    Old Microsoft patent details gaming console with DVR functionality

    Can you imagine the original Xbox 360, with its 20GB hard drive, being used as a DVR?
    We really can't see it working, but in January of 2007 Microsoft was down with the idea.

    Patents discovered by Tom's Guide detail plans for a gaming console similar to the Xbox 360 with a "digital video recorder (DVR) application running alongside a television client component." In the alternate reality where Microsoft actually followed through with this patent, the console in question would be able to directly record content even when playing games or if "the gaming console is turned off."

    Of course today the Xbox 360 can stream content in a number of ways, but does not allow for direct recording to the hard drive. Now that the ceiling for storage has been raised on the platform we'd be on board with such functionality, but if this languishing patent is any indication Microsoft is fine with the current state of things.
