As consoles grow more powerful, the video creators amongst us look for new ways to capture gameplay at the highest quality. With the PS4 Pro and Xbox Scorpio boasting 4K capabilities, and consumer grade recording equipment being limited to 1080p, there’s soon to be a bigger demand for a device that can handle UHD video.

Happily, it looks like Elgato Gaming is on the case. Following a query from JackFrags on Twitter, the company responded with a shifty eyes emoji, hinting at what they are likely working on.

I have to wonder if we’ll see one giant leap of 4K 60fps support, or maybe an initial step into 4K with only 30fps recording. Though most games won’t be able to achieve both 4K resolution and a frame-rate of 60, some games will.

If you don’t know what the big fuss is about 4K and/or 60fps, you could always check out this Versus episode, which should tell you all you need to know.

Obviously, we at PlayStation LifeStyle are very excited about bringing 4K gaming content to you via our YouTube channel, so be sure to get subscribed if you aren’t already!

What do you make of this news? Glad to hear that at least one of these capture card companies is on the case? Let us know, down below.
