Xbox One screenshot feature 'more challenging' than Microsoft thought

Microsoft's upcoming December patch for the Xbox One won't include the screenshot taking feature, as it is 'a little more technically challenging'

The ability to take screenshots on Microsoft's next-gen console isn't something you can do right now, with the simple screenshot taking ability meant to come in the December update, but it has been revealed that it won't be happening just yet.




Xbox boss Phil Spencer has come out and said: "It's a little more technically challenging than I thought. Two weeks ago, they think they've found a good solution for screenshots. They're working on it. They know people want it. The team has a path to getting it done, and now it's just prioritizing".


Microsoft is pushing out its December update soon, with it being smaller than some of the previous updates to the Xbox One. Spencer has said that it's time "for us to pause for a little bit and settle just as all the new consoles are coming online". What do you think? Excuses? A closed-off system like the Xbox One should've had screenshot taking abilities from day one, it's not like we're talking heavy stuff here, like 1080p at 30FPS, let alone 1080p at 60FPS - there's no hardware change in letting gamers take screenshots.
