PS3 Screenshots... Why not?

5 Replies 2,517 Views Created 16-03-2010

How come we aren't able to take screenshots of games?

It would be sweet to take a pic of a great scene/battle/race/move you are doing and send it to a friend.

 

So why cant we :(

cause that would be convenient ;)

nah jks, i think it was planned for when ingame xmb was first introduced, but it was probably all too hard, especially for online, and in offline games it would be hard to remove the pause menu. so i think it was probably the best decision not to have it, though i would be a keen user of it if it was introduced

Its something that was left to game developers to implement rather than have as XMB functionality. Unfortunately not many developers took it on board.

Insomniac did it for Resistance: Fall of Man 3 years ago. Studio Liverpool did it for Wipeout. Naughty Dog did it for Uncharted 2. I can't see why others can't follow suit.

Motorstorm: Pacific Rift was another one that let you take in game screenshots. I loved the ability to move the camera around to find the best angle. Unfortunately it was only for the single player modes.

 

The R:FOM screenshots were a bit clunky and hard to get action shots cos it required you to press a button on a keyboard whilst also trying to work the controller (The Big toe worked alright here :P) But at least it let you take screens whilst playing online ;)

 

Those Just Cause 2 Vids sound cool, maybe Devs should try to implement something like the system in the SKATE series? Where its constantly recording your actions and you can "pause" and edit the clip any time you like. That would be an awesome addition to all of our favourite games and would make sharing those in game moments of brilliance (or stupidity) much easier.

The function is built in To the firmware The same as custom sound tracks. SD video caputer. in game web browser. The developer just neededs to select the box for each option and lose the memory from the CPU for it's use.

EA keep the copyright license and host the content online.

Rockstar do the same.

Sony tiles export content to the XMB from there in game library Normaly

Atari titles export direct to XMB.

Just a few examples.
