Xbox One Kinect Voice and Gesture commands

I tweeted images of a Kinect voice and gesture ‘cheat sheet’ earlier today, but I was able to get my hands on the high resolution PDF of them both as one file that will print out at a much higher quality.

Xbox One By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

  • Skrilla

    The Kinect is a waste of $150 make a Xbox One without it for $350

    • davide

      shut up,go play whit barbie,Kinect2 is amazing

      • Skrilla

        Kinect is garbage the first one cost $150 I heard Kinect 2.0 costs as much as the Xbone so might as well drop it make them both $250-

        • jalopygofarx

          Dear God, quit bitching. It’s not going to happen.

      • Guest

        not even 1 kinect game for the xbone which proves its pointless

        • davide

          First this you LIES becouse xboxone come to the launch whit 1 exclusive xboxone games about fight whit kinect,and also kinect sport rivals still coming and is amazing.
          and is also your comment is for disturb people,becouse this is major nelson blog and people stay here for talk about Happy Games topic and enjoy togheder,why dam you need come here write bad sad think about kinect 2,like you do.. why you need disturb who still enjoy here games whit your patetic polemic about kinect 2.

          the console is just come out at 22 novembre dam! is only 4 day ago… why u not give time to software house to put games in the market…

          • Dylan

            I had a hard time reading your statement, but I’ll bite.
            All the premier games in development that were exclusively for Kinect dropped it.

            Crimson Dragon is bad right now, imagine what it was when they decided Kinect wasn’t working for it.

            Ryse was supposed to be the AAA kinect game, and then they dropped the Kinect.
            CRYTEK is one of the most technologically savvy game developers out there, and even THEY couldn’t figure out how to make a good game with it.

            If you want to say Kinect is a fancy remote control, fine.
            If you like it, fine.
            But don’t say it is for games. It really isn’t. Not anything above the inconsequential throwaway mini-game here and there.

          • TonyLN

            Kinect is working fine for me in the games that support it: Sports, Zoo Tycoon & the UI.

            I think by including it in the box we will see a lot more titles having a “Better with Kinect” interface which is cool. My 5 kids like those kinds of games.

            Crimson Dragon is bad because of the developers, not Kinect… Ryse dropped Kinect support because they wanted more people to buy it, not because it wouldn’t work.

            If you don’t want to play games with the Kinect that’s fine, but don’t say it’s just a remote. It really isn’t. As time goes on you will see a lot more titles that utilize it an amazing ways that we can’t even imagine right now.

          • Dylan

            “As time goes on you will see a lot more titles that utilize it an amazing ways that we can’t even imagine right now.”

            -Kinect supporters in 2010 (including me), 2011 (me), 2012, and now 2013

            When will it actually happen?

          • Chris Breseman

            Give it time. The v1 came out 3 years ago on old tech (XBox 360) that was CLEARLY on the way out the door for new tech (XBox One). Developers generally don’t like to sink their money into old technology that isn’t going to be top dog for long. With the v2 coming on on XBox One, expect more “better with kinect” titles and more “kinect only” titles within a few years. I say a few years because it takes development time for games, and they generally are in the 2 year+ range. Further it’ll take that long for most developers to get a handle on the v2 abilities. It also takes someone creative to figure out a game that isn’t A) Fitness or B) on rails for kinect. Those creative minds don’t grow on trees.

            Want an example? The XBox One just came out November 22, 2013. Forza 5 was a day one release. You can not convince me that Turn 10 is using 10% of the power that the XBox One offers. That is because the developers don’t fully understand the power yet, and the development tech isn’t there yet. Given a few years we will see games push that 10% to 20% to 50% and eventually to the XBox One’s limits like we were seeing with Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and other new releases for XBox 360 at the end of the cycle.

          • Chris Breseman

            TonyLN,

            I think the vocal minority don’t like the Kinect. It has proven that it sells extremely well. There will ALWAYS be a small percentage that don’t like something. Unfortunately, that small percentage is amplified with shouting on the internet as the drown out the majority of people who like it or are satisfied with what they bought it for, and what it currently does.

