There have been virtually millions of shares since the PlayStation 4 has launched, matching the immense success of the next generation console. However, the Share button may be far from perfect according to some users.

A user on Reddit complained that there was initially no problem with the Share button at launch but, “Now it’s not even capturing what I wanted. Its like it captures a couple minutes before what I wanted. I won’t ever be able to see my first heli pilot kill again:( Thanks, Sony.”

Other users have been facing similar issues. “There’s a bit in Killzone where if you melee a guard he falls onto a ramp to an elevator. When you start the elevator the ramp flips up and so does the guard. Silly really, but it was a moment I wanted to share, yet the system had only stored the very end of the last chapter. Disappointing.” And yes, several others have tried capturing the same moment to not avail.

There are other complaints regarding the Sharing system. As of now, you can only share via Facebook and unless you make your posts public, only your friends will be able to see it. Even if you have friends on PSN, they’ll only be able to see it if they’re on your Friends list. As one user puts it, “This is a cumbersome system. I know a majority of my Facebook friends don’t care about what I share on PS4. Facebook is the last place I’d want to share my clips. I rather have YouTube, or someway to share only to my PSN friends. Or even better yet, allow us to download the raw file of footage. I know Sony intends to do these things. I just hope it comes sooner than later.”
