Microsoft has confirmed that their upcoming Xbox One will allow users to record the last five minutes of gameplay directly to the console's hard drive.

The recording system, known as Project Upload, will allow users to grab footage both on or offline and store it locally. Ken Lobb of Microsoft Studios was showing off the feature while demoing the new Xbox One exclusive Killer Instinct this past weekend during Comic-Con.

"The last five minutes of any game you're playing is always being stored locally on your hard drive," Lobb said. Through the voice recognition software bundled with the Kinect, you can tell your Xbox to record your gameplay, or, if it slips your mind, you can access the automatically saved last five minutes, and edit it as you see fit.

What do you think? Is this a feature you see getting a ton of usage post-release? Let us know.
