But what PVR do you go for? Will you have a computer hooked up to it to record to?
Shipping online from the 2nd of November, Hauppauge launches the HD PVR Rocket, a standalone unit, which when coupled to a USB connected external hard drive or flash drive can record gameplay while simultaneously recording commentary.
Without needing to hook up additional hardware to record to, the Rocket will fit anyone worried about space and at £139.99, setup costs.
Using a PVR myself, the hardest thing about them is storing the hours of gameplay that can come out of a single session. The Rocket’s different. Using H.264 to compress the footage, Hauppauge claim to get 4 hours of gameplay onto a 16GB USB drive without sacrificing video quality. Gamers can do all this while recording a commentary track through the inbuilt audio mixer with either a microphone or headset through the microphone input.
After all this is done, all you need to do is edit the footage, which can be done through the Hauppauge Capture software, and post it on Youtube
