PS4 Firmware Update 3.00: Check Out PNG vs. JPG Comparison And Twitter Video Share In Action [Update]

In case you still haven’t checked your email, Sony has started sending out Beta invites to users for PS4’s latest system software update. This new update includes the option to save screenshots in PNG format, as well share videos on Twitter.

Since the firmware update has gone live, some users have started sharing their videos and screenshots to Twitter. Below you can see a comparison between JPG and PNG screenshots on the latest firmware update. (Top = JPG, Bottom = PNG)

Update: Here is another comparison shared by NeoGAF user Conduit. It is also interesting to note that the compressed JPG is less than 1 MB while the uncompressed PNG is close to 4 MB here. (Top = JPG, Bottom = PNG)

In addition to this comparison, we can also get a look at the videos being shared on Twitteer, and we have to add, they sure look good even if they are limited to 10 seconds on Twitter.
