Ustream on Consoles: Not Exclusive to PS4

IGN:When the PlayStation 4 was revealed in New York City, one of the interesting features Sony showed off was PS4’s integrated Ustream capability. Ustream, according to the company’s founder and CEO Brad Hunstable, is “the largest live social broadcasting platform in the world,” and as such, the implications of Ustream on PS4 are considerable.

Both:

-Take control of other broadcasters game
-Director feature

Are unique features on the PS4 client side I really look forward to.

dedicatedtogamers1248d ago

No one said Ustream was exclusive. However, the background recording and "share" button that simply lets you rewind and upload footage IS something that hasnt been done before, and we will see if the other consoles can match it.

jujubee881248d ago

So, yeah. It's even hassle for people who are used to using fraps (or w/e other software) on PC to capture stuff without serious framedrops.

With the PS4, that is not a problem bc the system was built with video sharing in mind. Which is awesome IMO!

Crazy how soon next gen Playstation console is coming!

nukeitall1248d ago

We don't actually know what is exclusive to the PS4 until the details of the next Xbox is released. Even then, things can change down the lines. Achievements were exclusive to Xbox 360 for a long time, but eventually PS3 got trophies.

jaymart2k1248d ago

Sorry but I'm not gonna let someone take over my game.

I'm not a noob.

krepler1248d ago

Not everything is geared towards you. I'm pretty sure there will be others buying the console looking forward to the feature.

cannon88001248d ago

@jaymart2k

noob means someone who's inexperienced and also newcomer, so we'll all be noobs when we first get our hands on any ps4 games. Even if you're good at it you're still a noob because you're new.

Good_Guy_Jamal1248d ago

Right you are my friend. That feature is geared towards the noobs and casuals who need their hands to be held.

greenpowerz1248d ago (Edited 1248d ago )

Glad PS4 hype dust is settling reality seems to be visable now/today with some articles. Can't wait to see what MSFT has in store with their own many porducts and partner ventures.

"Can't wait to see what MSFT has in store with their own many porducts and partner ventures."

Well with so many of them shame they never use them...how many of them this gen have been doing either Kinect shovelware or nothing.

Oh and PS4 hype dust....wtf are you talking about

People are excited for it, whats wrong with that

CGI-Quality1248d ago (Edited 1248d ago )

Nothing, just some can't stand to see their favored brand not hyped in the same way. Annoying, yes, but easy to ignore, especially someone with one bubble who has clearly been around the block more than he was invited to be. ;)

baraka0071248d ago

shrug* why even respond to what crazy people on the internet say? It takes two to fight so just let them be. Responding and even 100% proving what they say is crazy wont stop it. It just makes it worst. Every website with a comment section proves that.

And people are also excited for the next Xbox regardless of your insistence that all it will be is Kinect games. It's sad that we already see people taking sides before we know all the details.

Root1248d ago

@MikeMyers

Maybe it's because thats all they've done with the 360 since Kinect came out

Kinect this....Kinect that....Kinect Kinect Kinect

After a while you start to see a pattern. It's sad that people can't actually learn from these types of things, same goes for franchises that end up turning into crap, you can see it but people refuse to believe it untill they actually "play the game" despite it being bad from the trailers, screenshots, teasers etc.

MikeMyers1248d ago

At last years E3 you can see Microsoft toned down all the Kinect stuff. So perhaps the next Xbox will not be focused as much on casual gaming? Again you keep getting ahead of yourself in hopes of gathering reactions on the forums since you are what I call a professional forum poster. One who tries to create discussion based a lot of times on assumptions. Then when your predictions fail to materialize you blame the media or some other party, never taking any accountability.

Root1248d ago (Edited 1248d ago )

LOL

Professional forum posters, what on earth are you going on about. Well if you want to go making things up I'll play along I guess, your what I like to call a "seeker"; a user who likes to bash and nitpick to death other peoples comments so he can start an argument because that's what he gets off on. Shame you can't keep your mouth shut most of the time and just accept what people have to say, your obsessed with making people think the same as you.

"Again you keep getting ahead of yourself"

No I learn from companies and developers past mistakes. If they have done something repeatability or do something like another dev/company which has done something similar in the past then you most likely know what's to come next

MikeMyers1248d ago (Edited 1248d ago )

"Shame you can't keep your mouth shut most of the time and just accept what people have to say, your obsessed with making people think the same as you."

Oh the irony telling me to keep my mouth shut. This new account of yours has over 1,000 comments in as little as 73 days of being created. How many accounts is that now? You also have far too many submissions to count in order to try and stack this account. This is what I mean by a professional forum member. One who floods the forums and wants to be heard above everyone else.

As for me trying hard to get people to think the same as me that is absurd. What good are forums if everyone had the same opinions? The difference is you have an agenda which is a far cry from an opinion. Do I call people sheep or PR people that disagree with me? No but you have. So it seems to me it is you not I who has issues with people that disagree with your opinion because like I said, it's not an opinion but an agenda. You pick on something you don't like and won't let go, and anyone that gets in your way you simply keep repeating yourself over and over again and think people are selling out who don't share your ideology. You sir are more of an activist than a gamer.

did you honestly think Ustream was exclusive?

people have been streaming live Call of Duty commentaries for years now on Ustream, from 360, PS3, etc.

I don't even know why I'm replying to you because you're an idiot troll but hey.

MysticStrummer1248d ago

Yes I too can't wait until MSFT's many porducts become visable.

yewles11248d ago

They never said Ustream was exclusive, nor did they say it was the only venue for broadcasting features...

CGI-Quality1248d ago

Yes, but logic is, often, secondary to agendas.

dazzrazz1248d ago

Cant wait until everybody gonna be playing hosting and streaming games with no dedicated servers.... lag fest all the way

jujubee881248d ago

"The fastest gaming network" in the world is now on Sony.

Gaikai was already in the Guinness book of world record, now imagine that combined with Playstation and Sony's networking power.

We are talking next gen.

Chaostar1248d ago

The provider of the video service was never claimed to be exclusive, what a weird thing to try and disprove.

The only exclusive part of PS4's streaming is the Gaikai tech inside every console that encodes the video in the background, if I remember correctly.

It's like saying 'if you can upload your videos to youtube that means youtube isn't a PS4 exclusive' well duh.