            People want to be uneducated and yell the loudest. The educated know that A) the Kinect can be turned off, B) that most retailers sell a privacy kit for the Kinect v2 now. The kit allows you to place a small plastic mold around the camera that is easy to slip on/off and it comes with a TV mount to boot. And if $20 doesn’t suit your fancy, a dark color hand towel thrown over it will work for free. But if you use those privacy options, don’t be shocked when you have less voice commands and less Kinect optimization while those settings are active.

          • Riddick Snipes

            So u want me to wrap a hand towel over the kinect. Wow.

          • davide

            Fighter Within , Killest Instinct ,Zoo Tycon,Kinect sport rivals and moore all support kinect!

          • Riddick Snipes

            In 100 years time people will still b using controllers.

          • beardyman3218

            I use it for battlefield and thinks its great, issuing squad commands is simple and effective and headtracking is really good, turning your head whilst in a vehicle and having it feel like you are looking around the vehicle really adds to the immersiveness, for me anyway. Horses for courses come to mind.

          • Chris Breseman

            Look, for the most, part I agree with you. But can you PLEASE make your post at least a little coherent? I had to re-read many of your sentences two or three, sometimes four times to totally understand them.

            If you have trouble spelling something, type it into Google or your favorite search engine. That should bring back the proper spelling. Hell, I’m not too proud to admit I have to do it from time to time with some words. And are you wondering if you spelled something wrong? There is a red line underneath the word you spelled wrong in the text. Google, or Bing, or whatever search engine you use can and will be your best friend when typing.

            And don’t use the ‘English is a second language’ excuse. Because if you can speak it a little your versed well enough to look proper spellings up in Google, Bing, or Yahoo. Further if you need a translator to help you, Google Translate works wonders.

        • jalopygofarx

          I mean, I may be mistaken but… Just Dance 2014 is a kinect game.

    • Ian wakefield

      How about… no

    • http://www.arraystudios.com/ Dustin Dawes

      Except they can’t. Microsoft couldn’t figure out how to make a UI so instead they added voice commands. Removing those and the Xbox becomes even more impossible to navigate.

      • davide

        Your comment is really POOR and sad and you LIES.
        Who not hav user interface is the patetic PS4 that use in 2014 only “TEXT MENU”,XBOXONE hav the best IU graphics in console similar to windows 8,people can use PIN and graphics is really beautiful and nice,and about if not command voice can’t use,you lies,becouse there is also HAND Command,so kinect 2 is really amazing to use and enjoy voice or hand or body.
        And also Kinect2 is good for People becouse help Healt status and not to be FAT,becouse who use kinect move body,and who use body make little gymnastique,better than stay always sit down whit only controller on hand and never move.
        Also kinect2 is good,becouse give the possibility at people whit handicap (for example who can’t use finger or little handicap like this) to enjoy game by kinect2,that whit controller can’t.

        • paul rolland

          lol what?

          • davide

            prrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

        • billy middleton

          sorry but making offensive remarks about people of a larger build cannot be tolerated.

      • paul rolland

        Remember the slide UI when everything was easy to find and access, I miss that

        • Dylan

          I miss the blades so much. It was incredibly easy to read and fast.
          Or I just have rose tinted glasses.

          • paul rolland

            Nope it was awesome. it was really fast and super easy, Its like they want to show windows 8 wasn’t rubbish by needlessly adding it to everything.

          • xPutNameHerex

            Less rose tinted glasses, more “there’s just a lot more stuff the console does” nowadays. The blades were certainly easy to read and fast, but there was a lot less content you had to go through anyway (even just pure gaming content). They’d be ridiculously convoluted if you tried putting all the content of the current Xbox 360 into the former blades.

    • davide

      you is waste! and u expensive than kinect2! hahaha
      Fighter Within , Killest Instinct ,Zoo Tycon,Kinect sport rivals and moore all support kinect! shut up! ignorance videogames u!

      • tigertomspill

        you forgot battlefield 4 and head tracking and voice commands

        • Skrilla

          Rather have Battlefield 4 in 1080p instead of that trash

          • Dylan

            It is in 900p upscaled to 1080. But yeah, I agree.

  • Allan

    I need one of those in Portuguese.

    • Lucas Sanches Cestari

      hey, the voice commands works in portuguese too?

      • Allan

        Yep

    • beardyman3218

      If you say “xbox, help” it should give you a list of voice commands in your chosen language.

  • Brian Cooperider

    Thanks ! my wife will appreciate this alot

  • SecondOne

    What about the people that don’t know where to look. This should have been included in the box.

