Why is Adam Sessler tweeting about being afraid and having to leave the industry?

If it has nothing to do with the Xbox why the hell would Sessler be sad about? Just record that shit on Xbox, who gives a fuck. Unless it's youtube who's putting the brakes, that would be bad.
 
My guess is Sony is not allowing smaller media to capture or put videos on video sites...?
I'm basing that speculation on bigger sites like IGN and Gamspot mentioning that they're going to have PS4 reviews soon.

Altho that doesn't explain why not X1 version games are under embargo til near launch, but this might be totally separate thing.
I think the X1 embargos is a different thing. All the speculation right now is mostly related to how video is captured from a particular console.
 
So why is only Sessler upset about this if it is a global policy change from YT or Sony?
Yeah, I heard a lot of people upset, like in waves. The thing that makes me think youtube is that Sess is clearly the most upset of them all. And he WANTS to make video. A while back I hear that if not for REV 3 he would go into corporate banking or law or something.

So, maybe he thinks if the youtube loophole is closes, he is out of it.

"playing" dumb? unpossible
My money is on EA doing something fucked up. They're always the ringleader when it comes to industry fuckery. Got to make that "Worst Company in America" badge worth something lol

Wait! The PS4 wont allow direct capture? What is the reasoning behind this if it has built in streaming and youtube uploads?
Yes and No. Right now, out of the box, there's HDCP, so no one can do direct capture.

But Sony already announced they'll strip the HDCP out with a patch after launch.
 
I really like Adam Sessler. I usually agree with what he has to say 99% of the time and he seems like an all around very educated person and is well spoken when it comes to getting a point across. With that said, I will be pretty sad if he leaves the industry.

It is easy enough to strip it yourself, and someone like Sess could easily do it. So I doubt it has to do with HDCP.

I guess I could see that but have they ever made any mention at all with their games being recorded? The only company I know for sure that does is Nintendo, if I remember correctly.

If Sony and Microsoft had issues, then why make it so easy to record on their consoles in the first place? Then again, I could be missing the entire point.

Doesn't make sense. Sony has been promoting the ability of literally anyone to post game content to social media with the push of a button.

Probably because there isn't one. Most likely he just didn't get a PS4 dev kit and just doesn't know that there are cheap HDMI splitters which can easily strip HDCP.
Which is in violation of federal US law, and would be massively illegal to to on a widespread scale.

helped a brotha out on multiple separate occasions!

It doesn't have component video and the launch firmware has HDCP enabled for everything. They've said they're gonna remove HDCP for games in a future update but they haven't given an ETA so the only way to direct capture till then is by using an HDCP stripper.
 
If it's restrictions on using captures of games in video reviews and whatnot...
Do journalists have any legal grounds to sue companies putting such restrictions?

And what would the legal issues really be if they're stripping HDCP? I doubt that Sony would threaten legal action for a review site doing something that they're going to patch into their system anyway.
