Next-gen means more than just flashier graphics and better performance. It also means new and innovative features that fall in line with what's popular in gaming culture. Right now, there's nothing bigger than videogame spectating.

What started as a DIY phenomenon is now a worldwide spectacle, where millions of viewers spend time broadcasting, watching, and commenting on live and recorded video game action. To catch up with that trend, the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 both have game DVR functionality built right into their framework, making it easier for gamers to participate.

In this latest episode of Ask The Experts, Jeff and Peter compare each platform's streaming and sharing abilities while discussing what the future might bring as well.

Ask The Experts returns on Monday, so make sure to check back for a brand-new episode!
