PS4 recording doesn’t require PS Plus subscription

Thursday, 8 August 2013 12:51 GMT By Dave Cook

PlayStation 4 game recording and streaming do not require a PS Plus subscription, as confirmed by Sony’s president of worldwide studios Shuhei Yoshida.

It follows confirmation that Xbox One’s DVR features will require an Xbox Live Gold subscription.

GameInformer has collated some Twitter conversations between Yoshida and fans on the matter, showing that PS4 recording and streaming will indeed be free.

What do you make of this?

    It does seem silly for MS to lock it behind Live. Probably another thing they will U-turn on.

    I think it all depends on the execution. If MS let you upload and store to their cloud and Sony are integrating with just existing social network sites (Youtube/Facebook etc). Then the location of the feature (behind/infront of paywall) is about right.

    I think someone yesterday suggested that Microsoft’s method may be to host the streaming data themselves whilst Sony’s approach is simply to facilitate the route to third party hosts (Twitch, Ustream, YouTube etc.).

    I don’t know if that’s what the actual plan is or not. If it is then I can understand why Microsoft’s approach would be part of their Gold service.

    That said, this streaming is almost like free advertising. Get your customers to promote your game content and show it off. If my product was going to benefit from that type of promotion I’d make it as simple as possible for it to happen.

    With Gakai they have even more cloud servers now, what are they going to do with all those servers if not use for features like this….but I guess they could mainly be for streaming PS3/older games.

    PlayStation fanboy logic

    2006: OMG look at the cost of the PS3. For $599, we are getting the future of entertainment. Totally worth it!

    This site has gone to shit. If articles were actually moderated, we could have a civilised discussion rather than the article being ignored and people like ps3fanboy whipping out his cock and trying to convince everyone it is bigger than what it really is.

    I’m a fan of both consoles, had all playstations 1-3 from Limited Edition Crystal Xbox and Xbox 360

    What makes the Xbox the best and you say ps4 is ps3.5??? (I’m throwing you a bone here ad you seem to troll that’s all)
    I’m not one that really cares for specs as im a fan of the GAMES!! but the PS4 the One trumped on specs fairly substantialy if you read the reports

    I’m holding off on getting the One at launch until I no longer require the Kinect… I didn’t buy it for my 360 (nor the daft camera on ps3) as I have no interest in these things

  34. SplatteredHouse

    Well, that’s great, for the reason that on one hand Sony embraced and presented the service as accessible, and upfront in importance to the system. Microsoft showed their hand well after Sony, and were shy on details, as ever. HAD Sony restricted the use of the recording services, it would have struck out at odds against the warm, inviting tone set at the conference unveiling. An inclusive facility, with ease of use, great for capturing what you’re enjoying, and available right from the fascia.

    I think it’s a big deal, where one competitor offers less than you ask, whilst the other offers more than you might expect.

    To the point about the article, I feel that where there is a level of doubt, then the question should be asked, and information sought. Why not clarify where each player stands on an issue, if you can? In the end, its better for everyone. The person being asked gets more time/space to talk about their product, the person asking obtains more, clear, information; and the person buying, probably (as well as being left better informed) feels a little bit better about both of the former.

    It’s funny how so many still defend the greedy American company that is Microsoft. You guys are the real fanboys for not seeing how Microsoft is bending you over this generation. Most of the X1s features including “TV” is locked behind the paywall, so essentially it costs well over the $499 price. They don’t even include a headset, or rechargeable batteries in the controller, they want you to pay for all that shit. On top of that, you have the American govt. in close collaboration with Microsoft to exchange your personal information so easily. What will it take for y’all to say enough is enough?
    It’s not about being a fanboy, it’s about noticing which company is for you, and which is against you.

    I think both consoles had great games, I’m not a lover of FPS so COD and battlefield hold no interest to me, I loved Last of Us, God of War and Uncharted on PS3 and games like Kameo (my fav launch game, gutted no Kameo 2 for One) and Gears of War

    I haven’t played many games online as prefer the old school way of having my mates round enjoying a few beers

    What I do like about PS3 online is I can use itv player and BBC catchup setvices without a fee

    Many companies are hacked, I was properly as dissapointed as eveyone else with the delay in Sony announcing it

    This is probably the stupid discussion ever….

    How is this a competition? Yoshida just answered a few questions on twitter like he does all the time.

