Microsoft has this week confirmed that their new next generation Xbox One games console will capture game footage at 720p and 30 frames per second.
The new Xbox one will also include an Upload service that will allow gamers to manage, edit, and share their content directly from the games console allowing you to share bragging right extremely quickly.
However the new capture features will not capture the full power of the system. For an example the new Forza 5 Xbox One racing game outputs at 1080p and 60 frames per second, but Xbox One’s in-built DVR captures clips the footage to 720p and 30 frames per second.
To re-cap the Microsoft Xbox One is powered by a customised AMD Jaguar 8 core processor and will also feature a graphics processor that is tailored for Direct X 11. graphics and comes with 32MB of high bandwidth embedded ESRAM.
The 8GB of RAM on the Xbox One is DDR3, and will be capable of supporting full HD video in 1080p and the new 4K video, it will also offer full 7.1 surround sound support. Marc Whitten, chief Xbox One platform explained a little more:
“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.”
“We’ve moved from the 64×64 gamerpics on Xbox 360 to a full 1080p,” Whitten added. “They are beautiful, and you are going to see some really cool hero moments, like when you login to see personalised views of your games and other content.”
