PS4 system update 1.70 launches today – full feature list

Plus, new updates for PS Vita and PlayStation App detailed

At PlayStation, we love hearing the great feedback we get from our passionate community of gamers. That’s why I’m excited to announce that our highly-anticipated system software update for PlayStation 4 (v1.70) will be released today, with a huge number of your demanded features, and expanding upon what we believe is the most socially connected console experience.

One feature that I’m most excited about is SHAREfactory, our new rich video editing app. In addition, we’re launching updates for PlayStation Vita (v3.15) and PlayStation App (v1.70) that will deliver greater integration with your PS4 system.

Here’s a rundown of what you can expect with today’s software updates:

PlayStation 4 v1.70 update

SHAREfactory: After you update your PS4 to v1.70, an icon to download our free SHAREfactory app will appear on your PS4 system’s home screen once it’s available. Once installed, SHAREfactory allows you to easily customize your gameplay videos with special effects, video commentary with picture-in-picture capability through PlayStation Camera, and custom soundtracks using the included audio tracks or your original music imported from a USB drive. You can then share your videos on Facebook or export them to an external USB storage device. The app is packed with plenty of cool, but accessible, tools. It’s simple enough to use for beginning editors, while functioning as a rich video editor for those with more creative aspirations. Check out our new SHAREfactory video above that provides a walkthrough of what you can expect:

Automatic pre-download: You’ll soon be able to start downloading select pre-ordered games from PlayStation Store. This new feature allows you to get to your games faster by automatically downloading select pre-ordered games up to several days in advance of the release, so that it’s ready to play as soon as the game is released on launch day. There’s also a countdown timer prior to the release of the game so you’ll know how soon your game will be available for you to start playing.

Option to disable HDCP for games: This highly requested feature will allow you to have the option to turn off HDCP for games so you can capture longer gameplay sessions directly from your HDMI output and export them elsewhere.

USB export option for captured gameplay: It’s now even easier to show off your heroic gaming moments and the SHAREfactory videos you create with the world using this feature to export your videos and screenshots to a USB drive. Just click on the DUALSHOCK 4 SHARE button, save your gameplay on a USB drive, and then share your proudest achievements on other social networks and other video platforms.

Live broadcasting in HD and archiving support: We’ve increased the resolution for live broadcasts so you and your friends can watch games livestreamed in 720p HD. You can also archive your broadcasts on Twitch or Ustream and watch them again later.

New SHARE options: We’ve got a number of new SHARE settings that will give you better control of what you want to share with your friends. Here is what you can look forward to:

  • Change the default gameplay recording time in the SHARE menu under Video Clip Settings.
  • Save only the video clips and screenshots you want by selecting Upload Screenshots or Upload Video Clips for each capture. Also upload video clips and screenshots during your live gameplay broadcasts.
  • Select specific Facebook audiences to share each video or screenshot with.

New DUALSHOCK 4 options: New light bar settings have been added for DUALSHOCK 4, allowing you to change it to Bright, Medium or Dim in the Settings menu. The touchpad has also been updated, allowing you to navigate the on-screen keyboard using the DUALSHOCK 4 touchpad.

New Friends options: It’s now easier to find Friends and send requests with the ability to search Friends-of-Friends, view Mutual Friends on another user’s profile, and accept Friend requests directly from the Friends list.

New Trophies sort option: You can now sort Trophies by rarity in the Options menu.

PlayStation Store payment support: Similar to PS3, we’re introducing Alternative Payment Methods (APMs) for PS4 for content purchased on PS Store, starting with PayPal support.

More PlayStation Camera commands: More voice commands are added to PlayStation Camera, allowing you to launch the apps installed on your PS4 with the sound of your voice.

New PlayStation Plus icon: For Plus members, you’ll now have the PS Plus icon appear next to your SEN ID on the login screen, home screen and other areas across the PS4 system’s sleek user interface.

Music Unlimited SHARE options: With a Music Unlimited subscription, you can easily share your favorite songs with your friends by pressing the SHARE button on your DUALSHOCK 4.

PlayStation Vita v3.15 update

PS4 Link update for Remote Play: Linking your PS4 and PS Vita together will now be easier with the 3.15 update for PS Vita. It’ll enable Automatic Device Registration, which will automatically detect and pair both systems when they’re both online and the same user is signed in to both devices. This makes it even quicker for you to get started on Remote Play or access other second screen features.

PlayStation App v1.70 Update

Push notifications, friend requests and more: This new PlayStation app update will give you the option to receive Push Notifications for select PS4 updates you want to receive, such as gameplay Invitations, Game Alerts or Friend Requests. You can also receive Friend Requests via email or text messages with the app update. Also, it’s now easier to change your profile picture right from your mobile device by uploading an image from your photo library, or taking a photo using your in-device camera.

We can’t wait until the software updates are released so you can start enjoying all of these great features. In particular, I look forward to seeing your SHAREfactory videos and seeing all the creative ways you can make your gameplay moments memorable.

Let’s keep the conversation going – we love getting feedback from you and seeing what else we can come up with to continue making PlayStation 4 the best place to play. Please let us know and we’ll continue to always serve up great content and features to you – the gamer.

Thank you very much to your Software Engineers and everyone else involved for all the firmware updates so far!

But, please, give us multiple account support on PS Vita :(

loadstone007s 30 April, 2014 @ 08:10
1.1

Yes, multiple account support is very much desired by all Vita owners. Please make it happen.

1.2

Another fan of multiple account support… please make it happen!!!

multiple accounts and DualShock 4 Support for PS VITA

Please make it happen!

can we have a pause downloads feature or atleast limit it to 1 item downloading?

Download pausing is the only useful option I actually need.

The rest is nice although some I saw no one request and I think effort could have gone in those most requested because they make life easier (like deleting trophies, sorting download lists, streaming media and more).

2.2

This is much desired, having no control on downloads really makes it inconvenient when you just want to download your game and play it as soon as possible.

Also, themes please! :)

Nice update, but the PS4 still lacks some major features.

