This is how it will work.

They will connect to eachother, but because xboxone has more power, it will try to dominate the cablebox. But to fight back, cable box will stop xboxone from connecting to some channels. All of a sudden the cable box will say the words, switch off xboxone and it will.

This is not how it will go down at all. The Xbox one won't have to fight, because it will still be on the shop shelf getting dusty.

No, Kinect 2.0 will see that & gently correct you.

people already have kinect, just like people already have a wii and dont want a wii U, they dont want the next iteration. it was a fad. Casuals are a stupid gamble, ask Nintendo.

just hit the input/souce button a couple of times and there you go, cable tv.

Can I ask, what is the advantage of plugging the cable box into the X1 and not directly into your TV?

How would Kinect allow it to change video inputs? Did you not view the event? It was instant going from game, to TV, to music, back to TV, to the web and back to the TV.

There is no more fumbling for the remote to go from input 1, then to input 2 then back to input 1 and so on.
