Sharing is caring people. One of the best features of the new PlayStation 4, I think, is the ability to easily share in-game content — video, screenshots — on social media. It's this feature that Sony has chosen to focus on with the new Watch Dogs trailer it has chucked up on its site.
It's an interesting trailer. Kinda different from the usual 'I HAVE A SCORE TO SETTLE AND I'M GONNA EXPLODE ALL THE THINGS' trailers we've become used to, but it got me wondering: how many people actually use the 'share' feature on the PS4?
I haven't used it all that often. In fact, the one time I did use it was simply to bitch about something I hated in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.
My lack of use isn't really a sign that 'sharing' is a useless, tacked on feature — I think, if anything, it's the result of me not really playing my PlayStation 4 all that much. Mainly because there is very little to play on the console right now. In that sense, maybe Sony's attempt to promote it's 'share' functionality via Watch Dogs could be pretty smart. It's a reminder. 'Hey, when you get back to playing games on your next gen console — don't forget to share stuff'.
It's been a timely reminder for me at least.
