xbox-one-hands-on-review-05One of the Xbox One’s features announced last year was that it would have TV DVR capabilities, meaning that users could record (free-to-air) TV shows on their console. Given that consoles have started to include more features that aren’t strictly related to gaming, this move made sense and earlier this year, there were reports that the feature was already being tested.

However if you were hoping to see the feature arrive on your console anytime soon, think again because it looks like Microsoft has decided to scrap those plans, and while they did not say it was gone for good, based on their statement given to The Verge, it certainly doesn’t look like it will be returning anytime soon.

The statement reads, “After careful consideration, we’ve decided to put development of DVR for Over-the-Air TV on hold to focus our attention on launching new, higher fan-requested gaming experiences across Xbox One and Windows 10. We’re always listening to fan feedback and we look forward to bringing more requested experiences on Xbox One, Windows 10 and Xbox Live this year.”

As The Verge points out, it sounds like Microsoft is trying to focus more on the gaming aspects of its console. In fact according to the rumors, we can expect Microsoft to unveil an upgraded version of the Xbox One at E3 2016.
