PlayStation Plus Won’t Be Required to Record and Stream Video of Games on PS4

After we learned that Xbox Live Gold will be necessary to record and stream video of games on the upcoming Xbox One, many wondered if Sony Computer Entertainment would pull the same stunt with the similar feature on the PS4.

Since Shuhei Yoshida is well known for running an alternative “customer service” on Twitter, by his own admission, many took to the social networking site to ask him the burning question, quite a few times. Luckily the answer is no. Yoshida-san confirmed that the recording and streaming feature will be accessible to everyone, regardless of their PlayStation Plus subscription status.

That’s most definitely what you call concise but sweet, straight from the lion’s mouth. If you were afraid to have to pay for PlayStation Plus in order to access the recording and streaming features, you can now rest easy.
