Xbox 720 DVR features confirmed by patent?

Microsoft's next-generation games console is edging ever nearer with a new patent suggesting the long rumoured Xbox 720 will boast DVR features

 

The long rumoured Xbox 720 might be a little close than expected and be prepping to pack a flurry of new features with a new patent suggesting the next-gen console will boast digital video recorder capabilities.

Offering a potentially tantalising hint at the nature of the long mooted Xbox 720 the newly awarded patent was granted to Microsoft on December 27th despite being originally filed in 2007 and will allows the company to further fuse the relationship of games consoles and televised and streamed content.

Xbox 720 Rumours

Expected to be introduced to the next-generation Xbox 720 as a means of further bolstering the impressive TV content packing dashboard the new patent covers “A digital video recorder (DVR) application running alongside a television client component [which] allows users to record media content on the gaming console.”

The patent rulings go on to detail “The DVR application also integrates itself with the console menu.”

“Once integrated, users can record media content while playing games. Alternatively, users can record content when the gaming console is turned off. The recorded content can include television programming, gaming experience (whether local or online), music, DVDs, and so on. When in the recording state, users can also switch between various other media modes, whether gaming, television, and so on.”