    • TonyLN

      Or published to the main login screen so everyone sees it when they turn the XB1 on.

    • TonyLN

      Should have read before I commented the first time. This stuff is all available by saying Xbox Help; while it might be nice to have a print out I think most people would toss it, I know I would.

      • Pete

        True enough. I took out the wad of papers in the box, rooted through for anything with a code on then put all the rest back. Didn’t read any of it. Pretty much my standard box opening procedure.

  • billy middleton

    it still cannot understand the Scottish accent

  • billy middleton

    the only thing is with Kinect is there are very little games for it and it has no use on a gaming console.
    the other thing is instead of 2 clicks to go to the game add-ons it now takes several clicks.
    but my biggest gripe is we have NO ABILITY to manage the storage on the console, we don’t know how much space is left, we don’t know where to go.
    sorry but the con’s on the xbox one are now outnumbering the pro’s.
    why cant we use our avatars more and please for the love of god bring back our ability to manage the system we own.
    we don’t want Microsoft to manage our storage space, we want to do it ourselves

    • billy middleton

      @Kevin Corcoran

      I’m a network engineer, to manage our own local storage is needed,
      Microsoft said the saves are stored in the system cache, if that were tre then the cache would be wiped each time the console is unplugged from the mains power supply.
      they also said that cloud saving is mandatory, well sorry to burst the bubble under the uk data protection act and the digital privacy act Microsoft have to give the uk people ability to op-out of several xbox services.
      storage management is a requirement of all devices, no management means anti-trust legislation laws being broken on a retail level which can be bad for business.
      don’t say “but Microsoft is an American company” well for services to be catered for different countries Microsoft has to have a physical presence in each country, when they do that then they do have to abide by that nations laws regardless of where there head office is.

      • Roberto Merino

        But.. they need it to be in the cloud so the NSA can see them without breaking your privacy any further collecting all the data directly from the hard drive.

        • billy middleton

          cloud sharing still falls under uk data protection laws,
          cloud is saved in the nations own servers to help load information faster than loading it from a different country.
          its easier to load information from a uk server than a server in the usa due to bandwidth and loading times.
          I’ve been in games which are hosted in Australia and the ping times are massive compared to pings to the usa.
          cloud storage has many many flaws for gaming.
          1)- cloud goes down no more saves
          2)- data corruption increases massively
          3)- server hardware changes means loss of data.
          that’s just the tip of the iceberg

          • beardyman3218

            Your latest played game saves are stored locally, so if you decide to play offline you can, when you reconnect to live your save is copied to the cloud. Server hardware changes dont affect the data stored, a company like microsoft knows that if a server is getting a hardware or software update they will copy its data to another server for the time being as a backup. data corruption is less likely as if the cloud save fails it grabs the locally saved file and if the local file corrupts you connect to live and choose to download your cloud save. whilst i agree it would be nice to manage our locally saved games that is the only thing i agree with in your comment. maybe a future update will bring this as quite a few people have asked for it.

          • billy middleton

            so I take it you don’t keep up on tech news, Microsoft are suffering from cloud server failings, they lost data belonging to several companies.
            they paid out more in compensation than the cost of the hardware.
            hardware upgrades failing every other day.
            Microsoft was one of the biggest companies that skimped on decent hardware for there servers.
            aside from that we still want the ability to self manage our own storage, I hate cloud saving so much I spend time looking for the legit valid information about companies failings with cloud storage.
            did you know that every company that used cloud storage paid out out billions of £/$ a year in compensation over lost and corrupt data.
            sony does not use cloud, Nintendo does not use cloud even a majority of game developers don’t use cloud as its not designed for gaming.

          • beardyman3218

            And yet microsofts cloud service has been voted number 1 so they are doing something right. How is cloud technology not designed for gaming? Technology can be used for anything provided it is refined for its specific use. Sony does use cloud tech and their gaikai service is a cloud service as is their movie rentals and music streaming, you do realise cloud is a word used for connecting to data that is stored remotely and can be used for anything you want it to be used for.

    • tigertomspill

      next update they said this will be back with external storage, but it will be hard to fill the space with games before the update takes place….

