SHAREfactory update coming soon to the PS4, patch 1.75 already live

Sony Entertainment announced that an update to SHAREfactory will be arriving to the PS4 tomorrow. The update includes new features and improvements based on user feedback. Starting tomorrow, you will be able to add pictures captured in Photo Mode to your SHAREfactory clips. Photo Mode has been available for inFamous: Second Son for a while now, and it will also become available for The Last of Us Remastered sometime in the future. The full list of additions is not extensive, but it’s enough to make the use of SHAREfactory a little more interesting. Check out some of the highlights coming with the new update.

  • The Last of Us theme: Just in time for the launch of The Last of Us Remastered on PS4, the new patch will add a custom theme from the critically acclaimed action-adventure game, so you can spice up your captured gameplay moments with SHAREfactory. The new TLOUR theme includes 39 new stickers, six new transitions, two new background images plus new intro, outro and title clips.
  • Import screenshots into projects: You’ll be able to import screenshots from your capture gallery to the SHAREfactory videos you create. This is a feature that many of you have requested, and we are really excited to bring this to SHAREfactory to make it easier for you to create your memorable moments. Keep those requests coming!
  • Additional updates: With this patch, you’ll also notice some newly added filter effects and stickers, as well as UI improvements. We are always trying to give you the players more fun tools to make your video projects that much better!

In related news, Sony also announced that PS4 system software update 1.75 is now live. The patch comes with a few improvements and features, and only requires 194 MB of hard drive so it’s not very big. Once you’ve updated to 1.75 you will be able to watch Blu-Ray movies in 3D directly from your PS4. This feature was demanded by users for the longest time and Sony finally decided to implement it. Another patch is also rumored to be currently in the works and will add more features once it’s released. Going by the name of update 1.8, this patch is said to be much bigger than 1.75 and will arrive around Gamescom if rumors are to be believed.

The exact list of changes is unknown at this time, but we’ll let you know as soon as we hear something so stay tuned.
