Why is that funny, choice is good. It's obvious a lot of people don't like the voice control. Problem is most people don't take the time to learn the voice commands.
Anyway, as mentioned above mine works very good and I'm very happy with it. Now if they would fix some of the other bugs and add some features like turning on directly into TV fullscreen mode so I don't always need to say "Xbox select", "resume TV".
Where is the choice to buy an xbone sans kinnect?
Does the OP look like a advertisement by/for Slickdeals disguised as an "organic post" or aggregated deal?
My place has too much noise so Kinect wouldn't work to well. I search a lot of Netflix which the Kinect can't do. Rather use this than my controller then turn it off when a show or movie starts then turn it back on when I want to search around more. 20% off a newly released 1st party accessory is a nice deal. reps to you.
Please rep your fellow Slickdealers for any helpful deals or responses
I hope they can polish this so that it is actually useful. I tried to redeem a code by saying
"Xbox, redeem code"......nothing. I thought something like that would be pretty straightforward.
it is "Xbox, use a code"
That gets me every time too.... The one thing that I can't stand...I received a couple free cars from Forza so far in the Xbox One life cycle...not ONE of them included the blasted QR code in the email! C'mon people!!! You have the feature, USE IT!
Something's not right. I can control mine from my kitchen about 30+ feet away. Every once in a while it gets the channel wrong. I may say "Xbox watch MSG" and it will tune to Lifetime or something but most of the time it works great. Try recalibrating if you haven't done so already. Also try other placement of the Kinect. I originally had mine under my TV but it has worked much better since moving it to the top of the TV.
Oddly enough, if Kinect ever changes to the wrong channel on me (usually I am trying to watch something I don't typically watch, and thus don't know the term it wants) it seems to 4/5 times default to "lifetime" Apparently I don't get ESPN Classic but I was trying to find it the other day and it kept sending me to lifetime and some shopping network!
it works 99/100 times for me though when moving between the NBC/ABC/ESPN/BTN's of the world.
It's great when it's time for my kids to go to bed and I say "Xbox turn off "and they start yelling "No, Xbox On, No, Cancel"
The Mrs. and I had that same battle the other day she was just trying to bug me and kept saying "Xbox turn off" from the other room so I just had to keep yelling "LOUD NOISES!!!"
