    Oh, you mean like this?

    I think this a funny commercial, but I'm not sure if its more negative or positive.. cos I think it shows a problem with the Kinect :D But as said, if someone wants to do that, they can pretty much do it without Kinect too.

    I'd want to show this to my fiancee, but I'm not sure if it's a good idea to give her bad ideas lol, especially when she owns about 40% of my Xbox One.. :P I insisted to own at least a slight majority! :D

    EDIT: This isn't the full length one or the one I saw.. There's another one where in the end the boyfriend is trying to say something and the chick says, as if issueing a kinect-command "Boyfriend, go to store" and the boyfriend walks out :P

    Seems that this version is a bit different in other ways too:

    I am getting an Xbox One because I'm due for an upgrade (Xbox 360 Arcade 2008). I also mainly use Xbox services like Music and Video, together with other tv services like hulu. Games support on Xbox One would be obviously greater than 360's, so now I'm just casually waiting for KH3, Halo 5 and maybe other Kinect games as well like that Xbox Fitness or DC4.

    There HAS to be a Kingdom Hearts remix on Xbox One/PS4. They scattered that story over so many platforms I could never keep up, so I never bothered to. I stopped after getting a little into the second game, after beating the first and Chain of Memories. Now, I'd have to hop onto PS3 and mobile and 3DS and IDK what else to catch up.

    I just sold my 360 and Blu-Ray player on eBay, so I'm in.

    I was sold on it in May when they did the unveiling. To be honest with you. I'm all for the all in one experience. I want my better half to be able to use it without fail, she can say a few things and it's good to go for her. I am only getting one game at launch. I am sure many more will be coming down the pipe...I just don't know. I have to wait for reviews. Maybe it's time to get back into sports games, Forza, Madden, and NBA 2K14...that might work...BF4 for sure...maybe I'll add the other three.

    At any rate most reviews popping up seem very positive for the X1 so far in terms of games. I also thought I read where Skydrive will be used to stream and such to X1...unless I read it incorrectly...I have 45gigs doing nothing except some work documents and Windows Phone pics...maybe it's time to load it up with movies...

    Lol I'm with you. I started with KH and KH2 on PS2, then they started distributing 'side stories' on other platforms like GBA and PSP, then suddenly 3DS. It's not a pleasant experience to follow the story, mainly because you have to have everything to play the game and everyone's not rich.

    I pre ordered and of course been keeping abreast of the issues and statements from the likes of devs from COD etc. I got back from Vegas yesterday and 2 days ago went to the Fashion Show Mall to get a few accessories for my SP2 that I cant yet get in the UK. They had 2 XBOX Ones on demo and i played Forza for 15 or so minutes. I have to say that the jump from the last gen consoles to this is not as much as i thought it would be and i felt a bit disappointed. I have cancelled my pre order and will wait until the devs get to grips with the hardware and/or MS release an update to the hardware as they are 100% sure to do. XBOX One FTW!!! i will watch from the sidelines before leaping in.

    i gotta be honest im so deep into the microsoft ecosystem what with windows 8, surface, xbox music, xbox video (which by the way i cant wait to have on my phone), windows phone, xbox gaming, i just dont see for the type of person i am how a playstation would fit better with my entertainment lifestyle. I mean sure Ps4 is a bit more powerful, but then so was the ps3 compared to the 360 and my ps3 collects dust. Another thing to consider if your a gamer and care about these things, you keep your gamerscore. Meaning if you put in the work to get achievements you dont lose them since they are tied to your gamertag. i also like the freedom of navigation on my entertainment console, whether it be voice controller smartglass or gestures. If im sipping on a coffee or eating something greasy rather than dirty my controller, i can just talk to it or move my hand. or if im watching something on my surface just send it to the xbox. I also love the tiles, which i think people just dont give a shot. Going on to console core features, snap mode, skype, IE, fast app switching, the guide, gaming, music, movies, social aspect, partying which ps3 stupidly left out... these are all the making of a great console. +more exclusive games with more new games on xb one. idk personally i dont know how a slightly better gpu on a ps4 can compensate for all the things it cant do. not to mention since now you HAVE to pay for ps+ i would rather pay 60 a year for 300,000 servers supporting everything. the xbox really is everything in one. not saying that the ps4 is a bad console but if i got one itd be for the exclusives, which we know it has very few of. even THIEF is coming to xb one.

    Well going by the reviews that are going live for the PS4 and its games the answer to your question is "YES"

    Except you don't leave random controller lying around and turned on. The Kinect is always on, waiting to ruin your day. Also, WILL it suspend your game if thing Jennifer clown comes in and interrupts you, then starts her own game?
    I don't think I'd have a problem if she interupted my TV watching to play.

    I think they might be retiring Media Center slowly or something. They have cut it out from Windows 8, and it's a separate purchase altogether (unless you were an early Windows 8 adopter and got it as a free download). I doubt they'll have NO streaming solution whatsoever, but it's hard to figure out what is possible without a console in our hands to find out.

    Also, I'm a bit concerned about the profile-switching. How smart is this Kinect, REALLY? If I'm playing a game, and some jackwagon relative comes in and says "show my stuff," is it going to kick me out?
    Not slowly. Media Center is dead. Media Center was it's own OS edition back in the XP days. It was a legacy app (no new development) since Vista and Windows 7. It's not even a part of Windows 8 (they had a way to install it on Windows 8. I believe as of 8.1 this is not even allowed.)

    Media Center is gone. It was nice, but no one bought it (not trying to discount you, I mean not ENOUGH people bought it). I have every expectation that XBox One will eventually have DVR capabilities of its own, but the pushback from providers meant it was a bad idea to try to get it in before launch.

    I still use my home server for movies, so I hope XB1's DLNA support is more robust than the 360's.

    No one bought it, but it was given out free with early Window 8 purchases. It was included in Windows Vista and 7 as well, wasn't it? You didn't HAVE to buy it before.

    Vista (and possibly 7) had SKUs with media center (that I believe cost more) so in a sense you did have to buy it. I used to use and love it back in the day, but I wouldn't hold your breath for support showing up. It'd be nice if they'd allow me to hook my HD-DVD player up to the One as well, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Good to know. I was just going by someone else's thread complaining that installing WMC screwed up their Win 8.1 machine (Surface Pro, I think). I don't actually use Media Center anymore.
