Now if only Sony made this feature a requirement in their games.

vhero3221d ago

less devs would probably make ps3 games?

PirateThom3221d ago

Yeah, features like this require processing power and, if the developers can't fit it in without sacrificing the rest of the game, it's not worth it.

GT5 has it, but it's only for uploading replays, no "on the fly" stuff.

Raoh3221d ago

they should push it more as an option they would like devs to see more...

but sony doesnt promote their own features..

i'd like to see more games use the screen grab feature but they don't either...

talltony3221d ago

you could upload clips straight to youtube like I think they are doing in GT5.

Godmars2903221d ago

Better that they made it a feature built into the console - if they had had the time - than making it mandatory that devs include it.

Christopher3221d ago

I'm on the fence about Sony making things required. One the one hand, it's a nice feature. On the other, there are implications to be considered since it means throwing another item into the mix that will need to work on top of the usual game processing.

Government Cheese3221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

This is really old news. Was revealed months ago...

There are such things as capture cards, and FRAPS you know

GVON3221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

Old news,this was confirmed at E3.

"Yeah, features like this require processing power"

It's part of the firmware,in the UK you record with Play TV,and play games at the same time.It uses the same system just changes the input source.

Christopher3221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

Unfortunately, we don't have anything like that in the U.S. I mean, there are options for recording, obviously, but it's all extraneous equipment that has no other use than just recording gameplay and cost $200+ dollars.

Would be neat for Sony to put out a device that you could use to record what you're playing on your PS3 (just not DVD/BD) and then save it to a media file on your PS3. I'd much rather use that sort of device than the software designed option built into the PS3 firmware.

GVON3221d ago

"Unfortunately, we don't have anything like that in the U.S."

True but it was part of firmware 2. something,so any Ps3 with the correct firmware can do it.
Technically it's possible for any game,I know people who regularly record TV and play KZ online,even games stored on HDD work.Sony could add it as a straight XMB function.

The Happy Baby3221d ago

All the sony kids went on and on about how much they didnt care about it.
I think this feature is awesome as hell, and it will definitely persuade me to buy the PS3 Version.

mushroomwig3221d ago


Sure, they could do that...and cut their profit margins down by half, all because of a small feature.

D4RkNIKON3221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

Couldn't they use a cloud instead of the PS3's processing power for something like this? Doesn't Uncharted 2 save replays of all of your games to a cloud server?

If PSN Premium included access to the cloud, allowing you to save PSN games and even save replays of any game you play to the cloud. Sign me up! That is one advantage that Onlive has over consoles today, the ability to save "brag clips" to show off to friends. If PSN could pull that off with every game, win..

DW3221d ago

.. I second that .. it would be great and save on a lot of journalism time to. ;)

A Cupcake for Gabe3221d ago

Yeah, I have for years now, wanted ingame video recording. I know Halo and uncharted 2 have theaters and all, but everyone wants to record that fight against the final boss and post that on youtube/facebook, etc. I think ingame vid recording should come as a feature. even if the ps3/360 itself recorded the image on screen. so you could film, the xmb, dashboard, games, movies(wait there is the, etc you want.

on just cause 2, it looks nice, but I haven't seen much other than messing around with the chute and grabble so far. it looks like a 3rd person farcry. Ii hope it turns out good.

SilentNegotiator3221d ago

I've seen almost nothing but general praise for how this game is looking. But I know you're just feeding your mentally unhealthy obsession with "PSTREE FANBOISSS!!!", even at the expense of lying to yourself.

I could help but grin when I saw Peter next to the word "Sweet"

OpenGL3221d ago

Noby Noby Boy, Ragdoll Kung-Fu, HAWX, and the Pixeljunk games support the in-game recording feature, and Youtube upload. I'm sure there are a few other games that support it, but the list isn't very long. It would be nice to see more developers take advantage of extra features like this.

shadow27973221d ago

This game looks awesome. I look forward to a lot of fun sandboxing, and now I can record it!

But is it 10 minutes or 30 seconds? Is it 10 minutes for HDD and 30 sec for YouTube?

Buttons3221d ago

I'm surprised it wasn't DLC >_<

andron3220d ago

Here is a list over other PS3 games that support video recording, mostly PSN titles:

Pixeljunk Eden
Pixeljunk Shooter
Hustle Kings
Tom Clancys Hawx
Burn Zombie Burn
Grand turismo 5 (confirmed but not actually released yet
Ragdoll Kung Fu
Pixeljunk Monsters
Super Sonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battle Cars
Echochrome(japan only)
WWE SmackDown vs RAW 2010
Just Cause 2
Noby Noby Boy

Superior version on PS3, like always.

Lord_Ranos3221d ago

lol 360 would brake if it had that feature.

-MD-3221d ago

Brake - 1. A device for slowing or stopping motion, as of a vehicle, especially by contact friction.

Break - 1. To cause to separate into pieces suddenly or violently; smash.

AssassinHD3221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

Murderdolls does not have an intelligent retort so he resorts to correcting grammar. That is a severe breach of social etiquette.

In summation, it seems that Murderdolls not only lacks the ability to provide an intelligent counterpoint, but he was also apparently raised by wolves.

Edit: @below

I am not your buddy, your friend, or even an amicable stranger. I am also not trying very hard at all. You make it all too easy for me.

-MD-3221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

You're trying way too hard champ.

Edit: You don't encounter females very often do you?

AssassinHD3221d ago

Not that I have to explain myself, but I am married with 2 children. That is something I am sure is difficult for you to understand. Don't worry, you may think girls have kooties right now, but when you hit puberty you will have a whole different outlook.

-MD-3221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

Oh that's even better, you're one of those guys that couldn't cut it and had to stick to the first female he could get his hands on right?

I know your type =)

Cooties doesn't have a 'k' in it by the way.

Edit: I read your posts out loud to my 26 year old brother because they are quite possibly the most asinine things I've ever read on this site and he thought I was making it up. Your posts are so ridiculous that people don't even believe someone like you exists.

That must make you feel like trash =(

3221d ago
AssassinHD3217d ago (Edited 3217d ago )

That would be your much older 26 year old brother I am sure. I don't believe you know my "type" at all. Not to toot my own horn, but I have my life in order. I very much doubt that you do. I own my home free and clear of a mortgage. I have enough money in my savings account to cover a year of expenses in an emergency. I have medical, dental, and life insurance. My children are healthy. I have no criminal history. I served honorably in the military during war time. I am well respected in my community. I have no debt. I am a male with no commitment issues, and I am successful at balancing my work life, my marriage, and my gaming hobby.

That is my "type".

Edit: Oh I am 29 by the way. (Toot toot)

I wish more games had this

washingmachine3221d ago

great,ps3 should hve ths built in

Christopher3221d ago

Technically it is built in, it's just something that developers have to 'turn on' on their end. It's part of the framework code that Sony gives to developers. Same with in-game music and other features.

mushroomwig3221d ago

He just means that he wished this feature was built into the OS, like in-game XMB is.

DW3221d ago

can you point out where in the SDK that is? Seriously ... I want to know.

OmarJA-N4G3221d ago

Guess the 360 is too weak to handle such feature or there wasn't enough space to fit it on DVD, LMAO! :D

PS3 it only does everything. :)

-MD-3221d ago

Didn't Halo 3 have this feature? Pretty sure it did.

snipermk03221d ago

Halo looked and played like a PSOne game, so they could even fit a DVD movie in there and still have space left. Hence the reason it came with Forge. Pwned much?
