PlayMemories Studio Brings Photo Editing to PS3
Posted by Sammy Barker
Out this week
If you’ve ever had the urge to edit photographs on the PlayStation 3, then there's a chance you might have some serious mental health problems. But alas, you can take comfort in the knowledge that you’re not alone, as Sony has announced that the PlayMemories Studio – originally revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show in January – is headed to the PlayStation Store this week.
For £15 you’ll get access to a host of photo and video manipulation tools, including the ability to add sound and video effects to captured footage. The application will use the upcoming PlayMemories Online cloud service to allow you to share projects across multiple devices, including the PSP and PS Vita.
It sounds solid for what it is, but we’re just not convinced there’s a market for this kind of application on consoles. Thankfully, Sony’s announced that a free 30-day trial will be available for those that aren’t sure whether they want to crop photos of Daniela Hantuchova with a DualShock 3.
