Sony has announced the upcoming massive PS4 Update 1.70 will be arriving in Europe on April 30. A tweet from the company announced that the update, which includes both the SHAREfactory and option to switch HDCP off, will be launching at the end of the month. Presumably North America will be getting it around the same time. In case you missed it, SHAREfactory is a “new rich video editor app for PS4 that makes it easy for you to customize your gameplay videos.”
PlayStation Europe has confirmed on Twitter that the PS4’s long-awaited system update 1.70 will be ferried down Internet pipes and right into your machine next Wednesday, April 30. The update will bring a new app, SHAREfactory, which allows users to perform basic edits on their captured videos and also save them to an external drive, making uploading to YouTube a lot easier. An option to turn HDCP off for games will also allow users to use their own capture devices, such as the Elgato Game Capture HD. The 1.70 update will also bring with it the option to preload games purchased digitally off the PlayStation Store. Sony announced earlier this month that global PlayStation 4 sales are now over seven million.
