Microsoft working on universal video capture?

Microsoft may be working on a universal Halo 3-like video capture tool for the Xbox 360. The information comes from an unnamed developer who appears to have slipped up during an interview with Kotaku. “We’d love to have video capture in our game, but why work on something that the platform holder is already developing,” the dev said when asked if their game will feature in-game video capture.

When asked about the concept, Microsoft’s director of digital games Scott Austin didn’t comment on the specific feature but did say they’re “always thinking about ways that Live at the platform level can make games better” and that we can assume they’re “thinking about ways to make things more interactive.”

“When innovation becomes table stakes we want to move forward. We want to make all entertainment services more rich with our live services,” Austin concluded.

We’re hopeful that translates to a ‘yeah, we’re working on it but can’t say so.’