Xeneise_gonza 30 April, 2014 @ 15:50
3.1

3D Blu-ray support is very important. I have a PS3, but I’m sure a lot of people bought the PS4 thinking they would be able to play 3D movies.

3.2

yup like when friends appear online/offline

Rigor666Mortis 01 May, 2014 @ 22:20
3.3

Yeah the 3d option need to come soon. Otherwise I love my PS4.

Thank you from me too, any idea what time we can expect it? Should I go to bed, or wait up patiently?

Great update but the thing we really need is local backward capability, i mean play PS1, PS2 &PS3 discs on PS4…

5.1

PS3 native backwards compatibility is literally impossible. The hardware is too complex for the PS4 to emulate.

5.2

Vashettii believe in sony’s engineers that they can make an emulator for PS3 games, the same way they did on ps3 launch model for PS2 games.

5.3

yaacov2606, launch PS3 models had hardware-based emulation. The PS2 CPU (Emotion Engine) was included in every PS3 to allow PS2 games to run.

The PS4 does not include any PS3 hardware, and software emulation of the PS3 architecture is just not physically possible. PlayStation Now is the best you’re going to get.

Now, regarding PS1 and PS2 software emulation on PS4, I have a feeling if we all ask nicely it might just happen… ;)

One step closer in having music played from a usb device :D

Have to admit i was hoping for friend notifications (faves only) but pretty damn substantial update

Great progress. Thanks guys. One question though. Did you guys manage to fix game recording not the last 15 minutes but sometimes 1 hour or 2 hours earlier footage? This happenes a lot in BF4 and happened to me twice with Killzone.

this happened to me in KZ every time i tried to used the share feature. something epic would happen, and i’d get stuck with gameplay from f#$k knows when.

8.2

THIS. this always happens to me! Picture the scene. Dead nation final level. Morbid. My co-op partner dead. I’ve used literally everything I have so i’m left with the rifle to get through the final area with all the army guys. I do it. Raise arms triumphantly in the air. YES!!! Hit the share button and its some boring bit from like 2 hours ago. What the hell?! every damn time!

8.3

Same here. Did you fix it guys?
I failed to capture ma 1100+ meters headshot in BF4 :/

Are you seriously saying that we still don’t get notifications when our friends sign in and out?
And we still can’t use the basic sorting options that we had on PS3?
Come on… It’s been 5 months with the PS4 now, how hard is it to patch in those features?

Was thinking exact same thing myself mate. Friends signing on a a huge deal coz having to always check during gaming is very annoying.

exactly! who are sony listening to? Some of the most simplest things are the things we want…

anyways glad we have a update with new things, cant be complaining about that.

yep. apparently, removing HDCP is a priority. it probably affects less than 1% of the base. but, youtubers have a loud voice and get their demands met first.
regular gamers don’t care about HDCP. it doesn’t affect us at all.

Thanks guys, keep up the great work. Once the media streaming options similar to what PS3 enjoys just now are added the PS4 , my PS4 will rightfully claim its place in my living room.

Nice update, not as may features as I thought I’d see in this list as I thought you were meant to have something more hidden, but this is a great update none the less :)

Hopefully this lays the groundwork for own music playback/dlna and a native YouTube app.

Also hope that the Vita gets a little more love before it become insignificant. Perhaps a lovely PS4-esk UI update? ;-P

11.1

Now its time for:

– native YouTube app
– TuneIn app
– DLNA support on (PS4 and PS Vita)

12

The App update is great, so much easier to communicate with friends.

dark_angel69 30 April, 2014 @ 00:20
13

Great update. Will download it in the morning. What’s the new camera commands? Is it just launching apps or is there more than that?

14

trophies should be able to be sorted by when you earned them! That is much more useful than rarity

14.1

Or by name (alphabetically)

Xeneise_gonza 30 April, 2014 @ 15:53
14.2

Or divided by platform. Many of us have earned trophies on PS3, Vita and PS4.

GSREvolution 30 April, 2014 @ 00:22
15

Thanks for the update, happy with the progress and updates so far, now I just hope that the vita gets a similar interface the new UI on the PS4 makes it look ancient.

PanasonicRock 30 April, 2014 @ 00:24

One little thing annoys me with the PS4. The notification section seems to display all these things like last trophy earned, friends added, messages received e.t.c. But you can’t delete them. They just hang there even after you have actually viewed the trophy won, deleted the message that had been received or added the friend that had requested. So now I have out of date notifications from February that don’t even link to anything.

Will we have the ability to delete these soon like we can with the whats new section for played game notifications. Like I say it’s only small thing in the grand scheme of requests from 7 million users, but it seems there are many little problems like this. Such as being able to sort the games on the UI, better trophy sorting, and mentioned previously in another post, the friend notifications when they sign in and out. Simple things that could be fixed quite easily.

16.1

Hear hear! You an remove invites / etc by clicking options and delete but their are some notifications you can’t remove at all.

17

Will we be able to listen to music from a USB device now? Or only in a video in sharefactory?

PanasonicRock 30 April, 2014 @ 00:28
17.1

I have a horrible feeling it will be only for the purpose of share factory, and that actually playing music on the PS4 may come in the next update, with the rumoured music player. Let’s hope it’s not another 5 months to wait I guess.

This is brilliant. But please bring back media playback, Give us a media playback app or something. Video playback is more important.

At the very least increase the number of different codecs the browser can handle if you don’t want to give us standalone a media playback app. Give us flash, AVI, DIVX, MPEG, MKV support.

MP4 playback already works beautifully through the browser. But ultimately I wish to playback the videos and mp3/flac I have on my hard drive.

If media playback is brought back i can finally retire my PS3. PS4 will become the ultimate games and media machine.

[General point i want to make regarding PlayStation marketing:

YouTube compression is awful and destroys the details and fidelity of the trailers and content uploaded by the marketing team. So upload uncompressed or atleast high bitrate [16Mbps] HD video to VIMEO [classy version of youtube, doesn’t heavily compress video] or Gamersyde[enthusiast site that prides itself on providing uncompressed videos, via bit ...

18.1

and CD playback as well as import feature

19

I hope one day we can pay to change our PSN IDs.

