Upcoming PS4 Firmware Update Brings Video Editing

Sony has revealed some details as to what the future of the PlayStation 4 holds. An upcoming firmware update should be a crowd pleaser, at least for those who enjoy sharing and recording gameplay footage on both the Twitch service or by other means.

Gamers can expect a video editor to be present where you can personally dive into editing your video in order to swift through the different gameplay clips. There’s even the ability to save and export your work right on a USB drive that is connected to the console. Though if you’ve been waiting to record gameplay by capturing it from the HDMI port, that is now available as Sony will allow gamers to disable HDCP, a feature that Sony previously talked about during their PS4 press conference at E3 of last year.

This upcoming update will add a rich video editor with a simple tool to personalize your video clips, and you’ll also be able to export to and save the videos and screenshots you create by pressing the SHARE button to a USB drive. In addition, this update will add an HDCP off option for capturing gameplay via HDMI, a feature we’ve previously said would come after launch.

We recognize that some gamers want to record and share longer clips of their gameplay sessions, and we’re excited to deliver this option with PS4. There’s a lot more coming in this update as well, so stay tuned for more — there will be plenty in the update to excite everyone.
