Sony Confirms HDMI Game Capture For PS4

Brad Douglas thinks Sony just announced that they are going to allow video capture of games over HDMI!


Adam Boyes has also just confirmed it.

Update 2:
Shuhei states it will likely be available after launch

The story is too old to be commented.

Lol so much for the haters now what?

OT:Man the good news for the PS4;just keeps on rolling in.

Its like Sony is trolling they let a bad rumor start and then poof out of nowhere they shoot it down.

ABeastNamedTariq1765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )

There we go, doubters.

There's your confirmation.

Hatsune-Miku1765d ago

fanboys of inferior consoles and systems will be crying. at least now theyll have to work hard again to find something silly to hate ps4 over

xHeavYx1765d ago

I think what Sony is doing is wrong, they let MS fans talk crap about the PS4 and then they burst their little bubbles.
Bad Sony! Bad!

miyamoto1765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )

PS4 is about Freedom of Choice.

but I will choose the cheap ass option- the PS4's own video capture.
My $400 will be bang for the buck worth it.

Go sony GO... LOL
Why say stop i am having so much fun watching sony back slap everyone else. LOL

The only thing that Xbox one fans have against ps4 is, " my Xbox one is bigger then yours", then they glance down.

jspillen1765d ago

Sony is running a well-oiled machine right now, and yes they probably are throwing out some chum right now to get the competitors to feel confident and swim to close.

And than "dong" ... "Scuse me while I whip this out"

Great business sense coming from there corner since Kaz Hirai took over. Smart move after smart move after great research based predictions, after keeping an ear to the ground and really, really listening.

I'm taking notes here at home... Xbots should be too.

Kryptix1765d ago

The funny thing is that Xbox fanboys will always try to find straws to grasp at even if it's just a rumor. For example, Sessler trying to blow the rumor out of proportion and making it look true though Sony already confirmed that it suppports game capture.

I think this was Sony's plan to stay quiet so the haters could have something to talk about. Because the guy that designed the PS4 (Cerny) already announced it a long time ago so we all knew it was possible.

MazzingerZ1764d ago (Edited 1764d ago )

It wasn't a big problem a week ago as only a few "care" about that support so this is rather good news for that people than a console-selling feature like many make it sound

Good for those that use it

r1sh121764d ago

See Sony is listening to industry trend, youtubers and gaming fans.
They have given gamers what they want.
I mean you cant say Sony are disappointing.

insomnium21764d ago

Holy crap! Another nail in the fanboy coffin.

Eonjay1764d ago

There is no way EA will keep Titan Fall exclusive when they see the huge market share they are denying themselves.

Some idiots even cancelled their pre-orders over this thinking it was true. Always wait to hear it from the horse's mouth. Or at least wait to see if there'll be some sort of reversal of policy. XBONE fans thought they could finally complain.

GW2121764d ago

@Jughead3416 - I'll start off by saying I prefer Xbox over PS. I own both but just don't like the PS controller (but jesus I love the Uncharted series).

Having said that, who the hell would cancel a PS4 preorder over this? Of all the cool things and crazy graphics abilities that the PS4 has and THIS would cause someone to cancel a preorder? People are tough these days.

Sony Confirms HDMI Game Capture For PS4

Well that will pretty much shut all the haters up. :)

Regis1764d ago


You are right, however I'm talking out of my ass and I let my ass do the talking it got raped by PS4

4Sh0w1764d ago (Edited 1764d ago )

First I never said ps4 wouldnt be able to do this in fact I said flat out that Im sure sony is working on it. What I said is if it was already done he would just go ahead and confirm it and this only confirms that I was right its not done yet which is why it sounded strange for Yoshida delayed answering the question about something already announced because many were expecting this at launch along with the other features Cerny and Yoshida promoted. Now finally the reason was because its another thing that sony touted but its not available at launch like on X1, which is why I laugh when people say X1 wasnt ready for launch, hopefully this it wont be a long wait sony isnt perfect they hinted at cross game chat for a long time before admitting ps3 couldn't do it. Its also funny how patient you sonyfanboys are when sony says something is coming in the "future" with not even a proposed timeframe. Anything said like that from micro is met with "yeah sure" or "when though?" or "they should just delay the Xbone" type of comments.

This is the true "It Only Does Everything" console.

except playing your old PS3 games.

