FIFA 14 on Xbox One will automatically record key events in the game, such as scoring a goal and good saves, making the action available to view from the Xbox menu, EA has told Sportra.

It's a feature missing from the PS4 version, which instead relies on the console's automatic recording feature, allowing players to access and edit events from the previous 15 minutes with a press of the DualShock 4's share button.

The key difference is that PS4 users may have to stop or pause their game in order to access and edit a clip so not to lose the magic moment for ever – something which may not be possible if playing an online match.

For more on the next-gen FIFA 14 experience check out our recent hands-on.

FIFA 14 will be available November 22 for Xbox One and November 29 for PS4.

A poorly written and bias story.

Personally I prefer the 15 min of footage to pick my best moments from. I want to pick how much footage before a goal I choose and not have that decision made for me.

hmmm. Could be another use for the cloud, though. Why save to hard drive when you can save direct to the cloud? Problem solved. (no, Microsoft, you don't have to thank me, just send me a shiny Xbox One in the post...)

That is a valid argument however you are forgetting that if you want that sort of capture you can do that on the XB1 too. It always records last 5 minutes or 15 if you want. The time saving here is in the editing of the good stuff.

Like you say currently the highlights are tiny but surely the recent next gen preview article supply's us with enough meat to understand that the automated playbacks are much better on next gen. However I agree that if it is anything like this Gen you'll lose half the game play.

15 minutes for an online game is more than enough. Each part is 6 minutes, so if we start recording at the first whistle, adding time outs, repetions and the half time, 15 minutes is more than enough.

ALSO, and this is really the kicker, if the stuff that gets automaticly saved in XBOXONE is the typical end game selectable match highlights from the current versions of the game, we are talking about… 5 seconds videos, that more than often miss the bulk of the play.

So, without much clarification, 15 minutes SHARE button, TOPS auto save XBOX One. TOTALY. And without a doubt.

Think this is down to the way in which each manufacturer has opened up their features to the developers. Obviously MS have given the control of the record feature set to the developer where as Sony is currently a more closed system where the resource currently has to be accessed manually. This maybe something that they look at in a later firmware patch if it is deemed successful on the XB1.

Personally I like the thought of an automated system but I can also see the drawbacks as it could mean that the game swallows storage so you'd constantly be clearing up the bits you didn't want. Unless at the end of the game it gives you the option to bin or keep the special events in the game.
