We reported earlier that Xbox One’s features like game DVR, Smartmatch and others were going to be locked behind XBL paywall, and while Microsoft has never said that they would make them free, it’s nice to know that video recording will in fact be free on the PS4.
Now how much that benefits Sony’s system when it comes to sales cannot be ascertained, but this will definitely generate a lot of goodwill for the company.
Sony world wide studios president revealed on Twitter that the game recording features will be available to whoever buys the base system. The DualShock 4 already has the share button built within so it doesn’t make sense to lock it behind a paywall, but still, it’s nice to see a company not trying to force customers into paying for every single feature.
We will keep you updated once we hear more on this.
