Everyone should be thanking Machinima for this. If it wasn't for them bringing this to awareness and let Sony know that a significant amount of their customers truly care for this, they would have passed this right under our noses.

They'll just drop one of these on the PS4 and have it all worked out.

Wait.. . Let me get this straight . Sony can't be trusted anymore because they might not allow direct gameplay sharing on YouTube!? ? So that's a 1+ for the xbone? ! Lmfao!!
Xbox fannies are getting a little too sad.. .. .
DragonKnight  +   881d ago | Well said
@P0werVR: No one should thank machinima for this. It was a non-issue. It was saying that the PS4 would be incapable of doing what the PS3 can do because of a feature the PS3 has that still didn't stop it from uploading youtube videos. It was a ridiculous rumour they started and is as bad as the "journalists" who claimed Sony were unclear about their used game DRM back before E3 even though they were 100% clear from the very beginning.

Machinima started up some B.S. and should be called out for it.
4Sh0w  +   881d ago
How did Machinima start some BS? Yes you should thank them. They said despite Mark Cerny comments reliable sources told them ps4 might not be able to upload straight to youtube via share button=rumor which many of you calling them out, and reported the news even though it was tagged as rumor, even reporting duplicate with failed news, see thats why this site is unfair because any negative microsoft rumor from lesser known sites still get approved and for the record Machinima was trying to reach out to sony and said they had been ignored and just wanted to help bring the issue to light so sony would know this option is important to gamers.

"Sony's Mark Cerny did include YouTube in a list of services that the Share button would support during a June appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon"

Yoshidas response is telling because if Mark already confirmed it then why the need to "update you as soon as ready", I always hear Yoshida is a straight forward guy, so all he had to say is "yes you can upload to youtube with the share button", what are we waiting for Mark already told us? If this was micro you guys would be on and on about them lying to us.

"How do Machinima start some BS?"

You answered your own question in the next sentence.

"They said despite Mark Cerny comments reliable sources told them ps4 might not be able to upload straight to youtube via share button=rumor."

Mark Cerny is the lead architect of the PS4. If he says the PS4 can do something, it can. Yet Machinima has "sources" that tell them otherwise? It's the same B.S. that every one does. Anonymous sources have made untold claims so far this gen and most of them have been completely false. Machinima were just waiting for something to pounce on. Machinima don't have any sources that have better knowledge of what the PS4 will do than Mark Cerny. To even hint otherwise is pure retardation.

"see thats why this site is unfair because any negative microsoft rumor from lesser known sites still get approved."

B.S. And if that happens, that's because the community put it through not the mods. If you think that actually happens, tell a mod about it. Rumours will be pulled if they have anonymous sources. Plain as that.

"for the record Machinima was trying to reach out to sony and said they had been ignored and just wanted to help bring the issue to light so sony would know this option is important to gamers."

They were being ignored because they should be. There was no issue. Sony already knew that this was an important option for gamers. For goodness sake it already exists on the PS3. What kind of brain dead moron would think that Sony can't possibly know that this is important when THEY THEMSELVES provided it on the PS3 without anyone even asking for it? Do you not see all the complete logical fallacies coming from Machinima? There is no way anyone with half a brain doesn't know that youtube is going to be on the PS4, Machinima was stirring up controversy. It has all of the same markings as the "journalists" who said Sony wasn't clear with their DRM pre-E3 even though everything they said at E3, they said in February at the their reveal. It's B.S.

"Yoshidas response is telling because if Mark already confirmed it then why the need to."

No it's not. You're reading into a typical PR response. Yoshida knows this is a non-issue, but how many people do you think have been contacting him about this? This response is a blanket, go to response to shut people up. Sony shouldn't have to make a response about something that's already been confirmed, but the sheer amount of A.D.D. from gamers these days forces them to clarify, and re-clarify, things that they've already made 100% clear. They must be bored of people not frickin' listening to what they say.

