GamesRadar - The PS4 Share Button is an amazing thing. Designed to incorporate the best of social networking and video streaming into one place, it is one of PS4’s biggest selling points.
That would be nice.

Thanks, I hate when sites multipage these list just for more hits. OT, I'm really looking forward to the share functionality of share button and what all it entails.
Really appreciate that. What ever happened to 1 or 2 page list?
Good on ya. I refuse to play along with lists presented like that. Some of those look like minor variations of others but I think it's clear the Share button will get a lot of use.
No offence but are you willing to pay for all them features
Thanks for this. 'Oh, I have to click 17 pages?' *closes site*.
i never had doubt the share button would strictly be tied to FB, there will be many uses for it across more platfroms then just fb
I'm interested to know if you can use the share button with any ps1,2,3 games that are streamed over gaikai? They say you can stream every PlayStation game from all the consoles. Does this also mean I could record myself playing colony wars for example? Could I stream live myself playing metal gear solid 3? If you can do those things with ps4 games, surely the capability is there to do it with the older games. Would be an exciting prospect
Would also be interesting if we can capture movies/tv shows.
You can do that with ps3 right now if you have a PlayTV box. Though I think this is a European only product. It lets you watch tv through your ps3, record it and stuff. But I reckon the share button on ps4 would be for game usage, all sorts of legal things would crop up if Sony allowed us to stream movies
Oh, i didn't mean a full show. Just like cropping a trailer together or showing your favourite part. YouTube is full of them so wouldn't think it'd be a huge issue.
Gave an agree for mentioning Colony Wars. One of many IP's i wanted a new game since the PS1 days.
I'm dying to press that Share button to see what happens. Yep, that's how exciting my life is right now. Pressing a friggin' button is on my 'to do' list!

I woke up the other day and immediately stepped in cat sick. You're 1 up on me
try stepping on a wasp sting bare foot....the same wasp you killed an hour beforehand.. I learnt a lesson that day Im interested to see what this share button will add in real terms. We've all done some amazing things in games that we just wished we could show to others...this should make it easier. lets hope sony force it on their devs like how ms forced key features for live on devs. If most of these features could be implemented and used just using the console itself then that'll be even better
I can think of some pretty sweet tricks i've done on PS2 with Tony Hawk which'd been great to capture.
15 uses I will NEVER use.
Perhaps a Whine button would suit you better.
I'm looking forward to the 720's controller A tv remote with a 'play games' button on it
Haha, a button ? No way that'll happen. I'm sure Kinect 2.0 will recognize when you flip the remote 90° that its game time.
On Xbox 720, you are no longer the controller, you are the game. MS plays you through Kinect.
@BitbyDeath, they've had that for years in Soviet Russia.
You can't use it if you won't buy it, so I guess you're right...
Do not assume.....
Will if I want ;P I'm sorry, but you can't tell me that anybody that buys PS4 isn't going to press the 'share' button at least once. You're just being grumpy for no good reason and it's getting old now. Cheer the eff up lol
Huhuh, hey Butt-Head, you said ass...Huhuhuh
I hope Home stays in the PS3. That thing never worked as intended and is a "waste" of resources that could be use to develop new IPs or at least for marketing. PS Home was a good experiment. One that failed, but was good to have for some time.
Millions of people use it. I don't use it much myself but don't see why it can't continue just cause i'm not a regular user.
Don't bet on it. Home makes way too much money for Sony, and it has a lot of regular users. Saying it failed is ignoring reality. It's not a waste of resources because it made it's dev costs back within a month after the beta opened. Just think of Home as a game series you never buy but many others like. It's not going away, so get used to it.
Home is a way to interact with others PS3 users. That's the whole point about Home. I met more people in HOME, more then people in online multiplayer games.
PS4 is freakin awesome!
call it the greatest innoation since 3d Polygon characters, it can have some really cool uses. The PS Home ideas are great, playing highlights during loading screens would be cool, A sports game with a fake sportscenter playi the top ten highlights of the week or month voted on by the online community, making the countdown can get you a trophy or another bonus. Any screen gaming, would be cool also. The idea I had is already being used by capcom, I just hope they impliment it in a fun way. When Blanka asks for items, it should be dropped into the game so the player has to go get it, not instantly placed in the players inventory, that would be cool.
There should be a feature with the share button to send a video of someone cheating right to Sony.
The report feature is interesting. It would be easy to report and prove bad behaviour. Would probably clean up alot of crap.
#7, 11, 13, and 14 are pretty intriguing.
I would love to be able to browse the internet without having to quit the game...just pause the game open a tab without having to go to the dashboard and go to youtube to find how to do a trophy or watch porn a little,whatever u wanna do ..that would be amazing :)
I like the new share button and feature. Its like Sony heard the cries of the cheap folks like me who cant afford game recorders and just fixed that into the PS4 :D
