A day before Sony officially announced firmware 1.70 and its features, Cha1ky
leaked what it would include in a post: I'm sure the next big (1.70) firmware will have some nice features... perhaps.
Be good to see a video editing suite... the ability to remove videos from the PS4 via USB or record onto external devices... dim the light bar perhaps... amongst other things.
I'd certainly welcome the ability to remove the videos and put them on my PC for editing. Although I also wish i could set the quality.
Might keep my eye out for a proper recording device in preparation for recording via HDMI..."
