    No, only the games in the XMB Lists allow screenshots at any time.

    The top 2 lists are retail and PSN games that you need to bring up the XMB and go to photos to take screenshots,

    The bottom 2 are retail and PSN that have a photo function built into the game

    I've learned something new today. The XMB photo-taking option is quite cool. We need more games to use it.
