PS4 continually records the last 15 minutes of gameplay, Sony clarifies

Confusion surrounding the length of the recording process arose when Neil Brown, head of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's R&D group, said earlier this month that PS4 uses a dedicated hardware encoder to continually record the last "several minutes" of gameplay footage. (PS4)

« 1 2 3 »
iamnsuperman  +   810d ago
and Eurogamer thought this meant only seven minutes. Confusion all around really. Neil Brown has probably learnt to be more precise.

Eurogamer is really the only one who was pushing the 7 minutes thing tho.

Almost everyone was correcting them and saying "nope, he said several" but they stuck to their BS.What Neil said was pretty straight-forward and everyone got the meaning of it.Eurogamer was just looking for something to take and run with it.

Even deleting some of their tweets of "proof" they had.I swear, why people take Eurogamer seriously is beyond me.One of the more useless big sites out there.

Isn't there a report that said it won't record certain parts of games. Like endings and stuff like spoilers or something? Thought there was an article about that sometime ago.

Ya right here...

"Rather than letting you record anything and everything, a developer can limit when the Share button is functional during a game. So if they don’t want you recording and sharing a boss fight, for example, they can block it." http://www.geek.com/games/d...

It's not going to be all the last 15 minutes every time. Devs will see to that.

@miDnlghtEr20C_SfF developers can choose what sections of their games can and cannot be recorded, including the end of the game and the bosses. Some developers said that they would include these restrictions near launch, then would allow full game recorded at a later date

the Share button will almost exclusively be used for multiplayer on FPS games

@Black-Helghast - Because it's EA, because the developers have hinted at it, and because it will.

On topic - 15 minutes was confirmed a looong time ago, don't know where Eurogamer pulled 7 minutes out of. This feature will help a lot with walkthroughs, gameplay demos etc, the longer the better.

You really should take what ever Eurogamer has to say with a grain of salt. Dont they have a show called Inside Xbox?? It shows you their slant on this console war.

Titanfall will come to the PS4. MS paid for a time exclusive. This is EA they want the most money and going multiplat will give them that.

corvusmd  +   810d ago
@Tochic as of right now the Developer of Titanfall says that it won't ever come to PS4 due to the PSN network.

ThatCanadianGuy514  +   810d ago

"Cloud" is just dedicated servers.PSN has Dedicated servers for dozens and dozens of games.If you really think it won't come to PS4, then hey, believe what you want.

All i'm saying is, look back to the comments xbox fans made about Bioshock, Mass effect, Ninja Gaiden, Star ocean etc.Wrong on every single account.

It'll come.No doubt about it.

Xbox One captures your last 5 minutes of play compared to PS4′s 15
andibandit  +   809d ago

you should really check what you are linking too, and read the full interview, heres the FULL interview

And the thing to note is that the things you quoted were said by:
Lead artist Joel Emslie...

and as we know Lead Artists have just about no influence on this.

if you read further on in the interview
EA Games Label boss Patrick Söderlund is asked somewhat the same question

"We haven't communicated anything on that, and I can't comment on that right now," Söderlund replied, before adding: "We're proud to be exclusive to Xbox."

so there is absolutely no conclusion to be drawn out of that interview.

Yes Mass Effect did eventually come to the PS3, and it only took 5 years......

PS4 will record longer, 3 times longer, but from this article the X1 will allow you to do voice overs and even picture in picture via kinect so you can talk and be seen while the video you recorded is being played. Sony hasn't mention that ability at all and that would be extremely useful for someone that's a little more serious about game video uploading.

So, unless sony has that feature too (via PS4 Cam) or adds it in an update, what we have here is a "you win some, you lose some" situation.

Either way I'm looking forward to this feature.

@Family guy

As you can see from this pic it seems likely that Sony will adopt the camera /mic capabilities into their streaming service. You can blatantly see the PSeye logo ON under the user window.There also the added ability to join or buy the game outright. I do agree that Sony hasn't official said as such but their is evidence to the contrary.

The XBOX One is only capable of recording the past five minutes.

Edit: This actually surprises me because i thought that due to its more complex operating system the XBOX One would be able to record more gameplay than the PS4 especially given the fact that the PS4s OS takes 1 GB of ram while the XBOX Ones takes 3 GBs of ram.

Yes....15 minutes is a bigger number than 5, it doesn't get much more basic than that. Dedicated LP'ers should probably stick to dedicated devices to capture footage, but for more casual users, 15 minutes allows a little more flexibility.

Doing what better? every feature PS4 has the Xbox has, and it is truly better on Xbox One. Seriously, What does the PS4 does better? They don't even have a better line up of games.
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   810d ago
Lets look at the track record of Sony vs Microsoft.

