Xbox One DVR clips can only be shared through Xbox Live upon launch and not YouTube or Facebook, new reports indicate.
Destructoid reports that social network sharing will not be available on the Xbox One until 2014.
"So the idea is that you're always recording. We have a ring buffer game DVR basically, so the last five minutes of any game you're playing is always being stored locally on your hard drive," Ken Lobb, creative director at Microsoft said to CVG.
The DVR system will work by the console recording the last 30 seconds of every game being played and will use a Kinect voice command to begin recording 720p clips.
Videos can be edited in the app, Xbox One Upload Studio, and uploaded to Xbox Live for now.
"Let me give you two scenarios. Scenario one: I'm playing online and I just did the best thing ever. I can't pause [because] I'm playing online. You can say 'Xbox, record that', it'll grab the last 30 seconds and save it for you to play with later."
"So now let's say you're not playing online and you do the best combo or you have the best fight ever," Lobb continued. "You can finish after that fight, that thing you just did is within the last five minutes, you can go into that last five minutes and scrub it for the best stuff - I want that four seconds and this ten seconds and this 30 seconds and then I want that ultra combo."
Xbox One revealed an Xbox Live Gold subscription will be needed to use the DVR system as well as Skype and a number of social networking functions.
One subscription will cover both the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One. Other key features users will have access to are the NFL on Xbox, two free games a month, Netflix, HBO Go, Skype, and Xbox One's SmartMatch System, reported Forbes.
