The recently-detailed PS4 1.70 update patch, bringing improved content-sharing services and USB flash drive content, is currently slated for an April 30th release date. So far it has been confirmed by both Sony Japan and Sony Europe, meaning that it will also likely be coming to Sony America on the same date.
What’s notable in the Sony Japan video is the improvements to the online game broadcasting available in the PS4 1.70 patch. It seems like the update will support the archiving of streams, making it easier for those that miss Twitch and Ustream broadcasts to catch up with their favorite content creators that use the PS4. Additionally, the comments being brought up and into the bottom-right corner drastically improves the quality of the chat community.
The PS4 1.70 update is guaranteed to be headed for Europe and Japan starting April 30th. We will update this story once we hear anything out of SCEA.