  • fastharryDOTcom

    how about we fix the HDMI pass through so watching TV is not a major issue for non gamers who just wish to watch TV…

    • billy middleton

      take pity on the people in the PAL regions.
      the HDMI pass through downgrades the screen to 50hrz and drops the resolution to the smallest hd resolution.
      it also has compatibility issues with sky+ hd boxes and some virgin media boxes.
      the worst case is the Freeview boxes, all of these devices are either downsized or outright incompatible with the hdmi pass-through

      • Skrilla

        Microsoft didn’t have any beta testers from the future in Europe ?

      • PaperWorkDan

        You have that the wrong way round. It’s the UK tv boxes outputting at 50Hz and the Xbox is putting out 60Hz causing dropped frames etc.

        • xbox_gamer

          U have it wrong. Thats your electrical that 50 Hz.But thats not a refresh rate which on tvs can be 60hz to 120.240,600. thats how fast its refreshing the game,pixels,rgb etc.etc

          • PaperWorkDan

            I really don’t. Don’t correct people if you’re not willing to do the most basic of reading. Here’s an excerpt from one of the dozens of articles on the topic: “The root of the problem lies with refresh rates. Many UK TV sets and set top boxes output in 50Hz, including Sky, Virgin and Freeview boxes. In the US however, the standard is 60Hz. With a difference in frames being sent between the two machines, the Xbox is compensating by doubling up every sixth frame, leading to the stuttering effect.”. I’m pretty sure no-one even knows what you mean by “Your electrical” either.

          • xbox_gamer

            Well if the millions of people that served in the service in europe knows this is as facts. its current is 50hz cycle. so what. Not a problem with 360 or any other 60 hz product. either use a transformer like every one did who ever brought electronics to europe from the states. Funny millions of wiis wuiis 360s xbox1 and ps3 and 4 in Europe but now its the electrical grid lol. what a dummy

      • beardyman3218

        It doesnt drop any resolution if your box is capable of 1080p it displays in 1080p, if your box is 720p it upscales to 1080p. My tv is still showing 60hz when i am using this feature even though my box is 50hz so i am not loosing any frames.

  • Nathanzz

    Voice commands are fine, but many of us won’t be able to use Kinect for gestures or motion until there’s an extension cable available. Any word on whether that’s coming down the line?

  • Jorge Garza

    Can you do the same for other languages? Like Spanish, for example.

  • billy middleton

    Kinect v2 has little or zero games because Kinect v1 has hardly any games and Kinect v2 is the same.

    Kinect as a whole has no actual use on a gaming console, on a desktop pc it can be used for work and for classrooms but not in an actual home enviroment.

    most of the bedrooms where the xbox is actually used do not have enough space for kinect to work.

    the first kinect required a minimum of 6 feet distance and a 45degree of visible space, my bedroom is 10 feet wide and 10 feet long, kinect is usless in my room because when i put in my furniture i have enough space to get up and walk out my room.

    kinect v2 they said required less area coverage to work, sorry but i still cant use it as i now have it back in the box still with the protective covering on it.

    microsoft should have given people the option of kinect and that way people would have save at least £150.

    i looked at all the games for kinect v1 and to be honest ….. none of them were even worth looking at as they were all aimed at kids or health fanatics.

    my kinect v1 i modded and hacked to turn it into a working security camera / motion detector for my house and it really is nifty.

    i’m already looking at using the kinect v2 as a night vision security motion camera because … to be honest .. thats all its good for, protecting back yards from invaders.

    • Riddick Snipes

      I can think of another use…

    • Skrilla

      Agreed the 1st Kinect cost £130 so drop it and make the Xbox One for £299

    • tigertomspill

      Ps4 might be a better choice if you going to just play games and use it in your bedroom, but at least you can still use voice commands and auto sign in…

  • Caught_an_FPS

    Bring back ” ‘Friend’ is Online” notifications and do differentiate between “game invite” and “party invite” please, PLEASE.

    • https://live.xbox.com/MyXbox/Profile?gamertag=DarkGin87 Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

      Yes!!!!! also they should maybe change the notification to say xbo360 or xbox one

  • KillerRamen

    Speaking of Kinect, when will I be able to buy an Xbox One without one?

    • Does Not Equal

      You won’t. Stop beating that poor, dead horse.

      • KillerRamen

        If that’s the case, then I guess I’ll never buy an Xbox One… Or at least not until I can find one at a flea market for $20.

