AverMedia Launches the Game Capture HD II Dylan Duarte September 24, 2013 Press Release 1 Comment 5 Flares 5 Flares × The timing of this press release is highly coincidental, as I've been playing a lot of Grand Theft Auto V and have been dying to record and show off some of my crazier escapes. AverMedia Technologies is proudly launching the Game Capture HD II today, which allows console gamers to record footage, then edit and share the footage right from the device. The Game Capture HD II supports the PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii U, Xbox 360, and the upcoming Xbox One, though the PlayStation 4 is curiously missing from the press release. The device supports resolutions up to 1080p, which will supposedly be powerful enough for the next generation of consoles. The device works in conjunction with the 2013 Red Dot Award-winning iOS app GameMate, which allows users to check recording status and do a few other things. An Android version of the app is coming soon. The Game Capture HD II is currently retailing for $164 on NewEgg, with the Amazon listing saying it's out of stock. Check out the press release below.
