Ok if I could get my XBOX to do that ... I would buy Kinect!

A1 the new Kinect allows users to control the XBOX video playback with voice commands.

What I dont understand is why it took Microsoft so long to develop a voice activated controls for the system. Its not like this technology is new, its ancient. And yes, I have proof!!!

Any Automated Telephone service, The Clapper, Clap on Clap Off, Rainbow 6 Vegas had voice support to tell your AI Allies where to go and what to do, same thing with that RTS Tom Clancy game.

So please, why the 4 year development time? And why are we paying 150 dollars for outdated tech?

*coughs* Somehow, I think I just ruined Microsoft's joy about releasing this thing. Also, Project Natel sounded better!!!

Does it still have gesture control like it did in it's promo movies? I liked the idea of that. Saying "X-box this x-box that" sounds kind of irritating to me. I would rather push a button.

I'd love to walk in while someone's half way through watching a film and say "Xbox, off"

So the wife doesn't even need to find the remote before changing the channel during Bathurst?

All is doomed.
