PS3 Just Cause 2 Has Video Capture Built Right In

A game like Just Cause 2 is filled with explosive moments you'll want to share with your friends, and PlayStation 3 players will be able to do just that, thanks to a PS3-exclusive built-in video capture feature.

Just Cause 2 is all about emergent action, letting the player decide how he or she wants to tackle any individual task. This leads directly to unique moments of gameplay that beg to be shared with the gaming public, and Square Enix London Studios has taken steps to make sure PlayStation 3 owners have that ability at their fingertips. Just Cause 2 for the PS3 will include a video capture feature that collects the previous 30 seconds of gameplay, processes it, and uploads it directly to the player's YouTube channel, so when you do something incredibly dangerous - say, ramming an oil tanker with a jet fighter - you can quickly share it with the entire world.

For more elaborate stunts, the game menu will also feature a 10 minute capture option, allowing players to create mission walkthroughs, craft machinima, and otherwise eat up a lot of YouTube's storage space.

The feature is only available on the PlayStation 3, which means that if you own both consoles you now have a good reason to pick one version over the other. Perhaps Square Enix is hesistant to work on something the platform holder is already developing.

Just Cause 2 parachutes into North America on March 23rd.
