

  • d0x360

    So basically stuff the Xbox one had 7 months after launch. Awesome?

    • BoyBigEyes

      Share family, where is it that feature? That PS4, have almost 1 year (shareplay)?

    • d0x360

      Ahh yes the single feature. Unfortunately that share play on ps4 has so much latency almost any game is unplayable but you go ahead and enjoy that 1 feature. Could be this time next year Sony will add the 20 other missing features the Xbox has and people have been asking Sony for… Or maybe they will make it so psn stays up for more then an hour at a time.

      Seriously dude if you want to get into argument over which system has more features… Don’t because its pointless. The Xbox does without question and the 2 features Sony has that Microsoft doesn’t (PS now and share play) are both awful and nobody uses them. If PS now weren’t losing Sony tons of money you would see stats on how many sub’s they have. They would flaunt it and brag brag brag. Dont hear much bragging these days do you

    • BoyBigEyes

      One? You are very misinformed my friend! How long takes your XBox to install a game? Isn’t for sure less than a minute. Are only 14 games that can’t be used on SharePlay. I know, 14 games is alot, when PS4 have 743 games versus 481 games on XBone. The PS4 feature i like most – games! 😉

    • d0x360

      Took about 16 min to download forza 6. On psn it took 4 hours to download god of war 3. Crazy I know but what can you do!?

      I don’t know what fanboy team to join either… I mean. I just posted a review to YouTube of until dawn where I did nothing but praise it.

      So do I fanboy Xbox or PlayStation…. God help me!

    • BoyBigEyes

      I really hope God’s helps you! You need a brain. Download = Install???

    • d0x360

      Sorry kiddo I don’t buy discs I’m not poor so I don’t need to trade them in after.

      Also due to my not poorness I do in fact have a very fast connection with incredibly low latency.

      Yes 4 hours for god of war. Had I downloaded that same 35 gigs off xbl or steam it would have taken maybe 15-20 min

    • Scott Trumps

      Poor? dude 80% of people choose disc because they prefer to have the game in their hands. I make 6k every 2 weeks if you call that poor I’d love to know what you do .If the Xbox was SO much better then why the units still haven’t sold much more than when I was released?? I think the world knows what’s more useful to have

    • d0x360

      It was a joke Scott but let’s be honest with each other. The vast majority of gamers on modern systems want the disc so they can trade it in.

      Second…who cares which systems sell more? Do you get an check every month Sony is in the lead? Does Sony selling more effect the fun of the games you play.

      You people… You focus on the wrong things. It’s sad and hilarious at the same time.

      Here’s and idea. Ignore the box and just play games. Stop caring about or watching sales numbers. They mean NOTHING.

      Another little secret for you. Total console sales aren’t important attach rate is. Guess which console has has the best attach rate? The Xbox.

      It doesn’t matter if a billion ps4’s are sold if only 100 people buy games.

      Regardless…ignore it. Play games. PLAY GAMES. Stop worrying about anything else. Buy a game, play it, enjoy it. Dont go looking for its sales numbers as if you had a stake in its sales.

      You’re welcome.

    • Scott Trumps

      In your ending statement you contradicted everything you said. And no the Xbox doesn’t have the best attach rate. And no most gamers don’t want disc to trade to trade it in. I like seeing a actual collection of all my media except music. People bought the ps2 up like crazy before online gaming with consoles was even a big thing. Xbox came out and didn’t even put a dent in the ps2 sales. That’s enough proof right there even though it had less graphics and speed as the Xbox did. NONE of that mattered. It’s been a proven fact in studies.. People buy Xbox because of brand and ps4 because of graphics out of the 2

    • d0x360

      Care to cite a source on attach rate… Go on.

      As for disc collections you are thinking like a core gamer. Most gamers don’t go to gaming sites they don’t follow news they don’t care. They buy a game they play it then they trade it in.

      You and I might collect but the majority of the 100 million gamers don’t. People like us…we are the 1%. Stop thinking like the 1% and see the other point of view.

    • Scott Trumps

      No actually none of my friends trade games in most of them don’t even go to a gamestop to buy their games. They all tell me that if they can’t get at least 50% of what they paid for them then they keep them. It’s too much trouble to sell them on sites even. As far as attack rate. There is so much more to do on a ps console! One of my favorites being that there are not nearly as my kids we often party up just to cut up also a lot of people use playroom too hang out. People buy the stuff for the ps4 that no one wants on the Xbox. Also for me so many more of my friends are on ps. But all in all its a biased preference. To each his own. I had a 360 for 5 years and I had to have it repair 2 times and the 3rd I actually had no choice but to buy a new one. And my first Xbox I had to get a second one because it got bricked

    • d0x360

      Again it’s your friends they don’t represent the majority of gamers there is billions of gamers you have to take into consideration and the majority of them buy something play it for a while and then they trade in

    • d0x360

      $3000 a week doing what? Please enlighten us.

    • Scott Trumps

      I own a janitorial service. I clean doctors office and bar associations

    • d0x360

      That’s awesome dude congrats man. I mean that. Owning your own business is hard work.

    • Scott Trumps

      It’s ok. Just a lot of demand and pressure. You never know when you’ll get a call about someone complaining about something.

  • Scott Trumps

    Lol the Xbox only had like 5 of these partial features since launch and the PC had them before Xbox. After this if you actually read and compare the ps4 will have features that no other game machine has ever shown. Don’t get too ahead of yourselves xbugs….. People still like the ps4 more
