The PlayStation 5 begins its international rollout on November 12, and while that date fast approaches Sony is still revealing new details about the system. Now, in an extensive FAQ on the PlayStation Blog, we know more about the recording functionality tied to the DualSense’s “Create” button–and it’s even stronger than what the PS4’s innovative “Share” button offered.
The PS5 will automatically capture the last 60 minutes of gameplay–and when you press the Create button, you can choose to “save recent gameplay” to capture it. You can choose the full 60 minutes, or as little as the last 15 seconds, depending on what you want to capture and share.
By default, footage is captured at 1080p with 60fps. However, if you want to manually record a section of gameplay–meaning that you start the recording yourself–you can capture at 4K. This means that getting higher-quality footage requires slightly more forward-thinking.
