I wish they at least had same the (and a bit more) features than the PS3 and Xbox 360 had.
There is no reason they couldnt do this from launch. They just want your money!
I hope they add these features soon in a patch.
I hope the PS4 has some sort of patch coming to fix some of the sharing features. Notably, the PS4 has a lot of issues when trying to upload the last 15 minutes of footage. A lot of times, maybe even the majority of the times, it won't save the 15 minutes prior to your pressing of the button (i.e. right after you do something awesome). Instead, it'll take a seemingly random previous 15 minutes and save that.. Which doesn't help a whole lot.
@unfreak-believThat happens to me, but only right after I keep mashing the share button. It seems, if you upload footage and then trim it, the system is still trying to process it for a little while so if you try to upload footage shortly after that, it won't work. For Instance, I was trying to record Knack's Dancing at the end when they roll the credits and it showed the prior uploaded gameplay instead. That kinda sucks a bit, I admit, but not too much because I usually upload screenshots - did 25 screenshots today. I CAN'T BELIEVE THE XBOX CAN'T UPLOAD SCREENSHOTS!! I love sending messages to my friends with my cool unique ps4 screenshots attached :) Add me on PSN: "NateIsGod4"
I didn't know about the XB1 achievement recording. thats pretty cool. It would make for some really useful achievement walkthroughs.
@Urizen5 its a function in the video game, not the console.
@meedokicky I'm pretty sure they don't. I know some video editing software can do that. Text can track movement
thinkin about that all you process console is looks like everthing phone and tablet is keep crashed for new realeased. by the way the wii u you talkin is bad motion when you dowload free and video the data memory could be damage any else when you get another game. but think those scient are jealous for now because is dumbstrashed new console are nothin to buy it and thats all i expected
@El_Giucuhow dare you! He might be learning the language.
@hystavitoMe too, I have to find the "Share Settings." Where is it?
unfortunately there is no archiving of PS4 streams via twitch yet.... this will hopefully be added soon.
@hammoud Yea I really wish they told us that. Would be nice to know.
@hammoudI've been saving videos on PS4 while in a party chat, and for that it only saves your voice. It's unfortunate, as it ultimately just sounds like you're talking to yourself. As for talking in game chat, I really don't know. I really only play Battlefield with friends, and with the frequent crashes it isn't worthwhile to use game chat.
@hammoudActually, I'm watching a video that I uploaded and game chat may be included. There's an annoying bug on PS4 and/or BF4 where you can hear people in game chat despite being in party chat, and in the video I can hear someone else speak for a second. So I'm assuming if you had a group talking in game chat, it would go through fine.
So - how do we send suggestions for questions? Where do we get to know about the next topic apart from subscribing, which I assume only tells when a new episode is available? (I don't know where to find this.)
you can't compare two products on the same thing since one isn't up and running yet but have to say this is the best idea that either came up with cause now I can get rid of my pc and external cap card and stream via console makes my life 1 trillion times easier! Now I just have to wait for a few things to take place before I do this. 1)Microsoft sell a console with out a lame kinect! 2) Microsoft has to turn on the ability to stream to twitch! 3) the cost of XB1 (for those of you that don't know what that means its Xbox One) needs to come down about $100 at least! Till then I will enjoy the PS4! Long Live Xbox!!!!!
PS4 and XB1 features....coming soon.
I like these two guys. They are both realistic about expectations.
You wont be able to stream xbox one games till 2014 sometime unless you have a Hauppauge Computer Works HD PVR or another companies. The PS4 got lucky streaming first. I'm jealous but then again I just bought this 200 dollar device that new consoles are x'ing out.
MISLEADING TITLE! It's called broadcasting, NOT streaming. I was expecting to see mention of Gaikai etc. But why mention useful stuff when you can talk about social crap, right? Well, screw you.
@Prequell Wow. I hope your day gets better, man.
@Prequell someone needs a hug
why you change hd cable video that type 10800 are burned screen the ps4 cant take any longer for damage in the rect of cheap program the ps4 is outed control console thats means why japanese build the future. and tell me how the hell was during so longer player so 29hour with that ps4 and xbox one
You mean...like Wii U ? =) Sorry couldn't resist. Please add Wii U to this picture, since it was the main innovator of this feature. Leaving them out is like featuring move and kinect in a motion controller article - but leaving out Wii.
