ORIGINAL STORY 29/09/2015 12.14pm: PlayStation 4's next big update goes live tomorrow.

Hold your horses.

3.00 system software update, codenamed Kenshin, will be available from 30th September.

Sony offered a visual tour of the changes over on the PlayStation Blog. Headline additions include sharing video clips to Twitter, live-streaming directly from your PS4 to YouTube, and the ability to create PNG screenshots.

Meanwhile, a new hub for Events is added, messages are improved, you can create communities, and there's a new option for stickers.

The 3.00 update contains stickers themed around Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Knack, LittleBigPlanet 3, Resogun, and other games. Here's an example:

Instead of typing out a message, just send a sticker - like Drake looking at a watch, asking you to wait a minute.

Go nuts!
