Xbox One DVR Won’t Record Every Achievement

Xbox One DVR Won’t Record Every Achievement

Developers have the ability to turn on the feature for certain achievements.

Yesterday it was reported that Xbox One would capture video footage of every achievement that’s unlocked while playing a game, but Microsoft’s Director of product planning Albert Panello moved to correct the erroneous information on NeoGAF.

“It won’t be automatic for every Achievement,” he said. “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.”

Here’s how it works: developers can mark “greatest clips” that happen within the game, such as when you unlock an Achievement. Alternatively, gamers can use their voice or the controller to capture moments they’d like to record.
