Find out what your latest system update can do for you.
Sony’s latest firmware update for the PlayStation 4, system update 1.70, has finally gone live. The update itself is separate from SHAREfactory, with the former weighing 194 MB while the latter requires an additional 972 MB (according to NeoGAF). Screenshots have also emerged, detailing the changes [Thanks, Redditor MrSazperilla]. Check them out below.
SHAREfactory allows you to customize PS4 footage and edit it together with custom effects and commentary. You can also add your own songs and audio tracks by importing the same through a USB device, after which videos can be shared on Facebook or exported separately.
Other updates including being able to download pre-ordered games several days before they’re released so you can experience the same on launch day. HDCP has also been disabled so if you’re a fan of capturing footage through HDMI on a computer, then you’re now able to do so. If you want to export gameplay from the PS4 directly, you can now use the Share button and save footage on a USB drive. Live Broadcasts have also been modified to allow for live-streaming in 720p HD and you can now archive broadcasts on Twitch and UStream.
That’s only a smidgeon of the changes introduced. The update is currently live in the US – you can get all the details here.