Belking1765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )

It doesn't do titan

Majin-vegeta1765d ago

@ Wishing that's where Gaikai comes in so your wrong.

@Belkin Give it 6 months to a year and it will.You're argument just got shot down :).

jspillen1765d ago

PS3 preorders are around 3X that of the Xbone... Titanfall will be here sooner than anyone would have guessed.

Additionally, Gaikai comes strong in 2014. Really not that far off until we can play all the PS3 games.

Is the Xbum backwards compatible ?

allformats1765d ago

Oh it will, via Gaikai :)

Kryptix1765d ago

Gaikai will let you not just stream PS3 games, but PS2 and PS1 in the future. And it's one subscription for PS4 and Vita...they're bringing classics back. And you know what the icing of the cake is? Gaikai might add trophies to older games with Sony's patent created back in March 2013.

Knowing EA and the developers not denying a possible PS4 version, Titanfall will most likely turn out to be on the PS4. Respawn said that the only reason they're not doing a PS4 version is because they're trying to make the others perfect and flawless. They want their first game to give the developers a good impression. And EA doesn't like doing exclusive deals...look what happened to Mass Effect.

tiffac0081764d ago

Too much obsession with Titanfall for the X1 when its available for the 360 and PC.

Yes, MS platforms (OS for the PC) but you do not need to buy an X1 to enjoy Titanfall.

T21764d ago

Noone actually believed this was ever an issue except super trolls grasping at straws

MazzingerZ1764d ago

Don't really care about BC, maybe one generation back but not more than that, I like to keep the good memories untouched rather than ruining them with bad graphics and poor camera/controlscheme...most of the games have not aged well

Klad1764d ago (Edited 1764d ago )

Lol no console does everything mate!
Can PS4 play Nintendo's exclusive games? - NO
Can it play PS3 Disc's? - NO
Can it play Xbox Exclusive games? - NO

Is it a great console? - YES!
I am definately buying one....

But it aint perfect & once it releases your gonna start to hear some problems with it, just like every other brand new console release!! Then Sony & Microsoft will release a new shape PS4 & Xbox One & so on & so on...

H0RSE1764d ago (Edited 1764d ago )


"Is the Xbum backwards compatible ? "

Essentially it is, since you can plug your 360 into the HDMI-in port. This can actually be better than playing via the cloud/Gaikai, due to not needing a internet connection.

You could argue that it isn't "true" backwards compatibility since you need the 360, but the same can be said for PS4 since you need Gaikai and/or an internet connection. "true" BC would be the console having the built-in ability to play older games with no outside "help," whether it be hardware or software, and neither console has that ability.

That being said, it was also talked about older xbox games being playble via the cloud as well.

ShwankyShpanky1764d ago (Edited 1764d ago )

@H0RSE: If you plug your 360 into your Xbone, can you play the 360 with your Xbone controller? No? Then by your definition I could say my TV is "essentially" PS3 backwards compatible... because I can plug my PS3 into the HDMI-in port. Hell, by that rubric, I guess you could say that the Xbone is "essentially" backwards compatible with PS3, Wii, Wii U, and laterally compatible with the PS4. Impressive.

I think MS missed a huge opportunity on that, BTW. If you could plug the 360 to the Xbone's HDMI-in and control it with the Xbone controller, that would have been slick. I actually figured that was the route they would take, but no dice.

>>You could argue that it isn't "true" backwards compatibility since you need the 360

I would argue that it isn't backwards compatibility AT ALL. Same for the PS4 with Gaikai.

PS4: Cannot play PS3 games ON the PS4, BUT will play PS3 games THROUGH the PS4. PS3 hardware not required to play PS3 games (subscription required, subscription model TBD).

Xbone: Cannot play 360 games ON the Xbone, cannot play 360 games THROUGH the Xbone (you still need 360 controller). 360 hardware required to play 360 games.

Ah well, I'm hanging onto my PS3s anyway. Will be nice to still be able to game while my kids are watching Netflix.

iPad1765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )

One down, one more to go.

All we need now is that Sony confirms you can upload footage directly to YouTube via the Share Button.

majiebeast1765d ago

This was already confirmed the Machinima guys threw that in for fear mongering. Youtube upload was always in.

