Personally I think this looks way more like a 2.6 release than a 3.0.  I'm not really waiting for anything in particular at this point but I feel like a jump from 2.5 to 3.0 should offer more than just this.  There is some hope that this isn't all though:

Any and Every little bit is welcomed IMHO.

Still no support for pinning tiles to the main menu? Sigh, maybe next time...

The YouTube streaming is pretty big.  Not 3.0 big, but still....

I agree, that is pretty big IMO as well. More of a .1 upgrade though. But I am glad they keep adding improvements.

  • Online storage capacity increase — PS4 online storage capacity has increased from 1GB to 10GB for all PS Plus members. In 3.00 system software, you’ll see that we added a handy usage meter to monitor your available storage capacity, and a new Auto-Upload menu has been added to Application Saved Data Management.
  • YouTube live — PS4 owners will be able to livestream gameplay to YouTube. Livestreams will be viewable across YouTube, including on the new YouTube Gaming mobile app and website.
  • Events — A new hub for events has been added, giving an overview of activities taking place in the games you play most, as well as official broadcasts. For instance, you may see an update for a Double XP weekend, a special enemy appearing at a scheduled time, or seasonal events like in-game towns being decorated for the winter. You’ll also receive notifications when the event starts, or if the timing changes.
  • Favorite Groups — Favorite Groups has been added to the Friends app, letting you quickly access groups of people you like to play games with frequently. This will make the process of getting a game session up and running even easier.
  • Communities — PS4 users will have the ability to create communities based around shared interests, like games, genres, and more. Communities include a message board with general discussion, screenshots shared by players, and the ability to join parties / games. If you want to tackle a big multiplayer raid, but don’t have enough friends available, this could be a great way to connect with other players who are looking for the same thing.
  • Sharing video clips to Twitter — Users will have the ability to share video clips directly to Twitter. Maximum video length is 10 seconds, though you’ll have the ability to trim longer clips.
  • Stickers — Tired of typing out messages? With this update, you’ll be able to send stickers to friends through your messages.
  • Now Playing / What’s New — The Now Playing screen will display even more information about what your friends are doing, and you’ll be able to quickly jump into a game, party, request a screen share, or get sent to the PS Store to buy the game your friend is playing – further enhancing the social relationship with your friends online.
  • Live from PlayStation — We’ve improved the Live From PlayStation app, making it easier to view popular trending broadcasts in real time.
  • Request to watch gameplay — Want to view a friend’s gameplay session? Now you can send a ‘Request to Watch’ notification to a player, which will start a live broadcast or Share Play invitation to the person playing.

I honestly still don't see anything there that merits a 3.0 though.  We're on what now, 2.57 I think... This seems like a 2.6 or even 2.7 release to me not a 3.0 (but not a 2.58 either).

Really?  Maybe I'm reading that wrong but it basically sounds like their just setting up something like these NeoWin forums ... you know "a message board with general discussion, screenshots shared by players," etc.   You could just come to this forum with the PS4 browser and do the same thing other than "the ability to join parties / games".  I guess that's the big feature here but I don't see that as more than a +0.1 version release as opposed to a +1.0 release. (but again, not a +0.01 either).  It really doesn't seem that major to me, like Share Play was.

I thought that is pretty big IMO. Bigger than a .1 release.

Ok, I'll just chalk that up to being an older gamer who doesn't care one bit about social gaming (I never play games with people I don't know in real life) and take your word that this is actually something special to those who do.
