Xbox One’s New DVR Feature Will Require Xbox Live Gold Subscription

Posted August 11, 2013 by Felisha "Nightingale" Silva in News

In a recent article on IGN, it was said that in order to use the new DVR feature on Microsoft’s latest gaming/entertainment console that you will need an Xbox Live Gold subscription. With this new DVR feature gamers around the world can capture game video and share it with the rest of the world. It was also mentioned that in order to take advantage of other features such as Skype and the new Smart Match multiplayer matchmaking, you will once again need the Xbox Live Gold subscription.

The new DVR feature on the Xbox One will be capable of capturing video clips at 30 frames per second in 720p. That’s pretty sweet if you ask me. This will take sharing the experience of gaming with others gamers on Xbox to a whole other level. Say you want to share a funny moment in a game, you can. Or say you want to capture that one epic moment when you take down that one boss you’ve been trying for days to beat. It’s a handy little feature. I just wish it would’ve come sooner, perhaps to the 360, instead of us having to wait for the new console, which will be available for purchase this coming November.

This announcement has had it’s fair share of negative and positive feedback from the gaming community. A lot of people out there seem to have a problem with the fact that you will need the Xbox Live Gold subscription in order to use these features. Which is pretty silly, seeing as how you need the Xbox Live Gold subscription with the Xbox 360 to play online, watch Netflix, and take advantage of other special features that are only available through having the Xbox Live Gold subscription. If you ask me, $60 a year isn’t too bad for the Gold subscription. It could be worse, it could be like $20 a month if Microsoft decided to go that route and make their consumers pay monthly.

With so many people already having a Gold subscription, this is no big deal. Are those of you that plan on getting the Xbox One excited for this new feature? Do you think you will utilize it and actually use it in you gaming future? Or will this just be one of those features that are cool in the beginning, but fade out over time? I want to know what your opinion is one this new feature!
