Xbox One key features will require Live Gold subscription to work

Xbox One will block key features to non Xbox Live Gold Subscribers (NASDAQ:MSFT)

| Gaming Consoles News | Posted: Aug 8, 2013 9:27 pm

If you think that the Xbox One is going to be chocked full of awesomesauce, you're most certainly right, that is unless you do not have a subscription to Xbox Live Gold. Microsoft has confirmed that features like SmartMatch, Skype, the built in TV Guide, and the game recording DVR will all be locked down if you're not an Xbox Live Gold member.

This news comes hot on the heels of an earlier announcement that confirmed the next-gen console will only record game-play video in 720p and not at the full 1080p resolution all of its games will be played at. It seems like the hits never stop coming for the Xbox One, but that does not stop people flocking to stores en masse to pre-order theirs. In other news, Microsoft released an unboxing video of the retail version of the Xbox One one earlier today and you can watch it here.
