The old one couldn't do it, so this is a nice new feature.

Your sarcasm is duly noted and promptly discarded.

Lol knowing Microsoft though, this is going to cost extra and can only be used once per disc.

Okay okay, obligatory Xbone hate joke is out of the way. This a cool feature, nothing really innovative or new but I could see it being used y a lot of people. One of the more accessible and simple features of the kinect.

I kinda expected this though...if you're going to have voice commands why not use them on a good feature like dvd/bluray playback. Since Sony confirmed voice control recently I wonder if PS4 will get that or not...also wonder if either console will allow voice control from headsets or kics instead of just from the cameras mics. Still so much we don't know for sure.

Neat, I guess.

Along with saying "autosave" to save my game i can add this to the list of now two kinect features I enjoy using.

Because shouting at your TV is so much easier than pressing a button on your remote...

I can see it being much easier to say "pause" than to figure out where you set your remote if you are watching something at night. Especially if you are like me and your placement of the remote tends to migrate.

I didn't realize that command was a thing.
