Xbox One picks up the ability to record games in 60 fps

I don't think anyone can fault Microsoft for the break-neck speed at which it has been updating the Xbox One feature-set. So far this month, preview members have picked up the ability to wirelessly display other devices onto their Xbox One via Miracast, among other smaller features.

Next up, Xbox One preview members will be able to use the in-built Game DVR to capture gameplay footage at 60 fps.

The news broke last night, as some members of the community noticed that some of their games were recording at 60 fps. Naturally, only games that run at 60 frames per second will support this, such as Battlefield 4, Killer Instinct and so on.

A bunch of users have been uploading clips at 60 fps to their profiles on, but for a quick example check out the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare clip from L'épée Légendaire below:

Note: You may need to enable 720p60 in the quality setting in the player, and even then YouTube may only display 60 fps on a stable enough connection.

If you're unable to watch the embed, you can check out the same clip on here, which also displays at 60 frames per second.

The next logical step is allowing games to record at their maximum resolution or even 1080p up-scaled, time will tell if we're to receive that functionality.

Xbox One owners have a rich roadmap of new features to look forward to in the coming months, including streaming from your Xbox to Windows 10 devices and a rumoured TV DVR function.
