‘PlayStation, copy Xbox.’
One of the most iconic and ultimately useful things that the Kinect brought with it to the table for Xbox was voice commands. While it sounds like it may be a novelty gimmick, its convenience cannot be understated, which is why voice commands became one of the most popular ways to interact with Xbox.
