When the Xbox One arrives, one of the features that is favored by people that watches game footage online is the ability to upload five minutes of gameplay. Users can upload videos if they believe the content is worth sharing. It was unknown until what the quality of these videos would be until yesterday. Xbox One?s chief product officer Marc Whitten has reported that the Xbox One will be able to capture footage at 720p with 30 frames per second (fps)
The games will mostly be output at 1080p with 70fps, but the DVR capabilities in the console captures the lower 720p quality video.
?The first thing you?ll see with our game DVR is the integration of our Upload service on the console. This service allows you to manage, edit, and share your content. Your clips are stored in the cloud. Also, you?ll see games making ‘magic moment’ videos of your gameplay based on the game DVR functionality ? all seamlessly integrated. You?ll be able to see these clips in the Xbox One Guide, in your own game DVR collection, and when you are looking at gamercards on the system. You?ll also see games take advantage of this platform capability and do interesting things to integrate captured game footage into the game experience itself,? stated Whitten.
