On the eve of inFAMOUS Second Son releasing in stores worldwide, Sony has announced details for it’s next major system update similar to what Microsoft did on the eve of their major exclusive title, Titanfall. After listening to player feedback and in an effort to further improve the console as a whole, Sony is planning on addressing some of the biggest things about the PlayStation 4.
So what are some of the improvements and enhancements players can look forward to?
The biggest updates are coming to the “Share” feature with the system. A video editor will be put into place allowing users to personalize and edit your captured gameplay similarly to what the Xbox One has with it’s Upload Studio program. In addition, you’ll also now be able to export gameplay clips and screenshots you’ve captured to a USB drive making it easier to move those media items where you need them.
In a move that will surely make PlayStation fans happy, this update will also add an HDCP off option which will give players the option to record via HDMI.
“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,” a post on the PlayStation Blog explains. “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.”
Also, for those of you wondering, Sony does have additional plans to add the ability to archive Twitch streams and increase the resolution in a separate update just like Microsoft.
While no release date has been set, Sony has announced that this update will be releasing soon. With Second Son releasing tomorrow, I don’t think we’ll be waiting long for this update to hit.
