Xbox One game capture hits social sites in 2014

Game capture only available via Xbox LIVE at launch.

Xbox One will get the ability to upload recorded gameplay footage to social media sites like Facebook and YouTube next year, a Microsoft representative told Polygon.

At launch, according to a demonstration provided to Destructoid, sharing will only be available via Xbox LIVE. The system automatically captures that last five minutes of gameplay at 720p resolution and 30 frames per second.

Clips can be edited, saved, and shared. Xbox One will also be able to stream live gameplay via Twitch, with players able to provide voice-over commentary and Kinect camera footage.

Xbox One launches on November 22 for $499.
