I doubt I’m the only UK gamer that thought Amazon’s Black Friday offering was a little disappointing. Whilst those in the US could save almost 50% on a range of gaming headsets, nothing came close on Amazon’s UK site.
Thankfully, it looks as though Cyber Monday will have much more to offer.
AVerMedia Game Capture HD: now under £100
The first deal to pop up offers a saving of £40 on the AVerMedia Game Capture HD. This is a High Definition Capture Card that can be used to record gameplay on a PS3, XBOX or Ninendo Wii.
I personally own an AVerMedia and don’t have a bad word to say about it. Personally, I went for this one over other capture cards as it has built in storage, meaning I don’t need to connect my PS3 to a laptop in order to record. This was a particularly important feature because my PS3 and computer sit at opposite ends of the house.
For more detail on the AVerMedia, check out this video review by JSHD. If you just want to get an idea of the quality, check out the clip below.
Once I’m done recording I transfer my clips to PC and then render in Sony Vegas 9. My AVerMedia & Sony Vegas render settings are available here.
