PlayStation 4 Will Let You Share Record And Share Gameplay Videos

By Ishaan . February 20, 2013 . 3:35pm

PlayStation 4’s new Dualshock controller will have a “Share” button, Sony have confirmed. The button will allow you to begin recording a segment of gameplay, pick out which portions you want to share, and then upload and share them.


The video will be uploaded while you return to your game. Sony say they’re using a new compression and decompression system to enable fast video sharing.

    Seems like part of the ‘paid’ online service they were talking about. I’m not convinced… yet.

      So we have to pay for online now?

    While I don’t really care about a new PlayStation console after the PS3 turned out to be kind of underwhelming for me, I must admit that this is a really good feature.

  • Does this mean I’ve to always be online when playing the PS4?

    • Kevadu

      Why would it mean that? You don’t *have* to share.

    “new compression and decompression system to enable fast video sharing” Video sharing? So im not able to save my recording as a .mp4 or wav? Only able to do this online through the psn?

  • I expect a lot of recordings of videos catching rage quitters or gamer trolls in their act of gaming to flood a decent portion of Youtube in the upcoming future lol Still PS4 is here! Awesome! Looking forward to it!

    Yes. Yes.
    This is perfect

    So now I don’t have to buy stupid expensive equipment to do this?! YES!

    Kind of odd that they didn’t even show the system but the conference (moreso the beginning of it) definitely got me excited.

    “Screenshot this on my flash drive” button, please?

    Japanese gaming videos are coming…

    I hope that “The video will be uploaded while you return to your game.” isn’t explicit, like, I hope I can record and choose what parts to share and then choose when (if ever) to upload it.
