What are game captures?

Game recordings are screenshots or video clips taken during gameplay. Given the impressive graphics capabilities of the PS5, it’s only natural for players to stop and capture the moment. Most PlayStation exclusives even include a special photo mode to better position the camera, control environmental effects, and change your character’s pose or expression.

By pressing the Share button on the DualSense controller, you can open the Create menu to save a video of recent gameplay or take a screenshot. You can also start recording to broadcast your gameplay or share it with friends.
