Sony has just recently released a major firmware update for the PlayStation 4 with the PS4 firmware 1.70 update. The 1.70 update includes HDCP disabling, Twitch and Ustream archiving, auto-downloading and pre-loading for pre-ordered games, a few more extras and the new SHAREfactory app.
What the new SHAREfactory suite does is that it lets players edit and customize their gameplay videos for video capture and streaming, while the HDCP option does is that it allows people to record your gameplay videos or whatever you do with your PS4 using external recording devices. (We have yet to test this and how this works). With the 1.70 update, you can now increase your broadcast resolutions up to 720p and you can archive your streams so you can watch them later on Twitch or Ustream.
