Want to relive that moment when you collected the last thingamajig out of all those whatzits and got a sweet 20 points added to your Gamerscore? Then the Xbox One has you covered.

Microsoft’s new console will reportedly automatically record the moment you unlock an Achievement and store it in an internal DVR. You can then watch or share your moments of victory at your leisure. This is according to an interview done by YouTube user ChampChong with Xbox Australia executive Adam Pollington, originally spotted by Kotaku. You can watch the interview below.

We’ve contacted Microsoft for clarification on this feature. A representative told GamesBeat that it’ll be up to developers to cue the console to automatically record specific moments of a game.

Achievements have been a popular feature since they debuted with the Xbox 360 in 2005. They reward players with points for completing specific tasks in games, like killing so many enemies or beating the hardest difficulty.

The Xbox One launches on Nov. 22.
