New PS5 hack steals one of the Xbox Series X’s best features
The new PS5 feature looks set to roll out officially soon

Spotted by @GamingIntPhoto1 on Twitter, the Media Gallery appears to be offering players the option to upload their screenshots and clips.

They can then be viewed on the PS App for a limited period of 14 days.

As well as the two week countdown, clips will are limited to three minutes.

The feature has been in beta in Japan and Canada but has popped up for some North American users.

However, in a subsequent tweet, @GamingIntPhoto1 noted that the feature had been removed.

This has lead to speculation that it’s on the cusp of being officially rolled out in a software update, and the trigger was accidentally pulled too early.

Xbox owners already have this handy feature on the Xbox Series X|S.

When gamers on the console take a screenshot or clip, they can access it on the Xbox app.

At the moment, if you want to get a clip or screen grab from a game on PS5, you have to use a workaround.

One is to upload to social media from your console and then download it from Facebook or Twitter.

The other is create a chat on PSN with a friend, or alt account, and send your photos on there.

You can then access them on your PS App and download them to your phone.

Hopefully, Sony is planning to make this feature official in the immediate future.

We’ll keep an eye out for a February software update over the next few weeks.
