PS3 Version Of Just Cause 2 Will Boast Exclusive Features

If there's one game you probably shouldn't ignore, it's Just Cause 2. Developer Avalanche seems to have built upon the solid and very promising foundation established in the original title, which was admittedly lacking in execution.

And now, it seems they've put a little extra effort into the PlayStation 3 version, although until we hear straight from the designers themselves, we can only call this secondary information. But anyway, they recently held an event in London where it was apparently announced that the PS3 version will feature the following special features:

  • Video capture feature
  • Can auto-record/record last 30 seconds of gameplay
  • Manual record up to 10 minutes
  • Can transfer directly to YouTube

We have seen other multiplatform titles boast features exclusive to the PS3 version in the past but most times, the PS3 version of whatever game came out after the Xbox 360 version. In this case, we're looking at a simultaneous launch for both versions and yet, it appears as if the PS3 version is getting this bonus content. Why? We haven't the slightest idea; perhaps they just found the PS3 more accessible for these features, or something. Well, whatever the reason, I'm sure PS3 owners everywhere will be appreciative.

Very nice!

Gran Turismo 5 will also have this video recording system, and then you can upload to youtube!

ps3 IS the future. Can't wait to see more games allowing this!

Sadly, not really interested in this game. Awesome for those who are though

The first one escaped my notice completely, but I like the trend of PS3 games finally taking advantage of the system and doing more with it in the multiplat arena. Especially when it isn't as a "sorry" for giving us the game so late nobody cares anymore.

I wouldn't be suprised if this had to do with Square Enix given the fact they are now calling the shot.

"Gran Turismo 5 will also have this video recording system, and then you can upload to youtube!"

GT5 recording system isn't new as the feature is also in GT3 and Tourist Tourist; the latter allowed you to upload your stuff to a website via USB drive.

Isn't this being put out by Eidos (or Square Enix now; whatever)? And Eidos also released Batman: Arkham Asylum, correct? That game was loaded with PS3 goodies, too. Seems like Eidos has a favorite system. =P

I care! I don't want a repeat of Team Fortress 2! :(
Their checkbook? Nope! I guess you never heard?
Yeah, the developers of cross-platform games are offering some kind of contest to see who can fill up all of the Blu-ray disk with excellence while still releasing their game on the "other console."
Naughty Dog accepted this contest with Uncharted 2, but they never won because they realized that only a third of their game would fit on the "other console."
That's why a lot of new games will have exclusive PS3 content.

(This Was A Joke, Don't Take It Seriously)

-Wiiplay.


(Message Has Been Edited By The Maker Of The "Other Console." The "Other Console's" Maker Has Also Told Me To Not Say The Name Of The "Other Console's" Maker Due To Trade Marks. I Can However Say That The X Shaped Box I Bought That Contained 360 Peanuts Broke Today From Falling Out Of The Window After Receiving The Red Circle Of Death)


(I Have Just Received Another Warning That Both Red Ring Of Death and Red Circle Of Death Are Also Registered Trademarks Of The "Other Console's" Owner)

Well I don't know about Just Cause, but the video capture of Uncharted 2 multiplayer is absolutely fantastic. I've laughed myself silly watching my first ever UC2 online match. If JC can bring that kind of hilarity to their game then I'm all for it.

Nice. I would like to know why every PS3 game does not have the YouTube feature.

COD MW2? No.
Killzone 2? No.
inFamous? No.
Uncharted 2? No.

I could go on and on, but I believe I have made my point.

The devs need to use the PS3 for everything it brings to the table, and that's the bottom line.
