The Xbox One decides to give gamers a taste of what its new interactive dashboard offers, though it’s not much of a preview if you’ve has been following the news.
The commercial showcases the voice-activation and interaction feature and the ability to multitask using various applications. For example, you can watch T.V. while surfing the web by saying “Xbox, snap Internet Explorer.” Gamers can also switch seamlessly between applications, from watching a movie to playing a game with a single voice command.
This is all possible thanks to the Xbox One’s new Kinect camera, which uses advanced facial and voice recognition to remember who a player is. Using only the Kinect camera, the Xbox One can remember a player’s information and automatically log them into their Xbox Live account; eliminating the need for passwords and other credentials.
While it is an impressive 1 and a half minute display of the new dashboard’s capabilities, the Xbox One’s Kinect camera and interactive features were discussed in great detail at its E3 premiere. However, this new demonstration of the Xbox One’s various interactive uses would seem to reinforce Microsoft’s decision to market the new console as more than just a gaming machine.
What do you think? Is the Xbox One’s new dashboard enough to pique your interests? Or does it seem all flash and no gaming substance?
