How to Upload your Screenshot and Video

At the beginning of this How-To, I mentioned that you could not only take a screen-shot and record video, but you would also be able to share them and spread the word about just how great you are at particular game.

  1. Press the triangle button to save a screenshot and the square button to save a video on the consoles internal storage.
  2. From the internal storage select “upload screenshot” to share via social media.
