PS4 update 1.70 coming soon, adds video editor app SHAREfactory

Posted on April 17, 2014 AT 02:30am

PlayStation 4′s next update, 1.70, is “coming soon,” according to Sony. The update will introduce a new video editor app called SHAREfactory, the ability to export files to USB, and an option to pre-download pre-ordered games.

“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,” Scott McCarthy, Director, Product Planning & Software Innovation, SCEA, wrote on the PlayStation Blog. ”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.”

As well as this rich new editor, update 1.70 allows users to export their saved screenshots and videos to a USB drive. Other Share improvements include the ability to record shorter gameplay videos, the ability to select who you share videos with, and the option to turn off HDCP.

Finally, the update adds the ability to pre-downloaded pre-ordered games “up to several days prior to release.”

“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,” McCarthy added. “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.”

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
