    PS3 in-game screenshots?

    Back a couple years ago, I was playing the demo for Ghostbusters: The Video Game on PS3, and when I went on the XMB in-game, I scrolled along to the Photo section to find an actual PS3 feature that let you 'save screenshot' of whatever the state of the game was before you opened the in-game XMB.


    Now it's well, a couple years later, and this function is still unavailable on any game i've played, yet when it comes to another game demo i've just tried (Mercury Hg), it's there!


    Why save a screenshot of you playing a demo, and not the full, actual game you pay for? Why is this feature even here at all if it's never used?!!

    Your thoughts?

    Lol seems pretty daft if you ask me

    It took pictures of Flow as well....not once did I look back at them and think "hey, I'm glad it took that picture"

    I do think it would be a cool picture if it took a screen shot of maybe you doing something awesome to get a certain trophy, if you know what I mean?

    I know some games have this feature, maybe as a built-in feature but rare. I never know you could do that via the XMB. In that case, perhaps Sony can make this possible for any game?

    I know you can take in game screen shots in WipeOut HD, but that is only during replay mode.

    flOw is different, since the developers themselves put it in the game as a specialty.

    They could, but they won't.

    The question is why it's there when it's never used, although that sounds like SCE, so i'm not surprised.

    Because PSN demos today are the full game when you download it. You just buy the key, about 100kb, to unlock the full game from the demo.

    Yes, but Ghostbusters wasn't one of them.

    Ghostbusters is on disc!

    It was a cool feature, being able to manually take a screenshot is a very good thing imo.

    QORE uses it all the time. Maybe it's something that can only be done on downloadable titles? If not, it's possible it's just something the devs choose not to use - though I really wish they would. Like someone else mentioned, it could be great for people who, like myself, write reviews, to get HD screenshots without the need for a capture card.

    Or as a means to capture screens to use as resources for wallpapers/signatures, etc.

    You can do it also on Tekken 6, but I think it's an in-game feature, like listening to music while playing.

    Well I know in EA sports games you can take snapshots and videos in the replay menu and save them which is really cool.
