Video game streaming and capture junkies should take note of a new deal at Best Buy on Wednesday that discounts one of the more popular capture devices for console and PC users.

The Elgato Game Capture HD is on sale for $129.99 as part of Best Buy's Deal of the Day which is $50 off the device's regular price.

By comparison, the capture device is currently on sale for $154.99 at Amazon but the online retailer is known for matching Best Buy's Deal of the Days. Update: Amazon has indeed matched the $129.99 price.

The capture device features an HDMI pass through that can be hooked up to the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC to record gameplay at up to 1080p. Gameplay can be streamed live to Twitch or used to record and edit videos to be shared on YouTube or other services.

Note that neither the PS4 or PS3 support recording gameplay via HDMI. There are many work-arounds however that can be found with a simple internet search. Additionally, Sony has stated that they are looking at enabling the recording of gameplay in a future system update for the PS4.

The Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U and PC all support gameplay over HDMI.
