Your skills. Immortalized.

The gaming experience is all about sharing. With Elgato Game Capture HD, you can record and stream your Xbox or PlayStation gameplay and share your journey with friends, fans and generations to come.

Be the best.

Elgato Game Capture HD uses advanced hardware H. 264 encoding to capture your gameplay in stunning 1080p Full HD, while keeping the file size low. At the same time, your console’s picture is passed through to your TV via HDMI, so you can keep on enjoying your game on the big screen – in pristine quality, without delay.

Be efficient.

Elgato Game Capture HD doesn’t need a lot of cables or even a power supply to record your game: With direct PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 input, you can use a single cable to connect it to your console. And since it’s only about the size of a deck of cards, you can be sure it will not intimidate your other gaming gear.


Elgato Game Capture HD
Flashback Recording feature to record retroactively

Be prepared.

You never know when a moment worth capturing arises. With Flashback Recording, Elgato Game Capture HD has your back. Flashback Recording lets you timeshift your gameplay, so that you can simply slide back in time on your Mac or PC and hit the record button retroactively. Re-living greatness has never been this easy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 13 Dec 2012
Having used 2 other capture cards (EasyCap - terrible, Roxio Game Capture - okay), I was quite scared of wasting more money on equipment but after using this for about a hundred videos, I have to say, this is the best piece of equipment I've ever used! It's tiny, easy to move and easy to set up. It works astoundingly well even though my computer is under the minimum requirements!
The file size is small for a high quality 720p video file (can do 1080p but I see no point for me) and the software is FANTASTIC. With the recent update that adds voice commentary and streaming, I see no reason to ever choose anything over this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply amazing 17 July 2012
By MyKeyReviews TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Length: 9:30 Mins
When it comes to capturing gameplay from your consoles, you want as good quality as you can get so you can show your friends or the world those amazing moments in detail.

The problem is there are so many different game captures to choose from these days such as Roxio, AverMedia, Hauppauge +more, that it can be a daunting task to choose the right one.

Whilst I can't comment on the others being bad or good due to the fact I haven't personally tried them myself, I can safely say that 'Elgato Game Capture HD' offers simple connectivity, ease of use and very high quality.

So what's in the box?:
Game Capture Device | AV Cable(PS3) | Unencrypted HDMI Cable(Xbox or use as pass-through) | Component Cable | Micro USB - USB cable.

Minimum system requirements:
* Mac: Mac OS X 10.7, 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU.
* PC: Windows 7, 2.0 GHz dual core CPU.
* Sound card | 4 GB RAM | Built-in USB 2.0 port | You will also need an internet connection to download the software from Elgato's official website as there is no software disk included.

- - -

Setting everything up was extremely simple:

Step 1) Download the game captures software.

Step 2) Connect your console to the 'Game Capture HD' using the appropriate cable:

- PS3: You need to use the AV cable rather than HDMI cable, this is because the PS3's HDMI port is encrypted (You can still get 1080i quality).
- Xbox: Use the HDMI cable provided.

Video Setup / Tutorial / Comparison: [...]
This is one of the best capture cards on the market as it is far smaller then a hd prv and a hd pvr 2. You also don't meed to plug this in at the mains as it gets its power from the usb port. This has a higher bit rate then the hd pvr so will loo a lot better and can achieve full 1080p quality for an xbox or 1080i for ps3. It comes with all the cables you need for either a ps3 or an xbox 360 however if you want to record a wii or other device you will have to buy the correct cable. The software on this device is fantastic and much better then any of its competitors as it offers flashback recording and the ability to live stream directly from the program, furthermore its in build editing software is easy to use, effective and able to work on both pc and mac. I honestly can't say how impressed with this I am however please note you need a better computer then the hd pvr to get this to work; the minimum requirements is a windows 7 pc with a 2.0ghz duel core processor and 4gb or ram. Fpr mac you need Mac OS X 10.7, 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU.

You won't be disappointed with this, you may want to like Elgatos facebook as they post various offers that only last a few hours. I got mine for 109

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, high quality product 30 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase
I have tried the hauppauge hd pvrs and found them to have loads of faults including constant signal loss causing only small recordings, this was also caused by the unit constantly overheating. The Elgato Game Capture Hd is the opposite, no signal loss whatsoever, excellent quality video, the unit has been used all day and not overheated or malfunctioned in any way. It is extremely easy to set up, you can be recording in just a few minutes, the software seems a little more basic than the hauppauge but it has all you need all nice and tidy and easy to find. This unit also records in 1080p and 30mbps which is more than double what the hauppauge can do! I just wish I had heard of this before I got the hauppauge because I wouldn't have wasted my time with it! Well done Elgato for producing an easy to use, user friendly high quality product, highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Game Recorder! 19 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
I would highly recommend this product to anyone wanting to record game footage, after having purchased the HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition i found it too long to set up, didn't always work and decided to sell it, giving me enough money to buy the elgato. I thought i'd invest in the product as starting up a youtube channel for video game commentaries, and this is by far the best game recorder money can buy. Easy to use, small, and very few wires meaning it takes just 25 seconds to set up on my laptop. Love it! :D
