I did rough translation.

Lock if old

- "Event" menu is added that allows you to find events related to Playstation, join them and watch them.
- "Community" is added to "friend" menu that allows you to make new community or join existing ones.
- "Now Playing" is added to "friend", "community", "message" and profile screen that allows you to display games members are currently playing. You can request to join their games or
request to broadcast the game.
- "Message" function has been improved that it displays "now playing" and allows you to start party easily. You can add groups to your favorite list
- You can broadcast via Youtube
- You can upload short (10 sec) game clips to twitter.

Also there's a mention about creating sub account for kids, parental controls and such.

Will we know when a friend becomes online? lol I still can't believe they didn't fix it, it's so basic, it should have been the first thing they do after launch, I'm seriously amazed by this.

Friends notifications and the ability to turn off party notifications. I don't know how they went an entire gen having friends notifications (even for going offline) for a system that was nigh useless in actually playing with friends and then they go the opposite way.

Perhaps, if the stars align and swamp king Dhormamo receives the 12 blessings from the god-kings of the East, firmware 3.0 would allow me to change my goddamn avatar?

Perhaps...

Community(possibly a miiverse-like thing) and Youtube Broadcasting sounds good, but this doesn't seem like a 3.0 update at all :/

Sounds like we'll be able to create a Neogaf community where you can join, talk and see what people are playing without them being on your friends list? I hope that's right.
