Editing: Both 2D and 3D images can be easily edited and copied to a Blu-ray disc.

Sharing: Uploading to "PlayMemories Online" is a breeze and can be done without a web browser. Uploading to Facebook, YouTube and more are possible.

Taking advantage of the extremely high processing power of PS3, users can freely zoom and scroll videos and photos, and even easily edit HD video content as if they were playing a game. Crisp handling of large-sized images which has been unimaginable in the past has now become possible on PS3 with this application. Handling the images has become as comfortable as playing a game by using a DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller. Also, it is possible to remotely use the service with PlayStation Vita or PSP (PlayStation Portable) , via Remote Play.

A free trial version of the application for a limited time will be available.

Organizing & Viewing: In addition to the videos and photos stored on PS3, content stored on cameras, external hard drives and storage devices connected via USB can be viewed without the need to transfer to PS3. Also, users can easily search and sort images by date or location.

Editing: By using action tags, adding visual/sound effects such as slow motion and frame by frame playback or inserting captions and scripts to the images are as easy and enjoyable as playing a game.

Sharing: Easily Upload to Facebook, PlayMemories Online and more.
