Xbox One Game DVR feature records footage at 720p, 30 FPS

Get ready to have your mind blown with the Xbox One's Game DVR function, which records footage at 720p and 30 FPS

While the Xbox One might be capable of supporting resolutions as high as 4K, nearly all titles will be pumped out at 1080p. Some titles, such as Battlefield 4, will run at 720p, but crank the frame rate up to 60 FPS.




News is now hitting that the Xbox One's Game DVR feature, which records in-game footage for your viewing pleasure, is limited to just 720p at 30 FPS. This has been confirmed by Microsoft's Marc Whitten during an interview with IGN. He says: "Game DVR captures beautiful clips at 720p 30 [frames per second]."


Whitten adds: "Your clips are stored in the cloud. You'll be able to see these clips in the Xbox One Guide, in your own game DVR collection and when you are looking at gamercards on the system." So now I have a question, is the Game DVR feature limited to 720p at 30 FPS because the footage is stored in the cloud? Would uploading 1080p at 60 FPS footage be too much? Not even the GPU spec bump will help this.
