One of the new and exciting features coming to both next gen consoles is the ability to record and upload your gameplay direct from either your PS4 or Xbox One.
Yesterday, the official Microsoft website announced The Xbox One’s DVR technology constantly records the last 5 minutes of game play and that gamers will be able to upload videos of that footage at 720p and 30fps. But this is only possible if you have purchased a Xbox Live Gold Membership. Non-Subscribers also won’t have access to the much hyped TV-centric OneGuide, Skype and SmartMatch.
Moments later, in typical Sony
fashion, Sony confirmed that users will not have to subscribe to Playstation Plus to use the new feature, which allows PS4 owners to upload a whopping 15 minutes of footage. However, for the first time ever Playstation will require you to subscribe to Playstation Plus
to play games online.
As both consoles require you to subscribe to play your games online, I doubt this will deter many people from choosing one console over the other. However, one thing is clear, whenever Microsoft have a big development Sony seem very determined to have the last word. Don’t be surprised to see the details of this recording feature change, as so far Microsoft have backtracked on several features to their Xbox One. In reaction to Sony’s product we have seen Microsoft’s DRM/Pre-owned
polices thrown out of the window as well as the inclusion of a headset being bundled with the console, which previously wasn’t the case.
