Square Enix announced the PS3 version of Just Cause 2 will ship with built-in video capture.
Now if only Sony made this feature a requirement in their games.
less devs would probably make ps3 games?
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.
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...
you could upload clips straight to youtube like I think they are doing in GT5.
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.
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.
This is really old news. Was revealed months ago... @Omar There are such things as capture cards, and FRAPS you know
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.
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.
"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.
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.
@vhero Sure, they could do that...and cut their profit margins down by half, all because of a small feature.
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..
.. I second that .. it would be great and save on a lot of journalism time to. ;)
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 piracy...lol), 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.
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. @1 I could help but grin when I saw Peter next to the word "Sweet"
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.
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?
I'm surprised it wasn't DLC >_<
Here is a list over other PS3 games that support video recording, mostly PSN titles: Pain 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.
lol 360 would brake if it had that feature.
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.
xbox360 well go http://www.youtube.com/watc... if it had that feature.
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.
You're trying way too hard champ. Edit: You don't encounter females very often do you?
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.
Wow, nice one Assasin
Like always? Lolz
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 =(
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
great,ps3 should hve ths built in
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.
He just means that he wished this feature was built into the OS, like in-game XMB is.
can you point out where in the SDK that is? Seriously ... I want to know.
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. :)
Didn't Halo 3 have this feature? Pretty sure it did.
Lmao omar owned
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?
All this does is remind me that Square isn't putting any extras in the PS3 version of FFXIII despite having the space.
Moved into 1.
after the tremendous final fantasy sales awwww.
Finally, something the game deserves.
game is not on my radar, but this feature has been. it will be used in more games as time goes on its getting to be "only of the PS3" phrase is being used to death... I so wish MAG and Socom had this feature
planning to record those tea bagging sessions aren't you? :p just throwing a cheap shot but yea, all games should have this. it's a great way to record whatever; tea bagging, speed runs, etc. Even photo's would be fine (Wipeout HD took full advantage of that).
"Guess the 360 is too weak to handle such feature or there wasn't enough space to fit it on DVD, LMAO! :D" FAIL.....It's probably because the xbox360 doesn't come standard with a Hard Drive. Your statement is WAAAAYYYYY off. Thats where Sony was VERY smart. These systems now a days NEED HDD's. It's a requirement almost. Lol. Anyway, wouldn't it be great if all games had this? Or how about just games that have online multiplayer *ahem Modern Warfare 2...... It would be great if you could capture all those amazing kills without a capture card!!!! God knows we would see more amazing knife throws!
I'm sure most of you already saw this but for those who haven't this is what I meant in my last post...... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Is it 30 seconds or 10 minutes?
I am guessing that the developers had no problem implementing this can simply because all PS3 comes equipped with a hard drive. That's guaranteed. Perhaps more games should implement this.
Goddamn there is a lot of games out in March
GOD OF WAAAARRRRR!!!!!!!! Let me see if everyone agrees! I wanna hear it!
That's a cool feature. I guess this means that the PS3 version won't have inferior graphics and frame rates because they have obviously put time and effort into the PS3 version.
Nice. BUT will the game be good or will it stink like the first one?
PS3 BEST SO HARDEST!
I'm pumped for this game... i love these kinda no holds barred over the top type games
