When the reports regarding an overhauled video editing suite for the PlayStation 4 first dropped, we weren’t expecting it to offer much. You’re already able to add titles to video clips on the Xbox One, and so we were anticipating something similar on Sony’s next-gen machine. However, when rumours relating to the involvement of the Sony Vegas Pro development team started to circulate, our expectations rose.
Now that it’s announced, though, the application – named SHAREfactory – appears to be much more than we ever predicted. For those of you that missed the reveal, the add-on – available as part of firmware update v1.70 – will allow you to stick clips together, record audio and video commentaries, implement effects, and much more. And the reveal trailer has left us pondering whether it’s going to become something of a secret cash cow for the platform holder moving forwards.
