For all you folks out there that are looking for a way to share that ridiculously long killstreak from COD, the massive dunk from NBA 2K or any other outrageous game achievement that you have done then this might just be for you. The Roxio Game Capture and Roxio PC Game Capture offer a straightforward way for gamers to quickly and easily capture and share PC and console game play videos. In-product tutorials help everyone get set up quickly and immediately begin to capture and showcase their latest campaigns, adventures, ball skills, and race sequences. Gamers may use the products to post their high scores, tips & tricks, game reviews, or even a feature-length movie based on game play footage. We are looking to get our hands on this so stay tuned for a full review some time down the road.While this isn’t Hauppauge HD PVR or anything, it seems like it’s a nice introductory software to help folks determine if this is something they even want to do seriously and runs about a $100 less than the Hauppauge. I really do feel some kind of way about it only being able to record in 480p when a lot of console games today play at a much higher resolution than that but as I said you can use this to decide if it’s worth investing more money into something more robust.
Rovi offers two unique products that enable both console and PC gamers to capture, edit, and share game play videos:
For Console Gamers:
Roxio Game Capture is a hardware and software combination for recording and sharing console game play and is priced at $99.99.
- Roxio Game Capture enables the real-time capture of game play videos from Xbox 360 and PS3. Users may play games in full HD on the TV, while recording the content to the PC. The quick-to-set up USB hardware capture device includes component video and stereo audio inputs, and ships with a component, RCA audio, and USB cables*. Users can record game play in 480p and output to AVI, WMV, DivX, and MP4. Still image screen shots can be saved as JPG, PNG, TIFF, BMP or GIF file types.
For PC Gamers:
Roxio PC Game Capture is a complete software solution for quickly recording and posting PC game play and is priced at $49.99.
- Roxio PC Game Capture allows users to record PC game play footage in real-time. Video sequences and still images can be captured in HD at full screen resolutions. The application supports DirectX® 8-10 and OpenGL based PC games. Compared with other offerings, Roxio PC Game Capture not only provides a more complete solution (including features for capturing, editing, and posting in one package), but also enables gamers to spend less time managing and posting files and more time playing.
Both Roxio Game Capture and Roxio PC Game Capture ship with an uncomplicated, yet full-featured video editor that lets users turn raw game play footage into an engaging video complete with transitions, commentary, background music tracks, and titles.. The products include simple upload features for directly posting completed videos to major online communities including Facebook, WeGame, and YouTube. Roxio Game Capture products are Windows® 7/Vista™/XP compatible and optimized for maximum video encoding performance through support for the latest NVIDIA® CUDA and ATI Stream™ technologies. In addition, Roxio Game Capture products leverage Intel® Enhanced for Core™ technologies like Intel® Quick Sync Video to provide a great game play capture, conversion, encode, and sharing experience.
Roxio Game Capture will be available March 24th at www.roxio.com/gamecapture. Roxio PC Game Capture will be available in the second quarter. Both products will be offered at major North American online and retail outlets including Amazon, BestBuy.com, and GameStop.com.
