Google introduced YouTube Gaming last week, a new Twitch-like streaming service that Sony is putting into the new firmware update for the PlayStation 4.

The v3.0 firmware for the PS4 will not only include YouTube Gaming support but it will increase the cloud storage that PS4 owners have from the crappy 1GB they have now, to a more decent 10GB. The v3.0 PS4 firmware will also include the ability to livestream your PS4 gaming to YouTube Gaming, much like the built-in Twitch streaming that the PS4 is already capable of.

 

The new firmware will allow the usual screenshot sharing, but you can now blast video clips to Twitter too - albeit, they're limited to 10-second videos. Boo. There's also a new feature arriving, where you can ask your friends if you can watch them play with a new "Request to Watch" feature that is coming soon.
