Capture on Xbox One to require Gold

Written by David Stellmack

Not the only thing on the system that will

Besides confirming that the Game DVR functionality on the Xbox One will capture at 720p/30 FPS, Microsoft has also confirmed that you will need to have an Xbox Live Gold subscription to use this functionality.

This isn’t the only Xbox One functionality that will be inaccessible to those that don’t have an Xbox Live Gold subscription. Skype, SmartMatch, and OneGuide will also require Xbox Live Gold. This really isn’t surprising, as Microsoft has always kept much of the additional functionality tied to the Xbox Live Gold subscription requirement.

The Game DVR functionality is one of the things that seems to interest many gamers as far as the new features on the Xbox One go. The Game DVR functionality on the Xbox One will record up to 5 minutes of gameplay that Xbox One owners can share with their friends over Xbox Live. This DVR functionality will also capture gameplay segments that it thinks are important using its “Magic Moments” feature.

Sony has not yet indicated whether its gameplay capture technology on the PlayStation 4 will also require a subscription.
