The update is "coming soon"
You know the PlayStation 4 Update 1.70 release date is nearing when Sony starts to leak the details -- and today, it has done just that.
According to the
, PS4 system software update (v1.70) doesn't have an exact release date yet, but it's "coming soon." In the meantime, Sony offered up a major part of the update: SHAREfactory.
SHAREfactory is a video editor app for PS4 that allows gamers to customize gameplay videos. More specifically, they can use special effects like filters, transitions, and themes, and then share them with friends and social networks.
The gameplay videos can be further customized by adding text, stickers, included audio tracks (as well as your own original music, which can be imported), and video commentary with picture-in-picture capability with PlayStation Camera.
SHAREfactory is a social-heavy feature, so it puts a lot of focus on sharing (hence the name). SHAREfactory videos can be shared to Facebook exported to an external USB storage device to be uploaded elsewhere.
Other notable SHAREfactory features include the ability to change the recording time of your gameplay to shorter increments, the removal of default saves for screenshots and video clips, the ability to change who you share your clips with on the SHARE screen, and the ability to switch off HDCP -- enabling you to capture video directly from your HDMI output.
Aside from SHAREfactory, Sony is also offering a pre-download feature with the new update, which will allow gamers to automatically pre-download a pre-ordered game so that they can play as soon as the game is unlocked on release day.

Seriously, I'm still waiting for my PS4 to catch up with my PS3 for movie playback, and 3D features.

Both are superb devices but they are intentionally designed differently to appeal to different customers.
