Posted on January 4, 2012, CJ Miozzi Xbox 720 To Be A DVR Too (RUMOUR)
According to a Microsoft patent filed in 2007 and approved a couple weeks ago, the next Xbox console may also double up as a patent includes the following description:
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.
If this rumor from November pans out, the Xbox 720 may be unveiled this month.
