Xbox One game “DVR” features available to Xbox Live Gold members only

Wednesday, 7 August 2013 17:45 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Xbox One users who which to use the console’s new game DVR feature will need to have an Xbox Live Gold Account.

While expected and not really earth shattering news, the news was confirmed today to One Hit Pixel by a Microsoft spokesperson.

The DVR system in the console captures five minutes of gameplay which can be shared with friends online.

Microsoft also noted that its OneGuide feature, which outlines what’s on TV and trending in the Xbox Live community, will also be limited to Gold members.

More Gold only features are outlined by Microsoft here.

Xbox One is launching this fall.

Thanks, NeoGAF.

    I like multiplayer games, do not get me wrong but I prefer to play solo offline if there is a story to the game I play.

    And yes Xbox live is Expensive as much as Sony … how is it called…I do not know… anyway.

    I am glad millions of people see the value versus cost fair or better and continue to support this system.

    That does not mean I will never buy a sub for either platform but I think twice before jumping in and see if its value to my eyes hold true or not.

    SONY has already confirmed that game recording is not behind the paywall of PS+ — as PS+ ONLY effects multiplayer access. And it makes sense. The more people who put clips of their PS4 games online, the better advertising it is for SONY.

    For all the positive moves Microsoft make, there are these glaring reminders that nothing has changed in their fundamental operations. I’m glad to be finally leaving Microsoft’s ecosystem for SONYs. No hate to the Xbox One folks, I’ve just had enough of Microsoft.

    As gamers and consoles users, do you guys feel there is a sense of milking the console users through what I can see as multiple internet access options in Xbox live.
    I heard silver, and gold so far. When is diamond and then platinum coming up and with what functions?
    Is “per functionality” relevant to price point knowing that no matter what the console is plugged in and logged into the cloud;therefore transmitting data regardless of what functionality you use (e.g: DVR, or watching TV, or Netflix, or multiplayer games?)

    Btw same question goes toward Sony users if they have a same system as Microsoft does….

    Sounds like a list of capabilities for each Xbox1 qnd Ps4 per internet access price point need to be elevated ;)

    Got told by a useful email from MS that I’d played a grand total of something under 10 hours online over the last year so let the renewal slip. Had been a gold member for 5 years+. I’m now Silver and I can download arcade games, see online leaderboards, send messages etc. So that makes me online still doesn’t it?

    I would guess a difference between the two services which might justify some cost is that Sony have said they allow upload to Facebook and other social networks. I presume MS are hosting themselves in the cloud and that for me would give them better options for integration maybe.

    @11 i want do complete your post, 46 millions GOLD and SILVER have signed for Xbox Live. Yes because Silver members can still connect to Xbox Live, buy games, download demos, have a friends lists and they can even send messages to them. How many of you get messages from silver friends asking for 24, 48 hours Xbox Live codes? You can’t play online and join conversations, but if you have the console connected to the internet you are a member of Xbox Live Community.

    You are one or two in these 46 millions, yes because you can have more than one account. I have friends with Japanese, Uk, American accounts.

    Microsoft never told how many of those 46 millions are gold.

    We can’t even know how many of those 46 millions accounts are connect to Xbox Live. Because you can use Xbox 360 without a internet connection.

    so what’s why all the complaints I hear about kkinect and interpretation about spying is all about? because it is mendatory?

    You bring a point that needs to be emphasized when you state “If Microsoft cared about the discrepancy between Xbox Live users Vs. number of Xbox 360`s sold they wouldn`t have made Kinect mandatory.”
    Why kinect being mandatory for xbox 1 has to do with Microsoft choosing to care or not care for Xbox live user discrepencies?
    I am dumb because I dont own 360 nor ps3 but I see kinect as a gaming tool for offline gaming and/or sending a video of yourself playing a game on the cloud, does it have other use that imply the use of silver or better gold only?

    been a gold member since Xbox beta and could care less if I hardly play online anymore – same as on my Playstation Plus account. for 5 dollars a month I like the option to play online if i choose and the argument that it cost 1 game is lame. I can spend more on a single bottle of Honey Jack on any week day.

    Same theory as paying for a little more cable tv than you use – so what. Are you telling me hardcore gamers care about a couple of dollars. You complainers should be ashamed – unless you are playing on a black and white CRT you paid money for your rig – a could extra bucks for a great service should not kill you..

    @27 No, it`s just that Microsoft sold roughly 25 million Kinects Vs. 77 million Xbox 360`s. It`s an even bigger discrepancy than the one that exist between Live subs and 360`s.

    To me the numbers alone make a good case for not making Kinect mandatory on the Xbox-One. It has nothing to do with the adds-privacy issues with Kinect.

    I`ve been a live-Gold customer for a little over 3 years, and only recently got PlayStation Plus, so I don´t see myself as a platform fanboy.

    @36 I don’t agree. If you have two Xbox 360 (i own two to) it makes sense if you use your login details in one of them you need another account to use other console.

    What the…! It’s acceptable because it’s “expected” (and, while we’re on the subject who determined it to be expected – roll over doggy, play dead?) Are you kidding me!…What? Is it acceptable, somehow, because it’s no more than should be expected from Microsoft.

    No. Get on their case. Ask for better, expect better, or be prepared to settle for worse! I could hardly believe it when I read this in the news forum. The sheer nonchalance of the summary was downheartening – it intoned we should expect this crap, if crap standards are where we think the line should be set. Remember?

    One of the features that managed to let them struggle and claw towards somewhere approaching a level of parity with the PS4 – and was only revealed well after Sony’s demonstration gained interest – and they’ve stuck it behind a paywall.

    To all the nay-sayers: Do you really believe a company is delivering a service with unlimited cloud space for free? Dream on! Of course they want that you pay for the service.

    If DVR is your super feature buy a capture solution for example from elgato. Ah I forgot, you have to pay the capture solution and a big enough harddrive. A little investment of about $200. Nah to expensive. The same as a 3 years subscription of XBox Live ….. But no, it is Microsoft, they are evil….. I don’t pay for features, I want them for free… Aaarrggghhhh.

    @39 LOOOOOL

    Compare a Elgato to DVR on Xbox 1 is top notch. LOOOL

    Why Microsoft needs to charge for everything. Why they don’t let people understand the features. They could easily let Silver users to record 1 minute, with 10 free slots. i think for 500€, 10 minutes of video in the unlimited space of the cloud is enough, and who knows, may help decide if is worth Live Gold.

    #40 1 year ago
  41. illuminatusv

    So they let you pay for it. They say it before they launch the console. So you can decide for yourself: To take it as it is or to purchase another game console that meets your requirements. I have gold anyway so the decision is easy to me! And in addition I have already elgato capture hd too.

    None of this matters. Online gaming will continue to grow for both companies. Key word is “online”. Now obviously if your not online and you feel the need to DVR your games for your own personal viewing. PS4 is the console for you. But for those that are playing “online”, you have a choice if recording your gameplay is your thing.
