HDCP restriction no longer in effect for next console

Sony has confirmed it will not enforce High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection restrictions on the
PlayStation 4, and will instead allow users to capture gameplay directly through HDMI.

PS4 users can upload gameplay video via the DualShock 4's Share button, but this is limited to 15 minutes
The news was initially revealed during the PlayStation press conference at the Tokyo Game Show, and later confirmed by Sony's head of third-party relations Brad Douglas on Twitter.

I think we just announced that we're going to allow video capture of games over HDMI! "Details will follow soon."
It means that customers can attach video capture devices to the HDMI port on the PlayStation 4 without needing to go through any loopholes. Sony initially limited video content uploading to a bespoke 'share' button on the DualShock 4, but has now expanded those options by popular demand.

PS4 will release November 15 in the US and November 29 in Europe and Australia.

Sony's console will launch around the same time as Microsoft's Xbox One, which will release on November 22 in 13 markets including North America, the UK and Australia. The system releases across Japan and Asia in 2014, though Microsoft has not specified a date.
