Dim dat dualshock!
So the big update a lot of people were waiting for is here. What do you think of that update?
So what those that mean for me? That I have to move quickly because I have to buy the games for streaming on PS4, I have to buy a PVR to record them, I have to build my gaming PC for no less than 700$ looks like and that makes me a little frustrated ha ha ha.
I'm surprised you haven't gone mad with the whole building a computer thing. I would have lost it.
Trust me my friend I am going crazy. For me to achieve the things I want I have to go very very deep into myself and calm down. Its stressful because I have to record, edit, Play a lot ( I dont mind that part but I cannot be failing 300 times you know) I am getting interested in the whole commentary about things that happen with gaming like for example: Sony says no more PS4. well I would make a video about my opinion. and yeah I have to do other stuff that are not gaming related. ANd then I have the computer to build so yeah I am working like never in my life hah. I told my friend "When I get noticed on the internet we will meet all of our idols and we will kidnap them. Hahaha no but one of my dreams is to see with my own eyes people that I like to watch on Youtube and other places. I already saw Avenged Sevenfold when they did a concert on Puerto Rico. I still cannot believe I saw that man ( and I cannot believe I can talk after singing every song with almost no air on my lungs and my heart was imitating a Ferrari).
This update is epic. I have yet to install it. But wow so much content.
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 that provides a walkthrough of what you can expect:
Automatic Pre-download: No more waiting until after a game is released 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.
it terms of amount of new enhancements and changes, this is a HUGE update. A lot of the stuff sounds really great, especially sorting trophies by rarity, new friend adding options, and paying with paypal.
Adding friends on both ps4 and vita breaks frequently.
Just accepted your friend request.
Anybody having any issue's after the update, I've noticed my sound cutting out, and weird graphical glitches, lines across the screen. Perhaps its the game I'm playing, Octodad.ill have to check out other.
Yupp, went to accept your request on PS4 and it kept breaking. Moved to Vita, broke. Moved to PS App, took me like 2 tries. Hope they put out a fix fast.
Ok, after some searching I found that I'm not the only one with the issue. To fix it you go to:
- sound and screen
- video output settings
- turn deep color output to off
I guess some tvs don't support that, which causes issues. Since the change I'm not having any issues.
Oh and I'm having issues adding you as well, toom a few shots, but I believe I gitbyea
