Next Xbox Rumored to Have Voice Control Integrated

If you're a gamer, you're probably tingling with anticipation when it comes to the next-generation game consoles expected to launch this year from Microsoft and Sony. A new rumor is making the rounds today that the next-generation Xbox, code-named Durango, will have some interesting voice control technology baked in. According to the rumors, the technology is very much like Siri on the iPhone.

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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
