The original Xbox One enables gamers to record their gameplay in 720p resolution at 30 frames-per-second. That’s good enough but it’s not great. Compare this to the Xbox One X which will have support for 4K gameplay recording from day one and you can imagine just how owners of the standard console will feel. Microsoft is offering them an olive’s branch by confirming that their console will soon be able to record gameplay in full HD.
Microsoft recently discontinued the original Xbox One that was released back in 2013. It’s only selling the Xbox One S and the Xbox One X now. There are still countless people out there that own the original console so keeping them happy is important for the company.
Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox One Game DVR will get support for 1080p gameplay recording soon. Moreover, console owners will also be able to save their recordings to an external hard drive. This will prove valuable in saving internal storage on the console.
The company’s Mike Ybarra confirmed on Twitter that Xbox One owners will be able to record gameplay in 1080p HD for up to an hour.
This feature has only been rolled out to Alpha Insiders at this point in time, this means that only those who are in the upper echelons of the Xbox Insiders program can test it right now.
Microsoft is likely going to release the feature for all Xbox One owners in the coming months.
