Elgato announces Game Capture HD, shows off your deathmatch prowess in H.264
Elgato is releasing the Game Capture HD, a device that lets game-casters and YouTube walkthrough mavens shed low-resolution, over-the-shoulder smartphone footage once and for all. The sleek black box sits between console and display, enabling gamers to record their speed runs and kill records for the world to see. Xbox 360 users can daisy-chain the gear into their HDMI set-up, while PS3 users will have to use the bundled AV cable to circumvent Sony’s stronger copy protection. The footage will then be compressed with the company’s H.264 know-how and pushed to your PC or Mac for uploading. When it arrives at the start of June, it’ll set you back $200 — just giving you enough time to get practicing your soothing and confident narration voice.
