So, Sony announced at TGS that they would be removing the HDCP on video game footage through the HDMI output, a problem the PS3 currently has. This means that all the streams going through the PS3 have copy protection on them, so you cannot record gameplay footage from the HDMI without stripping the HDCP from the stream (technically not allowed under the DMCA).

But, the PS4 will remove this restriction, allowing 1080p footage of games to be recorded. Yay, right? Wrong. Sony, in their infinite wisdom, didn't think about this before production began on the units. So, HDCP is still going to be enabled on the PS4 for games, as well. At least until a firmware update comes out.

Fairly boneheaded when we consider that there are no analog outputs on the PS4... :woops:
