heck even the current Kinect works better than what he says about Kinect 2... so I have a hard time to believe what he is saysing.... then again if the guy is talking like that : "blablablablablablablbalabalaXBOXONblalalalalalaa"
chances it didn't work which makes complete sense BTW....

what I love about that article is the 35/45 voice command... that means the command scheme is really deep which is nice to know.... my battery will last way longer and i'll be able to do even more stuff conveniently than I can already today with the Kinect 1


Please tell me whatever was so inconvenient about picking up a controller and pushing three buttons to have the system turn on and sign you in and boot up a game.

why use something less convenient when you have better available... it's like people saying the IR blast is useless you can use a universal remote.... yeah and you can use a feature phone worth 10 bucks an old CD player and a radio for a couple bucks and all instead of buying a 600 bucks galaxy s4 or iphone 32gsXYz

when I turn on my XB360 when I get home usually I go in the kitchen grab a beer... tell the XB to go to my pins then I go grab a cigarette choose hulu or netflix with voice command while I go at the window to smoke it then I pick my show and I'm done... why would I grab the pad if I don't need to and I can do other things and be hands free to cook, be on my computer or on my phone doing other things ????....and I'm not talking when it's been an hour you are watching somethinbg the pad is off and it goes way faster even with the lag to use voice command than turn on the pad and navigate with it...

see right now watching sleepy hollow on hulu+ and I don't even know where the pad is.... I'm at my desk... in a minute I'll go do my cigarette break.... if I want to rewind or go to the next show I'm better off with voice command....



Some things have to work absolutely flawless for people to use it.

People bought Kinect because they thought it would scan their body in perfect 3D and translate it flawlessly into a videogame where they then can interact with the videogameworld in the same fashion they interact with the real world.

People like the idea of a voice command system because of movies like Iron man, Where you practically have a smart butler at your disposal at all times.

Ofcourse thats not where it has to start but atleast it should always work in a basic way so that a feature like this increases your convinience and not to be just a gimmick a taste of what the future will hold eventually,

that and with XBoss one and kinect 2 videao of the dashboard and snap app we have seen it is clearly showing how retarded it is to use the pad to do things when you could do it directly with voice command to switch/snap between things.... they all show it is slower

so yeah 10 second might not be much once in while but if you waste 10 second a day for 7 years it is 7+ hours you completely wasted when you could have been doing somnething else....



I believe the Kinect 2 is a massive leap forward in technology from the previous iteration, personally i have heard that it is much better than the last kinect. I guess some people just want to bury this no matter what.

IGN was impressed by the live demo and say that it worked.

Ok.

 

But IGN is a microsoft marketing partner. I think they are not allowed to post negative press. This artile on IGN would be "Xbox one has nearly perfect voice recognition, will improve even further".

 

The Verge was quite impressed as well. Or is it a marketing partner, too?

the verge impressions come clean in my books. As long as they are coherent with polygon. They are owned by the same company.

 

IGN is just not a trusteable source.

I expected nothing else. I've never seen a completely flawless voice command system.

Over the last month, I've had two rage-inducing moments with voice command phone systems. One was at work, which was annoying, but the other was even worse. The system could not understand me saying "no", which is ridiculous, then it would just kick me back to asking again. I repeated the word "no" over ten times before I was finally able to get out of the loop and get a live agent. By that time I was thoroughly pissed off.

I have zero interest in voice commands unless they're going to be perfect.


Usually if you just yell at the system a bit with random words/gibberish it'll connect you to someone who can connect you to who you actually need to talk to if they are not it. A few don't let you do that but most (I've used) do as they know that 100% of the people calling in can't be understood by a machine and need a back door method to speak to someone real.

The first place I referenced did give me the option to speak to an agent after about three fails.  The second place did not.  It felt like a broken loop, where it gave me no options but to keep trying.  By the end I was just saying stuff like, "I-said-NO-you-bleeping-piece-of-crap," and ,"NONONONONONbleepingNO."  I think it was pressing random buttons that got me out of the loop, though there were no instructions.

Thats exactly it. At one point i was just insulting the voice control for a couple minutes before giving up. After about 20-30 minutes of seriousness. Government services are good for that

n.b. : while watching sleepy hollow or any mindless entertainment.... and drink a beer.... can't really do all that while holding a pad can you??? But if you prefer the slower more tedious way good for you... you can...
