Why Streamers Will Love the PS4 Pro

The next PlayStation 4 update puts streaming front and center. Does this mean Sony knows how important sharing is to gamers?

The website is full of shitty ads and the PS Pro was released on November 10, 2016.

Sony should disable developer control of the sharing feature, it's useless and annoying, streamers just use 3rd party hardware and post everything on YouTube anyways.

Yeah I'm not a fan of intrusive ads. That said, isn't the article based on the recently announced 1080p 60fps patch for PS4's Twitch streaming community?

Why on earth would Sony do that. A lot of people use this feature.

I think you guys are misunderstanding Newmondays point, some games wont allow the PS4 system itself, to stream certain parts/aspects of a game, which is at the complete discretion of the developer.

For example; some games you cannot use Share Play with, or even stream cutscenes, or small gameplay segments.

NewMonday is correct. I first noticed this problem way back when Child of Light came out and Ubisoft allowed you to share video but not audio. The result was watching a clip without sound.

But the most egregious example I personally have seen thus far has been Persona 5. Atlus has blocked all capture potential for Persona 5 on the PS4. You don't even get to have pics when you earn a trophy. It's pathetic.

It's because the new system update
(5.0) is allowing streamers to stream in 1080p/60fps from the PS4 Pro.

I'm not clicking this click bait articles though because of the stupid thumbnail and I hate their ads anyways.

Is this the past? What year is it???

Notellin11d ago (Edited 11d ago )

No this is relevant although the title doesn't explain why. When update 5.0 drops for PS4, it will allow the Pro to stream in 1080p/60fps something that isn't available on regular PS4 or any other console at the moment.

The thumbnail though is ridiculous and pointless. The article is also pretty terrible. It's basically click bait so all you need to know is the PS4 Pro will have higher bit rate streaming which is always good.

Ahhhhhh Finally someone else that read the article. And read it slow enough to understand it. Good explanation. Most people think all of their streams are already 1080p60fps which is incorrect.

MagicBeanz11d ago

Its 2017 and had you read the article you'd understand this is about the upcoming firmware update that will allow better resolution and fps streaming on Pro.

indysurfn11d ago

Ahhhhhh Even antoerh one that Actually read the article. And read it slow enough to understand it. Good explanation. Most people think all of their streams are already 1080p60fps which is incorrect.

"Its 2017"

Two things. First...

Maybe if the article publishers put that in the title and added a more appropriate photo instead of boobs I would give it a try. When I see boobs on the thumbnail I know that the article has nothing to offer.

MagicBeanz10d ago


The "article publisher" isn't obligated to put your personal request for information in the title, you want to know more read more. Your choosing not to read the article and making a misinformed comment is your fault not the fault of the picture because you have some issue with boobs.

Boobs... mother nature's pillows

Anyone offended is female (which is good), or Gay, if you are please don't put down straight guys for liking boobs! If your straight think Boobs is perverted you have a sexual problem. Go to the doctor you need help, he will help you after he/she slaps you. Seriously it is not normal.

Now if you just like using that as an excuse to put people down then you have an completely different kind of problem. Don't worry Satan takes every opportunity he can to put people down also. You and him will hook up one day.

That and these idiots screaming at you is the only reason most of these thing exist.

thunderbird8611d ago

No, that anyone watches this shit.

shaun mcwayne11d ago

Woooah hoooaw look at those babys!

MagicBeanz11d ago

So streamers shouldn't be happy to stream in better quality because you dont like cheatcc?

SojournUK11d ago
