the thing is this is what Sony should be doing,they have an amazing photo mode in many games and obcviously the screen shot mode yet on ps4 i can only get the 5 crap ones available in uk.

I was unsure how do do this earlier and i watched a video and one guy was saying if you get an achievement you can set that as your background if you want really?.

Tried it and it works. Every achievement for any game you get a picture with it, awesome update if you ask me.

Sony has awesome themes and custom background already. A man is sure they'll let you use photos for backgrounds in a future update but not a big deal. Having shareplay is incomparable to putting a photo in the background tbh.

Yetter1535d ago

a future update next year in November?

Jaqen_Hghar1535d ago

A man honestly wouldn't even notice lol

Now of course a man would expect it before then and hopes it's there for all those who do value it but he just cares more about gaming features like shareplay than stuff like backgrounds.

@Jaqen_Hghar ,

What the heck does this have to do with Sony, PS4 or shareplay? Don't tell me you are another troll that leech on any good xbox news with the usual Sony popaganda. We already have too many of those people here. But I have a feeling you will be back. LOL

Just checked, i still haven't received any update here in the UK.

I am not subscribing to gold, would that make a difference.

They do it in waves and make sure it didn't auto do it while idle.

SideNote1535d ago

Check your console settings update. I had too.

hello win8/ windows phone lol

how do people find that ui so great?? my laptop reverts back to desktop mode and im going nowhere near a windows phones (same goes for many other phone users lool)

hell the Theme is hidden behind all the tiles lol

when it comes to software i think google an iso are kicking there arse lol

Immorals1535d ago

I hated it on my pc, yet it's great with a console. Even better with kinect (laziness catered for!)

Dgander1535d ago

Forget how it looks, if you ever get a chance to try it out yourself you will understand. The live tiles work great with achievments, friend list, media and snap features.
Xbox One UI > PS4 UI but its Microsoft and they specialize in software so it only makes sense.

Kane221535d ago

the ps4 UI is fine. its nothing special just like the xbox one. i get on the systems to play games not look at the UI which apparently some of you guys rather do....

captain_slow821535d ago

i have tried it win8/360/phone and im honest here its not worked out for me and the same goes for millions of users

Dgander1535d ago

@Kane22 I never said the PS4 UI sucked, its just not better than Xbox One UI. I was just stating the obvious that its better and Microsoft used it to its advantage with their features. Microsoft's bread and butter is software and Operating Systems so it makes sense why the Xbox One UI is so good.

smellslikeralph1535d ago

I have windows 8.1 on my pc and i hate the ui but its different on my tablet and x1. The ui was not designed with pc in mind but works amazingly on tablets and or x1 imo

Bigpappy1535d ago

Too bad. Win Phone8 is actually a lot cleaner, faster and more secure than android. I had a Droid and now have a Nokia Lumina 1020. Everything about the phone and interface oozes quality. It is so must faster and live tiles are very handy and informative. Updates are handled much better. With Android, I always felt like I was being spammed.

Another awesome, and very welcomed update...

Its incredible how fanboys cant accept the obvious. Xbox one ui and features > ps4 ui and features. It is what it is, not what you want it to be.
