Sony Wants to Add New Features to ShareFactory on PS4, and to Improve the Current Ones

on November 26, 2014 6:13 PM

ShareFactory definitely proved to be a good little pastime on PS4, allowing gamers to edit their game clips quickly and easily, without having to resort to a PC and to more complex editing software.

Yet, it appears that Sony isn’t yet done with improving it. A new career opportunity ad seeking a Senior Software Engineer indicates that the company wants to add new features and improve what we already have.


The position would be responsible for development and optimization on the SHAREfactory video editing software for PS4. SHAREfactory uses the power of the PS4 to seamlessly render and edit video, special effects and sound in real time. We are a small team of extremely skilled engineers and that means everyone needs to pitch in at times to work outside their specialty. It’s an exciting project with many interesting areas to innovate. We are looking for someone who can join the team and immediately add functionality to the app, while adhering to our high level of quality.


  • New feature development and current feature enhancement
  • Debug and optimize application systems
  • Work well and communicate team members
  • Self-manage and work independently on development tasks
  • Tools development and other systems development as required


Interestingly, the ad requires a true veteran for the job, seeking someone with at least 10 years of experience. It’ll be very interesting to see what kind of features will be introduced to the app.

Ideally, it’d be nice to have some non-linear video editing features like those included in Sony’s professional Vegas package, but considering the cost of that kind of software, I doubt they’ll push ShareFactory that far.
