Sony “Shares” Deep Down Screenshots Directly from a PS4: Leaves One, Deletes all the Others

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia held a series of events in Japan named “Try! PlayStation 4. During the demo gatherings Japanese gamers got to try out multiple PS4 games, including a demo of the upcoming RPG from Capcom Deep Down, as you can see from the picture below.

The picture was tweeted directly by the @TryPS4 account together with a myriad of screenshots “shared” from the consoles, mostly from Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack and Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends.

What about Deep Down? apparently a few pictures of Capcom’s online RPG were indeed shared and tweeted, but whoever was at the helm of the Twitter account deleted them all but one, that you can see below.

Everything else has been unceremoniously canceled, including the one below, that wasn’t deleted fast enough and our reader Zeromus managed to grab a quick screencap of it from his twitter feed.

According to what Zeromus reported via e-mail, at least three more screenshots were shared and then deleted. Unfortunately the screencap above is small, but we can still distinguish one of the lovely and realistic armors included in the game, and the silhouette of a monster on the background. You can see a manually enlarged version by clicking on the picture, even if a lot of the detail went lost.

Why were they all deleted? Probably Capcom ruled that the game’s screenshots still weren’t ready for public consumption, especially considering that PlayStation 4’s share function downsizes screenies and compresses them a lot, resulting in a steep loss of definition and color quality.

Why was only one screenshot left there? The most probable case is that it was simply overlooked, since the twitter account shared several hundreds of pics and one may have slipped through the watchful eye of Sony’s employees.

Unfortunately we have no way to know, but thanks to our brave reader, at least we got to see all the tracks that were left.
