Sony is killing Microsoft at every turn…

Sony has just made an announcement that you do not have to be a member of Playstation Plus in order to access the recording, streaming and game footage sharing services that the console is capable of.

This is completely different from the approach that Microsoft is taking, which doesn’t really come as a surprise. I remember having to be a member of Xbox Live Gold services in order to enjoy Netflix on my Xbox 360. However, on the Playstation 3, I didn’t have to pay anything extra in order to enjoy Netflix.

Anyways…

Microsoft is saying that if you want to be able to record games, stream and share game footage, you have to be a member of Xbox Live Gold.

Did Sony announce this themselves or is it just another rumor?

Shuhei Yoshida, head of SCE Worldwife Studios is very active on Twitter and actually responds to questions asked by fans. Of course, a lot of fans asked the man if the next-generation Sony console would require users to have a Playstation Plus membership in order to record gameplay, stream gameplay and enjoy video streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, etc…

Shuhei Yoshia FTW!

He simply responded with a “no,” to the users. He even went on to say that every user, whether a Playstation Plus member or not, will have access to the functionality.

However, there is some bad news about the Playstation 4.

Sony has really won over fans with the Playstation 4 and it seems like they’re making all the right moves. This is very true, but there’s one thing that does suck…

Most Playstation 4 games are going to require you to have a Playstation Plus membership in order to gain access to the multiplayer functionality.

I guess this is a case where you have to take the good with the bad.
