Your skills. Immortalized.
The gaming experience is all about sharing. With Elgato Game Capture HD, you can record and stream your Xbox or PlayStation gameplay and share your journey with friends, fans and generations to come.
Be the best.
Game Capture HD uses advanced hardware H.264 encoding to capture your gameplay in stunning 1080p Full HD, while keeping the file size low. At the same time, your console’s picture is passed through to your TV via HDMI, so you can keep on enjoying your game on the big screen – in pristine quality, without delay.
Game Capture HD doesn’t need a lot of cables or even a power supply to record your game: With direct PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U input, you can use a single cable to connect it to your console. And since it’s only about the size of a deck of cards, you can be sure it will not intimidate your other gaming gear.
You never know when a moment worth capturing arises. With Flashback Recording, Elgato Game Capture HD has your back. Flashback Recording lets you timeshift your gameplay, so that you can simply slide back in time on your Mac or PC and hit the record button retroactively. Re-living greatness has never been this easy.
Use any microphone that’s connected to your computer, find the perfect balance with your game audio and even automatically lower the volume of your game whenever you speak. With the Live Commentary feature, all of this is only a click away. Now it’s up to you to think of something brilliant to say.
Elgato Game Capture HD, it’s not just about you and the game anymore. With one click, you can share your gameplay with your friends and fans on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. Even better, the tailor-made Elgato Game Capture HD software allows you to quickly trim your gaming scenes and pass them on to your favorite editing software.

There are now two device options to choose from:
1) Elgato Game Capture HD: The first model which is what my review is based on. This model supports devices via its HDMI & A/V inputs. This one is more suited for the last generation of consoles and prior such as the PlayStation 3 & Xbox 360. You can only record up to 30fps with this device.
2) Elgato Game Capture HD60 Featuring just HDMI inputs, this is made for the newer generation of consoles such as the PlayStation 4 & Xbox One... Well basically anything that supports HDMI. This newer version can also record up to 1080p 60fps!
Below you will find my original review for the Elgato Game Capture HD, followed by any updates I've made thereafter. It's a long review, however I hope it will help you make the right decision based on your needs.
♦ Introduction ♦
When it comes to capturing gameplay from your consoles, you want as good quality as you can get so you can show your friends or the world those amazing moments in detail.
The problem is there are so many different game captures to choose from these days such as Roxio, AverMedia, Hauppauge +more, that it can be a daunting task to choose the right one.Read more ›
- Great Quality
- Small in size
- Easy set up
- Comes with HDMI cable
- Can record last 5 minutes if you forgot to press record
- Can record commentary along with footage
- Can live stream
- If you really are into editing videos, you will need your own editing software. The software that comes with this only has a few features. You can split clips, rename clips, screenshot clips, and that's basically it. You can't even make clips into a montage.
- The commentary is a great feature. But you can't edit your voice once it's recorded. So if you farted or sneeze and wanted to cut that out, it will be stuck there.
The straight dope: IF YOU JUST WANT TO RECORD GAMEPLAY BUY THIS OVER A PVR IT IS THE PERFECT DEVICE.

This short and sweet review of this device is: Buy this over the Happauge HD-PVR or Eye TV I feel it's just a superior unit for capturing gameplay no extra pieces of equipment are required like with the other products that I mentioned. It's compact and just simply passes your signal directly to your TV and allows you to capture all your gameplay and just jump back simply if you need to grab a clip. I feel that Elgato has been paying attention the gaming community on YouTube and is bought out one of the better products for us to use. The price at the time of this review is $190 about on par with HD PVR's you might be considering and this works seamlessly with Mac and PC as the software is provided for both so to me it's a no-brainer.
Another very cool feature is that it does HDMI recording on the Xbox on the PS3 you need to use a special cable they provide. But I'll discuss that more below.
My only complaint (and it's not really a complaint) is that it doesn't capture 1080p and only 1080i.Read more ›
It's awesome, records 1080p over HDMI at flawless framerates as well as high bitrate, manages source resolution changes in the middle of recording surprisingly well, good audio that's properly synchronized, and doesn't need any excessive cables to operate (low-profile). This is a very good product that is perfect for people who want to record gameplay or any HDMI device that doesn't have HDCP encryption (until Elgato decides to include an HDMI splitter in the recording device or the user has their own). It earns 5-stars as a recording/livestreaming device, not video editing software.
A lot more details:
The image quality is like the source (check included pic) and he recording bitrate is quite high relative to YouTube's recommendations. YouTube's recommended bitrates for 60 FPS are on the left and my recording results are on the right, also at 60 FPS.
360p: YT~1.5 Mbps | HD60~N/A
480p: YT~4 Mbps | HD60~11 Mbps
720p: YT~7.5 Mbps | HD60~20 Mbps
1080p: YT~12 Mbps | HD60~40 Mbps
1440p: YT~24 Mbps | HD60~N/A
2160p: YT~53-68 Mbps | HD60~N/A
You may need some more hard disk space if you decide to record in a higher bitrates/resolutions. Cool thing is that the bitrate is high enough that it would be worthwhile to upsample the video to a higher resolution if you're using YouTube to allow the video player to output the higher bitrate to improve video quality.
It should be mentioned that you can record interlaced (I tried 1080i), but only at 30 FPS. It is strongly apparent that the HD60 automatically deinterlaces the video (based off of the output video properties which was set to export at MP4). Major pluses for that.Read more ›
