As the title says really. I know I can take photos of the screen, but they always come out fuzzy and I was wondering if it was possible to take a screen shot.
In some games you can.. but not direct from the XMB as you wish...
It's already in the Firmware. Game developers just have to allow it in their code. At the moment there are 2 forms of screen capture available to us. Directly from ingame via game coded option or from the XMB under photo. Both methods require the game designer to activate it. The PS3 also allow browser screencapture from the menu in the browser.
So has anyone got a list as too what games support it ? as i did not even know about this.
Resistance 1 & 2 - By way of PrtScr from a keyboard.
All pixel Junk games (as well as video capture)
Wipeout HD - In game capture
Hustle Kings - XMB Capture + Ingame video capture.
There are more that I can't think of right now.
Games built with this in their options menu are easy to identify but the games that support XMB capture are a little trickier. While in those games, hit the PS button, scroll to the Photo section and look right at the top of the list, if it supports screengrabbing then there will be a new icon.
