Agree! Just Cause looks very well. It's missing some physics and missions but it is still a great game.

The first game was epic in size, just poor in repetitive missions. But it looks like Just Cause 2 is going in the right direction, can't wait for some awesome sky diving! colgate.gif

PS3 Just Cause 2 Has Video Capture Built Right In
By Mike Fahey on January 23, 2010 at 5:20 AM

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.

Just Cause 2 parachutes into North America on March 23.

Seems like a neat feature. Good for those OMGWTF moments and wish you had a capture set-up or sorts.

As a 360 owner I miss out on this cool feature.

Oh, very nice. Video capturing features always rock. The video capture feature on GTA:IV is what made me buy it for PC even though I already had it on PS3.

This game is looking good, the UK exclusive content looks sweet also. Can't wait.

The first one was full of potential, but it reeked of mediocrity. It lacked polish. What I'm hoping for from the second one is a larger city area. The "city" in Just Cause was made up from 10 buildings. I don't like all-jungle maps, A mix of city areas and "wild" ones is what I'm after (think San Andreas). If they don't make a good, large city, hopefully they'll make up for it with the diverse environments. In the first one 99.5% of the map was jungle, and the other 0.5% was the "big" city and those little towns.

The cities don't look to be much better in JC2 from what I've seen. Hopefully I'm proven wrong though. I don't mind the vast jungle, I just wish there was more to 'find' in the first one. There were just little towns dotted around the map without much reason. The developers are promising that "every village, every town has a purpose...nothing is for shoe" but I'm skeptical so far. So much potential in the first game. I hope the second lives up to that potential.

The second one has Snow, Jungle and Desert, so right off the bat it's instantly more varied than it's predecessor.

All the small areas with people (such as villages, military bases etc) seem to have destructible objects and are loaded with enemies, so that should provide some entertainment for a while. That straight away sounds more fun than...

1. Talk to guy
2. Shoot enemies
3. Blow up barricade
4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 twice
5. Raise flag/Kill commander.

Destructible environments icon14.gif
I saw videos with buildings being destroyed, but I thought those were just scripted events. It would be cool if you could shoot every tree down like in Crysis, but it probably won't happen (in the next 5 years).

Also, @foohy: Yeah, on the video where you jump off the huge building, you can see there's no "city" area around it, only mountains and jungles. That's why I'm kinda worried about this one. But it looks like the developers like making other parts of the island more, so lets just hope they do that part perfectly.

Yeah me too.

I love the graphics. The envoirnment looks sweet - the water, misty clouds when you go up in the helicopter and explosions.

I thought the grappling thing then using your parachute is a bit OTT but it would probably be lots of fun.

Nice creative ways to kill people too. icon14.gif

'Parachute Climber' seems like it will be fun to get.

Something tells me 'Trying Everything Once' is going to be a pain in the ass though.

EDIT: I hope the difficulty achievements are stackable..

There's now supposed to be a demo on it's way but they never said which platforms for, that's good because games like this needs demos so I can test car physics which is one of the important things for these games in my opinion.

This whole exclusive video capture thing for the PS3 version of Just Cause 2.....does anyone know if this literally just records the footage as it appears during gameplay, or can you also edit the footage and change the camera angles and zoom in and out of the recorded action? Basically like a director mode.

Going from previous games that have included the Feature, it allows you to record 10 minute clips of gameplay and either save it to your PS3s HDD or upload it straight to YouTube straight from teh PS3, which requires you to login to your YouTube account obviously, though it may be completly different. As i said though this is going from what previous titles with the feature have been able to do.

Ok, but on previous games that have done that......were you able to alter the appearance of the video once it was recorded? Like change the camera angles at certain points in the video to give it a much more cinematic look?

The reason I ask is I only have a Xbox 360 and am interested in what can actually be done with this PS3 exclusive feature. If its just basically recording footage from the exact same viewpoints you get when actually playing the game (just like FRAPS does on PC games) then it does not really mean much to me since I have a DVD recorder that can do that.

But if you are able to do extra things with the recorded footage like pan the camera around and stuff so you could show explosions and stuff from different camera angles....that would be something to be jelous about.

Ohhh, no there were not any specific footage editing tools for the recorded footage, it upload/saved raw footage.
