Microsoft Demonstrates Xbox One’s Video Capture Tools
Which next gen console is for you? Game Front can help you make your decision with our Xbox One vs. PlayStation 4 Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
The PlayStation 4′s 15 minute video capture feature makes the Xbox One’s max of five minute videos seem itty-bitty. Microsoft appears to close the video capture gap, though, with a suite of editing and sharing tools that, quite frankly, look terrific.
In the video below, originally posted on the Xbox Wire, Microsoft demonstrates how the Xbox One, and the video camera and voice functionality of Kinect, can combine to make sharing your greatest gaming moments a snap. Color me impressed. That’s a greenish-color with a sky-blue hue.
Still, while I love the ease of use and Kinect integration on the Xbox One for video capture, it’s tough to top the fact that the PlayStation 4 is always watching. The system is constantly recording and saving your last 15 minutes of gameplay. That means when those unexpected moments of gaming hilarity or triumph or stupidity come up, the PlayStation 4 will have them recorded and stored. That makes video recording on the Xbox One, which must be activated, a different animal altogether.
Either way, gaming clips, already a YouTube staple, are about to explode.
