Shuhei Yoshida Confirms The Option to Livestream Your Face Together With the Game With PS4′s Camera

It was recently announced that the Xbox One allows you to display your face in a picture-in-picture fashion while recording gameplay, but it still wasn't known if the PS4 will be able to do the same while livestreaming.

Today Shuhei Yoshida confirmed that it’ll be possible. (PS4, Shuhei Yoshida)

How is it that every time Sony opens their mouth, something great happens.

But when Microsoft opens their mouth, you get a bad reaction from everyone?
TomShoe  +   542d ago
Because Sony has their ish together.

I hoped to see this feature on the ita too. :(
ChozenWoan  +   542d ago
Sony showed this feature back in Feb and it's News today... wow!

Just goes to show that a lot of people don't pay attention these days.
superbhoy  +   542d ago
im only getting a camera cause it comes with the big kz bundle
andrewsqual  +   542d ago
@ChozenWoan Exactly, we even saw footage with the person in the bottom right corner of the screen too this months now. How is this recent news?
MethCupcakes  +   542d ago
@superbhoy You damn liar! I didn’t get one with my KZ preorder.

"narly" lol, woah dude, do you like totally surf?! ;D

Only playin'! I agree, tbh, the playroom showed me stuff I didn't know this camera could do, so I'm going to get one now too!

If the novelty wears off for me, it'll still serve to keep the kids quiet. Hurry up PS4 FFS!!

I actually used the PS Eye a lot, kids enjoyed the few PS Eye games and had always a blast recording themselves with the differente effect on the free Eye Create app

Used as well a lot in LBP when tve kids created their levels and to upload videos to Youtube and Facebook, the applications SONY provide are awesome, simple, easy to use and FREE

I have never edited video on PC so it was really easy on the PS3, plugged in the USB with the videos and edited them for my wife that needed the for a course she took, I put text and all, her perception about the PS3 changed

Sometimes I wonder why nonone really point out that SONY really supports the camera in that way
ZodTheRipper  +   542d ago
I'm getting one too but only because it's included in the KZ:SF Bundle. But I'm looking forward to trying it out & I'm sure my little cousins will have fun with it.
XisThatKid  +   541d ago
Again, confirmed months ago right?

I've been using the OS cameras for ages so this is no exception. I preordered mine with my PS4 anyhow I like the 3D pic and chat thing.

The $50 Amazon Gift Card I won from N4G will go towards the camera.

Sorry about this reply, but that disagree that someone gave you made me laugh ;P i don't know what's there to disagree with O_o
XtraTrstrL  +   542d ago
LOL, I got 5 disagrees. Well, this is n4g, you know how it goes.
5eriously  +   542d ago
American juveniles hating the fact that you are going to buy the cam! LoL.

We must admire their attempts to troll....not!
Hicken  +   542d ago
5eriously  +   542d ago
Yep, American, the former eXBox360/M$ console stronghold!

Who else do you think troll these PS4/Sony threads. Most disagrees in the PSx/Sony threads happens to start the exact time the Americans awake or when the schools come out. Be my guest and check that little statistical facts.
Hicken  +   542d ago
... so, that'd be a four-hour window for schools, as we've got four time zones in the contiguous 48 States. Middle and high schools tend to get out around 3PM, so that means from about 3PM to 7PM Eastern time... but lots of students commute, and that could take an hour or more, so let's add at least one to this time frame, making it at 8PM.

The same window size is available for people with jobs, though the typical shift is considered to be from 9AM-5PM, meaning that window's potential would tend to start at around 5PM Eastern, and continue for at least the next four hours to 9PM. Again, commuting is a big part of our society, so you could easily add another hour or two onto that(probably more), meaning commenting as late as 10PM.

That's roughly 7 hours of time that you're saying is dominated by Americans commenting on this site. Almost a third of the day, and that's JUST for after school/work.

That's also excluding the ability for people to comment throughout the day with their smartphones and tablets even at work or school, like I sometimes do. This muddles the national makeup of commenters from any given time frame quite considerably.