        • Roberto Merino

          So… it seems the poor was not that… horse.

    • tigertomspill

      dont expect it to happen it part of the machine it would be like a wii with out the sensor bar…

      • KillerRamen

        It’s a stupid dance camera. Nothing would be lost without it being there and the thing is horribly lacking in dance games.

  • VisageOfAnAngel

    Wow, this “Black Friday Sale” is rubbish.

    I have the Xbox One and Ps4 but someone who is a gamer…this is a true gamers console. http://www gamespot com/articles/steam-machine-prototype-from-ibuypower-revealed-runs-at-1080p-and-60fps/1100-6416393/

    • MrRadiolips

      Vote me down all you want you MS pleebs.

      • https://live.xbox.com/MyXbox/Profile?gamertag=DarkGin87 Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

        That sounds more like like a fanboy and not a “true gamer”

        • MrRadiolips

          No it really doesnt.

          • https://live.xbox.com/MyXbox/Profile?gamertag=DarkGin87 Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

            Yes it does because a “true gamer” wouldn’t lower stoop low to call people “MS pleebs” are true gamer doesn’t troll posting comments after comments that he doesn’t agree with

    • beardyman3218

      What is a “true” gamer? Surely your either a gamer or your not.

      • MrRadiolips

        A gamer is who wants the best experience of how they play. Quality over favorites. I see so many of the people on here only judging by the name of what they own. What if you own them all and waiting for the next best thing? Its a ladder of sorts not just choosing your favorite industry but a choice of wanting a real generation standard. People like me are what pushes the consoles to be “bigger”! I will always judge. A TRUE GAMER!

        • beardyman3218

          So a “true” gamer is being big headed, got it, thanks.

          • MrRadiolips

            No big headed is making excuses for medicore standards. Didnt you want more from this generation? Im not the only one who is dissapointed. Just because i choose a higher quality system doesnt mean that im “big headed” (your words)

          • dean0saure

            A true gamer is someone who enjoys playing games, whatever system, whatever the graphics, but because he/she likes the game/challenge/experience. I play ADOM once in a while. Certainly not because of the graphics, but because it`s a challenge, it`s different and I like it.

          • MrRadiolips

            Beardyman edited . Afraid?!

        • beardyman3218

          The steam machines do look good, i just hope the price is. i am going to stay with my xbox one, for now anyway. I want to see more about these steam machines before i make a decision, the only problem i have is if they creat different specs for different machines, i find that to make multiplayer un-balanced.

          • MrRadiolips

            Read up on AMD mantle and ythen make a choice. Also SteamOS openGL

        • evilfangs .

          By that logic unless you don’t own a gaming PC you aren’t a true gamer. A gamer is someone who likes to play any device that he can play video games on. It doesn’t matter if the console is a powerful machine that can out put 1080p 60fps. It’s about the experience that the games offers by the story and gameplay and not the stupid specs of 1080p 60fps.

          • MrRadiolips

            You are obviously not understanding. Ok..if a better gaming console not any better than an X1 were to come out i would say X1 is a better experience, but now the “game” has changed with newer options as opposed to (just gaming in general) there are better options for living room gaming. Its not being a fanboy or any other categories that you try to put each other in, its just a matter of preferences to gaming experience in general.

          • MrRadiolips

            Im 36. Been playing games since i was 5. I believe in evolution. Your logic is nonsense. Go back to playing atari.

          • jimbonics

            When I had an Atari, I was a True Gamer. When I had a NES, Genesis, N64, Saturn, x86, Dreamcast, Xbox, Xbox360, I was a true gamer.

    1. I got an email from AT&T because I exceeded my bandwidth cap of 150gb for the month because of my xbox one…lol
    Battlefield 4 – 33GB

    Dead Rising 3 – 19GB
    Forza Motorsport 5 – 31GB
    Madden NFL 25 – 12GB
    NBA 2K14 – 43GB

    2. Why do I have to sign out of windows 8.1 with my normal account to login into smartglass with my xbox profile account? That should be fixed. I shouldn’t need 2 pc login accounts to use smartglass..

    3. I sit in a gaming chair and the kinect has a hard time tracking my head because of the high back of the chair. Any suggestions other than ditch the chair?

