So if there is an achievement for completing the game it will record the ending?

Talk about spoiling it to the masses

Might be handy to show off the joke achievements like "The Part Where He Kills You" from Portal 2. Could also have some fun with spoiling stuff if you like to troll.

ACHIEVEMENT!

*DVR Saves some useless shit*

I guess it could be neat for more difficult achievements.

EDIT: Devs will have to think of much better achievements, because thinking about all the stuff we have now.. it's all... boring stuff usually. Or things like beating a campaign, or killing a boss, and even the stuff for Battlefield or COD are typically boring since so many people do it.

It's a pity that most achievements are pointless as shit. I cant imagine the 100th collectable found will be a moment to remember or that it'll be much more exciting than another persons 100th collectable.

Even though i'm pretty indifferent to achievements/trophies, this will hopefully have a knock on effect of making devs put a little more imagination and skill into obtaining them.

Seems rather silly. The console already records the last five minutes, so you could always just save those last five minutes. Not every achievement is amazing to get so it seems like I'll be wasting more time deleting useless achievement videos than going to the upload studio and save. Hopefully it's a feature you can turn off.

Sorry but i don't really understand what they mean with the first part.

Xb1 records the last 5 minutes anyway, so does it mean the Xb1 just saves a 5 min vid on the hdd when an achievement is unlocked? Because how should the XB1 know when one achievment is going to be unlocked? I can have 99 of 100 cyrstals i need for the "Meth Cooker" achievement but the XB1 can't predict when i'm going to collect the 100th. ?

The reaction "mug shot" was a nice feature in Burnout Paradise but i don't know if people really react that much when an achievement/trophy gets unlocked. There are maybe some exceptions (like the "beat Zico" trophy in Wipeout HD)

It's always recording gameplay. So once you have unlocked the achievement, it will just snip out the five minutes leading up to unlocking the achievement and put it in its own video file.

Hmm depends on if your actually GOING for a specific achievement. I know in TF2 in Steam you can set three specific achievements at a time that are listed on the screen as you play.... and yes I have fist pumped before when I've got a inredibly tricky one such as...

Kill 100 heavies in 30 mins while killing 5 cloaked spies....wearing vintage hats....while taunting....as you build 20 senteries..... (ok I made that one up but you get the idea....).

Oh man, being able to "pin" achievements to the screen is so good. I haven't played in 2 years, but I STILL have over 80% (81%) of my achievements in that game unlocked. I was over 90% by the time I stopped playing.

EDIT: I forgot how much 2 Fort stacked my stats for my Engineer... it bumped off my more impressive stats. =[

This actually sounds nice. Even my more casual gaming friends still like to tell me of their times at making crazy last shots to kill enemies to desperately earn achievements, or to go over a history of some of the moments involved with earning them.

I generally give a "Woot!" when I earn an achievement that was actually a worthy accomplishment. Such as getting through a no-miss clear on a shooter stage, or beating a fighting game on harder difficulties with no continues. On the "Trophy" side, I felt great when I Platinum'd Gravity Rush + all it's DLCs.

Recording those moments, so you can look back on them, sounds nice. BUT....

...why is anyone complaining about the space it'll take up, or how no one wants to see these images? You can be VERY sure the games will have to ask your permission before uploading anything to a server. It's not like it'll just clog up your game page on the XB1 with the 1000s of achievement videos you earn over the system lifetime... you'll be able to view the content later, and decide if there's a reason for you to upload any of that for sharing yourself.

The fact it's separate from the last 5 min is a good thing, too. If I play a game for 3 hours, and I actually made 1 or 2 worthwhile accomplishments, being able to look at them all, and see if there's any I find memorable, is great.

Did anyone here play Phantasy Star Online? My friend and I used to laugh at the fact that the ending pictures (featuring your characters) were actual in-action screenshots of our gameplay whenever we beat the game. I can imagine XB1 using Game DVR to actually DO this, allowing it to play back your greatest gameplay moments during credits. (Some fighters already did this with death blows in past-gen fighters.)

I could see myself getting some fun out of this over the years...

Maybe if you've been trying to get it for a long time, but 95% of the time, people's reactions are along the lines of "Oh, hey. Cool."

Good idea. I'm curious to hear about the specifics, like how long before/after it includes with the recording.

itís possible for developers to use the Kinect camera to record a live reaction feed of the player at the time of an achievement unlock

Hmm, if devs have to build it into their games on their own, maybe we won't see it as much?

Assuming it's done well, a convenient "upload to Youtube/Facebook/whatever" would be a good way to get lots of videos promoting the games out there...

It's cool I guess, but it's not news. They announced this back at E3.

Actually, I was wrong. It was announced at the console reveal in May:

As announced on stage today, the Xbox One's "Game DVR" allows you to capture gameplay and share those videos over Xbox Live and elsewhere. There's also a video editor so you can adjust and clip your recordings. Additionally, as part of a revamped achievement system, clips of the moments before you unlock an award will be automatically recorded

It won't be automatic for every Achievement. It's a feature that Developers can unlock for achievements, OR, for instance, have hidden in the game for doing something cool or discovering something hidden. Basically we allow developers access to GameDVR and they can put conditions on an automatic recording.

But not every Achievement will automatically be recorded.

So, any way for the user to disable the Kinect from randomly recording video of themselves as well?

I do not think I have ever even smiled when I unlocked a trophy/achievement.

It isn't just for achievements, they can setup to record any moment dynamically.
I can think of a few occasions when I would have liked to see my reaction to something.
But mostly I would have liked to see the gameplay.

And if it saves it wouldn't that eat up your hdd space when you don't really want to save all those vids. I'm sure you can turn it off but why leave it on?

So if developers have access to the GameDVR to extend the recording time to over 5 minutes, does that mean it is possible to one day allow XBox One owners to manually record over 5 minutes too?
