Xbox One will automatically record key moments during matches in FIFA 14, while PlayStation 4 users will have to manually edit clips from the last 15 minutes of gameplay that the console has recorded, EA has told Sportra.
Why the difference? Unless this is because the Xbox One can only record the last five minutes which still would require editing (fifa is a quick game). In essence 5 minute clips would be uploaded/recorded automatically
To be honest, I think that having 15 minutes of gameplay and choosing exactly what you want would be the better option. For example, it may record key moments on the Xbox One, but what if you wanted to include things before and after that critical moment? In all honesty, it looks like a user is trying to downplay the PS4(look who submitted the article). I'm not saying it's a good feature which it is, I'm just saying that I would prefer to have more flexibilty when it comes to showing videos of that key moment.
Yeah I'd rather have a longer record time than a game deciding for me what the 'key moments' are.
Lol wtf is this, PS4 automatically records ALL MOMENTS. Up to 15 minutes of what has previously occurred in fact. Why would it need to have an extra focus on stuff that you might not have even cared about? Guess the X1 thinks it needs to do your thinking for you. Sounds patronizing. On PS4: Huh? Oh you wanted that saved, yeah I got that for you. No worries On X1: HEY! That was great! So I saved it for you cuz you probably thought it was great too right? ...right? Also: If all X1s are gonna save the same moments then isn't that going to make it less special? You know, sense so many others will basically have that exact same thing recorded too?
"For PS4 users, this could potentially create problems during online matches, as it isn’t exactly likely you’ll be able to pause an online game and edit footage of a great goal immediately after scoring, running the risk of the footage being lost." First of all, i don't agree with this part at all. He failed to mention that you can pause the match as soon as you have possession of the ball. Pressing share button and choosing start/end points of the clip you want to upload won't take more than a couple of seconds while the game is being paused, the time limit is one minute during online matches. Second, if it takes more than 15 minutes to take possession of the ball in an online match, chances are you don't want to upload any part of that match.. ever. lmao
@FamilyGuy fair point flexibility is always better and with game capture more is always better than less but "Also: If all X1s are gonna save the same moments then isn't that going to make it less special? You know, sense so many others will basically have that exact same thing recorded too?" ??? FIFA is not a linear game with a 'story' so there are infinite permutations of matches/formations/dribbles/pa ssing patterns/stats/goals/play styles and such so others will not "basically have the exact same thing recorded " ...how could they possibly unless they all chose the same teams and pressed the same buttons at the same time?
"On PS4: Huh? Oh you wanted that saved, yeah I got that for you. No worries On X1: HEY! That was great! So I saved it for you cuz you probably thought it was great too right? ...right?" The same function, yet soo soo much spin!!
So having the option to either choose from the last 15mins or stuff that might be worth watching auto edited for you How is this a bad thing?? You guys make me laugh :)
It's just a system level feature on the One to set triggers and events for DVR clips, same as it can be done for achievements. I just hope it automatically deletes those clips off my hard drive just as efficiently.
There was an article regarding this feature. Tht the Xbox can be told to record certain events that the developer can pre-define. Same as the auto recording of certain achievements, again up to the developer. Another drip from the secret sauce. Shame I hate FIFA, and I'm getting a free copy with the xbox, how sad.
Submitted by ''Ksar'' oh well
Ok, so what? Is there something I'm missing? Are people to lazy to edit there gameplay
Irrelevant news article. If you think something is a key moment with the PS4 you can go back and record what you want.
i probably speak for alot of people here when i say, who gives a fuck?
It won't really matter cause Fifa 14 X1 is probably another 720p game while PS4 gets 1080P
Because there won't be any other way on xone.
Ksar is still allowed to do this crap?
So which key moments? Yours or your opponents?
ps4 records the last 15mins of gameplay at all times so it records all key moments ???no ??? i doubt highly you will go over the 15 mins of active play that makes you wish ps4 recording was 16 mins
I think the point is you don't have to go through the video in order to keep the good bits. It's convenient, but I don't see the appeal to watching back FIFA clips at all (unless "hilarious bug" is a trigger to save a clip).
