Share Factory Comes to PS4
Posted by Mark
With the release of the new 1.70 firmware update on PlayStation 4, comes the new video editing suite, SHAREfactory. This allows you to take your saved game-play clips and edit them, add transitions, combine clips, add commentary or music, even add themes based on game titles. It really adds a new level to sharing experience of Sony's new flagship console. Here is a introduction to SHAREfactory and how it all works.
Also, update 1.70 brings lots of other new features as well including Automatic pre-download of select pre-ordered games from PlayStation Store. This means your system will automatically download select pre-order games up to several days in advance of the release, so that it’s ready to play as soon as the game is released on launch day. There’s also a countdown timer prior to the release of the game so you’ll know how soon your game will be available for you to start playing.
Twitch broadcasting in HD. The resolution for live broadcasts has been increased to 720p HD. Also you can now archive your broadcasts on Twitch or Ustream and watch them again later.
New light bar settings have been added for DUALSHOCK 4, allowing you to change it to Bright, Medium or Dim in the Settings menu. The touchpad has also been updated, allowing you to navigate the on-screen keyboard using the DUALSHOCK 4 touchpad.
There are loads more improvements and features in this update that are waiting to be discovered.
