One of my favorite features of the PlayStation 4 is the ability to instantly share videos and images directly from the system. I haven’t used it much, but it feels great knowing that I can easily share my NBA 2K14 dominance mere seconds after finishing a game, whether it’s an image of my player posterizing Brook Lopez or bringing the Bucks back to defeat the Rockets down 13 with 2 minutes left to go in the 4th. With the PS4 selling over 2 million consoles since its North American release two weeks ago (following 1 million in its first 24 hours), the PS4 is definitely the console to have this holiday season.
Recently, Sony announced that more than 6.5 shared content has come through the PlayStation 4’s Share button. Through the Share button, users can upload their screenshots or videos to either Twitter or Facebook, or they can easily stream live content through Twitch, a video service that supports live video game streams. While the editing options are limited through the native Share software, it poses easy access for gamers to simply share their content rather than having to own a capture card with all of the extra, third-party hardware and software that was once necessary.
