    As some of you may have read already in XPGEvos post about Xbox One DVR its certainly not what a lot of gamers were expecting. Its no wonder that Microsoft will support external game capture devices with an adapter.
    For those too lazy to go read Evos post, what im referring to is the limited 5 minutes capture time on the next gen consoles on-board DVR, and the not so sharp 720p, 30 frames per second.

    One of the many uses for Microsoft's vaunted 300,000 Xbox Live servers for the Xbox One is to power the Game DVR, which lets you record, edit and re-visit your many exploits. Platform chief Marc Whitten told a panel that the resolution will be limited to 720/30p video, even if the game itself is higher resolution (Forza Motorsport 5 is 1080/60p, for instance). The console will automatically record the last five minutes of your gameplay, and can even save the last 30 seconds of action on command without interrupting play. Whitten added that all of that footage would be stored in the cloud, letting you edit and share content via Upload Studio. Games will create "magic moment" videos from such footage, which you can view from the Xbox OneGuide, your personal DVR collection and the gamer cards of other players.

    Well there you have it XPG , for those of you looking to create anything other than a dodgey looking 5 minute video, be prepared to spend yet more more on a separate capture unit and adapter.
    So whats are you`re thoughts guys, are you happy with the internal DVR or will you need something more?

    Trust me on this statement. Uploading 1080p is great and all... but 720p is much better when it comes to filesize. you don't need to use 1080p unless you have the bandwidth to support the huge upload.
