Xbox 360 to get universal video capture?


On Xbox 360, games like Halo 3 feature the ability to record gameplay and save it to the hard-drive. It would be interesting to see this in other games, so believes Kotaku’s Brian Crecente. At the Tokyo Game Show last week, he asked a developer whether or not they’d be incorporating this feature into their game.

“We’d love to have video capture in our game, but why work on something that the platform holder is already developing,” the developer said accidentally, who’s being kept anonymous due to their slip-up.

When Microsoft’s director of digital games at LIVE, Scott Austin, was asked about this feature, he replied.

“We are always thinking about ways that Live at the platform level can make games better,” Austin said. “I’m not going to comment on video capture, but you can assume we are thinking about ways to make things more interactive.

“Interactivity used to mean things like multiplayer, now you see more cooperative things in games.”

Could universal video capture be coming to Xbox 360 in the near future? With Microsoft’s usually big yearly updates, we believe so.
