Are Developers Ignoring the PS3 Screenshot Feature?

278w ago - How many times have you wished that you could capture a priceless gaming moment on your console and share it with friends?

Sony finally included this feature last year as part of the PS3 firmware 2.50 update, but nine months later there isn't a single game that supports it... not even a PSN title!

To quote: What is it that keeps game developers from giving us this small joy? Is it too difficult to implement? I'm no expert, but it seems to me like this is a feature that would be rather easy to implement, perhaps even after the game's release via a patch.

Another thing that baffles me is why does this even have to be enabled in each individual game by the developer? Why can't it simply be a feature that lets you take a screenshot regardless of which game you're playing, or even while on the XMB or the PSN Store?

You can take a PC screenshot in a game, while running an app, or simply on the desktop. Even the iPhone's screenshot feature works the same way. So what's stopping Sony from letting us do this regardless of which game we're playing?

Do Sony and game developers think that not enough people want this feature? If they do, they couldn't be more wrong.

lol fail news

HSG does also have this feature, since I've got like 3 SSs taken. It's underused, but some games use it. And I think Motorstorm also has this feature...

Wipeout can do this feature too but Sony should include it in the system software directly like for music in-game. Sony let the devs make how they want but there are lazy so they dont use them
