What could be said as another win for Sony was revealed yesterday August 7 when the President of Sony Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida, announced that a paid PSN account will not be required to use the systems gameplay recording features. The confirmation was publicized over Twitter after Microsoft divulged that the Xbox One will in fact require an active online account for the same service.
As established in the past, the PS4 will continually record video game no more than 15 minutes into the past for a player to capture, edit, and share all on the system itself. This prompts another hit against the Xbox One as it will only be capable of recording up to 5 minutes into the past without prompt. Although this will most likely not be a defining feature for most consumers to place their purchases upon, it is undoubtedly a huge advantage in terms of press for Sony and its PS4 console.
