Microsoft showcases Xbox One record feature and sharing to SkyDrive
We are only a few days away from the big launch of Microsoft’s latest gaming console. The Xbox One is set to hit store shelves on November 22nd, and go head-to-head with rival Sony’s PlayStation 4, which debuted this past week. Microsoft is continuing to tease the launch with a continuous and, mostly, controlled release of information and videos to keep interest high.
The latest comes in video-format, posted today on the blog of Major Nelson, though it’s actually authored by Microsoft’s Jeff Rubenstein. The short flick focuses on one of the big new features of the Xbox One — the ability to record your screen during games. It’s a common practice among gamers, and YouTube is littered with these videos showing how to play particular parts of the latest titles.
To make it easier to share your recorded moments, Xbox One utilizes SkyDrive. According to Rubenstein, “how do you share those memorable gameplay moments in front of everyone else’s eyeballs? The answer is SkyDrive. Save and edit your clips, then upload to the cloud via SkyDrive on Xbox One.” With your videos safely in the cloud, you can choose how you wish to share them — upload to YouTube or put them on Facebook or within an email that’s just for your friends. You can watch the just over one minute clip below showcasing how this feature works.Further reading: Microsoft, Xbox One
