SHAREfactory and More Coming in Next PS4 Update

Sony has taken their time but it looks like their latest firmware update will be a damn good one!

The 1.70 update will enable SHAREfactory, our new rich video editor app for PS4 that makes it easy for you to customize your gameplay videos:

With SHAREfactory, you can now easily combine your captured video clips for editing, personalize them with special effects using filters, transitions, and themes, as well as share them with your friends and social networks. SHAREfactory also allows you to personalize your videos by adding text, stickers, and a set of included audio tracks, as well as video commentary with picture-in-picture capability with PlayStation Camera. It also allows you to import your original music to add to the custom soundtrack for your video.

Take Your Share Anywhere


Once you’re done with your masterpiece, you can easily share your SHAREfactory videos to Facebook, or export them to an external USB storage device to upload them elsewhere, another new feature coming as part of the 1.70 system software update. Other PS4 SHARE enhancements include the ability to change the recording time of your gameplay to shorter increments, the ability to change who you share your clips with on the SHARE screen, and the removal of default saves for screenshots and video clips. In addition to these SHARE enhancements, the 1.70 update will allow you switch off HDCP, enabling you to capture video directly from your HDMI output so you can record and share longer clips of your gameplay sessions — a feature I know many of you have been waiting for. We are excited to see what the PlayStation Nation does with these new social features, and cannot wait to get them into your hands!

Play as Soon as the Game is Released


Providing you with immediate access to your games is a priority designed into PS4, and something we will always strive to make better. We’ve had a great response from PS4 fans about the Play as You Download feature, the snappy load times when launching and playing games, and the general speed and responsiveness of the UI. The 1.70 update adds features to build on this idea and make it faster to play the games you pre-order with an auto pre-download capability, which allows you to pre-download your select pre-ordered game up to several days prior to release. If you have the auto-download feature enabled, it will automatically pre-download your pre-ordered game so you can play as soon as the game is unlocked on release day.

As I mentioned earlier, some of these features were a direct result of the great feedback we’ve been getting from you, our dedicated gamer community. We enjoy listening to your comments, and encourage you to continue sharing your thoughts with us. And this is just the beginning. We’ve got a lot more coming in PS4 system software update v1.70 and beyond. The PS4 experience will constantly evolve, and new innovative ideas can come from anywhere to ensure the platform continues to deliver the best in gaming and entertainment every time you turn it on.

These are just some of the new features coming in 1.70.Already confirmed is 720p streaming to Twitch and Ustream, as well as stream archiving. 

Silent Hill Shattered Memories and Origins coming to Vita
Konami has announced that soon Vita owners will be able to get a little bit of horror on the go. Available for £7.99 each, although it isn’t clear whether the two games are simply ports of the existing PSP versions or enhanced versions specifically created for PS Vita; we’ll find out soon enough.

PlayStation 4 Sales Surpass 7.0 Million Units Worldwide
Congrats to Sony on what is a hell of an achievement so early in this new console cycle. Sony has announced that  PS4 hardware has cumulatively sold through more than 7 million units worldwide as of April 6th, 2014. E3 is just around the corner, here’s hoping that they have a stellar software line-up waiting in the wings. You can bet that Microsoft is hard at work with their show as well.

Remember Bloodrayne?
Certainly Majesco and Arc System Works hopes you do, because they’re teasing a new Bloodrayne title. Personally speaking, I’ve always gotten a kick out them. Much like late night B or even C list horror movies, Bloodrayne games are a nice palette cleanser; they keep things interesting before enjoying a meatier AAA experience. That and I love vampires with big boobs.

inFamous Second Son is Getting a Huge Patch

Sucker Punch is continuing to grow Second Son with features that the community have asked for. Perhaps the most useful is this sweet new Photo Mode. The Second Son patch will hit PSN tomorrow. Below are some of the features in the patch. 

  • A handful of localization text changes, and a couple of fixes for rare crashes in the game (Thanks to all of you who uploaded reports on those, they were extremely helpful!).
  • 30FPS Cap.
  • If your controller runs out of batteries in the middle of gameplay, your game will pause. Our art director pulled a hamstring scrambling to get his second controller mid-boss-battle, so we needed to fix this.
  • If you’re choosing expert difficulty, we let you know within the options dialog if you’re qualified for the “Unstoppable” trophy the moment you opt in.
  • Photo Mode.
