Will there be HDCP for the PS4?

7 replies 109 views Edited Aug 10, 2013

I run a YouTube channel and was wondering if the PS4 will have HDCP like the PS3 had. I'm an xbox 360 user but have decided to go with the PS4 over the Xbox One. Also will there be some sort of component cables that will be compatible with the PS4, I know the goal is HDMI only but I was just wondering...

Yes there will, because of piracy issues. Xbox 360 didn't have it because it didn't have a way to play true 1080p HD content.

Based on what?

The Xbox360 had HDMI and didn't have HDCP.

Could have sworn I read it, but could be wrong

You are mistaken.

I know of several youtubers who record their Xbox sessions through HDMI

Xbox 360 enabled HDCP for everything except for games, whereas the PS3 had a solid HDCP cap.  I have heard that there are ways around both, but, that's not exactly a good idea.
