Ok, it’s not really called that, but hey, a man’s got to dream. For those of you that play Halo 3, this will be some rather cool news. And even if you don’t, it’s kind of a crazy step forward in terms of console conline communities go, that you can look forward to seeing in your favorite games down the road.
Bungie is adding a feature on their site in the near future that will allow Halo 3 players to upload their saved film files and then render them into WMV files. That’s right, you don’t need a capture card any longer to share your video clips with the Web.
Right now, saved films can only be played on a 360, but with this feature, users will instantly be able to upload and convert films. As far as consoles go, this seems to be way ahead of the curve in terms of connectivity and community. I have to say, I’m impressed. I wonder how their servers will hold up under that kind of bombardment.
Even though I only play Halo 3 occasionally, this is kind of cool news for that random game that I’d like to show somebody via YouTube. And it’s definitely really cool for people interested in making machinima that don’t have access to a capture card.
What about you guys? Thoughts? Will any of you actually use this feature?
