TSA: "If you can’t share the last bits – and I appreciate this is publisher dependent – then what’s the point? Hey, look, I just started the game, watch me play the same bits you’ve all played? No."
Agree there’s no point if publishers can block it, renders the entire effort of putting it there a waste of resources. Plus sharing that last level or tricky opponent is just as important as that hole in one or that perfect lap. BUT, at the same time I have to respect what the developers do and why, because there must be a reason as to why they would do it. I am sure that most Sony 1st party games should have full access and Ubisofts games should as well, same with EA probably.
Guaranteed the lawyers of each publisher will have their say in the censorship aspect. Afterall, how can they make money off of copyright claims if everyone can share the content with a push of a button?
OnLive did it why can't Sony with PS4?
@Kratos_Kills: They probably paid to do it.
@DragonKnight can you re-word that because either you are wrong or what you made makes no sense
Its not like they're sharing the actual content of the game itself, its just videos, that of which has been commonplace on PCs for years. The Share button would bring the PS4 more inline with the community ecosystem of PCs in that aspect, but it would instantly lose much of its power and benefit if its restricted, in any way, in my opinion.
@iGAM3R-VIII: I'm saying the lawyers will have their say when the publishers decide to censor content. The lawyers are the ones that file copyright claims against youtube LP'ers to begin with.
I dont know,my rational mind is telling me to wait and see what exactly the restrictions are before I completely consider it a waste.But the other more "jump to conclusions" side agree with some of you. Theres so much crap I want to record :D @Dragonknight "The lawyers are the ones that file copyright claims against youtube LP'ers to begin with." No Not really.Almost anybody can claim copyright on youtube as long as you have even the tiniest bit of relevance to the developer & or publisher.The guy that was taking all of GTA IV , chinatown wars and vice city stories off youtube wasnt a lawyer.If I can remember he used to work with R* years ago and had no hand in making anything after gta 2. If I remember correctly.He was a complete d-bag :)
it gives the implication that there will be plenty who use it accordingly while there will be others who abuse it. Those ones that abuse it, however, could possibly ruin it for the rest of us. All it takes is a select few who have no regard for others and will share everything they can that may go against terms of service and the end will result in Sony either taking it away (ultimate end result) or a real strict submission process where everything needs to be reviewed by sony first. Its a great idea but one I am just worried will get taken away because some just can't help themselves.
As long as i can share me owning people on BF4. That's what i want to share.
yes, and we'll be able to share getting kicked for killing the host too many times, lets hope for some dedicated servers that will stay permanently.
Dude this is EA we are talking about...they will probably want to charge extra to that.
Multiplayer sharing probably won't be limited like single player. And that will be where most of the sharing happens anyway. It's understandable they don't want their single player games spoiled by people.
Yes agreed, Ubisoft already said that the SHARE button should get full access and I am sure most 1st party games should as well. Also I think EA Sports games should because of the genre.
Plus I imagine there could be some kind of time limitation applied as well. After like 3 or 4 months, singleplayer portions that were previously blocked could become available. That'd be fair all around I think.
But what about the point where you can jump in and take control of your friends game if he's stuck on a certain level etc? To be honest, I'll mainly be using this for multiplayer anyway apart from maybe games like GTA where some random craziness happens in a sandbox that I want to share. I have a feeling that the restrictions will be very limited; maybe kicking in when there is a cut scene or something.
Welcome to Miiverse 2.0
Must you troll on every article
Except there will be actual games on this platform to take advantage of it.
This time with games to talk about. Dont worry Pikmin 3 is only 3 months away, then you will have a game to talk about.
@iGAM3R-VIII I troll in every article? Show me. This sounds an awful lot like Miiverse because it will be moderated. Remember all the commotion about that? @majiebeast I don't even own a Wii U yet. My you guys sure are sensitive.
What a bunch of spoiled brats use consoles. Sad. Gimme gimme gimme. Take what you get. Be grateful you can do tge things yoi do these days.
Another person who trolls except this time either you are a PC fanboy or a Mobile Phone Gaming fanboy. That comment is just unessacary
What a mountain out of a mole hill. Not concerned at all, why should you be? The complaints here are all "what ifs".
I just don't see the point of restricting the share button. People will post that same content anyway using other methods.
even if they censor it people would just get a camera put it in front of the tv and keep recording that final boss, so what is the use if it's not gonna work? even if they put restrictions on scenes. imo, them announcing this and doing this will just fuel the spoiler community into doing the things developers wouldn't want. in this generation you see people uploading the whole game on youtube or streaming it on twitchtv,nico nico and ustream already..
Not sure how you got disagree there... Obviously every game is available to view on YouTube already
I say leave it up to the developers. If it were my game, and I was crafting some huge, cinematic experience, I don't think I would want just everyone sharing every last secret out on the net. It's probably going to happen anyway, but why make it easy for people to spoil plot points for your games? It should be the developers choice. Some games it makes sense for, others I can see them not wanting to let everyone share everything.
I think its mostly single player major story elements they are talking about blocking. Multiplayer should be 100% shareable.
Holy Jesus, can someone explain to me what's happening in this article? There are youtube walkthroughs of every game in existence, full walkthroughs and how is this even an issue now? What's the difference? None! And I cant believe you Sony fangirls are actually defending the decision of censoring parts of the game! What's wrong with this website seriously! You people all live in a fairy tale!
The only issue I have with your comment is how is it fanboys defending this ? I see two sides debating ... But you are right , everything is on YouTube , anyone disagree with that is naive
It's fanboyism because Sony Defense squad day that this is actually a good thing. Censoring is never a good thing no matter in what medium or at what time.
Nothing should be censored, if anything, there should be spoiler tags. Regardless, why take away features just because some aren't smart enough to not rush into every video/screenshot/comment they see?
