Video: Xbox One's Game DVR is great for video snapshots

Although perhaps not for more elaborate captures.

Digital Foundry is planning to put the video capture and streaming capabilities of both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One through their paces very soon, but in the meantime our YouTube editor Ian has been playing around with the tools and has some first impressions.

Here he gets to grips with Game DVR, the Xbox One system that allows you to record the last 30 seconds of gameplay by saying "Xbox record that". Is it any good? How does it compare to bespoke kit like the Elgato Game Capture HD? As this video shows, if nothing else it's a great way to highlight vehicle glitches in Dead Rising 3.
