Early impressions of the X1, mostly favorable.

Seems MS is letting some members of the press get more hands on time with the X1. Here is some articles about it.

Mostly they are about the OS and UI. Sounds pretty good.

"The downside of voice command is that it isnít always recognised. From time to time during his 45-minute demo of the system, Penello had to repeat himself. When I tried to command the Xbox in a conversational tone, it didnít work"

Hopefully they fix the voice commands

I remember thinking that when I bought the kinect so many years ago ^_^.

considering how integral they have made Kinect out to be...it's a major sticking point really. There have been absolutely no live demonstrations of Kinect...If I remember correctly, I believe even the E3 demonstration & use of Kinect was prerecorded & mimicked.

That being said, the only people that said it would flop were the fanboys...I simply don't think it will be as successful of a brand as it was previously.

The current Kinect is already ridiculously accurate(although I use the controller instead, the wife uses it all the time). I don't see the next iteration being an inferior product.

My point is that a lot of the articles talked about the voice functions favorably. But those things in the articles got skipped over by those two posters. And these articles were written from live demonstrations. And yes the writers were also allowed to use it. So no it was not prerecorded.

I'm guessing it's going to have similar accuracy to Siri for apple stuff, it won't be perfect, but can still be useful. Being able to say 'x box snap internet explorer' while playing a game sounds nice. You can then say display a gamefaqs page while playing the game.

I always laughed when people yelled at their Xbox to do things, then give up quickly and grab the controller lol. People gave up controlling the OS through motion in minutes from what I remembered because it's so much better with a controller.

I'm glad I'll still get to laugh at people yelling at their Xbox though :)
