Sony has confirmed that the PS4 will be missing 'Share controller' and 'suspend mode' features at launch.
When PS4 was revealed in February this year, Sony spoke of a feature that would allow any member of your PS4 friends list to take control of your gameplay - remotely from another PS4 connected to the internet - to help you through a tough spot in a game.
But Sony has confirmed via an enormous PS4 hardware FAQ today that this feature will not make launch. No ETA was offered, but it's likely the cloud-powered feature could arrive next year, along with Sony's Gaikai-powered cloud game streaming service, which will allow PS4 access to games from older PlayStation systems - a solution to the PS4's current lack of backwards compatibility.
The FAQ also reaffirms the delay of PS4's planned 'Suspend/Resume' mode, which will let players suspend gameplay in a specific state, ready for instant resumption from the exact point it was left upon reactivation.
This is also expected to be added via a system update in 2014.

Sony has confirmed a PS4 launch date of November 15 in US and November 29 in Europe and Latin America.
