Microsoft has revealed some details on Xbox One’s video capture feature, also called game DVR.
The PS4’s share function was revealed during the system’s unveil event and the controller also features a share button, and while we don’t know how the time and size of the clips captured by the Xbox One, here are some details on it as revealed by Microsoft’s Marc Whitten.
“Game DVR captures beautiful clips at 720p 30fps. The first thing you’ll see with our game DVR is the integration of our Upload service on the console. This service allows you to manage, edit, and share your content,” he told IGN in an AMA.
“Your clips are stored in the cloud. Also, you’ll see games making “magic moment” videos of your gameplay based on the game DVR functionality – all seamlessly integrated. You’ll be able to see these clips in the Xbox One Guide, in your own game DVR collection, and when you are looking at gamercards on the system. You’ll also see games take advantage of this platform capability and do interesting things to integrate captured game footage into the game experience itself.”
The Xbox One controller does not have a share button but presumably you have to press the guide button on the controller to bring up options to upload and do other things with your captured clips. Recently the Xbox One’s GPU performance was boosted by 6% so that should definitely help in providing the extra grunt to do these things.
