May 26, 2010, was the most stressful and exciting day of my life to date. I’ve called it the most horrible and most wonderful, too. I didn’t sleep the night before. I woke up to pages of notes in my BlackBerry (it was 2010, and I was an ex-consultant), timestamped in 15-minute intervals over several hours, proof that I had woken up, typed an idea rapidly into my phone, laid back… Read More —> Read More

A few years ago, Google launched a new kind of native ad in Gmail that sat at the top of the inbox and mostly looked like a regular email. For the most part, that was a pretty unobtrusive way of displaying ads (though some people were rather annoyed by them).

When news of the PS4’s first major update in over a year first hit, current devotees to Sony’s latest console eagerly discussed some of the finer points in the patch notes. After all, it’s been a long time since any significant changes to the PS4 have even been put on the table, let alone officially announced. A major update means more than just the typical stability fixes or minor quality-of-life improvements, so while it all seems rather understated, these kinds of software updates are a big deal.
To get a sense of just how big the PS4 3.0 update is, Sony recently announced that they were going to let a limited number of PS4 players beta test the client before it was released worldwide. That led people to believe there was more to the update than had previously been leaked, and Sony has now revealed that those assumptions were correct.
Sony opened up today about the upcoming PS4 Update 3.0, codenamed “Kenshin”, but the biggest and most unexpected news is that the beta test is going live as of today. John Koller, VP of platforms marketing for Sony Computer Entertainment America, confirmed that the lucky gamers chosen to test the massive update would get to kick off their September in style, posting the news on the Playstation Blog. Koller also cautioned that not all of the content featured in the beta was guaranteed to make it into the final product, before listing more changes that may be coming to a PS4 near you.
Of course, savvy PS4 users already knew about some of the potential updates, like YouTube broadcasting and Twitter upload support. However, that didn’t stop Koller’s post from providing a few exciting surprises. The most notable among the previously unknown changes is a boost to the PS4’s online —> Read More
