Elgato’s Game Capture HD60 Pro To be Showcased for First Time at TwitchCon

Elgato’s latest game capture hardware, the Game Capture HD 60 Pro, will make its debut at TwitchCon this weekend. Unlike Elgato’s other capture devices, the HD60 Pro will be an actual PC card, so it is exclusive to PCs and can’t be used with consoles. Although the press release does mention that you can stream “Xbox, Playstation, and Wii U” gameplay with it, so the message is a bit confusing. I’m sure the PC master race will figure it out.

The HD60 Pro is now available for $199.95, and will offer some of the lowest latency for a capture device thanks to its PCIe interface. You can order yours today from Amazon, and if you do it quick enough you could even get it by tomorrow! You can also check out more of the technical details below.
