Xbox One achievements will not be automatically recorded unless devs want it

Xbox One's DVR recording function was said to capture every single achievement you unlock earlier this week. Microsoft has now clarified the matter to say that it's a feature that devs need to turn on in their games first.

If you missed the original report and details, go here first.

Microsoft's Albert Penello took to NeoGAF to clarify the matter and said, "It won't be automatic for every Achievement. It's a feature that Developers can unlock for achievements, OR, for instance, have hidden in the game for doing something cool or discovering something hidden.

"Basically we allow developers access to GameDVR and they can put conditions on an automatic recording.

"But not every Achievement will automatically be recorded."

Well, that puts an end to yet another Xbox One rumour. But still, do you think it's a neat feature?