    • IN_YO_FACE_86

      AT&T sucks anyway one of the reasons why I left them oh and it’s like having Flintstones connection.

    • Michael Burden

      For the chair thing, you might try draping something over the top to add some contrast, possibly something lighter colored. Some kind of cover to give more contrast and make it easier distinguish your head. Still pretty strange as mine picks up in near darkness with dark wood grain walls, but I haven’t tried any games with it that use head tracking yet either.

  • OldSocialist

    Mm. I make a helpful post advising people how to register their consoles and praising the process, and it’s deleted. Plain offensive, that.

    Larry (AKA: Major Nelson),
    Where are the Kinect 2.0 ext cables ? I cant use my New Xbox one Kinect till I get at least a 20′ ext cable ? These were out for the 360 right away when the Kinect 1.0 came out.

    Here I sit with a cool new Kinect and I can’t even use it because the cord is too short….

    Please help or at least give an idea when they will be available…Thanks !

    • billy middleton

      the xbox one now works without Kinect being plugged in, so you can still use your xbox one

      • DavidinCT

        Did MS acutally think that 9′ would be long enough for everyone ? Really ?

        Mine sits in the box till I can get a cable long enough to use it…. Come on give us something soon for this issue !

        • Nathanzz

          My guess is that they made the cable as long as the USB 3.0 connection would allow and that they’re having issues with latency when using active repeaters to extend them. Would be nice to hear some confirmation that Kinect won’t be compatible, or that they are working with partners to certify the extensions.

        • evilfangs .

          Dam. I haven’t even unwrapped the wire on my Kinect. It still has that little plastic thing that ties the wires together.

  • Maritox

    gimme kinect offers

    • billy middleton

      I’d want a connector so I can plug it into my pc.
      I know for a hard fact Kinect v2 does work with a pc

      • Skrilla

        I wish it did work for PC so I could sell my Kinect 2.0 to some hacker / nerd

    • Nick Peck

      Why do people expect some huge discounts on a just released product? Does anyone around here (or the “internet”) have any clue how real life works? Look around at some of the black Friday deals the retailers are having, they are giving $10 off of brand new games already, that’s not bad and about the best you will get on new stuff.

      • Maritox

        easy boy i thought i was on the black friday sale :)

    I recently tried out some of the programs included in Xbox Fitness on a Xbox One, which with the feedback from the Kinect 2.0 are great. But because they are streamed, unless you have a fast broadband connection they will stop partway through a workout and you will lose your progress.

    I paid for one of the full versions thinking I would get a digital download like a game and would avoid this problem, but it is also streamed.

    So I am not getting full use of the product I paid for.

    I suggest either Microsoft provides the paid for Fitness applications as digital downloads or allows downloading of the streamed content before playback.

    @Major we need the following ASAP:
    – List of recently played gamertag
    – Ability to send voice message with a “xbox send voice message to” option
    – Easier access to report bad player (the recently played gamer would definitely help)
    – Auto voice chat with party
    – Ability to set a preferred language for match making (i don’t know if it use the system language, but since the french voice command are long and unatural, i prefer my console in english). And or the ability for the kinect to understand 2 languages if that possible (I saw that request many time on forum from foreigner, espacially those that have not been “localised” yet).
    – Chat settings (turn on/off kinect chat without voiding kinect feature so we stop hearing xbox command while playing game online). Headset option and increased volume would be a welcome addition too.

    • evilfangs .

      Turn on friend notifications too. I feel like I’m the only one playing Xbox 360 / X1 at the moment because I never know when someone comes online. Even a stupid notification makes me feels like I’m connected to people.

  • Skrilla

    Why no auto log in on Xbox One without the nsa kinect?

    • davide

      Becouse when the kinect see you,and see all u write whitout sense,him prefer to turn other side.

  • Skrilla

    The reason why COD Ghosts isn’t in 1080p is because of that NSA Kinect using 10% of the power its a waste

    • beardyman3218

      I dont think thats the reason cod is 720p, it doesnt exactly look 1080p on ps4 either sounds like an excuse by infinity ward for a rushed port.

  • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

    can anyone tell me if i rent a game and install it, and then decide to buy the digital version, will I have to download the whole thing or is it intelligent enough to just download the license or whatever it need ?

  • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

    where is google fiber when you need it ?

