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.


this. my remotes sprout legs....go out and get drinks....and then come home and i see them 6 hours later laying on the bed in plain site despite i checked the bed 20 times before.

i like the idea that i dont have to hunt(i hear freshly opened batteries make good bait) for the remote.

No, No, No. You have it all wrong. It is much easier to find and use a remote in a dark room than speaking one or two words at your TV.

I will try and see it from your point of view, but I doubt we'll be able to fit both our heads up there.

That's great for people who will take advantage of it, but I for one cannot imagine myself barking orders at my TV in my house. That just seems silly.

Pretty sure it takes more energy to say "Xbox stop, Xbox rewind, xbox stop, xbox forward wind, xbox stop, xbox rewind, etc" when it inevitably doesn't stop on the parts of the movie you want it to, than it does to click a button on your controller.

I can see why some people might find it 'neat', but I honestly don't see people using it more than simply pressing a button.


My wife and I cut off the Xbox control when watching shows and movies (not to mention even when we don't, it cuts itself off after 15 minutes or so) so we usually use Kinect commands to control streaming shows and movies and have often complained about how it doesn't work on dvds. Watching movie for an hour need bathroom break, first wait for control to come back on than pause, "Xbox Pause" is quicker.
