Ive been playing Rumble Roses XX and it has a photo shoot mode where you can take pictures and still shots and such, can you do anything like that in this game, I know there are pole dances and stuff, but can you save stillshots or take photos?
Well, yeah. You can naturally use a video capture device to take "photos" in any game. It's not exactly the same thing as simply going to your xbox and seeing them in the photos directory or w/e, or simply running a program on the already saved data to convert it to something standard.
Blame the movie industry. Half the point of the HDMI format (and HDCP) is to prevent 100% accurate digital recording of the video. I'm not sure whether or not they succeeded, but I believe they were trying to even make it illegal to manufacture hardware that violates HDCP protocol.
Well I knew there's a law (DMCA?) to something of that effect. Personally I think it won't stand up to a serious (expensive) legal challenge. Of course there may not even a need for a full frontal challenge. Devices (e.g. CD/DVD drives, police radar, or a pencil(!)) that violate one law or another are available in very open fashion.
Anyway I was hoping for a capture device that takes component input which won't have the technical (and potentially legal) issues of DHCP.
