Added to the PlayStation 4’s home screen with firmware update 3.00, the Events app “lets you join players in the latest online multiplayer challenges and tournaments, and invites you to tune in to special gameplay broadcasts,” PlayStation Europe explained.

In the patch notes for update 3.00, the Events app is described as a place where “all events associated with PlayStation are now brought together, enabling you to discover, participate, and watch these events in a centralized area.”

You can learn more about the Events app at 2:45 of the above video from Access PlayStation.

Here’s some of the Events going on:
