    I t hink most voice rec software is heavy biased/tailored [not for those outside the US]. Even downloading the 'Australian' voice libs(closest to NZ) for Google Now, yields not the best results.

    I can only imagine NZ Siri/etc users who can't set these things. But yeah, I've noticed the same for Kinect and now PS4 stuff.

    It does offend people, but seeing as I'm from NY it doesn't really bother me.

    I don't find anything wrong with Kinect. Either you use it or you don't. It's become part of my Xbox One experience and i'd rather have it than not have it. The voice commands are awesome.

    That's fine. I prefer the 360 model. If you want it, you buy it.

    Is that one better (in terms of voice)? I thought the Kinect 2 was improved on that?

    Does everything you tell ti to do have to begin with "XBOX" or can you just tell it to do something?

    "Map"
    as opposed to
    "Xbox Map"

    We keep hearing that Ghost, but where are the damn games? They don't exist.

    95% of the games made for Kinect 1 and 2 so far have been nothing even close to targeting 'core gaming'.

    Not really if you day "xbox select" evetything that can be said as a voice command turns green then if you dont give a command after a while or say "xbox stop listening" it goes back to normal. So if you wanted to navigate to the xbox store and purchase a game it would be "xbox select" "games" then whatever you want after that or just keep on browsing or whatever as far as I remember have been on in a few days but you aren't limited to what is on screen, saying "xbox select" just seems to be the command to let xbox know you want to usr voice commands without always prefixing everything with "xbox". It really is quite easy to use. I quite like the kinect the telling it what to do is easy enough the "xbox on" and off features are handy and whilst the kinect might not be the greatest thing to happen to gaming it definitely works and tbh I use it quite a bit when I play xbox.

    Kinect is a joke...the gimmick was done by the Wii successfully and now it's over. Why the hell would I want to play a game constantly moving, I play video games to sit down and relax. If anything they should have gone with VR as well, you know ACTUALLY feeling like you're in the game, instead of a cheap and annoying way of doing it.

    Virtual Reality still requires a camera to my knowledge (SONYS implementaiton at least does).

    Yeah, Sony's does, but VR itself doesn't require it. You could still use a regular controller, but seems like it would cut out a lot of the immersion.

    Yeah but they also use it to actually track the head don't they? I thought thats what the little lights on the side were for so they could track if you turn left or right.

    Edit: Here...

    The helmet uses built-in accelerometers and gyroscopes in conjunction with the PlayStation Camera for high fidelity head-tracking

    I believe currently you do but from that conference it was implied they were going to reduce the amount of movements you'd need to do such as walking and what not, but you do have a good point because as far as swinging and attack goes you have to move. At least it'll feel more realistic though, on the kniect you still see your character move and walk around as oppose to VR you're the character and see it from his perspective.

    I honestly can't believe that he would bash kinect. He was praising kinect 1 to the heavens when it actually didn't work well. Now he's $#@! talking. I honestly don't get this man at all. MS must have turned down one of his new games or pissed in his morning coffee.
    When Kinect 1 was being released, he worked for Microsoft. Now? He doesn't work for Microsoft. And I don't see how he was bashing the Kinect with the XONE.

    Sonys Project morpheus aswell as the current implementation or Oculus Rift requires a camera for head tracking. VR itself doesnt require a camera tho , but then you lose head tracking.

    It is a unneeded expense Microsoft forces on you . It is a extra hundred bucks that sucks up resources doesn't works as well as they said it will. They should have junked it last gen but as normal Microsoft like to try and force people to buy their bad ideas. Sort of like how they are trying to force people in to buying windows 8 that no one wants. Dont want or need a xbox one and that is mostly because of the Kenict. I make sure my daughters is unplugged when not in use because I swear the $#@!ing things follows me in the living room even when the 360 is turned off.
