PS4 Video Capture Will Work With HDMI

PS4

As has been officially announced by Sony, the PS4 will allow video capture via HDMI.  This came by way of Sony at the Tokyo Game Show, going on this week, and was later confirmed on twtter by Shuhei Yoshida.  “We announced today [at the Tokyo Game Show] that PS4 users will be able to capture their gameplay through HDMI output in the future.  We’ll update you when ready.”  So while there’s no guarantee that it will be present in the system at launch, and indeed, information suggests otherwise, it’s still promising to hear.  Particularly given what difficulties HDCP did to users for the PS3.  (HDCP being High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection, which is a form of digital copyright protection put in place with the intent of preventing users from playing pirated content – though instead, it only complicated the process for PS3 gamers looking to capture in-game footage.)  Going hand-in-hand with the initial announcement of video capture support for the system, with software designed so that no additional hardware will be needed to capture and stream in-game clips, it does signal a promising shift from the studio going into the next generation.

In related news, at Microsoft’s own press conference at TGS, it was confirmed that the HDMI port on the Xbox One will support “any HDMI device” – including the PS4.  Director of product management and planning Albert Panello explained it during the presentation, saying, “any application can be snapped to  a game…this could be the live TV feed, so if you wanted to be playing Ryse and Killzone at the same time, you could snap that.”  Killzone is, of course, an FPS series exclusive to the Playstation.

We are now some two months away from the launch of the Playstation 4 on November 15, and the Xbox One on November 15.  In the meantime, more details and goodies about both systems, and the next generation of games, are continuing to pour of Tokyo Game Show.
