    Every month the Xbox One gets new updates which improve the consoles user interface and adds new features, the PS4 menawhile has not had so many updates and what updates it has had have only been to fix stability issues, however the next update for the PS4 could be a game changer.

    Up until now the PS4 updates have not only been few and far between, but have also been nothing to shout about, but all that is about to change with the upcoming 2.0 firmware. Not only will the next firmware update have Youtube support which will allow PS4 users to upload gameplay directly to Youtube but perhaps the most impressive feature is Sony's 'Share Play'.

    Share Play which was first announced at E3 will allow PS4 users to play with their PlayStation Network friends over the internet even if that person doesn't own the game!
    This feature will only need a single copy of your game which will be run locally on one system, you will be able to invite your friends to play that game with you by streaming it to their consoles.

    Such a simple concept that could potentially finish the Xbox One since in effect Sony is giving people the ability to play games they do not own for free!

    There will of course be limitations to this new feature, you will have an hour long cap on 'Share Play' sessions and Sony say that lag may occur. However it is still an amazing new feature which will almost certainly attract more gamers to the PS4.
    What do you think of the new 'Share Play' feature, are you an Xbox One owner which is considering buying a PS4 now because of this new feature? Let us know in the comments below

      you can already share games with friends on xbox.
      plus if you wanted to play a game so bad you would just buy a copy

      The Reason you have been seeing so many more updates on the xbox one is because the xbox one wasn't a finished product when it was release. While the PS4 was full of features from the start. This whole time xbox has been playing catch up. Examples of this are, ps4 had support for any headset, had volume controls for party, USB support, battery bar for control, the OS ran smooth and no bugs.