Mark Cerny confirmed it. End of.
4Sh0w  +   881d ago
Dragonknight you are delusional. Yoshidas comments clearly point to sony still working this out. lol, you say this is a non-issue and hes bored of people not listening so he takes the time to put out a statement that causes more questions when if as you say its 100% confirmed he could have said that and ended the speculation. In other words if you have confirmed something already and someone throws out a wild rumor you either dont respond at all and let your last official statement stand or you respond with a re-confirmation, or clarification, no way in hell do you say hold on we'll update you later if you know its absolutely not true. Sony will most likely figure this out but you'd have to be very naive to believe its done right now and the Boss cant say so. Its not like this is some secret game announcement hes saving for later if he had a solid positive answer he would say so as negative speculation isnt helpful. Sometimes I swear this site is like an alternate reality so I guess Im wasting my breath trying to inject some common sense.

@4Sh0w: No, you're delusional. You're reading into a non-response just like the "journalists" tried to claim that Yoshida never said used DRM wasn't happening in the PS4 in February. That was confirmed then, this is confirmed now. Mark Cerny said it was going to work. Are you calling him a liar when there's no one who knows more about the PS4 than him? Are you saying that Mark would confirm a feature that isn't going to be there, or isn't now, and risk false advertisement because that feature has been advertised?

"Sony will most likely figure this out but you'd have to be very naive to believe its done right now and the Boss cant say so."

Or you'd have to have believed Mark Cerny when he already confirmed it. Why should Yoshida confirm what's already been confirmed? Because Machinima thinks they're important and so started some B.S. and demand a response from Sony?

I swear, the amount of people who refuse to read or pay attention is beyond ridiculous. As I have said already, Mark Cerny confirmed it. He's the lead architect of the PS4, he went after these features himself, he would know what's on the PS4 and what isn't. Since he confirmed it, it's on there. Machinima's B.S. be damned and any person who is choosing to believe their garbage are idiots. End of.

This isn't technically a response, to be honest. If anything he's saying he'll get back to us once he has more information or any sort of news to pass on to us. Just be patient. It's not like we don't have over two months to find out about this.

But seriously I'll buy PS4 either way. I'm not a big uploader, but Sony should know better than anyone that gamers like options! Make sure the most popular video sharing website is an option!

Whats the use of the share button then ?
Mr_Danski  +   881d ago
It shares whatever you upload to your friends on the PS4.

Or so I'm guessing from what we've seen so far at least.

You could potentially upload a lets play on your own PS4 like channel, that only your PS4 friends could see etc. i could be wrong, i've no idea if there is a storage limit and such.
SuperLupe  +   881d ago
Thought you could at least share to facebook via Youtube. This sucks.
thehitman  +   881d ago
You can upload to facebook, ustream, twitch so after it gets there even if they dont formally support youtube you can then go on your pc and access w/e content you uploaded and edit it and re upload it to youtube. Sure its an extra process but regardless there will be a way. I am sure though they will do something about it if they havent already.
KwietStorm  +   881d ago
I'm guessing you're being sarcastic or rhetorical. We all know YouTube is a big thing, but the Share button is not synonymous with YouTube. There are clearly other options that have already been detailed. Now we're just waiting for confirmation on more options.
crillinFLIP337  +   881d ago
Share button uploads the clips to psn, ustream, and twitch. Also able to share on facebook and twitter. Only one that is left out is youtube.

Dude, you've posted that same vlog from your Youtube channel on every N4G submission involving this issue. Give it a rest.

OT: It'd be very odd to see Sony not do this, so the fact that Yoshida is addressing it shows that it is a legitimate concern to them. That's a good sign of good news.

It led me to information that calmed my worries. I was using that as a reference to say if I didn't win I'd still be in the same boat as the people worrying too much. Isn't so hard to figure out but again this is N4G.
DragonKnight  +   881d ago
You have to admit that it looks like you shoehorned that in there to give yourself a pat on the back. The information you say you were led to as a result of winning the contest already existed prior to that.

