Yes, this time we got a massive amount of information concerning the newest Microsoft child… of course I’m speaking of Xbox 720! What would you say, if I told you that the new system will be capable of recording in a way similar to DVR video capture? Not bad at all! This will obviously lead to easy sharing of video clips containing recorded game-play!
What’s more, Xbox 720 enables players to share their recordings (in the form of links) with their friends by the use of social networks like: Facebook, Youtube and etc… Official information confirm that Xbox 720 has a built-in recorder, which allows for the same process as in the case of DVR (also menages picking out certain footage from the whole clip).
Hardcore players should obviously smile in this moment, because Microsoft, will make some enhancements over the Achievement system for the next Xbox… Those will mostly include an ability of adding more achievements to a product, without going for downloadable content! This is a simple, but quite handle idea!
“This is designed specifically to allow developers to tweak player behavior, perhaps urging players to check out specific areas of a game or get past a difficult spot,” as claims Polygon. “Next-gen achievements can also be tied to broader events, like a weekend challenge or a communal goal, like contributing a set number of kills to the bigger goal of 10,000 kills over one weekend.”
The last information, coming from Polygon adds that the new system may have an online-requirment, which mainly aims at the applications that will launch with the console. This, a little controversial idea, may be left for the final decision of individual developers. That’s all for now in the next-generation world, hope you enjoyed it!
