PlayStation 4 Update To Bring Enhancements To “Share” Feature

By Ishaan . March 19, 2014 . 9:28am

The PlayStation 4 is getting a system update that will add new features to the device sometime in the near future. Sony say that the update will be based on feedback from PS4 owners, and will include some of the “most-requested” features they’ve seen.


“This upcoming update will add a rich video editor with a simple tool to personalize your video clips, and you’ll also be able to export to and save the videos and screenshots you create by pressing the Share button to a USB drive,” Sony shared via the PS Blog.


“In addition, this update will add an HDCP off option for capturing gameplay via HDMI, a feature we’ve previously said would come after launch. We recognize that some gamers want to record and share longer clips of their gameplay sessions, and we’re excited to deliver this option with PS4. There’s a lot more coming in this update as well, so stay tuned for more—there will be plenty in the update to excite everyone.”


Additionally, a separate update in the future will add the ability for Twitch broadcasts to be archived. These broadcasts will also be provided with a 720p resolution.

    Yay! Now all we need is the ability to use our USB devices to listen to our MP3s in-game.

  • eilegz

    excelent news, waiting for more features and parity with Ps3 media capabilities.

  • Mizurachi

    That sounds great! All that needs to happen now is to have the ability to track one of these down! Also different themes couldn’t hurt.

  • I want an update that let’s me choose my own desktop background.

    • Testsubject909

      That’d be nice…

      Or upload videos to your PS4 HDD and view those there. Like how we could do so on the PS3.

    Great, I know Achievement Hunter has been crying about the HDCP thing for a while now lol

  • fairysun

    Lol nice.

    Will this fix the issue with not being able to upload to Facebook as it mentions it’s not a video? Though I think I need to configure that a bit to fix it.

    Looking forward to this feature.