19.1

Forget that dude, I just want to grow up.. that’s all I ever wanted…. lols
I know its wrong to pay for changing PSN ID as I know its wrong to Pay for Changing from a Child Account to Master Account..

The I want to PAY to have my Secondary Account changed to Master Account. So I can properly use the share button.

Please let me do this.
I was a Kid when I started this PlayStation I’m a Adult Now! =P

19.2

I hope one day it will be possible to change account’s region.

Awesome update guys, thanks so much.

ShovelFighter_89 30 April, 2014 @ 00:35

Trophy sort options from ps3 and the abilty to sort by platform PS3, 4 & Vita a thumbnail view option would be nice also (hate lists), friend notifications, prioritise downloads, video and music file support from ps3, option to hide downloaded games off the homescreen (hate all the apps shuffling), youtube and twitch app…Update to the browser less of the ‘ missing plugin’ or PS4 not supported……Fantastic Update guys!! SHAREfactory looks amazing! But with all the hype surrounding this update i was hoping for at least half these things.. Sorry to be that guy but…..

Bgjknpqswvyu 30 April, 2014 @ 00:39

Thank you for bringing us this meaty update Sony. A couple of suggestions for future updates if I may? 1. Being able to sort game & apps into folders, the UI is starting to get cluttered now and it will only get worse in future. 2. An option to upload videos straight to Youtube, also I think Instantgram should be one of the options to SHARE photos. And finally 3. A dedicated Twitch & UStream app, there’s various people who’s streams I would love to watch but because there mostly PCs I ain’t able to seach for them. Also I think with E3 coming soon, publishers may broadcast their conferences on these sites so it would be wonderful for who can’t go to be able watch all the going ons at E3 & Gamescom too.

Julzillamilitia 30 April, 2014 @ 01:22
22.1

you can watch full twitch via the PS4 browser, works perfectly.

PanasonicRock 30 April, 2014 @ 00:40

Wondering if it was a bit optimistic trying a software update on PS4 just now? Sadly it said there was no new software.

Still no friend online status notifications, wow sony! Maybe next time then along with the DLNA support.

Friends notifications please!!! Can’t believe we still don’t have this yet its a huge thing nearly all gamers with friends need

26

So in other words Sony has failed to address the small issue that is, the New Zealand store doesn’t allow for pre-orders making the pre-load feature redundant. Gee thanks Sony! Maybe next time you’ll address that small issue amongst the ridiculous overpriced games in store. Kiwi’s are getting ripped off so badly at present.

Julzillamilitia 30 April, 2014 @ 01:27
26.1

Make a UK account, or a US account [much cheaper games]. top up your wallet by buying psn top up cards from amazon.com [us account] or amazon.co.uk [uk account]. Or other companies that email you the psn card redemption code.

There is no region lock on PS4 or PSN so after purchasing, you can then log in to your NZ account and play with that.

26.2

We always get ripped. it comes with the territory of living in god’s pimple. We payed another $US 120.00 equivilant more than they do in EU/US for our PS4s.Even buying things like Lego sets from Amazon is cheaper even after the postage than getting it here and the Hobbit first movie CE was a whole $US70.00 cheaper from amazon in US than getting it here after postage. Even games cost less for all of them. I want an EU passport.

27

Great update but still lacking video, picture and music support.

27.1

these are all features making me use my PS3 a lot more than I’d hope to be using it. More use = channelling a little more cash into it in the long run, I and so many people like us would be satisfied with video, image and audio playback libraries such as what we had on PS3. Still, looking forward to 720p live streaming and using the video editing, it does the Share button even more justice ^_^

While this is awesome news for my PS4 my PS3 is crying. My storefront is crying. I still can’t browse the classic ps2 section, if it wasn’t for my Vita still being able to browse it, downloaded Grandia today <3, I would probably be a giant beardy man crying as a 2 year old who dropped his ice cream…please tell us anything about the situation Sony :*(

The classic ps1 section that is.

PanasonicRock 30 April, 2014 @ 00:57

I sadly sold my PS3 for my PS4, something I deeply regret. Had I of known 6 months ago the gap I would have to bridge in technology, I certainly would of kept it. I miss 3D playback, CD Playback, MP3 playback, viewing photos, the list goes on.

The PS4 is an incredible machine in my opinion, but I wish I still had the PS3 sitting next to it at the moment. I can’t help but wonder how long it will take Sony to make the PS4 equal, or surpass the PS3.

Can someone confirm that the share bug is fixed or not, in this update? i’m talking about when you hit share after more than 15 minutes of play it’s random what 15 minutes it actually records. Is it even acknowledged by sony that it exists? – because if it’s still there these new share additions seems like a waste really. I would like some clarification as i have stopped using share because of it’s inconsistency (a shame as i love the feature).

29.1

Hoping to get a response here (see link) to this problem soon.
http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PS4-Support/PS4-share-button-saves-the-wrong-footage/td-p/20301275/page/14

Hoping the update will fix it.

Sharefactory sounds good, now I just actually need to be able to share. I don’t use facebook and my laptops USB ports no longer work. Is there any possibility of uploading to Youtube sometime in the future, or do Microsoft have some exclusivity agreement to prevent this from happening? The PS4 has has a very strong start but Microsoft seem to be the only ones listening to their customers at the moment. If this isn’t possible maybe you could let us reassign the share button to something useful.

30.1

So, share is useless because your usb ports on your laptop is broken? riiiiight….

rossthebassist 30 April, 2014 @ 01:03
30.2

Youtube is a google owned property, whilst i know everyone including SONY want youtube to happen for uploaders, its quite obviously more complicated than simply just putting out the application.
The share button is perfectly useful, just because you don’t use social media, and have not looked after your laptop resulting in broken ports don’t
mean its useless.

Julzillamilitia 30 April, 2014 @ 01:29
30.3

Your laptop USB port doesn’t work? You need a new laptop. USB is the most basic input socket of any piece of consumer electronic.

