Microsoft “could” be working on video capture for Xbox 360

During TGS, a unnamed developer was asked by Kotaku if the firm was working on video capture in it’s game – or something like what Halo 3 has.

“We’d love to have video capture in our game, but why work on something that the platform holder is already developing,” said the developer.

To get more clarification, the site asked Microsoft’s Scott Austin, director of digital games at Live, if this was indeed the case.

As expected, the answer was a windy “no comment”.

“We are always thinking about ways that Live at the platform level can make games better,” he 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.

“We want to have better quality and more immersive experiences. We are always looking to innovate. When innovation becomes table stakes we want to move forward. We want to make all entertainment services more rich with our live services.”
