Game DVR, a feature that will allow players to record gameplay directly through the console, will be exclusive to Gold subscribers, as will Skype
and Smart Match matchmaking
These features are in addition to the established parameters of Xbox Live Gold set on Xbox 360: Premium entertainment apps like Netflix will still require it, as will online multiplayer and those coming live NFL broadcasts
. Microsoft hasn't said if self-publishing
will require Gold.
The Xbox One is slated to launch this November for $500
in North America, €500 in Europe and £430 in the United Kingdom. The Xbox One will initially be available in 21 different markets.
