A few days ago Firmware Update 1.70 was announced for the PS4, bringing with it HDCP off and Sharefactory. Now PlayStation Japan has released a video to show the new features in action, and even though it is in Japanese it’s pretty easy to follow. It’s broken down into showing just how Sharefactory works, as well as the way to transfer content from the PS4 to other storage media, and also the Vita TV remote play functionality.
We already know that Sharefactory will allow users to edit gameplay videos, and this demonstration shows how you’ll be able to that including placing images on the footage, slowing it down, and sound editing too. It looks like it could be a fun, and useful, tool to play around with with the possibilities of pinpointing locations of collectables and how to beat levels.
We’re also shown how simple it will be to transfer images and video to a USB storage device, as it looks like all you do is plug it in, go to the Captures folder, select want you want to move, and then confirm it. Of course the speed at which the data will be transferred will depend on the size of the file. The video also shows the Vita TV remote play, which looks exactly like the process used by the regular Vita. Since the Vita TV has still not be confirmed for a release outside Japan, this is more of an extra we won’t be able to use. At least not yet.
