Written by: / / 1 Comment

Sony Computer Entertainment has just announced that the next PlayStation 4 firmware update will be available in the coming weeks, adding a simple video editing tool for your Share videos, with the option to turn HDCP off, plus more.


The announcement was made by director of product planning and software innovation and Sony Computer Entertainment America, Scott McCarthy, who says that after sifting through PS4 owners’ comments, suggestions, requests and feedback, the hardware team will be delivering an upcoming firmware update that brings “some of your most-requested features to PS4.” McCarthy wrote:

“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. 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.”

McCarthy says that another firmware update in the future will also allow users to archive their Twitch and Ustream broadcasts, with “a higher resolution of 720p, so PS4 fans can enjoy live broadcasts with clearer images.”

More news on the next PS4 firmware update is expected to drop in the coming weeks.
