It was revealed yesterday [via] that gamers will require an Xbox LIVE Gold account in order to record live video on Xbox One, despite it being built into the system. To us this story was kind of obvious so we didn't report it.
However it has came to light today that the same feature on PS4 will not require a PlayStation Plus subscription with Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida confirming as much on twitter.
This is one of many benefits non subscribers on PS4 will have over Xbox Gold subscribers, as services such as Netflix, Lovefilm and more are not hidden behind a paywall on PS4, while they are on Xbox One.
So is Sony just being nice to its customers or do Microsoft have it right? It's also interesting to note that Skype is also hidden behind a paywall on Xbox One yet is free to access on PC and even PS Vita, even though Microsoft owns the service.
What do you think of the above?
