Roxio Reveals Game Capture for Consoles and PC

If you’ve always wanted to show off your gaming skills on YouTube, but haven’t wanted to labor through the lashup of cables necessary to make it happen, Roxio has a new product that you may want to check out.

The Game Capture includes both the hardware and software you need to snag real-time video from your console or PC. Obviously, the PC version is software-only, but the console version includes an in-line box that feeds video directly to a PC for recording. The console version will capture video at up to 480p, while the PC kit will record HD at full-screen resolution.

The included software will allow you to do all the eye-burning fades, wipes, and other effects your heart desires, and once you’re done with your video, you can export it directly to YouTube.

Best of all, the kit will be affordable. The console version will run you $99.99 when it releases on March 24, with the PC version retailing for $49.99 when it hits stores in Q2 of this year. Keep an eye out for a large influx of user videos later this month as console owners get their hands on this shiny new toy.

Pc Game Capture is identical to Vulkano (Vulkano was called Hava first) the only difference is Vulkano supports ethernet connections so you can watch whats being streamed on the home network and on the internet.

Prices start at 150.00 for the Vulkano
Prices start at ??? for Game Capture

Luther, the pricing for Game Capture is in the article. $100 for the console, and $50 for the PC. Roxio’s got a lot of experience in making easy-to-understand user interfaces from their experience with things like CD burning software. If they can parlay that into a solid user experience with this, it’s likely a lot of people will give this a try.
