    No, you need a video capturing device, that supports Thunderbolt.

    More likely USB 3.0?

    As far as I'm aware, there's no way to do it without introducing a good amount of input lag.

    I'd love to be proven wrong, but nobody has ever posted test results with the 2011/2012 27" iMacs with Thunderbolt.

    I was one of those people who connected their 360/PS3 to their 2009 27" iMac which had mini Displayport instead of Thunderbolt, - and it worked pretty well with the Atlona box I had hooked up since it was designed for low-latency gaming etc.

    Still waiting on something for the 2011/2012 iMacs with Thunderbolt, but I gave up holding my breath a long time ago.
