Live Streaming and Game Recording Features of Xbox One Detailed

Jack Gardner



The Xbox One unveil left a certain segment of the gaming population with questions about the console's ability to record gameplay sessions and share them with friends, or if the console would include that kind of functionality at all. With a recent app on Xbox 360 and an established history with Microsoft, many had suspected (myself included) suspected that a partnership with the online streaming service,, was in the works. Today those suspicions were confirmed.


Xbox One will be able to broadcast live gameplay sessions online to followers and friends. Players will also be able to record these sessions, save, edit, publish, and record commentary with the Kinect. Aside from streaming, the game recording abilities of the Xbox One allow you to view past recordings on SmartGlass.


While all of these features sound lovely, some people are wondering who owns the rights to those videos. Does Microsoft own them, or publish them on their own channel? Can you upload your videos to YouTube? If not, what does that mean for streamers and video game commentators, the people who make a living based on creating entertaining or educational videos based on video games? There are a number of questions that should be answered before giving in to the hype.
