Xbox One Live Sub Required to Use DVR (IGN.com)

This is unfortunate, but I guess not completely surprising. As I won’t be using the DVR features, it won’t affect my gameplay experience much.

******************************
An Xbox Live Gold subscription  is required to use Xbox One‘s DVR game-capture and video sharing functionality. Gold members will also have access to Skype and Smart Match multiplayer matchmaking, of course, as online play requires a Gold subscription.

Xbox Live Gold’s one-year membership costs $60 in North America, and Xbox 360 users’ existing Gold accounts will unlock access to Skype, DVR, Smart Match, and more when Xbox One releases this November. Currently, Xbox Gold members can get Crackdown for free on Xbox 360.

Xbox One’s DVR captures clips at 30 frames per second in 720p, Microsoft recently told IGN. For more on how Xbox Live works on Xbox One, check out IGN’s detailed wiki guide. Will you upgrade to Gold for game capture and sharing capabilities, or are you an existing member looking forward to the features? Let us know in the comments below.
