We have been hearing a number of rumors about Microsoft’s next generation Xbox console, which may be called the Xbox 720, and now it would appear that it may also come with a DVR.
Then guys over at Kotaku have discovered a new patent from Microsoft, relating to their Xbox gaming console, which could see the next Xbox with a DVR built in, some details from the filing below.
A digital video recorder (DVR) application running alongside a television client component allows users to record media content on the gaming console. The DVR application also integrates itself with the console menu. Once integrated, users can record media content while playing games. Alternatively, users can record content when the gaming console is turned off. The recorded content can include television programming, gaming experience (whether local or online), music, DVDs, and so on. When in the recording state, users can also switch between various other media modes, whether gaming, television, and so on.
The original patent was filed back in 2007, and it is possible that a DVR feature could come with the next generation Xbox.