Microsoft has exclusives for core gamers for the first few years then totally drops the support for core gamers. Also only have about 4 successful franchises.

Sony has always supported with exclusives to the end of the console lifespan and has tons of successful franchises.

Sony has only announced 6 out of 20 exclusives to hit the 1st year of ps4

Microsoft has announced 11-13 out of 15 announced

Sony clearly wins with history on its side on terms of games.

They won ps2 era games and ps3 trumped 360 with games it don't seem like Microsoft is going anywhere with games.

Now on terms of what's the better system it cannot be determined until its out. This gen Xbox had a better online experience but it could be bound to change with all the new psn features.

Just wait and see
InTheLab  +   810d ago
Psn plus
Faster ram
Camera optional
Innovative controller
Upgradeable hard drive
No online brick code baked into the console

And most importantly, they never tried to remove my rights as the consumer.

As for the line up of games, you can't be serious. Forza is the only good game coming at launch but no one will buy it as usual. Ryse looks great but is already being panned by critics. Dead rising has freaking air strikes and has lost it's soul.

Every says wait till <insert gaming convention> for MS but Sony shows off two new IPs and Killzone and that's it for them. You don't honestly think those are all the games Sony has on tap for next year right?

Lastly, most of the Xbox one's lineup are games gutted from the 360 to fill in obvious holes in the x1's lineup. Should explain why world of tanks is all we get for the 360.

@andibandit, Kinect is terrible for games man, it just is. Even a more accurate and advanced version will still come nowhere close to replacing a joypad for traditional games. The sweeping movements needed for Kinect are not condusive to intuitive gameplay.

Besides, even though Kinect is with 100% of consoles, that doesn't mean that developers will take full advantage of it's capabilities...in fact, many will see it as a hindrence due to it's overall deficiencies for anything but party games, dance games or fitness games. Six axis controls were with 100% of PS3's, didn't stop developers severely neglecting it. Wiimotes were with all Wii consoles, again, most developers didn't bother utilising what it was capable of beyond the most basic of motion controls. Ditto the Wii U gamepad, ditto the rear touch screen on Vita games.
If you're expecting dazzling features with Kinect 2.0, be prepared for disappointment for all but first party exclusives....and even then, the Kinect controls will be optional for core titles so as not to bother people.

Am assuming all of that will be an option, I doubt it will offer the same quality as the real gear that can cost hundreds of dollars though.

I say this because I know a few Gamers that are expecting to buy a PS4 and become a YouTube celebrity using nothing but the PS4's inbuilt recorder.

You will most likely be limited to the PS4's average quality Microphone or some 3rd party alternative that will draw its power from the controller, hence limiting the possibilities for high quality voice recording.

The editing tools are still unknown though aren't they? MS have said they will use kinect for voice and camera support on Twitch but I don't think it's confirmed for videos. The PS4 needs to have voice (camera support would be nice) to be really good for walkthroughs.

It would be perfect if they could send the video to some browser in the PC that would let you add cuswstom intro's outros, that would really take off with youtubers.

Hicken  +   809d ago
Still not a good comparison, as the graphics card is something you can't exactly get with your PC, but something you have to go out and buy separately from it. PC isn't a standardized platform like consoles, so while SOME PC users may have 20 minutes, others will have none at all. But ALL XB1 and PS4 users will have the same amount: 5 for XB1, and 15 for PS4.

The main point is that all users of a given console will have the same experience regarding this feature, and it will have more recording time than all users of another console. PC users aren't guaranteed to even HAVE the feature, so bringing it up was pointless.
trafalger  +   809d ago
whats pointless is this whole notion that consoles live within a bubble of gaming when the pc also has a major fanbase of gamers. it is quite clear sony fanboys only like to mention the pc when its to do with console exclusives but hate it when the pc is brought up that competes with sony consoles and makes it look inferior.

for years the pc has had the ability to record video and programs like fraps can take screenshots, video and show the frame rate of your games. the only limitation is your hard drive space. the playstation 4 will also monitor what you record and game developers will have the option to not allow certain things recordings to be shared. once again the pc and its open frame work trumps consoles on almost every account.

Old news, I still wish they could double this, but this is good none the less

I just need to know if I can store this to the hardrive, put it on my computer, and edit it. And if we can use our headsets to add comentary.

I know both systems have an "auto recording feature" that has time limits...but if i want to record longer will the DVR let me? That is what I ultimately want to know.
N8  +   810d ago
I never record gameplay but this is a feature I will use often because of how accessible it is .

