The Xbox Series X Is Capable Of Streaming And Recording At 4K And 60 FPS

Some good news.

Livestreaming and gameplay recording has increasingly become an important feature for consoles. There is also no denying that many gamers love to stream and record their games. With that in mind, Microsoft has recently confirmed that its next-generation of consoles are stream-ready, and the Xbox Series X supports 4K, 60FPS streaming, and recording.

Even though Microsoft has shared new details on its upcoming consoles, the company did not expound upon this specific feature. The information came to light via a fact sheet that was provided to the media. The fact sheet states that Xbox Series X is capable of livestreaming and recording games at 4K and 60 FPS. However, the fact sheet doesn't mention the streaming and recording limitations of the Xbox Series S, but we assume that the console will at least offer 1080p, 60 FPS streaming, and recording.

It's also rather funny that Microsoft chose to include 4K streaming as there aren't many platforms that support 4K streaming, except YouTube and Microsoft's now discontinued Mixer streaming service. It seems that Microsoft was developing the Xbox Series X to work with the streaming service, but it's unfortunate that the service has now gone defunct. That leaves users wishing to stream their games at 4K quality with just one platform, YouTube.

Given that there is now a console that is capable of streaming at 4K, 60 FPS, it wouldn't be surprising to see new 4K streaming platforms emerging. There has also been news that Twitch will support 4K streaming eventually, which gives the Xbox Series X an edge when it comes to UHD streaming.

It is also worth noting that not everyone is capable of streaming at 4K and 60FPS at the moment. Even if a streamer is able to stream games at 4K quality, it doesn't mean that the viewer will be able to enjoy it without any issues. If 4K streaming has to operate smoothly, the infrastructure will need to expand accordingly.

The Xbox Series X is scheduled to launch on November 10.
