You can then share your videos on Facebook or export them to an external USB storage device. The app is packed with plenty of cool, but accessible, tools. Itís simple enough to use for beginning editors, while functioning as a rich video editor for those with more creative aspirations.

    Automatic Pre-download: This new feature allows you to get to your games faster by automatically downloading select pre-ordered games up to several days in advance of the release, so that itís ready to play as soon as the game is released on launch day. Thereís also a countdown timer prior to the release of the game so youíll know how soon your game will be available for you to start playing.

    - Select specific Facebook audiences to share each video or screenshot with.

    New DUALSHOCK 4 Options: New light bar settings have been added for DUALSHOCK 4, allowing you to change it to Bright, Medium or Dim in the Settings menu. The touchpad has also been updated, allowing you to navigate the on-screen keyboard using the DUALSHOCK 4 touchpad.
