Xbox One screenshot feature won't be out until 2015

"It's a little more technically challenging than I thought."

Earlier this month Xbox boss Phil Spencer announced that the Xbox One would be getting a screenshot feature, but he's now clarified that it won't be ready until 2015.

"As we come back into the new year, we'll see new stuff, and screenshots is on the list," Spencer told IGN.

Apparently getting screenshots is more complex than just grabbing a frame of video. "It's a little more technically challenging than I thought," Spencer said. "Two weeks ago, they think they've found a good solution for screenshots. They're working on it. They know people want it. The team has a path to getting it done, and now it's just prioritising."

He also noted that Microsoft is working on reducing install times on the console.
