There are two distinct ways the Kinect fails, and the first feels inexcusable. Many of the voice commands are extremely rigid, to the point where you need to memorize a list of exact phrases to be able to use them reliably. If you want to go to an app, for instance, you need to start by saying "Xbox go to." But if you want to go to Bing, that structure doesn't work. The correct command is "Xbox Bing," because Microsoft expects you to unquestionably understand and accept that "Bing" should be a verb. If "Xbox on" turns on the console, why doesn't "Xbox off" turn it off? Because "Xbox turn off" is the proper command, and youíll need to memorize it. If youíre a Redbox Instant subscriber, get used to calling it "Redbox Instant by Verizon," because the Kinect wonít accept anything less. You can't say "Xbox play Forza," you have to say "play Forza Motorsport 5." There are dozens more examples like these.

I don't get people moaning that you need to say the full name of stuff, isn't it obvious you'll need to? Otherwise what would happen when a sequel comes out. Sure it might seem obvious right now what game you mean as there is only one title, but in 3 years time saying 'go to Dead Rising' or 'got to Forza' could mean any one of a host of games. Just look at Dead Rising on the Xbox 360, there are at least 4 different games (1, 2 and expansions) that all start with 'Dead Rising'.

It'd be nice if there was a sort of macro/shortcut feature at some point.

Because sequels don't apply to Redbox. The different wording for going to different things like a game or an app or Bing is just stupid.
