PS4 1.70 update excitement

While the PS4 continues to bring gamers a lot of joy, it’s no secret that the console did not launch with some features that were expected. Sony has promised to bring some of these features at a gradual stage, some of which we now know will come in the forthcoming PS4 1.70 update.

Sony has decided to bump the firmware right up to PS4 1.70 when the next update arrives, which is a jump from PS4 1.62 which we are currently on at the moment.

As most of you are well aware, the PS4 launched without features such as 3D Blu-Ray support, MP3 playback, DLNA, a native YouTube app and the option to playback media from an external USB.

Unfortunately, these features are still pending but Sony will be offering some worthwhile features with PS4 1.70 to at least show work in progress. These have been confirmed in a Tweet below by Chris Owen – UK community manager for PlayStation Europe.

These are the features that we initially thought would arrive with PS4 1.63. Now we now however that they will instead arrive with PS4 1.70. The HDCP and external Share features are a very nice touch indeed and should make a lot of PS4 gamers happy.

What we think would be a really nice feature would be to allow screenshots captured with the Share button, to be sent directly to an email. Facebook and Twitter is good, but Sony should work at extending these options as it’s always good to have an alternative.

With PS4 1.70 around the corner, let us know what you would most like to see on your new next-gen console.
