Record and share PS3 footage?

Harrison drops hints, says elements of Killzone exceed trailer.

Sony's working on a way of recording PS3 game footage and sharing it with your friends online, according to Phil Harrison.

Speaking to the Official PlayStation Mag in an excerpt on the semi-official Three Speech blog, Harrison said that it was the plan for a specific, as-yet unannounced title, but hinted that it was in Sony's thoughts in a general way too.

"We're actually already working on it now," he said when asked about sharing video footage. "There are two ways to do it. One is as pure video actually saved direct from the gameplay experience, but that creates quite a large data cloud.

"The more efficient way of doing it is to record game input and then share that to each user. We are doing that in a very innovative way on a game that we haven't shown anybody yet," he revealed.

And speaking of video footage, Harrison also reckons that production on Killzone - one of the infamous trailers shown during Sony's E3 2005 conference - will put it in a position to be shown off in 2007.

"With Killzone, the expectation internally and externally is very high," he said, "and I won't show it until it's going to exceed people's expectations. It will be next year before we show it again, but it's coming along very well.

"The team are working very hard, they know exactly what they have to do and there's no doubt they will achieve it, but there's nothing to be served by something that doesn't satisfy my goals for the project.

"I can tell you, though, that some elements already exceed the trailer," he added.
