YouTube support coming to PS4 this fall

PlayStation 4 owners will be able to upload gameplay captures directly to their YouTube channel via DualShock 4's Share button this fall, Sony Computer Entertainment America president and CEO Shawn Layden announced during Sony's E3 2014 press conference today.

"After pressing Share, you'll see the YouTube icon pop up alongside Facebook, Twitter, Twitch, and Ustream, and in just a couple of quick steps, you can go from playing your favorite games to publishing videos on your own YouTube channel," Sony's announcement reads. "You'll also be able to see your friends' shared YouTube videos using the 'What's New' feed."

A YouTube app on PS4 will also roll out, allowing users to access YouTube channels and videos. Players can spectate friend's game sessions via Twitch and Ustream. Not only can users spectate gameplay in real-time, viewers can interact with player while playing, for instance giving them verbal warnings or tips.

According to Sony, 95 percent of Sony's new generation of hardware worldwide are connected to PlayStation Network. The controller's Share button has been pressed 220 million times since the console's release last November.
