PS4 gets another leg up on Xbox One; won’t require PS Plus subscription for streaming and sharing gameplay videos

The news comes directly from the Twitter account of Sony Worldwide Studios President, Shuhei Yoshida. He personally replied to multiple queries from gamers asking if they would have to pay for PlayStation Plus in order to record, live-stream and share gameplay videos.
