You heard that right folks, Sony Computer Entertainment is currently developing a system that will allow gamers to upload videogame footage directly to Youtube from within the games very own interface.
I think that this is a great move from Sony, this is the type of integration that gamers should be expecting. For all those people out their that don’t have the ability to rip the video directly from the game, this brings a whole new easy way to share your experiences with your friends and indeed the world. We can also look forward to the fact that we wont have to sit through crappy videos of people filming their TV with a digital camera, hooray for that!
So far only one title, a Japanese game called “Mainichi Issho” that is sold over PSN is announced to officially have the integrated functionality although from what we hear, the tools are very easy to integrate into games even to the point that it will be simple for developers to patch the functionality into games that have already been released. I hope that developers jump on this bandwagon and it becomes somewhat of a standard in any PS3 game.
