    Sony Confirm That PS Plus Isn't Required For Streaming Game Video

    Yesterday, we learned that the Game DVR features of the Xbox One would be locked behind the Xbox Live Gold paywall, meaning that you couldn’t stream or record your games without the £40 a year subscription.
    While we were aware that the PS4 would record the last fifteen minutes of gameplay at all times without the need for a PlayStation Plus subscription, we weren’t entirely sure if the same was true for the game streaming and whether that would be locked behind the paywall of PS Plus.
    Thankfully, Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed on twitter that you won’t require Plus for streaming, recording or posting videos.

    Sony does what microsoftdont.

    The confirmation is for the "me too" crowd that believed because ms did it, Sony will follow suite

    So every body gets to record 15min of gameplay and stream for free on one console And on the other you get to pay to record 5 min (I think) of gameplay and streaming

    Then you have free apps on one box and on the other, you have to pay to use this apps?

    I swear if I was a consumer that didn't know any of the consoles coming out and I see a list comparing these two consoles feature set...Oh well, good for ps consumers

    I follow your thread of reason. Kind of a stretch to call youtube a social feature, but I'll give you credit for putting the two and two's together

    While on one hand this is great news, this also makes it seem like you have to have PS+ just to be able to play online since everything else is free.
    This somewhat makes the PS+ seem like its not really worth it (asides for the free games and discounts I guess, but that is only if you care about those things), but that is only because on Xbox one you need Gold membership for almost everything.
    It almost seems like Sony are forcing PS+ on mutlplayer gaming only because Microsoft is.
    I got nothing against paying for online. Just saying.
    Almost everyone will say: buy console that has games that you want, and those who say otherwise are ignorant.

    Playstation Move for the win!

    I looked at it as charging so they can offer, build, and give us a better network and gaming experience. Gaikai cost around 350 million (i think)

    All those servers for us to download patches and dedicated servers for the games cost money and lots of it. Hopefully now patches will download faster because now there is more funding for more badnwidth and serves.

    Yep exactly. Having a completely free network was never a sustainable business model. People want more features, more bandwidth, faster downloads, cloud servers, etc. well that stuff costs money to implement.

    Oh yeah, anyone thinking online was going to be free forever was fooling themselves. Even back in the Dreamcast days it started out free and then i can remember paying subs for my accounts on 2k sports games and what not down the line.

    I guess some people never heard the phrase 'money doesn't grow on trees'. That applies to all aspects of life. You want great service? You're going to pay for it.

    Can't believe Microsoft is still gonna make you have an XBL Gold membership to use Netflix and social features etc. Glad to see Sony is keeping everything basically the same as the PS3, other than having to have PS+ to play games online. But I guess you'll earn that money back with the free games.

    Of course microsoft is all about that money. The more $#@! they put behind the paywall the more likely u are to buy it.

    Until Nintendo starts charging, that statement is false.
