E3: Xbox One ad is switching on Microsoft consoles

Recommended Posts

Xbox One owners are complaining that a new TV advert is switching their consoles on without their permission.

 

The ad - featuring Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul - has the actor say "Xbox On" near its start.

 

The instruction appears to trigger the machine's Kinect voice/motion sensor, activating the console.

 

A spokesman for the firm said it had no comment at this time, but noted that previous ads had also featured voice commands.

 

:laugh:

This reminds me of a video that was posted with a guy whose gamer tag was XboxOff or something similar and he was annoying people on CoD, getting them to say his name. As soon as they did, they had a message appear on their console asking if they wanted to switch it off. 

 

 

Not the original video I watched but still good.

Our developer/coder Tim Kimberl is also referenced (incorrectly as Tom) in that article :P
