PS Plus not required for PS4 streaming and game capture

New, 41 comments

A PlayStation Plus subscription will not be required for PlayStation 4 users to record and stream gameplay, according to a series of tweets from Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida.

In response to a number of fan questions on Twitter regarding the PS4's ability to record and share game content, Yoshida tweeted that these features would not be exclusive to PS Plus members and would be available to all PS4 users.

These tweets come on the heels of Microsoft's confirmation yesterday that the Xbox One's Game DVR recording feature, along with Skype and its TV guide and SmartMatch programs, will only be available to players with paid Xbox Live Gold accounts.

Earlier this year, Sony announced PS4 players would be able to record segments of gameplay and share them with friends via the console's social networking features.
