In a post on the PlayStation Blog, Sony detailed the latest large update for the PlayStation 4, which will bring about some updates that fans have been clamoring for since launch.
Firstly, the update will remove the HDCP, which will allow game clips to be recorded externally via HDMI. This will allow the recording of clips longer than the limit that the Share function on the console has. In addition, the update will add a “rich video editor”, which can be used to personalize game clips and screenshots. These can then be saved to a USB drive. Sony also promises that there will be much more coming with this update that has not yet been announced.
In a later system update, Sony says that there will be archiving of streams on Twitch, as well as a higher resolution of 720p on both Twitch and UStream when games are streamed directly from the PlayStation 4.
This update will come in “the upcoming weeks”. We will let you know of any more announced details for the update as well as a release date.