Great update! I have some feature requests:
1. Use the Playstation App as a remote for bluray-movies and internet-browsing (Would be awesome!).
2. The ability to add web-apps to the home-screen (Youtube TV, Headweb etc..).
3. Media Center features (The PS4 has the needed specs).
4. Skype- or Google Hangout-support.
5. More accessibility features (screen reader, zoom etc. Also in games).
6. Improved and faster browser with support for plug-ins.
7. Voice commands in more languages.
8. Improved navigation on PS Store (Right now it is very confusing and difficult to use.)

I have more ideas, but that’s it for now. :)

rossthebassist 30 April, 2014 @ 01:09
31.1

love your list, did you ever see the PS3 store at launch? believe me the PS4 store is a god send lol

My List of wants>

1, Ability to appear offline
2, PSN ID Name Change
3, MP3 Playback within game and on broadcasts.
4, Ability to have my party chat group audiable on my stream
5, Pause Downloads
6, Media Server Support.
7, Only show recently accessed games on the home screen. EVERYTHING appears on it ATM making the Library area useless. Say accessed in the last 7 days.
8, 3D Bluray Support.

My list is more along the tweaks, everything is there it just needs the options.

31.2

great list, i want to add:

9. Webbrower needs smooth zoom-in with R2 and zoom-out with L2
10. full DLNA Support
11. TuneIn App for internet radio
12. local backward compatibility for PS1 and PS2 discs

31.3

are you sure with the plugins for browser? its like it would give more access to hackers and the next thing we will need will be virus scanners why dont you use youre pc or ipad/android tablet/pad for this?
I can agree with the rest specially number 8 TO SLOW by the way on ps4 its not so confusing maybe because ps4 plus is always empty and it confuse you LOL We dont get anything on PS4 with our PLUS Except 1 lousy game or should i say special produced ( BONE FOR DOGS )

Cool update ;) But nothing major i wanted tho really :( Like MP3 playback(+ Photos & Video Playback) and DLNA and Folders and Save gameplay directly to YouTube + a few more. Hopefully we don’t have to wait another 5 months to get them to?

So many updates and still not being able to delete trophies from my trophy list sucks!

33.1

In my opinion, you shouldn’t be able to delete trophies. What you should be able to do is delete trophy lists that are at 0%.

fps_d0minat0r 30 April, 2014 @ 12:00
33.2

@ Andrefpvs
Why not the games which are above 0%, where you think the game is rubbish and never plan on playing it again? It just gets in the way and takes longer for the trophy list to sync and load.
If messages couldnt be deleted, would you also say only the blank ones should be able to be deleted?
It makes no sense.

33.3

@fps_d0minat0r
If you could delete actual trophies, you would be able to doctor your profile. For example, one could delete every trophy list where they weren’t able to achieve 100% completion and BAM — instant gaming legend that has completed every game they have.

Also, I have to note how terrible your analogy was. Seriously.

34

I was hoping we would finally be able to change our gamertags.

Hopefully next time

NutzlastBaer 30 April, 2014 @ 01:23
35

Very poor update.

36

Nice update, but still lacks some features. The maximum players in a party chat is quite low and should be increased up to a minimum of 10 people. Also a message to say whether your friends are online or have gone offline which ps3 and xbox 360 had, where did it go?. Also when inviting people to party chat, its quite annoying that you have to add each person individually then send the invite, when you could just add everyperson at the same time and then send the invite. All these little features are making the ps4 look bad compared to xbox one and I know some people believe they have wasted their money and should’ve bought the xbox due to those little features.

JumPeRJumPzZ 30 April, 2014 @ 04:40
36.1

We dont need a higher player count for the Partys. 8 is enough. But we need a better Audio Codec for Party Chat.
Makes the PS4 looking bad? The Xbone OS is awful and more complicated to use. Inviting people to a Party on the Xbone is not easier lol

UK_Rocklance 30 April, 2014 @ 01:38
37

Thumbs up for the addition of new light bar settings. Now if only the light bar will fade in and out to indicate charging when you are playing a game. It does that, but only when your PS4 is not doing anything. If you are playing a game, there is no indication. I imagine it is done this way so that a game that’s actually using the camera to read the light bar will not be confused, but for games that do not use this feature (ie. 98% of the games), I don’t see why it cannot show charging in progress.

38

Good progress. Now music player suport please.

This is all? Nothing more? 6 months after the PS4 release, we still need to go back to the PS3 if we want DLNA, media playback, and bluray 3D? Shame.

40

Multiple accounts on PS Vita & also The abillity to Copy Video Files From USB to PS4 Console like you can on PS3 already

40.1

Yes, PS4 needs PS Vita support. I hate that Vita Content Manager on my PC.

Chaddy_Summy 30 April, 2014 @ 02:00
41

Still no DLNA? Rubbish

You’re awesome guys, long live PlayStation :D

43

What time is the update coming out

Great update with nice features but the PS4 is still missing many things I’d like to see

1. Ability to change PSN ID’s *(HUGE One for me and probably many others)
2. Add music to the PS4 from a external drive and listen while playing
3. Friends coming online and going offline notifications
4. Notifications for when friends start playing the same game you’re playing
5. Time since a person last signed in (Like the PS3 does)
6. Better management of what’s downloading (Pausing/Stopping current download)
7. Better management of apps/games on the home screen
8. More apps. Youtube, Twitch etc.

That’s what i can currently think of off the top of my head.
Keep up the amazing work guys.

PlayStation Nation!

44.1

1. Being able to change PSN ID would need major DB modification (and serious money), without modification it would totaly destro the database. Not an easy or quick thing to do.

8. That will be down to Youtube and Twitch to right and submit to Sony. It’s not Sony’s fault with this one.

Maniacal_Ginger 30 April, 2014 @ 09:17
44.2

1. Agreed, I made my PSNID a while ago, and I’m starting to dislike it, this ability would be greatly appreciated.
3. Agreed, the PS3 had this feature, why doesn’t the PS4? (This can be said for a lot of this list)

45

Great update, thanks and keep up the good work :-)

46

I can’t wait to see what people are going to use for profile pics! Bet the ban hammer will be getting a dusting off……. Sony, you don’t realise the can of worms you just opened hear. Ha ha!