Deadpoolio1764d ago

That was already confirmed....A while ago if I am not mistaken....That is the entire point of the share button, it's not meant so you can just send it to your friends and watch your own game play footage....It was kinda obvious since it's 15 minutes and that is the exact length videos can be on youtube IF your not one of the ad partners

memots1764d ago

Where are 4Sh0w and ALLWRONG ??

pyramidshead1764d ago

+bubbs, because that's so true. Every negative rumour about the PS4 has been immediately debunked or solved. Sony riding all that good news to launch. Great news for LPlayers on youtube etc. Wonder what Sessler will say about this as he blew it out of proportion like any negative PS4 news.

sonarus1764d ago

Considering majority of us just play games as opposed to trying to record it I really never understood why this was a big deal. But for those who do a lot of video capturing i guess this is great news. To me the share button was already more than enough. But can't complain about more features especially features that are free and not hidden behind a pay wall

Sarick1764d ago

There where a lot of times I wanted to record my gaes. I buy them to play them. The last game I wanted to show a trick with was Resonance of Fate farming a rare item. I found a way to do it super easy and fast.

In my greater judgement I didn't have the resources or time to setup and record the 10 min playback showing the flawless procedure. So the public never saw my technique.

I was proud about the technique I figured out. I wanted to show others. Do to the limitations I couldn't. With PS4 it would've been easy to do without much effort. If it was on PS4 I could've just hit share and uploaded it.

Yea, we play games but we also like to show others our kick arse methods. Having something like this will change the face of gaing for a lot of players. It'll be like when PVR and DVR boxes where introduced into the living rooms.

Hopefully, someone won't mess it up attaching a fee to this like TiVo or Dish. Sadly I assume these features will be behind pay walls.

sonarus1764d ago

I have a dvr box but i barely use it. This for me will just be an additional feature that i will rarely use. Especially since share button seems so much more stress free

tordavis1764d ago

Sony flip flopped. 180 right? Oo

Majin-vegeta1764d ago

Nope cuz Sony never stated that the PS4 wouldn't be able to record over HDMI.It was the retards over at Machinima who started this.So no it's not a 180.

Magicite1764d ago

Sony is a killer and next-gen starts they killing season.

mgeezy3131764d ago

Bricks have been shat by all those poor doubters. Lol

MWong1764d ago

@ Majin-vegeta
Give them a few hours they will come up with something else. Haters gonna hate!!

Good news, not that I would ever use it. At least now Sony has stepped up to the plate after people hated on them. So far this next-gen Sony is like you want it, you got it. No Arabic, you want it, you got it. No HDMI game capture you want it, you got it.

Deadpoolio1764d ago

Yeah obviously now it's going to be derp derp they pulled a One80 even though they never said one way or the other till now

They are still using Titan fall as their ace. I'm pretty sure Belking is somewhere stating that Titanfall is not on the ps4. I wonder where he is at now?

Just look 9 posts above yours xD.

rainslacker1764d ago

When it finally does get released on the PS4, likely end of next year, they'll just say "Who wants to play that old ass game....HALO!!!!". Of course by then I'm sure we'll have plenty of other games to play in the meantime, because it seems that people forget that other games will release over that course of time.

I noticed that kind of happened with Mass Effect 1, but it was quite a bit of time before it released.

XboxFun1764d ago (Edited 1764d ago )

Combat? I mean it's not like we were screaming 8 gigs of RAM dedicated to games...oops.

How about the no FCC report....oh yea.

How about X1 not having hUMA...dang.

Xbox being sold to someone else....nope.

So you're saying the decimation of the XB1 in preorders was due SOLELY to PS fanboys? You're saying Sony fanboys were the ONLY ones complaining about all that crap? And that Microsoft CHANGED all that shit for the sake of people they know never had any intention of buying their product in the first place?

Do you understand just how ridiculous you sound?

"To the pain means the first thing you will lose will be your feet below the ankles. Then your hands at the wrists. Next your nose. The next thing you will lose will be your left eye followed by your right. Your ears you keep and I'll tell you why. So that every shriek of every child at seeing your hideousness will be yours to cherish. Every babe that weeps at your approach, every woman who cries out, "Dear God! What is that thing," will echo in your perfect ears. That is what to the pain means. It means I leave you in anguish, wallowing in freakish misery forever."
