Yesterday evening, Sony shared some details on the upcoming 1.70 PS4 update. In particular, the announcement unveiled a video editor called SHAREfactory and the new pre-download feature.

SHAREfactory is an app that will let you combine videos, personalize them, add audio, and more. If you have the PlayStation Camera, you’ll also be able to add picture-in-picture video commentary. You can then upload your videos directly to Facebook or to a USB device. Several other features are also on their way, to make SHARE a great experience for everyone.

And yes, pre-downloads are finally coming to the PS4. If you preorder a digital game, you can pre-download it in advance (or set it to automatically pre-download), so you can play it the instant it’s released.

It’s great to see these features coming. Sony emphasized the role fan feedback played in this update, so be sure to keep sharing your thoughts and ideas! What features would you still like to see come to the PS4?
