Mom comes into kids room, "Turn that xbox off soon."

Xbox, "Xbox Off"

*switches off during save and corrupts data*

Glad I grew up with SEGA.

the parents who bought the thing would have assigned their voices and/or censor options anyway

Why would they not create a subroutine that checks if the game is saving and then wait until it is saved?

Why would they do half of the things that they just announced?

If they're not looking at the Kinect, the command will be ignored. It has an engaged status. If you're engaged (in front of it and looking in its direction), it will listen to the command. However, if you're not engaged, nothing will come of it.

I don't know if this works for guests, however.

I was installing FFIX on my 360 when it auto powered off. Corrupted the data and had to spend another several hours reinstalling.

So, yes, this is a legitimate concern.

even if they had that, it's still really inconvenient to turn off the console because "Xbox off" happened to come up in conversation or something.
