IGN are hosting an interactive interview where readers can ask Microsoft anything about the Xbox One ahead of the launch.

Some interesting facts have arisen, including the fact that while the Xbox One is fully capable of running at 1080p, the DVR recordings will record at 720p and the clips will be stored in the Cloud.

When asked about the DVR capabilities, Chief Xbox One platform architect, Marc Whitten replied:

“Game DVR captures beautiful clips at 720p 30fps. The first thing you’ll see with our game DVR is the integration of our Upload service on the console. This service allows you to manage, edit, and share your content. Your clips are stored in the cloud. Also, you’ll see games making “magic moment” videos of your gameplay based on the game DVR functionality – all seamlessly integrated. You’ll be able to see these clips in the Xbox One Guide, in your own game DVR collection, and when you are looking at gamercards on the system. You’ll also see games take advantage of this platform capability and do interesting things to integrate captured game footage into the game experience itself.”

Whitten also confirmed that we can carry our Xbox 360 avatars over, but that we will have some new options, including the ability to do full-body HD gamerpics.

The 64×64 gamerpics on Xbox 360 have also been upped to 1080p pics for the Xbox One.

“They are beautiful, and you are going to see some really cool hero moments, like when you login to see personalized views of your games and other content,” confirmed Whitten.
