I didn't post twice; check the time stamp. It must have glitched.

This was another reason. When I first heard your console would have to check in every 24 hours to even play your games on XB1 (btw you don't now for anyone that's wondering, don't want to spread untruths), I was like, "Are you kidding me. I'm not grabbing one at all."

 

We've had times where we did without internet and cable, and we had our consoles and movie marathons (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, LotR, etc...) to keep us busy. Yeah, I know I could just have played an older system, but I didn't like the idea that I couldn't enjoy the newer generation of games.

you rascal! Seriously, I'm probably most excited for a game that I was not planning to buy at launch and that is Killzone. I downloaded a direct feed at 1080p/60fps and the videos we have seen so far do not give the game justice. I also like how we will be able to create different scenarios and then share them. This game is a beast!

Heh.

 

It's a games console. I'm buying it for the games, nothing else. But I guess since it's linked to the games somewhat. the new friends list is nice.

 

I would have to lower the tone a little though, I'm disappointed by the recording feature. Needs an extra 5-10 minutes. 15 is not enough. and we know very little about it, does it go direct to Hard Drive storage? Does it force you to store it online somewhere immediately? If they can't higher the time limit they need to allow PVR's to record. Then again.. I don't even know if thats true. I heard it had protection though to block PVR's because of movie streaming services.

Link from the everything we know about the PS4 thread.

 

From the link:

 

While we knew that the PS4 would automatically record the last fifteen minutes of whatever you’re playing – so that you won’t miss out on any amazing moments you wanted to rewatch – we weren’t sure of just how long you could record manually for.

 

It appears that you’re only limited by the size of your hard drive, according to a commenter on a Kotaku article, as found by NeoGAF. He’s apparently working at a studio developing PS4 games and says that, as long as you’re actively recording or streaming, “you’re virtually unlimited” in regard to how long you can record for.

 

So from what I'm reading the PS4 will automatically record and save 15 minutes without our permission, and if we decide to hit record, it will do so as long as there is HDD space available. Hope this helps.

I wonder if they will allow recording to an external USB? Now THAT would be an awesome announcement! I have 3 or 4 1TBs that I could use.
