Xbox One Game DVR clips shareable only through Xbox Live at launch

Microsoft's Albert Penello says support for YouTube and Facebook will be added by 2014.

Video clips created using the Xbox One's Game DVR feature can be shared only through Xbox Live at launch, senior director of product planning and management Albert Penello has said.

In an interview with Destructoid, Penello said support for sites like YouTube and Facebook will be offered "by next year."

Xbox One Game DVR clips are captured in 720p at 30 frames-per-second. The Xbox One will automatically record the last five minutes of gameplay. Gamers can say "Xbox Record" at any time to begin recording content at any point.

Players can then edit their video and spruce it up with voice-over and even picture-in-picture through the Kinect. The Xbox One also supports external video capture devices.

The Xbox One launches on November 22 for $500.

"edit their video and spruce it up with voice-over and even picture-in-picture". So you can show off your fancy arcade pad controller, or do a "SUCK IT" victory dance. Thank you MS, I plan on sending my frienemies vids of my victory dance :)

I wonder if you can turn off this sort of feature.  Pointless wasting system resources on something I'll never ever want to use.

Thanks MS for actually telling me stuff about your console.  All I've heard from Sony is crickets.

I fully expect twitch.tv to crash every day around the xbox and ps 4 launch window.Millions of stupid kids will start streaming their shit and I don't think twitch can handle that.

That's ok. No new launch releases with a full feature set anymore. I imagine it'll be fully compatible once I actually am able to pick this baby up. Man My wallet is going to die next year since I definitely want both the X1 and PS4. UGH!

A year ago I bought an Elgato Game Capture HD and a 5 way, powered HDMI splitter. I can record my Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, and soon my Xbox One unrestricted and upload the videos to wherever I want. The software also let's be go back an hour or more if I forgot to hit record. PS3 and PS4 isn't included because they do not currently allow capture over HDMI.

My point? If you want more than this spend the money. I wish they didn't include it at all because all it means is that there's going to be more crap running in the background which means less resources for devs.

Ah and the If it isn't PS4 then you must be a drone, slave, idiot or my favorite butthurt (Generic name to encompass all that Sony fanboys ). Respect to Sony fans, I have been fortunate enough to own both the PS3, Xbox, and PC. Love all for different reasons, hate all for different reasons, prefer Xbox for Controller based gaming so the argument of you saying MS is releasing a console without all the features is ignorant and undeniably biased. When is the Magical Gaikai and I say magical not to diss but because of its true potential available? Video capture via external hardware due out on the PS4. I am positive they are not available launch day. Or did every gaming website post fake stories?

If it records automatically the last five miutes, why should I say Xbox Record? I don't get it

@gamespotpanayis  it seems you have to say "Xbox record" or press a button in order for it to start recording. It's probably not constantly recording all of the time.

@wickedsc300 Well they did finally say a few things about Gaikai, but it was nothing important the gamers really wanted to know.

@mike468 at least I will be able to play and lend used games at launch which is a hell of a lot more important than a video recorder. lol Enjoy

@Sun-Tzu-GE Well with over 300K dedicated servers, I don't think the XB1 will have any problems with that.

@Sun-Tzu-GE Twitch.tv can't even handle their current load.  Every time a LOL or DOTA2 tournament starts up (which is pretty much a 20% chance at any given time), every other stream starts lagging and the chat rooms start breaking.  I don't see how they're going to handle the load from PS4/XB1.

@Sun-Tzu-GE Yes because you can see the future. You're a known troll. Nice Try

This is where the PS4 and Xbox One diverge. Microsoft spent a significant amount of time, money, and die space developing custom silicon for all these non-gaming functions. Sony's hardware can still do that stuff, but will have more resources available for programmers when it's not.

Actually, from what I've read, it sounds like Microsoft's custom stuff can be used for more than just non-gaming functions, but at the cost of significant programming difficulty. Overall, I much prefer Sony's approach to hardware this time around.

@StHapns247 Well good for you, but I don't know that many people would be willing to spend an extra 200.00 on accessories just to capture video game play.

@ricardo-sene The 5 minutes is a buffer that is automatically being overwritten as you play. This way if you do something cool that you want to share, but didn't have the foresight to trigger the recording manually, you could conceivably go back 5 minutes and share it.

Think of it as a time machine that can only ever go 5 minutes into the past.

Considering you can't upload over HDMI and will never be able to upload to YouTube makes the X1 look better and now the announcement that PS4 only has 6 cores not 8 and only 4.5 gbs of ram makes the PS4 look like a POS

@Triton It's not really a big deal, but it is something that should have been their at launch.

The X1 allows external capture devices, so those who already post to youtube will still be able to do so, that's why I don't really think it's a big deal.

PS4 won't let you upload over HDMI and has no uploads at all to YouTube.

@CUDGEdave You mean the PC, right? The PS4 won't be able to upload to youtube either, and won't allow external capture devices at launch.

@Chai_Tea @StHapns247 I guess my point was that if they don't want to spend the money they should be pretty grateful that MS and Sony are even putting stuff like this in.

@StHapns247 @ricardo-sene  so basically what your saying is when  order the Kinect to "record", It will stop recording me and start recording my game.. BRILLIANT!!

StHapns247
StHapns247

@ricardo-sene @StHapns247 You would use the voice command when you want to save the last few minutes and/or record from the current point forward. I am not sure if there will be other commands like "record 1 minute back" or something like that.

MS hasn't really been clear about how the experience will really function, so what I am saying is based on my experience with other capture devices.

@XbotDestroyer @Blazen702 Says the brainwashed Sony Drone. BTW: How does Sony (ock taste ? You have a ton of experience bouncing Sony balls off your chin.
