Gaming: PS Plus Not Required to Record & Stream on PS4
Sony Worldwide Studios boss and Twitter info desk Shuhei Yoshida revealed PS4 owners won’t require a PlayStation Plus subscription to access the system’s game recording and streaming functions. After last week’s news that the Xbox One’s Game DVR recording is tied to Xbox Live Gold, several Twitter users asked Yoshida if Plus was needed for the PS4’s similar functionality. Yoshida not once, not twice, but three times replied in the negative.
As confirmed to CVG, the PS4 can continually record 15 minutes of gameplay in the background, which users can edit and publish online, as well as stream video.