47

Media playback via USB and wifi please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dlna media support, mate that happen i will make me so happy.

psychobudgie 30 April, 2014 @ 06:10
48.1

Won’t happen. It was something that was advertised on an announcement video for the Vita and 2 years later it still hasn’t appeared on it. There is no way they would go to the effort of integrating their own music service just to undermine it by allowing users to use their own alternatives. Doesn’t matter what is said or implied on social media by them.

48.2

Both, PS Vita and PS4 need DLNA support! Please Sony!

JumPeRJumPzZ 30 April, 2014 @ 04:49
49

I really wanna know who thought at Sony, that people want improvements for the Sharing Things on PS4. I didnt.
I want my BASIC media features back.

Listening to Music from USB or HDD while playing a game or not (Music Unlimited already does that, so its not hard to create a simple app that runs like MU but plays our own MP3s)

BluRay Movie Playback improvements (BluRay movies really boot so slow, there is no thumbnail when a BD Movie is loaded, i had roblems to get Audio from some BluRay Movies so that has to improve)

3D BluRay Support. Cmon Sony, you heavily invested on that and this wasnt a feature from the beginning for the PS4??

DLNA. I still have to use my old loud PS3 for that. I dont get why this wasnt in from the beginning either like 3D BD.

OS Improvements. Let me delete Apps that i dont use (MU,VU, PlayRoom), change how games and Apps get displayed. Do that with categories. Apps, Games, Demos etc

Yes, please, I won’t buy a PS4 until it gets 3D BluRay support.

“I really wanna know who thought at Sony, that people want improvements for the Sharing Things on PS4. I didnt.
I want my BASIC media features back.”

I wanted what this update brought
I don’t want “basic media features”. I have no need of that, never used on PS3 and never will on PS4.
People want different things.

It needs the ps3’s media playback feautures& support for old turtle beach wireless headsets i.e the px3’sbecause at the moment even with the chat cable it still has trouble picking up background audio when playing games this is the same for all the old turtle beach wireless headsets so an update is needed

50.1

my turtle beach px21 work perfect

Support for flash player & basic video & music playback i.e mp4 avi & mp3, mp3 should be playable during a game, ability to change ur psn would be nice even though i probably wouldn’t use it but so many others would , also there should be support for the ps3 wireless headsets i.E turtlebeach.

51.1

Flash is being phased out, HTML5 is the future.

52

I hope there’s been adjustments made to the PSN/facebook app. None of my shared media appears in any of my friend’s ‘What’s New’ feeds, regardless of what privacy settings I select. Adding extra features to the ‘Share’ function is completely useless unless people can actually view the content.

RedMustang72 30 April, 2014 @ 06:08

I don’t think anyone has mentioned it so far, and it’s not a huge priority but is there any chance we will be able to change the theme in the near future? It’s not that the ‘home screen’ is bad but it would be a nice option. External hdd support would be good, along with media playback. I agree with game/app hub customisation options and various friend notification pops would be helpful too, as would a little more control in the notification hub itself…and similarly with the download hub.

Maybe I’ve missed it somewhere but is there any information regarding the Friend Assist function that was talked up before release…where you could view a friends game on your own PS4 and take control of it if given permission? Tbh I’m not sure how much I would use it but it did seem like an interesting idea.

I wouldn’t mind being able to change my PSN ID but I can easily see how that could be nightmarish across the board, for Sony and gamers alike, however I’ll strongly support and sympathise ...

I wouldn’t mind being able to change my PSN ID but I can easily see how that could be nightmarish across the board, for Sony and gamers alike, however I’ll strongly support and sympathise with accounts that were created as subs but are now adult accounts. Sony really need to sort that for people and I really can’t see why they couldn’t upgrade those ID’s to master accounts!

Nice update glad we can finally dim the lightbar but I won’t be happy until I can turn it off.
Also DNLA support! PLEASE!

55

I’m looking forward Sharing via the USB. my facebook friends don’t need to know how much of a mega nerd i am.

I think its about time the store gets sorted out now. When it first launched there wasn’t enough games to have stuff in categories, everything would have looked a bit lonely. Now its a mess in there. Infamous second son listed next to all those zen pinball 2 tables and micro transaction stuff for all the free to play games. Makes browsing a bit of a chore

56

Did I read that right, with the app update I can create a custom avatar? If so then that’s my most wanted feature dealt with.

If someone at SCEE reads this far then please look into the sub account situation. My girlfriend’s account is a sub account of mine, it was created in 2007 when sub accounts were described as the only way to share games with family members and also benefited from a shared e-wallet. Since then all sorts of new features that she would like are not allowed on sub accounts. Can you please either implement an upgrade option so she can go to a full account or at least add option to the master accoubt so that we can lift some of the restrictions. Between being locked out of Facebook and not having access to the share feature she’s never going to get a PS4 of her own.

THIS!!!!
Me too, I made a sub account and now every time I want to add funds, I have to do it through the master account (which is my dads) and every time I buy something from the store, my dad gets e-mails about it too.

But I dont have high hopes. It was one of the most upvoted ideas on blog share posted all the way back in 2010, but they have just continued to ignore it like most other things on blog share. The funny thing is they recently announced they are bringing it back. Lets hope this time they actually listed and react to the ideas which are the most popular.

http://share.blog.us.playstation.com/ideas/2010/03/18/sub-account-promotion/

56.2

Agreed. I’m not affected by this personally, but it just sounds like a terrible situation to be in.

great, i hope it comes out by today and not tomorrow.

YouTube sofware or Flash Player for Internet Browser could be GOOD :)

What time is it going up? I’ve been trying to d/l all day here in AU?

Thanks

Hi, Is there a way to have a Voice control and disable voice chat through the camera as I don’t use chat but enjoyed the voice control.

i dont actually care about any of these updates lol, for me its still 3d blu ray and thats all i want, sorting the desktop into folders and a theme would be nice too….. and all those that want a ps4 update to allow you to change your psn name, thats an account feature so they just need to allow it on site, its not a console feature

62

How about creating some sort of folders to arrange your home screen icons?

My home screen “line” of icons starts to get a bit ridiculously huge….

just an idea :)

Nevertheless keep up the good work.

