Albert Penello who is leading the planning for the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Kinect at Microsoft has shared some  interesting information about the company’s next generation gaming console.

Do you remember the good old HD DVD? It was a media format that was heavily pushed by Toshiba. Microsoft even included a HD DVD add on for the Xbox 360 that can play movies and other forms of media. However it lost the format war to Blu Ray. Sony was one of the supporters for Blu Ray and the decision to include one in every PS3 was to make the format more common.

But what about the folks who have a HD DVD and want to use it with the Xbox One? After all it should support since it is a USB device. A HD DVD owner asked the same question to Penello. He replied with the following:

So there you go, no HD DVD support for the Xbox One.

One of the interesting features of the Xbox One is the ability to record gameplay footage. As of right now this can be done manually via the controller but since the Xbox One comes packed with Kinect, will it be possible to record via voice commands? Nope. Atleast, not at launch.

Furthermore, Penello has reassured fans that Xbox One supply at launch will be better than the Xbox 360’s.

Microsoft’s Xbox One will launch on November 22nd.
