Microsoft has revealed at Comic-Con 2013 that the Xbox One can record 5 mins of footage. What you did the past 5 mins in a game can be captured and all you have to do is say, “Kinect record”, and it will do the rest.

Compared to the PS4, which has 15 mins, it seems a bit low, but considering the Xbox One supports streaming, it doesn’t really matter. The PS4 meanwhile supports Ustream.

“The idea is you’re always recording,” Microsoft Studios creative director Ken Lobb said. “The last five minutes of any game you’re playing are always being stored on your hard drive.”

“Say you’re playing online and you just did the best thing ever – you can’t pause as you’re playing online, you can say ‘Xbox, record that’ and it’ll grab the last 30 seconds of gameplay for you to play around with later.”

Lobb revealed this during an interview with Gamespot. You can check out the video below.
