Microsoft’s Albert Penello has told Destructoid that at launch, any videos captured using the Xbox One can only be shared on Xbox Live. Sharing via YouTube and Facebook will follow “next year”, although no specific time frame was given.
Sony have also said that PS4 footage many not be uploadable to YouTube at launch although they have confirmed support for the PSN, Facebook, Twitter and Twitch.
Sony have also revealed that gamers will be able to use a HDMI capture card to take footage from the PS4 rather than use the Share button whilst Microsoft have said the Xbox One’s HDMI pass-through port will support “any HDMI device” – including the PlayStation 4.
“Any application can be snapped to a game…this could be the live TV feed, so if you wanted to be playing Ryse and Killzone at the same time, you could snap that,” said Penello.
It sounds like Microsoft are playing catch up on the video sharing front, although Sony are obviously still working hard on their sharing system as well.
