The rumor claims that users will be able to turn the next-generation Xbox on using nothing but their voice. The rumor also promises that the voice control will support natural language controls and speech to text functionality. Next-generation Kinect technology that is supposed to ship along with the new Xbox also promises to be to detect individuals in a room.
When those individuals are detected, the technology claims to be able to suggest multiple player games. This rumor would match with previous rumors that have said speech recognition will be a big focus of the next Xbox game console.