  • CoinFiend

    Agree. As far as I can tell “Xbox On” does not work. Period. I’ve tried at least 50 times and the xbox has never responded – and yes the Xbox’s power setting is set to “Instant on”. For the record, I’m from Australia and do not have a strong accent. It also does not work for any of my friends. FIX THIS PLEASE.

      it works with my father, even when his teeth are on the table

    Dear Microsoft

    Before I start my little rant, let me assure you I understand my equipment & I know how to set it all up properly so with that said……

    How the hell did you manage to overlook the 50hz TV issue in UK/Europe ? Seriously guys, how ? Was it the same group of people who missed the fact that Xbox One would be mockingly renamed Xbone ? Regardless, fire these idiots immediately.

    How did you manage to overlook the fact that most modern smart TVs use Game Modes to reduce input lag which if enabled & you are trying to watch your TV via Xbox One, makes the image look rubbish because that channel is set up to run a games console to its full effect & not my TV signal to its maximum HD glory ???

    Why doesn’t the Kinect voice command work properly & why is voice recognition better on my Android smartphone than my console ? Having to use a the proper cadence to talk to Kinect is also pretty inexcusable. .

    If I mute Kinect I would like it to automatically unmute when I use Skype then once I finish my call go back into a muted state with notifications showing its done these things.

    Lastly I do actually like this machine & I can see its potential but somebody has dropped the ball royally on the major features you’ve touted the One as having which separate it from the ‘others’ in teh console world.

    Fix ASAP.

    What the f… are you trying to say? Speak some coherent English for Christ sake! If you need to, f…ing type in your native tongue. That way I can use Google Translate to figure out what you’re trying to f…ing say.

    • davide

      I don’t mind you,if you can’t read or understand,not read… so easy… i dont mind,is your problem.

  • snakie

    is there any news regarding the games with gold for december?

    • ruud013

      Halo 5 i heard ;)

  • beardyman3218

    Does anybody know if there will be demos for games on xbox one, havent seen any yet but thats due to their being few games available but are there going to be demos in the future?

    • ruud013

      i hope they come soon,
      i can’t wait

  • beardyman3218

    You have to have your xbox in low powerstate mode for xbox on to work, if you have then i dont know why it isnt working.

  • Mark George

    Xbox one sucks! Mine worked on delivery and the Kinect died within 48 hrs. MS support can’t be bothered to sort the issue or MS is employing people devoid of any customer service skills. I can’t get it replaced. I’ve tried to get the retailer to replace but they can’t as there are no units available and when asked for a refund they have become very obstructive and are doing there best to prevent any solution. It a disgraceful joke and I am disgusted, having just spent close to £1,000 on the console, peripherals and all the launch titles.
    I wish I’d not bought it at all as Microsoft obviously don’t care one jot about loyal fans or brand loyalty. Next gen my backside, my is now only fit to use as a door stop. Utterly disgraceful. Trust me I am sharing my experience with both the faults and MS support with all my friends and colleagues and as I am a Senior Manager with ASDA, part of Walmart, I have a large audience to share my negative experience with. My advice is to avoid this lemon of console. Made on the cheap in China and the lack of quality and support speak for themselves.

  • MichiganJack

    Thanks Larry!

    Any chance that this information could be packed in with the console?

  • andrew easter

    Does xbox one kinect work with children? My 7 year old and 4 year old have spent 2 days shouting xbox xbox xbox at the TV and nothing is happening. yet I say xbox and it instantly works.

    • ruud013

      it works with my children
      they are 11 and 13 years old

      but they have a very loud voice
      sometimes i get a headache from them

      grtz. from the Netherlands ;)

    • arrow2010

      Little kids are notorious for poor enunciation. I suspect that Siri doesn’t work any better with kids.

  • ruud013

    Mister nelson,
    when can we expect the xbone smartglass in europe for android ?
    tnx in advance ;)

  • erfy

    The Kinect with Xbox Fitness does not perform as well as I first thought. Using the Pulse detection function it cannot find my heartbeat when it’s thumping. Further it doesn’t detect any movement from me in some exercises (no score) and loses sight of me when I move to the floor for others (tried repositioning it). And often it does not even see it is me standing there when I turn on the Xbone.

  • Sergio Esquivel

    my kinect sensor has died after 5 hours of use… thanks microsoft for destroy my happy day.
