A minor PS4 update was released on March 18, but it only dealt with minor tweaks to make players’ experiences more stable overall. However, Sony has big plans for future updates.
According to Sony’s blog post about the next PS4 update, you’ll be able to move/save your videos and screenshots to USB drives, which should make a lot of users happy. You’ll also have access to “a rich video editor.” More importantly, for those of you who like to record long gameplay clips, you’ll be able to turn off HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) and capture HDMI footage.
Later updates will include the ability to archive Twitch broadcasts and stream footage at 720p.
Shuhei Yoshida, the president of SCE Worldwide Studios, also announced that a future update will allow you to dim the LED light on the DualShock 4 controller.
@geoffkeighley no, I said dim the LED, not turn off

It sounds like there’s a lot of good stuff to look forward to, and Sony is definitely listening to fans. What PS4 updates do you hope to see in the future?