Additionally, I'd be willing to bet that a large amount of positive posts about Sony would be from Americans. Not to mention that the US was Sony's stronghold years before Microsoft even fielded a console, and for a considerable amount of time thereafter.
FamilyGuy  +   542d ago
Always blaming the americans -_-
5eriously  +   542d ago
Do not get me wrong. I love America and Americans and their commitment to certain middle east friends. I have been there. Its just I find these N4G trolls in the PS3/4/Sony threads irritating and my perception based on timing and when the number of disagrees start jumping are that they are from that region. (wink)
Thatlalala  +   541d ago
Unless you have IP trackers proving this is the "Americans" fault please stfu, cuz honestly you sound and are acting like one of us, and there is only room for one. Ignorant foreigners. See....
xtremexx  +   542d ago
lol, maybe they disagree with the fact that you won the code. you should prove it by sending me the code for the gift card so i can confirm its real.
DomceM  +   542d ago
I disagree. It will go towards something else.

I won a $50 dollar amazon card from N4G at the start of the month too (I haven't actually received it yet, they said it would take a month to process. Did you actually get yours yet?). Getting a second dual shock with it, though.
XtraTrstrL  +   542d ago
Yeah, I messaged Cat about it like 2 days ago, and ended up receiving it yesterday. I won like 2 months back though, so not sure how long you are gonna be expected to wait.

Of course having a camera with your console is awesome now. Of course! (not to just you deadman.. in general in this thread of post)

Now people want to buy an add on camera and all that.

I lol.

abusador  +   542d ago
I knew it! And it is part of the reason I bought the camera, that and video chat.

Also I believe if you have a camera you'll be able to have a little screen of your face while you chat and game that others will see if they are in a sort of party chat. If you read the tweet further he mentions having your face there in real time although the author misconstrues the meaning of it.

That was a great feature. I dont see why it wouldn't be possible, especially with the fidelity of the kinect and the new PS camera.

At least I'm not the only one who remembers this. They showed it repeatedly when showing Knack being shared and when they mentioned that you could have someone remote play the game for you.
TechMech2  +   542d ago
And the best part! It's optional.

thejigisup  +   542d ago
Ps4- it only does what the ps3 can and then some. Definitely buying the camera with or without this news
Rageanitus  +   542d ago
Sorry live streaming your face is only useful when your talking on the phone with someone. When I play a game I want to focus on the game.

Maybe it will be good for lobby systems before you start a game.
fsfsxii  +   542d ago
You're not supposed to look into the camera...
Rageanitus  +   542d ago
That I konw ;) its having a PIP on the screen which is kindov pointless during a game.

I just would find it useful in a lobby before you start a game where your not focused on gaming. (something that xbox attempted with their avatar "lobby" room lol)
josephayal  +   542d ago

Another "unique" Xbone selling point, working on PS4?

This just keeps getting better.

It's been working on pc forever. You're trying too hard to find something to rag on
5eriously  +   542d ago
A troll is a troll is a troll and will remain a troll forever. PC trolls are even worse.
DigitalRaptor  +   541d ago
You have to understand. When I say "unique" its intention is ironic. In other words it was never unique to begin with, but even less so to the MS fanboys trying to paint this feature as unique, now that it's also working on PS4.

I don't need to look far to find something to rag on, when it's staring me in the face.
WeAreLegion  +   542d ago
Bought the camera for video chat and The Playroom. This is going to be awesome though!
tortri  +   542d ago
Well like in the demo they showed of him playing kill zone his friends face was showing and nothing else. That had me wondering either that was on purpose or that the camera can lock in on your face while playing a game.

As if Sony Japan takes the same stance as the Americans PRISM program. Cum now the idiocy are rife in that troll comment


To have live streaming "avatars" could be great but distracting so I hope it can be controlled. I do think tho it would be fun seeing the face of your opponent the moment you own him. That would worth gold to me!

Does anyone know if we will be able to use the camera on shared videos as opposed to live streaming? As in we could record a video of our game play but add voice-over and maybe even put our face in the corner of the video from the game? I would like to be able add voice-over to game videos I decide to share, so I could talk about what I did and why I am sharing. And it is something I would want to be able to do after I recorded the video instead of while I am playing.
