USB Microphone For PS4

If your after a cheap USB microphone to use with your PS4 a good alternative to the Snowball range of microphones which are great just a little bit expensive for me is the Kinobo Mini "AKIRO" which is only about £9 on Amazon Link To Buy

I've been using a AKIRO for a few weeks now and everyone i've spoken to has said i sound nice and clear so gets a thumbs up from me

Also if like me you do gaming videos for YouTube using a USB microphone plugged into your PS4 lets you record gamer chat in lobbies so if you have say a Hauppauge Rocket like i do all you have to do is plug the AKIRO into your PS4 and in the PS4 settings you send all audio to your TV and then just plug a set of headphones into your TV, you will still need an extra mic plugged into your Rocket to record your voice

Quick And Easy Way To Edit Your Gaming Captures / Videos

Video showing you a quick and easy way to edit your gaming captures using VideoRedo

Been using VideoReDo for years to edit my TV captures ie to edit out ad's which also works great for doing fast edits of your gaming captures so you can get them uploaded to YouTube

Software is so much better ie easier to use than what gets bundled with your capture device ie Hauppauge Rocket and Roxio HD Capture Pro plus others as it's so fast to do your edits and you can get then spot on with what frame you want to start and finish on

XBox 360 Sniper Elite 3 First Level / Mission

Just playing the first level of Sniper Elite III on the XBox 360

Enjoying so far as love a more slow paced shooter than something like COD which isn't my cup of tea so if you loved Sniper Elite II it more of the same but now set in Africa

Captured using a Hauppage Rocket edited with VideoReDo then re-encoded with VidCoder as the file was over 3GB so shrunk down to 1GB which is easier for me to upload

Hauppauge Rocket External Hard Drive / SSD

If you want to use a SSD within a caddy with the Hauppauge Rocket a OCZ Vertex won't work but a Intel 330 works like a charm :)

Hauppauge HD PVR Rocket vs Roxio Game Capture HD Pro

Yes it's the fight of the century the Hauppauge HD PVR Rocket vs Roxio Game Capture HD Pro :)

Both capture devices were used with the same capture software GamerCap to make it a fair playing field as the Roxio software is crap

I choice forza 4 as it's one of the best looking games on the XBox 360 plus it was easer to capture an identical video and with the help of VideoReDo to edit i had two identical game captures which were then put together with Adobe Prem Pro

Well i've sat and watched the video a few times now and have to say it's an easy draw and the only difference i can see is the Roxio has a slightly richer colour balance where the Hauppauge is more natural

So what one would i buy ?

Well i have both, i first bought the Roxio and used for a few months but the included software will drive you potty "it's a dogs dinner" so gave up and got myself the Hauppauge Rocket which i've been using for the last few weeks which has the added benefits of capturing to a PC or as a standalone device to capture to a flash drive plus it has a mic input with is handy to add commentary to your gaming videos so in the end i would go for the Rocket but there is a "But" and that's where GamerCap Capture Software comes into the game as when used with the Roxio it brings the Roxio back into the game due to how easy it is to use plus it lets you record gamer commentary from a mic plugged into your PC which is then added to the video capture something the included Roxio doesn't do "shame on you Roxio"

So in the end i would buy the Hauppauge Rocket but if funds only allow for the Roxio just make sure you also buy GamerCap software to use with it and you will still be happy

PS I use GamerCap all the time now even with my Hauppauge Rocket as it's such a great bit of software
