  1. Kinect Adapter for Xbox One X (Free)

    Just like Microsoft did for the launch of the Xbox One S, for those of us who want to run both and Xbox One X and an Xbox One S at the same time and enjoy using the Kinect, we will still require an adapter. Also for the people upgrading from the original Xbox One that want to use the Kinect will also require this adapter. People like me who use the Kinect and own multiple consoles should have the ability to get another Kinect sensor for the launch of the Xbox One X! Thanks Mircrosoft!

  2. kinect 360 games for Xbox one

    So I finally give in and buy an Xbox One (actually 2), as I am liking Win 10 (despite it's lack of proper VLAN support on client skus) and want to update my media server to 10. Since 10 has no WMC (another *** microsoft decision), I have to rely on Silicon Dust for DVR. If I want to watch recordings in process or before my nightly auto conversion, I have to use my Win 10 laptop connected to a TV. Having an Xbox One, solves that issue. Hearing that the core of the Xbox One is Win 10, I…

  3. Cortana Too slow

    Cortana is much slower then older voice commands. "Hey cortana" is longer and a pain since I do not use this command for anything else. I am using my xbox 1, so I want to call it xbox. Because of this i have learned my computer has voice commands as well because my computer tries to understand what I say when talking to the xbox (fustraiting). The auto search in snap mode when giving commands slows the process even more. Half of my TV channels are no longer found with Cortana and it snaps to the internet instead, searching for…

  4. Continue to support Kinect games

    I wonder... there is such a push for healthy life around the world. And you Microsoft not promoting and not continuing support for Kinect games as for tool to this goal makes us sit on the sofas, get fat and unhealthy and die in the age of 40 for so many painful ways. Cant you see ... we need to have great games for kinect for people in all ages to stay your consumers as long as its possible. Instead of implanting cross-connections with the xbox in our brains, lay down and drown in Virtual Reality like "batteries" in Matrix.…

  5. Bring back the KInect gestures for xbox Dashboard

    They were pretty good easy to use. It is a main attractive for the buyers of xbox one with kinect
    If Microsoft brings them back Every one will have the full experience
    of kinect as promised. If the gestures come back with few more new features and gestures the users will be able to use xbox eita an ease rather than using controller even for Dashboard

  6. Fire the entire Kinect team.

    The whole team should be fired. So many people want to use the Kinect and the whole program is dead. The games available horrible. Fitness app is on it's way out. Only reason i bought an Xbox was to interact with games i don't always want to use a controller. It sucks i wasted money on dead promises and the Kinect team has failed. Hire new people who can resurrect the project.

  7. Take out Cortana

    For In-Game commands, bring back "xbox" instead of "hey Cortana". Cortana makes it very inconvienient to do simple commands without disturbing your game, such as "Xbox record that" "xbox take a screenshot". Opening Cortana and waiting for it to load really sucks playing online in games such as Call of Duty: Black Ops III and similar games and often ruins the clip you are trying to capture.

  8. Hand gesture on dashboard

    Hand gestures annoy some people , give them the option to turn it off. If people aren't sure how to use an Xbox one controller (e.g parents) then they can simply use the Kinect hand gesture to move around between apps or dashboard pages. Thanks for Voting , Comment !!! SHARE!!!

  10. XB1 S Disables Kinect IR Blaster!! PLEASE FIX!

    Would like the ability to use the Kinect's IR blaster instead of the Xbox One S's built in one! The tiny single blaster on the new console just doesn't work where it is located. Give us the ability to select either or, or just use them both always! This is common sense MS get your crap together!

  11. Kinect Gestures Topic Merge

    There are tons and tons of threads about bringing Kinect gestures back, with votes in the multiple thousands, but they are spread so thin among many requests it's hard to see just how much overwhelming support this topic really has; these topics should be merged into one collaborative post to see just how much support this really has!

  13. Fix Kinect Xbox and Cortana commands

    Please fix select options. Since the last xbox update, whether you use xbox or Cortana for voice commands, you cannot select anything on screen (Netflix, Hulu, etc. I cannot speak on One Guide as we just relocated and don't have cable yet). Text no longer illuminates as selections. Cortana says, "say what you want to select" or something to that effect and then doesn't select anything.

  14. Kinect for Xbox One

    If you can't make the kinect games backwards compatible, then redo the popular ones. Kinect fans will buy them especially if you offer a discount if they own the game for the 360 version.

  15. Bring back the kinect gestures!

    When I bought my Xbox one I actually held off for a little longer to save up for kinect. I don't even play any Kinect games but I loved the voice commands and gestures. I was excited for developments to be made to improve the gestures, not for them to be removed entirely! I brought a product for a purpose and now that purpose is half diminished, please bring it back!

  17. Improve Performance of Cortana/Voice Commands

    Cortana's performance on the Xbox One is generally abysmal. Besides the extra syllables required to say, "Hey Cortana" vs "Xbox", she often takes significantly longer to think about simple commands, i.e. Pause/Play, Volume Up/Down, etc. Sometimes even with these simple commands she ends up snapping an internet search, which is the last thing the user wants as they're trying to watch something. "Hey Cortana sign in" is completely useless; I haven't gotten this to work once yet when the Kinect doesn't recognize me, which is almost every time. Also their are nuances when she does finally understand what your asking,…

  19. Bring back hand gestures - New Thread - Please vote here!

    Please vote here on this thread. Don't post new idea. About 1 year ago Microsoft updated Xbox One and removed the hand gestures. Sure it would work in the main area, but wouldn't work in other apps like Netflix where it did before. And when in another app you'd be able to bring your hands together to go "Home". This was the main reason I bought Xbox One and it's ridiculous for Microsoft to go backward. If anything bring it back, going a step towards the future, Microsoft should be pioneering gesture and voice control and play via Kinect.
