    PS4 OS Details Revealed by Former Sony Employee: Share Button Options, Notifications

    I think this is good information that we should all know. It looks like they made this OS very functional.

    http://gamingbolt.com/ps4-os-details...-and-safe-zone

    Kenny Linder, a former employee of shuttered Sony UK studio Bigbig, has revealed some new details about the PlayStation 4′s OS , namely about adjusting the safe zone, notifications and the extent of what the Share button can do.Remember playing some games where you could adjust the size of the screen to better fit the game into the edges? That square is the safe zone and dictates how the game is fit into your display. You can now adjust it in the PS4′s OS itself, thus eliminating the need to individually match it for each game.
    As for notifications, you can choose from different toggles for what notification you receive such as for Friends, Downloads Complete and much more. If you want to game in peace without any notifications, you can switch them off without issues. You also have the option to turn the OS music on and off.
    The Share button has three key functions: the ability to take screenshots, calling up the menu and recording video. You’ll also have different options for how many taps do what. For example, a single press of the Share button could take a screenshot while double tapping it will start recording. You can adjust these around to have a single press bring up the menu and a long press to start recording depending on your preferences.
    The PlayStation 4 will be launching on November 15th in North America and on November 29th in Europe. What are your thoughts on these additions to the OS? Let us know below.

    Just a quick question. I'm a little confused. I thought the ps4 will always be recording the last 15 minutes in the background but this is saying you have to start the recording with the press of a button. what's the deal?

    I like the screen adjusting idea. Always was annoying having to change that for every game that had it.

    Without a button to trigger multiple instances you would only have the final fifteen minutes available at the end of your game.

    Looking at the recently revealed FAQ, it will be storing the last 15 minutes of gameplay video in RAM (from what I can tell), they should of put 1GB of cheap DDR3 RAM in there for the video hardware to store the last 15 minutes on instead of wasting previous GDDR5!

    It would be exponentially more expensive to implement that onto the motherboard.

    Maths is biased! It keeps telling me the PS4 is 50% more powerful than XboxOne!
    Great song, should have more views :'(

    If they would have designed that from the get go it wouldn't have cost that much more, it could have been integrated into the video compression/decompression chipset

    PS4 has enough RAM. That feature doesn't hurt game developers at all.
