1080p 60fps Capture for Xbox One & Playstation 4

Published on October 31, 2013, by in Gaming, Tech.

Arthur asked me about 1080p capture for next-gen systems. Right after that I got a bunch of new Twitter followers. So it seems like people are interested. I figured I’d refresh my memory and throw up a list in an hour or so. Nope. Two days later, I have discovered that it’s pretty difficult to

It’s the End of Game Capture As We Know It

How’s that for a clickbait headline, huh? Sadly, it’s also pretty much true. Yesterday both Sony and Microsoft held their E3 press conferences. I won’t bore you with the details, but there were big screens, lots of games, and less dubstep than one might expect. But we also finally got a look at the PS4

Did Call of Duty’s YouTube Streaming Break Already?

As probably all gamers know, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 releases on 11/13/2012. Here in America, that’s tomorrow; elsewhere in the world, that’s today. Since I’m interesting in their crazy new built-in streaming features, I went looking around YouTube for some streams from people who already got the game. Well, I found some. None

The Weird Legality of Video Game Streaming

Saw this Tweet from Twitch.tv a few weeks ago: For those picking up Dead or Alive 5 tonight, please do not broadcast until 6AM PDT, September 25, per Tecmo’s request. Thank you! — Twitch (@TwitchTV) September 24, 2012 Now I’m not active in the Twitch community, so this is probably more surprising to me than

Google is Understanding the Modern Gamer

Published on September 24, 2012, by in Gaming.

Today Google published a whitepaper called Understanding the Modern Gamer. It’s a really interesting read, and doesn’t contain the subtle racism of a Nielsen report on the same topic. I was first caught by this quote from the second paragraph: Search data analysis is representative of gamer behavior for 2 reasons: (1) millions of gamers use search engines,

The Roxio HD Pro: The Low-Budget Gameplay Capture Winner?

Last week I posted an article comparing every video game recording solution that matters. My pick for the low-budget category was the Hauppauge HD-PVR line – hardware H.264 capture via USB, with support for both component and HDMI, for around $150. You may have noticed that Roxio was absent from that list. That’s because I

Twitch.tv Powering Call of Duty Live Streaming

  Today TechCrunch reported that Twitch has raised $15 million in venture capital. That’s fine on its own, but what caught my eye in the article were actually two unrelated bits: Twitch doesn’t just want to make it easier for gamers to stream their e-sports matchups to viewers, with one-click access that it’s added to

Video Game Recording Hardware Round-Up

I get a lot of people asking me about the best way to capture gameplay. It’s not a simple answer: there’s a wide range of options, from very consumer-focused products all the way up to the same stuff TV shows and movies use. Your own “best way” is going to be determined by your specific

Nielsen: Gaming Consoles Are Important, Women Watch More TV Than Men

Last week, Nielsen released its Cross-Platform Report for Q1 2012, detailing the viewing habits of Americans across all screens. There’s a ton of interesting stats in the report, so I’d encourage you to read the whole thing – but I know you probably won’t, so here’s the stuff I found interesting: In Q1 2012, Americans
