Connecting to the PC will require a application and connection with a gamepad. Broadcasting via Dailymotion is now an option.
Social features include the ability to schedule time and date for a specific game. Players will also have the ability to appear offline and get notified when a friend signs-in. Additionally the Playstation Plus Hub will be updated giving players easier access to their library and free space.
