8w ago - Today a screenshot has surfaced showing the Friends List crossover from PS3 to PS4, which depicts a user playing Killzone: Shadow Fall on PlayStation 4, seen on friends list on the PlayStation 3.
To quote: "Someone recently leaked a screenshot showing what is the first ever PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 crossover.
As you can see in the above image, this is the first case of a PS4/PS3 crossover. If you do not understand what's going on in the picture allow me to explain. If you have a PlayStation Vita, then you know that you can see what everyone on your friends list is playing. The only difference is that PS3 users can't see what PlayStation Vita users are playing... yet.
This looks to NOT be the case with the PlayStation 4, because as you can clearly see, this XMB shot was taken from a PS3. It's only a matter of time until the PS4 arrives and this screenshot is only building my anticiption more and more."
10w ago - Following up on the recent PS3 MFW Builder updates, today PlayStation 3 developer Mysis (via tiefputin2) has been working on an XMB InGame ScreenShot feature which allows PS3 MFW (Modified Firmware) users to take and save screenshots in every PS3, PSP and PS Minis game except for PS2.

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.