Interesting. Based on the article, Kinect X1 will act as the Xbox One's share button, difference being voice control and the other a press of a button. Love that each company is doing their own way of making next gen actually next gen in terms of console features instead of just upping the visuals of games.
MasterCornholio  +   810d ago
A button seems more reliable to me than voice commands.

But thats just my opinion.
HugoDrax  +   810d ago
Buttons also break, and get stuck. Sometimes people get sick and have a sore throat. Both consoles will have positives and negatives.

of course it does....

... I don't know if I'm impressed guys , I mean , the xbone records all the time... Whilst you shower , have sex , get undressed, argue , browse the web.. Scratch you're Arse , pick you're nose , masterbate.... Twenty four hours a day for the FBI..the ps4> 15 minutes of just gameplay isn't really cutting it..... :-)

had to laugh , funniest thing i've read today
mrmancs  +   810d ago
Cheers man , I do try ;-)

In all honesty, I just hope this doesn't lead to a glut of fifteen minute gaming videos where maybe ten seconds of them are worth watching.
mushroomwig  +   810d ago
There's an editor that comes with it so if people are wise enough to use the feature then hopefully they should know how to remove all unnecessary moments.
brianunfried  +   810d ago
Hope it can be turned off in the settings. Sounds like a lot of unnecessary wear on the hard drive.
MasterCornholio  +   810d ago
Can they store the footage in the ram though?
sigfredod  +   810d ago
Actually all the consoles reserve a chunck of HDD space for system functions, so even if you turn it off still will not have access to that space
Thehyph  +   810d ago
I would imagine there's a page file for the fifteen minutes of video that constantly rewrites. If you mean usage and not storage, then I don't know. Maybe it uses a portion of the OS RAM allotment.

WOW. great news. kz4 here we come!

i am huge xbox fan but for the life of me cant figure out how sony is using less ram dedicated to these extra bells and whistles yet is doing far more. its crazy how bad MS is dropping the ball this go round.
shadyiswin  +   810d ago
exactly what extra bells and whistles? ps4 is a ps3 on steriods, i want a true next gen system.
PositiveEmotions  +   810d ago
Than whats the point of having a build in dvr if you can only record 15 mins. Yeah 15 mins is s good amount of time but still i still think is stupid
RDF  +   810d ago
Such negative emotions from such a positive guy.
Burr_Rabbit  +   810d ago
It's funny to me. I myself am a PS gamer. But it seems like everybody else on this website is also a PS gamer. Everybody is always putting down the XBox and how it compares to the PS. Honestly, I think the XBox One is gonna go toe-to-toe with PS4 as far as gameplay and experience goes. I just can't wait to see what happens. :)
HugoDrax  +   810d ago
Exactly how I feel about this site. For example, if it was stated that XB1 could record 30minutes of video there wouldn't be an article to read hahaha. The only reason this article is published was because Microsoft announced their recording feature at comic con over the weekend.
ThatCanadianGuy514  +   810d ago
Actually, this article was published to clarify some lies that Eurogamer were spreading.

But hey, somehow it's all a big conspiracy against MS tho, right?

How do you guys come up with this?
NeoTribe  +   809d ago
Its called gaming news. Reason there's not a lot of positive xbox articles is because its hard finding anything good about it. They underestimated sony and thought there mindless fans wouldn't notice there bs.
mkotechno  +   810d ago
PS4 pwned XBO again:

PS4 can save up to 15 minutes without leave the game.
XBO can only save up to a half minute without suspend the game (and be disconected from online games)

Co co combo breaker!!!!!
first1NFANTRY  +   810d ago
So the Xbone records only the last 5 minutes of gameplay whilst the ps4 records 15.

Guess that extra ram matters huh.
-Gespenst-  +   810d ago
I really hope you can turn that off.
Baka-akaB  +   810d ago
why ? It's not ressources that's gonna be used elsewhere , and as long as you dont upload what's recorded you are fine .

I agree. I don't need anyone recording anything if I do not want to :3
-Gespenst-  +   808d ago
Well I presume it's part of the 2GB or ram for the OS and all that stuff, so yeah, it seems unlikely that'll impact on gameplay. All the same, it could still impact on switching form the game to the new XMB thing, as well as the XMB itself (whatever it's called).

Also why do you WANT it on? I'm never going to make use of that feature, so I may as well turn off. Also it's a prime means of data-mining, which involves a breach of privacy which is highly anti-consumer and very unethical.
SITH  +   810d ago
It is all great that either system can record gameplay of all games, but why not all gameplay in it's entirety? Worked perfectly fine in Halo with any length of time.
