imageIf you like recording speedruns or fighting game matches, Xbox One has a feature for you. The new Xbox Live has a digital video feature where you can upload game moments into the cloud.


Users will also be able to access movies, saves, and music from Xbox Live’s cloud feature. Xbox One’s live service will have more than 300,000 servers at launch. Right now, Xbox Live is powered by fifteen thousand servers.

    TV. Movies. Tv. Movies. Tv. Movies.

    “Now your games are more like TV AND MOOOOOVIES!!!”

    Christ. This isn’t what I ever wanted when I played my NES for the first time.

    Why is turning games into movies and Tv the endgame for these companies. Why can’t they just be games?

    I’m done. I think my mind just broke. They don’t get it. The people in charge don’t get it.

      VideoGamer TV video about this is going to be awesome
      After that event I’ll just build a gaming PC and get a PS4 later

      • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

        That’s what I’m planning on doing (though my rig will end up being used for other things as well, like graphic design).

    • TheExile285

      Not really sure what your talking about. All this does it make it easier to record gameplay.

        It certainly seemed to be presented as the next stage for those who rank themselves off achievement points. Which in honestly, plays to a good portion of the current audience.

    So is the Wii U going to be the only console without this “feature”? I wonder if they can do an update of sorts to incorporate this.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Not likely. In both the PS4 and Xbox One, there’s hardware dedicated to this function. The Wii U has no such dedicated hardware and I doubt that it’d be easy (if at all possible) to do a software based version of this.

      • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

        Well that’s unfortunate. Especially with Nintendo looking into (and semi-limiting) YouTube videos of certain lengths, like Let’s Play vids, this is a feature that I think would benefit them greatly.

        • Solomon_Kano

          Yea, that would be a way for them to keep the whole footage thing under their roof without doing something controversial like the Let’s Play thing. Guess it’s something to keep in mind for the next system?

          • Folk Hellfang

            To be fair, the Wii U already has the extended search/guide feature on TVii. But DVR stuff probably won’t be happening. That being said, I don’t believe the Xboxone will actually have DVR functionality so much as it will make use of streaming sevices. But that could be way off.

          • Solomon_Kano

            That’s what he was asking about though, the DVR stuff, not the guide.

      The Wii U can do screenshot uploading to the Miiverse, but that looks just about it. And not all games support it.

    I don’t want a game dvr I want a tv dvr it would save me $15 a month on dvr rental which I could give to xbox one for dlc or gold

  • TheExile285

    That cool

  • Folk Hellfang

    Has a DVR to upload video to the cloud. That sentence is an exercise in redundancy. I think it needs to be decoded to say, “the xboxone can upload videos store on its 500gb hdd to the cloud.” Either way, I like the share button better.

    • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

      It will probably end up doing the same thing as Sony’s “Share” button. Microsoft just announced a TwitchTV app for the 360, definitely see them making use of that with the DVR and the Cloud.

    interesting now how much this tech will cost me?
    I only have one kidney left to live on.

  • I want T.V. D.V.R. and streaming on Windows, it’s the ONLY reason I watched the event, Microsoft said it will be unifying all platforms, ¿why not the T.V. with the Tablet, phone and P.C.? not just apps, I mean actually watching cable-/satellite-T.V. on those devices, just like with Microsoft Mediaroom.

    A built-in app for Windows 8.1 (Blue) named Xbox TV that could stream any content on a P.C., Tablet or Phone linked to the Microsoft-account of an Xbox LIVE Gold-member, easy as that.
