Xbox One won’t be getting screenshots until next year


We know there’s a bunch of Xbox One updates coming soon, but one feature that still isn’t being included is the ability to take in-game screenshots.


According to IGN, Phil Spencer has said further updates will be paused over Christmas whilst thousands more consoles are brought online – a situation where Microsoft is going to want to be sure it is releasing stable software.

The screenshot feature should finally be coming next year though – bizarrely over a year after the Xbox One has been capable of streaming video (using the “Game DVR”). The PS4 has had an analogous feature since launch.