And you really expect the console and the game to pick the absolute best moments neatly ? I'd rather choose what i capture
Personally I can't imagine anything happening in a FIFA game that I'd want to keep, whether automatic or manual. It's only pretend football, what can possibly happen that is exciting enough to watch again?
Well that's on you and your prerogative . The point remain , it's hardly tedious nor worse to handpick it yourself , especially when it's half about bragging and sharing with friends .
So, the developer decided to add this feature on one system, but not on the one that obviously will have a larger install base? Am I missing something?
EA last years worst company of the year backing MS next years worst company of the year ??
Total flamebait article(not surprising from Ksar), as the peeps above have said, PS4 is continually recording the last 15 minutes of gamplay, all you would need to do is hit the "Share" button, edit the part you require and then save to HDD or post online.
Technology. Why would I want to do it myself when the game can do it for me. Downgrade your windows8 to xp
Some would say that's not really a downgrade
Ummm cool, I guess?
And besides 15mins in a soccer game? Whatchu wanna record? The whole match? Football highlights are normally in the 5mins zone. And 5mins in fifa time is a half
New title "XB1 can not record by itself so the developer has to do it for you"
EA and MS are huge buddies now. Wonder what other things they will do in the future to make the Xbone version look better.
Oh my God. Just canceled my PS4 preorder and preordered an Xbox One because of this HUGE difference that affects everything. /sarcasm
What a great argument to buy XB1.. xD PS4 automatically records a whole match in FIFA 14, XB1 doesn't.
Preorder Cancelled. /s
ps4 automatically records the whole match xbone just the the best bits...? YEAH THEY ARE CALLED HIGHLIGHTS.....both versions will have them -.-
Ok and the sky is blue. So what?
I don't think is as positive as the poster wants it to be. The problem with the Xbox one is that it only records the last 5 mins which means you will not be able to record a full match which would mean constant pausing to edit highlights. The Ps4s 15 min record time means you can record a whole match ,save it and edit it later. Their just trying to get round a problem with the limitations, it's just being spinned the other way.
Well, Xbox paid for Ultimate Team Exlcusive Features, maybe thats another Business Decision they made.
Finally pays off for MS to have Peter working there :D
this guy is a joke! do they realy think that a damn video game can make a better job than the player at the time to chose the better momments? Hell, i want to be free to chose the moments that i think are the best! I want to be free to record my epic moments and, alson, no so epic moments that i think are funny (like FiFa glichs of Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo kissing because of bad physics! or other "lol" moments like "impossible body motion" and "rag doll players") And more! who the hell will stop a game to make edits? you play the game, after this, you make your edits, simple! this article is bullshit! I’d rather that Fifa saved the entire match and let me edit the replays like that. Having clips just wouldn’t be as appealing for me.
This kind of sucks for casual Fifa fans buying a Xbox One. Now they're going to get unwanted videos clogging up their non-swappable 500GB HDD. Hopefully you can turn this feature off. And hope Kinect doesn't take retarded photos of you during this "automatic recording".
From playing fifa and its bizarre highlights at the end of each game,I would far prefer to edit myself than let the AI record substitution after substitution coupled with the odd keeper save.
Because you have a dedicated button on your DS4 called share? so you can record all the match if you want and select what you consider key moments?, i mean i could consider something key and the xbone no right?
Everyone's saying it records 15 minutes on Ps4 but do we know that's true? Or does it record the LAST 15 minutes and then continue indefinitely. Has this ever been clarified?
why is this news worthy? MLB The Show on ps3 used to record 'key moments' in a game, then give you the option to save the 'key moments' replay at the end of the game. this isn't a 'new' concept
is this really important? will it change gameplay experience? lol if i want to record il just use my capture card..
That's great ! Now at least you'll have proof as to why your mate stabbed you.
Who cares..PS4 has a share button
