The Next-Gen Screenshot Thread

Ever had the moment where you're playing a game and you're like wow, these graphics look nice! Feel free to post them here since it's a lot easier now to get captures directly from your PS4 or Xbox One.

Just thought it would be fun to share. Let's see yours!

New rule: 2-3 images per post only please to avoid the delay in page loading!

COD:G (PS4)

Are you guys using the "Share" feature on PS4 for these screens?

Yes, the share feature. It gets uploaded to either Facebook or Twitter then you can share from there.

I'm still trying to figure out how to delete screenshots though from my harddrive. Can't seem to find the place or option for that.

Go where you can see how much space you got free.

Thanks! So this is in the settings, I presume?

Yeah, Ghosts definitely doesn't look as bad as some reviews say.

The multi player is setup horribly. I can spawn and ill die 2 seconds later. Sure a lot of other cods are like that but this one is the worst

I had to setup a Twitter account just for the PS4 share, I really hope Sony adds more options for sharing video. I don't want to bother my family/friends with mediocre videos of me playing BF4. Here's hoping to Youtube support.

Are you uploading using the share option for Twitter or Facebook? Twitter compresses the image to 20% of the original file size so those pictures come out looking a lot worse than the source image.

The PS4 stores pictures at about 500kb to 1.5 mb each in file size, whereas the twitter uploads are compressed and only roughly 100kb.

Using an external capturing device would be ideal but none of them work yet, unless you have the youtube workaround solution to bypassing HDMI pass-through.
Sony should add an option to extract screenshots and video to a USB device uncompressed directly through the PVR feature.


There is no point in sharing screenshots to Twitter if the original image quality is diminished through the share button upload feature. I tested uploading some NBA 2k14 screenshots to twitter and they are converted to lower resolution than the source image and about 1/4 of the file size.


Compressed Twitter re-sized images:

To twitter, but I just found out how to use the original size. Put :o rig instead of :large at the end of the link.
