"Xbox, Record That"
Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox One's built-in DVR records the last five minutes of gameplay, ten minutes less than the PS4. That said, some handy voice commands might make the feature more convenient. Maybe.
"The idea is you're always recording," Microsoft Studios creative director Ken Lobb told a San Diego Comic-Con panel while demonstrating Xbox One's DVR. "The last five minutes of any game you're playing are always being stored on your hard drive."
Once captured, the footage can be edited or overlain with a voice track, before being shared online. Livestreaming footage online is also possible, as is quickly saving 30 seconds of video if you've managed to pull off a sensational stunt in the middle of a tense multiplayer game.
"Say you're playing online and you just did the best thing ever - you can't pause as you're playing online," Lobb continued. "You can say 'Xbox, record that' and it'll grab the last 30 seconds of gameplay for you to play around with later."
Xbox One's DVR will apparently capture game footage to commemorate achievements and challenges. Conversely, the PS4 automatically records the last 15 minutes of play, which can be edited and pushed onto social networks via the Share button (depending on the specific game).
Are you looking forward to sharing your gaming prowess with the waiting world?
