The PlayStation 4
has had a commanding lead over the console market
since launch, but as sales figures have dominated the headlines, Microsoft
has been quietly updating the Xbox One
Four months later, the additional features of the Xbox One
have begun to outpace those of the PlayStation 4, but Sony
doesn’t plan on waiting much longer to catch back up.
Scott McCarthy announced on the PlayStation Blog
that the next major update for the PS4 will add a video editor and the ability to record gameplay with external HDMI capture devices, two of the most requested missing features.
McCarthy says that along with these enhancements, “there will be plenty in the update to excite everyone.”
Sony is also working with Twitch
to bring 720p streams and stream archiving to the PlayStation 4, two recent additions that have given Xbox One owners reason to celebrate.
The Twitch improvements will be “part of a separate system software update in the future.”
Sony will have more on the updates in the coming weeks.
