Elgato Game Capture HD Review

GAMING ACTION AS ENTERTAINMENT

Like watching gaming videos on YouTube like ‘Lets play” and have considered creating and uploading your own ‘Let’s Play’ videos? I found the perfect hardware for you! After purchasing the ELGATO GAME CAPTURE HD I must admit, it is a great piece of hardware.


PLUG, PLAY AND CAPTURE

The hardware is easy to install and use. Connect your gaming console to the capture device, then connect via USB to your computer and finally, a connection to your tv. Simple to setup. The biggest surprise of all, NO EXTERNAL POWER SUPPLY. The capture device must be receiving just enough power through USB as I have no other idea where the capture would get power from.

SIMPLE SOFTWARE

Easy to use software. The software is very easy to ease and works. Even though software is not included in the box, it must be downloaded from ELGATO’s website..possibly to insure that the latest version is installed. The software is clearly labeled and not only captures your gaming sessions, but provides simple video editing features.


TRAVEL BACK IN TIME

Flash Back Recording, an awesome feature! If you happen to have your Elgato Game Capture HD connected but NOT recording, but end up running through a mission you want to share, you can actually go back in time and start recording from the beginning of your mission; all this thanks to the Flash Back Recording which buffers your gaming play when NOT recording.


YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR, AWESOMENESS!

The price. While the Elgato Game Capture HD isn’t the cheapest capture device on the market it certainly is one of the BEST if not THE BEST game capture device currently on the market. Elgato’s Game Capture HD is well worth the money, it flawlessly captures game play in excellent quality without lag directly to your computer and it just works right out of the box.


NOTHING ELSE TO BUY

Complete package. The Elgato Game Capture HD also comes complete with all the cables you need to capture game play from PlayStation 3 or XBox 360. No need to run out and purchase any extra cables.

Elgato’s Game Capture HD also captures retro gaming consoles like Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and Sega Master System. To capture retro console game play, you need to purchase extra cables since device setup will be different than capturing game play from current generation consoles.

In conclusion, if game capturing is something you’re interested in, don’t hesitate purchasing your own Elgato Game Capture HD device; it’s fantastic and a MUST BUY.

Over at the OUYA forum, I found a ‘tidbit’ of information for fans of old school retro games.

According to the developer of  EMUya, the NES emulator  has already been submitted for review and should be available on the the OUYA at launch (March 28th). SNES & N64 fans will have a options as well. Both the  SuperGNES SNES emulator , and  Mupen64Plus N64 Emulator , will also be ported over to the OUYA. We have confirmed that the Mupen64Plus emulator will be available at launch. On top of this, today, we’ve learned via  twitter  that one developer is even working on an N-Gage emulator for the console.
