Microsoft are no longer planning on adding the TV DVR feature to the Xbox One any more. Originally announced back at Gamescom 2015, the feature would have allowed users to record local TV onto their console so that they could view it later, even while playing a game.
However, a Microsoft spokesperson giving a statement to The Verge revealed that they want to focus more on games than TV:
“After careful consideration, we’ve decided to put development of DVR for Over-the-Air TV on hold to focus our attention on launching new, higher fan-requested gaming experiences across Xbox One and Windows 10. We’re always listening to fan feedback and we look forward to bringing more requested experiences on Xbox One, Windows 10 and Xbox Live this year.”
It’s clear that Microsoft’s priorities are firmly back on gaming with its Xbox One console, and personally, I couldn’t be happier. Good riddance.
