Record Your Gaming
If you've done something particularly badass during a game and want to share it with your friends, or the internet at large, press the Xbox button on the controller and press X. That'll capture the last 30 seconds of gameplay.
If you want to record the entirety of your gameplay: press the Xbox button, then the menu button and select "Start Recording".
Up Your Controller Game
