Windows 10 Gets Game DVR Features


Windows 10 will have built-in game recording features, making it even easier to record and share your favorite gaming moments on PC.

Microsoft's Game DVR will run in the backround whenever a game is being played, allowing users to even allow the program to run a buffer so users can capture cool moments after they happen. Right now uses can even download and sort through Xbox One (through the Xbox App) and PC made gameplay recordings, with the PC versions being stored in the MP4 format at 1080p.

Recordings will be handled at the OS level, meaning that developers will not have to enable functionality for the program. Microsoft will also be implementing a digital rights management program which will restrict recording if licensed music if publishers do not want their content to be shared, which in my honest opinion is a restriction too far for a gameplay recording software. 

Those that wish to disable this functionality entirely, in order to prevent any potential performance problems.

Right now all i can really say about this program is that it nice that it is there but we as PC games have had this functionality through AMD and Nvidia drivers and programs already, and these are not enabled by default, and have no form of digital rights management in place so that us gamers can record our gameplay unrestricted.  

Microsoft seem to be trying to make PC more gamer friendly by adding the same functionality as the Xbox One, though anybody interested in these features will already know that these options are already available and better implemented with other apps like the Geforece Experience, AMD Raptr, bandicam or others.

Looks cool, I wonder if it'll support Twitch streaming as well. If so, and the performance hit isn't too bad, OBS might have a new competitor. I mean, recording software that's implemented into an OS would appeal to the masses that don't know a lot about computers.Quote
