Is it possible to take screen shots on my PS3?

32 Replies 67,905 Views Created 18-02-2010

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.

 

Thanks.

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.

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.

Below is a Signature



Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

I can't find either option now.  I wonder if both the XMB and Browser options have been removed now. To encourage us to buy the PS4 maybe?

As above but extra

 

Battlefield BC1 (EA)

Midnight club. 

NFS MW2 (AKA NFS Undercover) (EA)

Ghostbusters.( XMB photo mode...You get killed trying to use the first few times. )

Flow expansion. ( In game feature )

Eyepet. ( In game feature )

HOME ( In game feature )

 

EA own all photos taken under copyright on EA games. So require automatic upload to their EA Nation Site for access..

 

 Its allready in the PS3 firmware ( since Resistance1 update) but is allowed to be Altered to fit the developers way of using it in game.

You can also do it in MLB 11: The Show, but I don't know if any of the ones do it.
