As the new Xbox One release date draws near, Microsoft is getting aggressive in their marketing for Xbox One. People might have thought that since the Game DVR and Adaptive A.I feature is so prominently featured on the main ad, it might be included in every game. As it turns out, the support for both features depends on the games and its developers.

Both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One feature the ability to record and share videos of your games to others. Xbox One has a 5 minutes limit on recording while PlayStation 4 can record upto 15 minutes of a clip.  Game DVR on Xbox One also requires a Gold subscription, which really sounds strange but since the clip is uploaded to the cloud, maybe, they are charging for storage on cloud?

As much as Microsoft is trying to push out Adaptive A.I, we think it will mostly be limited to first party games. The disclaimer on the official Microsoft site has also somehow confirmed this. It reads: “Adaptive AI and Game DVR available in supported games”. So you want to find out if a game supports this “Adaptive A.I” or not, take a look at the back of the box to see if it does.

Shocking.

A feature (game DVR) and a game design (AI through the cloud) is up to the developer. of said game.

Oh my to this thread.



I wouldn't read to much into this, On PS4 devs can also choose to turn off DVR capabilities during parts of the game if they like, more than likely just the same thing.



The hell is Adaptive A.I again?

I still don't understand how that's supposed to work.

Surprised that game DVR isn't universal (though is it for PS4?). But completely expected that adaptive AI is not universal.

Wonderful thread. Things we already knew + some (of course negative) speculation. Thumbs up.

Its another way of saying, Cloud gaming. lol

I think the point of the article is trying to make is that Microsoft is advertising that you get cloud servers, and that you can upload the last 5mins of gameplay on every game when it is in fact restricted to certain games, and that you need live gold account to do those things.

Might be universal if the devs have the resources and habilities (+ the need or desire) to implemente such feature.



"Microsoft not forcing developers to implement Game DVR and Adaptive AI" would suit better if you read the small prints.

"Supported" doesn't really match with "restricted"/"selected".

it's universal on ps4 although developers are allowed to disable the feature at times (for spoilers i guess). it's not tied to ps+.  it's availible offline.

as for xbone,. MS hasn't been quite clear on how the feature technically works afaik.  i'm not sure if the clip stores to the local harddrive or cloud.  if pushed to the cloud the disclaimer would make sense (unavailble for offline games) even if for most it is "universal".  i really, really doubt that MS would make developers have to code the feature into their game so i'm going to go with universally implemented* **.

* requires xbox live gold account
