Well that's kind of lame. Though, you can still share directly to Facebook, Twitch, and Twitter; so there's that. But the Youtube restriction is strange. Hopefully Sony listens to the feedback and allows that before launch or shortly afterwards.

I mean, it's a bummer for sure. But you're saying you will deliberately not get a PS4 because of one little restriction? (one that you can get around) wow.  :|

This issue is tied in with the HDCP issue that carries over from the PS3.


That issue is a bigger deal for those that want to capture gameplay that is longer than the limit imposed by Sony with their recording solution. Its the same for the X1, but since there is no HDCP enabled for games, you can use other methods to get around the time limit restriction. HDCP is enabled on the PS4 for games as it was with the PS3, so you have fewer options around it.



As for uploading directly to Youtube, its clear that we need another confirmation on Sony regarding this.  Mark Cerny clearly said Youtube was supported, but he might have misspoke.  Now that other 'sources' are claiming that is in fact not true, we will need Sony to clear that up.


Honestly, I think both consoles will support using Youtube when its all said and done.  Maybe its not day one, but it will be there.

Doesn't Twitch allow uploading to Youtube for your previous videos / streams?

This does not bother me one bit as I don't plan on even uploading any video of my gaming. However you can bet on it that if enough gamers complain Sony will add Youtube uploading in the future I would think! Unless of course maybe it's not technically possible on the PS4 hardware?

that seems a bit dramatic.  do you post gameplay videos on youtube now?  are you that great of a gamer that millions of people would subscribe to your channel and you'd become rich off of ads placed on your videos!@!!#!@/?! :rofl:


edit - nm, saw your censorship response, still.. bit dramatic

Since I don't use Facebook I guess I won't be using this feature!

What if they have Youtube for launch?  I don't see any reason for Sony to deliberately not implement it other than it's not ready at the moment.

Its not true, already debunked on GAF.


I mean...



So how about that Share button? Well, "Share" on the PS4 controller uses the system's hardware encoder, which is always recording the last several minutes of gameplay without using any additional system resources  An example of a Share menu shows off the fact that you can upload a video to YouTube or Facebook easily -- background uploads can take place after you add a comment. 





Also for capturing


We talked to Sony and Microsoft people at the recent E3 show, as per now it looks like Xbox One and PS4 will both work with HD PVR2. However, as we just saw for Xbox One, specs could change to what we know right now. Neither Xbox One nor PS4 are released today, so we can't test and confirm yet.