    Another stupid thing you don’t play for multiplayer, you pay for a service, that includes multiplayer and other things, well if you live outside US and pay for Xbox Live is pretty much. But that is not the point. Xbox Live and PS Plus are services.

    What i’m seeing is, Xbox Fanboys in need of bashing and downsizing everything Sony does, says, give, etc, because Microsoft was r@pped in E3.

    I don’t give a f#ck who is wining. I want booth to be successful, because if one fails we will eat only from one. This generation was the best in history, because Sony lost their monopoly, and we had two companies fighting to deliver the best value to consumers. Microsoft did a fantastic job with Xbox Live, delivering the best way i could find to play multiplayer games and chat with friends. After the hacking situation on PSN, and Kaz Hirai as SONY President we saw a more open company. They tried everything to apology to their fans. PS Plus is a superb service, i have spent 100€ in PS PLus for two years, and i’ve got so many games for free. Is usual to find myself playing PS3 and speaking with my friends in Xbox Live. This is how we can get the best of two worlds.

    Microsoft tried to rip-off all the consumers with Xbox One, this is a fact. They wanted to sell a service for 499€, with rented add-ons (games) for 60€. Where consumers did not had a choice of how and when to use the rented service.

    Xbox fanboys are so blind they want to fight for everything. Haters grow up.

    I didn’t even think about that. I wonder if they’ll do things like adding adverts before your stream?

    So maybe, before your COD clip, there’s a 30 second ad for DLc or something?

    @53 Yeah, so what? To record a multiplayer you need to play it. To play it you need to pay. Common sense. But you can still record singleplayer, so it’s +1 to sony when put against the Xbox that need to pay to record anything at all.

    That advice was for others to understand and the argument was proof that trolls u-turn on their words when necessary.

    Its clear that MS wants to force people to buy Gold, with Sony being lesser of the 2 evils in this case.
    2 180s make a 360. They can do a 180 anytime, which makes them a bit unreliable.

    Im sticking to current gen man. . Im sick and. tired already of this next gen battle. . they are all fucking up. .

    Perhaps along the line when a game comes along I just need to play I might buy a next gen console until then GTAV on PS3 here I come baby!

    @66

    I wonder how many people are thinking the same thing?

    There are soooo many classic games on the 360 / PS3 and alot of the first gen PS4 / Xbone titles (COD, AC, BF4 etc…) are multiplatform too.

    Not to mention stuff like GT6 and GTA 5 as you’ve said.

    Maybe some competition for Xbone / PS4 will potentially come from the 360 / PS3.

    @Djoenz,
    Me too for sometime. In my case I just don’t have time for one more console. Hell, I have around 5 plus Vita games sitting on my account.
    Plus animes, plus whatever else that piques my interest.
    Its just that there are only 24 hours in a day :(

    This is sensible and makes me feel good. Thanks SONY for not nickel and dimeing us like Microsoft. The paywall that Microsoft has for services that SHOULD be standard is unacceptable.

    “Hey! You want to record your games? Well we’ve put in a dedicated chip that records your video, which you are paying for, but you have to pay another fee to use it!”

    Thanks, but no thanks.

    Sony has my purchase 100%.

    They have proven loyalty to the customers. They have proven respect of privacy. They have proven the value of the products they create….

    I still have my original PS3, runs great. I can’t say that for the 5 XBOX 360 consoles my family has went through since November 2006. This isnt counting the repairs I have had done to the current XBOX 360 consoles we now own. I keep my electronics like new, dust free and shiny. There was no excuse for all the equipment failures with the consoles I have owned.

    I was never prone to a system over the other till now. I always seen it as the more the better, but with all the recent privacy concern with Microsoft, bad attitude, and greed ect, I think the decision to even think about the purchase of a XBOX ONE would be a very foolish thought.

    I know Im not alone in these thoughts, the internet is absolutely full of the ramblings. The whole argument, at this point, is the brainwashed beating a dead horse when it comes to Microsoft supporters verses Sony. Im not here for a delusional thought process, or childrens argument. Im here because I love games, stating the point of wanting quality, and the obvious. Sony has not let me down, Microsoft has.

    It boils down to this, when you sit down to play a game would you value your time in the reasurance that you wont have to worry about privacy, system failure, or any kind of nonsense that has been proven very unlikely to happen while playing a Sony console, or would you choose to run the risk with the other not so transparent?

    I say this gen Sony has it in the bag. Honestly the way they care for the fans is enough promise to secure that title.
