EvolveTV: Microsoft Kinect New Voice Commands Hands-On Preview

Most Xbox 360 owners caught wind of the latest voice-recognition updates for the Kinect during Microsoft’s E3 2012 press conference. You saw new commands demonstrated on some of the gaming platform’s biggest upcoming titles such as Madden ’13, FIFA ’13, and most notably, Splinter Cell: Blacklist. If you haven’t, we recommend revisiting the company’s E3 showcase (view here). Gaming aside, Microsoft’s been working hard on transforming the Xbox 360 into the ultimate entertainment console. Having headed out to its Miami Showcase, we chatted with marketing exec Chris Talbott, who gave us a hands-on preview of the Kinect’s latest voice navigation updates. Worked like a charm. Here’s a look at Kinect’s new features in action. Couch potatoes rejoice.
