No PlayStation Plus Account Required for PS4 Game Recording and Streaming

Posted on August 8, 2013 AT 04:58am

Yesterday Microsoft revealed that users will require an Xbox Live Gold subscription to use the Xbox One’s DVR features, and so naturally people turned to Sony to see if they would follow suit and lock the feature behind a pay wall.

Turns out that once again Sony is going down the opposite road to Microsoft and is allowing users to record and stream gameplay regardless of whether they pay for PlayStation Plus or not. Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida, president of worldwide studios, took to Twitter to answer questions about a possible pay wall.

So to summarize, you will not require a PlayStation Plus subscription to record and stream gameplay on PlayStation 4.