63

Great, I have it installed on PS4, Vita and Phone already… Its good to see progress! Thanks Sony…
It would be nice if we could get promised suspending feature in next updates….

So I just installed the new update and I immediately went to try SHAREfactory and it’s not on my home screen. I searched a bit for it then came on here to have a look at the post again.

“SHAREfactory: After you update your PS4 to v1.70, an icon to download our free SHAREfactory app will appear on your PS4 system’s home screen once it’s available.”

Once it’s available. When will it be available?

64.1

Ahh never mind I found it on the PlayStation Store after a bit of a search. I assume in the next day or so the icon would have automatically shown up in the TV + Video section with a button to download or something. Anyway I’ve got it downloading now. 971mb :) Can’t wait to play with it!

Does the PS Vita Update patch the “Cannot login to PS4” error on Remote Play?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCrCFmOtuF4

66

It’s very sad that all this stuff is prioritised over MP3 playback and DNLA/streaming, which Sony promised us they would be working before launch.

67

Any news regarding this update and the main problem on ps4, ce-34878-0 Error !?!?!?

Will this problem (ce-34878-0 Error) going to be fixed?
Is Sony working on ce-34878-0 Error to solve this?
Any news? anything that will help….?

When are we going to get a Download List ypgrade? filters and search options ?

69

Thank you a lot for this update. I think that after exporting videos to USB, we will soon “import” videos to PS4 so we can watch movies from it directly from USB…

Maniacal_Ginger 30 April, 2014 @ 09:09

You’ve finally delivered on requested options/features! This is great and gives me even more hope for the future of the PS4.
The next thing I would like to see is more Apps.

71

Still no possibility to play audio CDs!!!?? I know it’s old-school but a basic feature for every device with a CD/DVD/BR drive!

So does this mean we can now use PayPal on the NZ store?

Is that all you guys added to the update???? Where is our 3D support for 3d bluerays and why arent we playing 3d games on ps4 still? And it says on the ps4 package that it supports 3D i could call this fraud and go to the court for false advertise when the ps4 aint able to play 3d games or blueray films. Is this because you guys trying to sell the 3d head set? And comeon backward compatibility should be possible dont come up with its not build for it on pc any emulators possible so its just some programming issue and drop the remakes and try to rip us off.

And for those sharing options yehaaa err no im no twich user i use facebook many ppl use facebook and post to the youtube so where is upload to youtube account? Is that cause you guys cannot get a understanding between google or what? I think there is alot of diapointment still for ps4 that needs to be corrected and also the dualshock 4 battery life and dimming the light is ok but it would also be nice to select light color since...

So keep up working to make us happy pls ans cut the crap and Give ps4 owners 2 decent titles of free games like ps3 and vita those games we get free is not worth playing even given out free i would keep play java games on pc if it was that kinda game we played shame on you sony.

now we only need the 3D and/or 4K support for movies. :-)

RuttedPillow36 30 April, 2014 @ 09:26

Nice update. but any sign of being able to customize backgrounds?

We don’t need game recording and video sharing features, there’s a tiny minority of people who can produce something that’s actually entertaining and worth watching, the majority will be aggravating noise which’ll serve as a detriment to your platform.
Please focus on the media player functionality,the PS3 is still the superior machine in that respect. Whichever exec is driving the former function over the latter needs a slap.

76.1

Indeed, who exactly is heading up the PS4 OS development? I mean, surely you have some kind of competent team in place to push these updates through, and with some speed?

Are we *ever* getting 3D bluray support?! I’m beginning to wonder if something intrinsic with the hardware is stopping this being implemented…

And DLNA support is surely one of the number one requested features, so why not just listen and give your loyal base what they really want?

More video editing features are not what people want to be honest. It works at the moment because it is quick and simple. You’ve just turned the video sharing into something it’s not supposed to be…

Sack the person running this side of things, as they’re obviously *completely* out of touch….

so,where is 3d play availability??!!!!!sony do not put this option as they still want to buy and have two consoles.big minus in my opinion.

With software update 3.10, support for the DualShock 4 controller has been added to the PS Vita TV, that previously supported only the DualShock 3.

Please give us DualShock 4 support for the PS Vita!!
PSPgo has DS3 support, and it works great!

Thanks for the update. Loving my PS4 so far, can’t wait to try out SHAREfactory, it sounds awesome.

Would also like to add my voice to those asking for better download management. (Pausing and scheduling)

80

What about Bluetooth support, my Turtle Beach PX4’s are still unable to connect, wirelessly, Sort it out Playstation, get in touch with your original equipment manufacturers, i’m getting s!ck of waiting

81

I am liking the new update and new features on the PS4 but would love to have the notifications back for when my friends come online but unlike the PS3 be able to turn some peoples notifications off so you don’t keep seeing them going on, off, on, off, on off all the time.

82

Amazing update

hyperrabbit2 30 April, 2014 @ 10:02
83

So it must be USB HDD for exporting clips and screenshots? Tried my memory stick, camera and tablet – USB device not connected.

83.1

I tried with USB HDDs (FAT32 and NTFS) and got the same error message: USB device not connected

UPDATE is ONLINE!

PS4 3D game support is always on the firts firmware. I played zen pinball in 3D on my PS4.

Do you guys have any idea if CD support is being worked on, or if it’s even possible?

Hexathelidae 30 April, 2014 @ 10:30
87

I hope you also will include in a future update a fix for the audiosync/lipsync problems on BluRays. Game of Thrones season 3 is unwachable on my PS4, but works just fine on my PS3.

I why can’t I play a simple CD on the PS4? Loved the media center-features on the PS3. Why scrap it for the PS4?

88

The issue surrounding the lack of SUSPEND/RESUME still remains unaddressed.

It seems very odd that a device such as the Vita had it implemented perfectly from day one, yet it’s bigger, more powerful, sibling is still missing the feature that was talked about heavily during all the promotional spiel pre-release.

If you really wanted to please the community, then give them the features that they’re asking for – not the ones that you’re implying that they asked for.

