Features That You May Have Missed From the PS4 Firmware Update

Max Level: After playing around with the PS4 for awhile ensuing the update that released this morning, I’ve found some things that Sony did not mention in the PlayStation Blog post describing the update. There is a collection of minute changes that one may easily miss while being awed by the biggest feature of the update, SHAREfactory.

Let’s take a look at the changes that I have found so far.

One thing i really want is the ability to share my screenshots directly to the 'What's New page', instead of having to link with Facebook or Twitter first.

Someone needs to tweet Yoshida about that, lol.

Also, a dedicated YouTube app would be nice with the ability to send clips made with ShareFactory (which is awesome, btw) straight to it.

Edit: Damn, i misread the article title. I thought it said " Features that were missed from the PS4 firmware update". My bad.

A youtube app that incorporates a section for user made videos uploaded from the PS4 to youtube would be awesome.

the feature you mentioned doesnt relly appl to me all my facebook settings from PS4 are set To "Only Me" so only i can see it on my facebook.. so when i share it goes straight to my Whats New on PS4

GarrusVakarian1661d ago (Edited 1661d ago )

Yeah, but in order for other people to see it on the 'What's New' page, they have to have you added on Facebook too i believe. I don't think it's possible to just share it to the 'What's New' and have it available for everyone to see without Facebook.

I think the best YouTube app so far is the PS Vita version. Would be awesome for the PS4. I don't really like the PS3 Youtube app it's a mess.

can i view pics from my camera like i use view them on my ps3?

Anyone else who tested the SHAREfactory figure out how to fade music? Or is it just not in there? I had to do a pseudo fade but splitting several points and dropping the audio on each one. Wondering if there is something I'm missing.

Anyway most of these features I didn't miss. I didn't know about the "liked you activity" notification though. The launching of apps is awesome. However, some don't work like WWE. Haven't worked for me so far at least.

My test:

Great video man its amazing for first try

Moe-Gunz1661d ago

Thanks. I definitely see them adding "premium" effects and transition packs. Overall very simple and effective program. Darn lack of audio fading is annoying though.

HotFuzz1011661d ago

Yeah, that’s essentially how you do it — or cover it up with a transition.

Moe-Gunz1661d ago

Hopefully they add fading. Splitting actually adds to the total clip count which has a limit. Guess we'll just have to work around it for now.

Freddy_Millz11661d ago

Gave you a view, a like and a comment. Good job bro.

Moe-Gunz1661d ago

Truly appreciate it bro. Thanks.

MisfitsInc1661d ago

thanks for listening, Sony

Nice article! Been playing around with ShareFactory for a bit. It's a very powerful tool. And I like the fact that you can now save your captures to a USB device.

Moe-Gunz1661d ago

I agree man Do you also get the feeling that "premium" effects and transition packs will be making its way to the PSN store?

Gore-Content1661d ago

Yea, but probably not any time soon. I mean, there aren't even avatars available for sale for the PS4.