Also, given how often you say "but this is N4G," the question has to be asked. Why are you even here then? And don't bother saying "because I like having all this information in one place" because you don't need to comment on a site in order to see the information you like.

i would prefer to just load it to facebook for my friends and family to see. get in on the action and even shoot the shit with me.

I really don't care if amhamad bashar blah blah blah from another side of the whole world sees me and my buddies having a blast. I think its alot cooler that my mom who lives 1000 miles from me can jump in my game from facebook to remind me to go to bed cause i got work in the morning. Anyone that is freakin out about the vid cap already knows how to work around it, if its that big a deal. As for the average gamer, we just regular social media sites.

honestly I think its bullshit that you have to pay for a PlayStation Plus subscription to play online I don't like that it was free before and should stay the same regardless
bromtown  +   881d ago
It was free and poor, I'd rather pay and it be good. Also, it's still cheaper than Xbox Live and you get a lot more benefits from being a PS Plus member than you do from Xbox Live Gold status.
Getting Gold on a Xbox is basically paying a ransom to have access to a load of the features (streaming services, Game DVR, TV guide, Internet explorer etc) whereas on the PS4 you have access to everything without a paid account, streaming services (including Free to play online multiplayer games), browser, game capture and sharing etc. You only need Plus to play multiplayer on retail and paid PSN games and with the amount of free stuff you get it in a year it more than pays for itself.

I'm not the most affluent person in the world and I've had PS Plus since it launched, and you don't even need it on PS3. It's just excellent value.
DragonKnight  +   881d ago
@xc7x: I'll be sure to tell someone they're off topic by staying on topic. Because that'll work so well.

@bromtown: I wasn't talking about you, though I can see how you may think I was. My bad on that, but I was addressing thinktwice.
DragonKnight  +   881d ago
Could you be any more off topic? Well, actually you could but this was still a pointless comment to make considering that paying for PS+ has literally nothing to do with the topic at hand and you just felt like b*tching about something.
xc7x  +   881d ago
way to tell off someone theyre off topic by going off topic yourself,by the way im off topic too :p

i agree with you,PS+ should be an option,not mandatory to play online. one mans view of it as an excellent value is another mans view of it as meh
bromtown  +   881d ago
I was just replying to the above comment, that's how conversation works doesn't it - someone says something and you carry on on the same topic. He mentioned having to get PS Plus, I talked about it too. Anyway, not bitching about it, well I suppose I am, but it's all true either way.

I'll consult you next time before I dare reply to something.
bromtown  +   881d ago
I'm sure they'll just turn off HDCP on gameplay by default like MS do and maybe leave it up to developers to turn it back on if they really want to. I think that's what Shu was alluding too more than the straight to YouTube via the share button which is probably pretty simple as they've already added twitch recently.

It's very simple to read up on it. Despite the name, it does plenty besides sharing videos online. But then if you don't understand all the functions of the share button by now, I would suggest you have no interest in PS4.

That means you're trolling, which is very much in keeping with your comment history. Please stop. Thanks. :)

IF they do have HDCP on the PS4. The solution is simple and actually better then using a HDPVR directly.

Get a HDMI splitter from ebay (15$ USD).

I took the time to make a diagram of how it works, very simple to do.

and that all is you need. Some people will say you need a HDMI to DVI cable, a HDMI TO DVI converter box, and about 120 dollars worth of extra stuff but you really dont. All you need is 15-20$ (USD) I've been doing it for over 8 months it was 15 dollars and it has NO audio Delay NO latency issues, and no loss in quality (since its powered)

This will work on the PS4 as well IF it is the case.

If it's a copyright issue ... where other entities then stand to be making money off of the game developers... I understand.

This is new territory in digital media and sharing so I it makes sense to work it out with the long-term in mind.

So many great game developers have been fighting to stay in business the last few years. I'd rather the games stay strong and see Gamestop take the hit. Let's keep the $10 online fee so that Gamestop has to bring down their profits.