If you unselfishly prioritise, then there will be less to criticise. ;)

What about the patch for bluetooth headsets? Still have to use the chat wire on my wireless turtle beach headset. I can use it on my ps3 without wires but the new ps4 does not support it.

90

Please also add a sortable download list for both Vita and PS3.

91

Please just give us 3D And you tube ive had my ps4 6 months now and turned it on maybe 5 times, I feel that I totally wasted my money, when my ps3 is used daily

I can’t believe it… After all the hype and fanfare, there is literally nothing here that I care about even slightly. Not a single update released since the system launched has added anything of value for me.
Why do you presume that your entire audience wants these sharing and social features? Your focus is very much skewed towards the social aspect, while basic functionality is being ignored. I personally don’t want to share, stream, twitch, tweet, rate, like, tickle or poke anything. What I would like though, is for the most powerful console in existence to be capable of playing a simple media file. Is it really so much to ask?
Can the next update please focus on features? Maybe alternate, every other update, between this sort of superfluous sharing stuff and actual useful functionality.
Look at JumPeRJumPzZ comment. That’s what we need. All of that. He has made a perfect list of what’s missing.

Seriously, where was the demand for a video editing app? Oh that’s right, there was non...

Seriously, where was the demand for a video editing app? Oh that’s right, there was none. But people have been asking since before launch for the ability to simply play an MP3, and that’s barely even been mentioned by Sony since then. The PS3, PSVita, and even the PSP can all play media files. Why go backwards?
With all the time you spent developing shareFactory, you could have added so much…

I said this update added nothing for me, but that’s not entirely true. It added more home screen spam. I’m up from 3 useless icons, to 5. Now I have Live From PlayStation, Music Unlimited, The Playroom, SHAREfactory and Captures. And I thought the permanent Singstar icon on PS3 was bad… Pretty soon half of my home screen will be taken up by unwanted apps.

Just going to ask this once again… Can you PLEASE make the PS4 as capable as the last-gen PS3? Please? Pretty please? With sugar on top? Please? I’ll be your best friend.
It’s still missing tons of basic features that should have been there at launch, never mind 6 months later. Please reevaluate your priorities. The PS3 remains a far more capable system than the PS4, and at this point I honestly regret making the “upgrade”.

Notifications when our friends sign in /out PLEASE? This is very important!
Favorite friends list is needed too, and notifications would be active ONLY for this list.

94

Great update !! but can you add the option for DUAL Audio output when a USB headset is connected ? (Like the PS3) so that sound can be outputted via the headset AND HDMI ?

The reason being I use a external Capture device but I now have to choose between using the headset OR capturing as currently I can’t do both !!

95

still have stand by issues, i have two ps4’s, – ps4 A) gos in to stand by mode “yellow light” ps4 wakes from stand by mode and shows the user list after some seconds, – ps4 B ) gos in to stand by mode “yellow light” ps4 wakes from stand by mode and shows the PlayStation logo with a black background, it takes a good minute before it shows the user list, its as if i turned it off, i’m starting to think ps4 B) has a fault,

This is a very good update howev, there are still a few things that are needed…native mp3 playback, sen account name change (people evolve and mature over time), theme customisation, change tile layouts, suspend games (as promised at launch), video chat with friends, dlna, increased amound and faster servers, etch just to name a few things.

DistanceIowa 30 April, 2014 @ 10:54

Like what you’re doing so far, but there are still some things I’d like. Themes (don’t like the background), a YouTube app, ability to download and view/listen to videos,music, and pictures via all media devices, friend notifications, game folder and trophy folder to organize the cluster f##k that is the main screen. I’ll leave it at that.

There are a lot of features people talk about I would love to see. But since Sony is presenting their console as a ‘socially connected console experience’ I would expect the option to play together on the couch and share the data when you play on one console.

It’s not just for fun dat every controller is connected to a specific user. Sadly, game-progress and trophies with multiplayer games do not sync. Only the person that started the game, will get the credits. I would love to see this in the next update. :-)

Sometimes I play at my sister. I download my game-data via plus and continue playing. Works perfect since day one. Sadly, when I log in at my sisters console, all my notifications will pop-up again. I would expect this is all synced up in the cloud. Maybe It’s good to take a look at this one. :-)

100

ShareFactory is pretty wicked! i really hope you guys add new transitions and themes for it in the future!
Just need a video worth editing lol

YES! +1 for multiple acc! I can not play PS+ games on my primary account because we STILL does not have PS Store…

102

All good stuff but when is Sony going to sort out the LPCM / Dolby / DTS audio problems, the Netflix audio problems and the fact that the Blu-ray capabilities are still inferior to those of the PS3.

I realise PS4 is “for the gamers” but I can’t be alone it using it for Netflix and Blu-ray playback :)

103

Nice update thank you. Personally would have preferred dlna first. When?

After being here seeing the news I realized that almost everyboby here is Plus! That’s insane! You people really want to pay to acess multiplayer options? It should be free, or at least to acess the game multiplayer options we should pay just one time only, I don’t see this on the PC and still is the reason why I love PS3.

104.1

PS+ is more than just PS4 online multiplayer access. As someone who loves their PS3 you should really check it out, the games on offer are still heavily in favour of PS3 and Vita.

It’s possible many PS+ users here had their subscriptions before the PS4 was even released.

Does “Automatic pre-download” feature mean that we will be actually able to pre-order something for PS4 from Europe-centered Online Stores?

It deeply intrigues me why US Store allows it’s users to pre-order PS4 Watch_Dogs, for example, while GB, DE, RU etc. ones not.

we still need itvplayer and 4od when are these coming to the ps4

106.1

Yes please, these are sorely missed. And a native YouTube app.

107

Great update, in addition to this great support, I wouldn’t mind notifications of when friends come online and go offline, just like the PS3 has.

will we be seeing a youtube app and a bluray remote for the ps4 in the near future?

when is itv player and 4od coming please

‘At PlayStation, we love hearing the great feedback we get from our passionate community of gamers.’

O’ RLY? If that was true then where is MP3 support? Where is 3D Blu-ray support? Where is DLNA support? From what I can see from the many months of seeing what the gamers want no one has asked for this new share update. Many want the basic functionality of what the PS3 offers, it’s amazing that the PS4 with how powerful and advanced it is you guys at Sony are unable to even include basic functions that a last gen system is able to offer.

