Gaming can be a solitary enterprise. Just you, your console and the dim lights in the basement. But there are also times when you get that once in a blue moon moment which is worth sharing with your mates, if only to prove that you’re better than they think.
The Live Gamer Portable is a small device which delivers full game play recording which can be carried around in your pocket. Just plug it into your XBox, Playstation or PC and you can grab instant recording of your high score moments, best frags or just marvel at your dexterity with a small angry bird. It consumes around 7 GB of SD Card space for an hour’s gameplay at high resolution.
The device is powered from any USB port, so you can use it without a PC by recording direct to a high speed Class 10 SD Card in the slot. It connects to your consoles via HDMI or standard component A/V and comes with an HDMI pass through to connect to your TV or display.
The key thing is the fact that it captures, compresses at 1080p at 30fps, so there should be no jitters or artifacts marring your crucial gameplay moments and the large button on top gives instant one-click recording or streaming. Oh yes did we mention you can do live streaming as well using the supplied XSplit Broadcaster software? Great for LAN parties and other group fests. You can even add your own live commentary via hotkey or push to talk.
It ships with HDMI, USB, component, audio and Playstation 3 cables and is expected to retail for around €179 when released later this month.
