The exact number of minutes in which the PlayStation 4 will actively record, allowing you to then edit and publish that footage, has been re-confirmed as 15 minutes, clearing up any confusion over previous reports of ‘a few minutes‘.

When you do hit that Share button on the DualShock 4, remember that developers can restrict certain elements of each game, as Shuhei Yoshida mentioned a couple months ago. This will likely just be for boss battles and major spoilers, but it will be done on a game by game basis. For everything else you need to know about the PS4, be sure to check out our comprehensive guide.

In case you were wondering, the Xbox One records just 5 minutes of gameplay, according to Ken Lobb, Creative Director at Microsoft Game Studios.