I chose Sony this gen and I truly hope you guys ARE actually listening to what the gamers want because I want my PS4 to offer me media functionality which should have been offered on day 1 as its a no-brainer and doesn’t take that much effort to include considering its based on an X86-64 PC architecture.

111

Has nothing to do with this but… will Disgaea D2 get a price drop anytime soon? I mean, 50€ its kinda ridiculous for a game that came out 7 months ago…. 35€ and you would have a buyer!

112

Got to agree with a lot of people on here and other forums. I don’t know who Sony keeps saying there listening too but it certainly not the people I have read about in the forums. All I want and many other people want is 3D capability back. Im extremely disappointed with the system so far, just wished they would listen to the right people for once

kobi_shalom18 30 April, 2014 @ 11:47

Why should I pay for the internet why it is not free like on PS3???

With the new version of the Playstation App, we can use our own completely individual profile picture.
Can everyone see this profile picture, or just the people we’ve added as friends?

115

STILL no ability for my friends on their PS3 to see I’m active on the PS4. As far as some are concerned I’d stopped gaming all together. I’ve had to message all the PS3 friends I’m still alive. Connectivity between ALL platforms should have been a priority at launch.

Credit where it’s due, at least Microsoft began fixing the XBO U.I problems immediately. But Sony….?

116

Also, why can’t avatar’s I’ve bought on the Store be accessed by the PS4? The other day I bought several £2 avatars only to find out I’d need to hook my PS3 back up again to set these to my profile.

Absolutely ridiculous. It’s 2014!

Some of the ‘Stealth’ fixes are better than the featured list:

To quote Dualshockers:

Today Sony Computer Entertainment released the new 1.7 firmware update, and published the official patch notes. Turns out, though, that the notes aren’t really complete, and the update includes several stealthy changes that Sony did not list, including some very relevant ones, like the ability to log in a second user with the same DualShock 4 controller, as discovered by NeoGAF user Guymelef and others.

Notifications: New notification type: From PlayStation.
System: You can now log in with multiple users with a single DualShock 4 controller without logging out the others.
System: The “What’s New” menu now has timestamps.
System: The log-in screen won’t be displayed anymore when reconnecting the DS4.
System: When a game crashes you can now choose to attach a video clip in the error report and send it to Sony.
System: Added option to automatically send error reports to Sony.

Settings – Audio: You can now force the PS4 to output 5.1 channel audio over HDMI even if it detects 7.1 channel support.
Settings – Video: “Deep Colur Output” added. It’s possible to set it to “off” and “automatic”.
Share: It’s now possible to upload multiple screenshots to Facebook at the same time.
Streaming: Comments/viewers notifications added when you are in a full screen streaming.
Streaming: You can now upload screenshots and video while broadcasting.
Streaming: You can now view comments without having to switch streaming modes.

In addition to the changes listed above, multiple users are reporting that the whole operating system is now faster, especially on the PSN storefront,on the trophies screen, on the “What’s New” section and during overall multitasking.

Finally, others are also mentioning that the bug that caused the “Share” button to record the wrong segment of footage has been corrected, and now it correctly records the latest fifteen minutes of gameplay.

One best updates so far on ps4 and why people sad that they want other updates instead of this update look ps4 was realse last november and its only the begining wht this ps4 updates and ya pspvita got update as well with it so pspvita owners wont be left out.

119

when ever i want to sync my trophies I get this error gets to around 63%
same problem on ps3 wouldn’t let me fully sync trophies , when got ps4 it was fine for a while but now just get the error message

119.1

Could it be router issue?

119.2

router is fine can sync trophies on vita

121

Please remove the chat notification! Every time i enter a game on call of duty ghost or switch lobby we get that notitication! It drives us nuts! I switched of show notifications but still it shows!

Seems like you guys are leaving PS3 in the dust, eternally under threat by HDCP forever.
Will there ever be a patch for this?

123

I do appreciate the hard work that this update must have entailed but why are we still waiting around for DLNA & Divx support?
I still can’t sell my PS3 as i rely on it media abilities.

124

MP3 Playback and a Youtube app a dedicated one not one through the browser and the ability to watch and listen to our own content form external harddrives the same as the PS3 does , This is what people have been asking for , Not this ShareFactory garbage,Only good thing in this update is the ability to transfer clips to usb.

yourlegaldealer 30 April, 2014 @ 13:21
125

It’s great to see an major update but I still can’t believe how far behind the PS3 the PS4 is when it comes to the most useful, basic functions as highlighted by many here.

Enough of all the fancy apps for now – please start from the ground up!

What about PS4 suspend/resume mode support?

127

This looks like a great update, some really nice features for gamers who like to make videos.
I understand why Sony are trying to please the bloggers and streamers first as it makes perfect marketing sense to have public voices saying good things about their products.

That said, as someone who hasn’t bought a PS4 yet, one of the reasons I’m holding off just yet is that the PS4 still feels a little unfinished in terms of features and options that we have for PS3.

* Media playback support (mp3, CD, avi, mpg, etc).

This looks like a great update, some really nice features for gamers who like to make videos.
I understand why Sony are trying to please the bloggers and streamers first as it makes perfect marketing sense to have public voices saying good things about their products.

That said, as someone who hasn’t bought a PS4 yet, one of the reasons I’m holding off just yet is that the PS4 still feels a little unfinished in terms of features and options that we have for PS3.

* Media playback support (mp3, CD, avi, mpg, etc).
* DLNA support.
* Dual audio output.
* Blu-ray 3D support.

* Homescreen management. – The PS4 homescreen looks good imo. I’ve heard bad things from PS4 owners in terms of customising or maintaining it in terms of sorting, filtering and deleting stuff you don’t want on there though.

For me, next-gen should be moving towards superior features, OPTIONS and customisation with regards to updates. Things like party chat and the ‘share’ features are fantastic additions to Playstation but I’m still waiting for PS4 to bulk up the basic features before I invest.

Keep up the good work Sony.
