That...is impressive. Sony...are you seeing this? Make it happen.
gaffyh  +   663d ago
It is a good idea though business wise, they need to make it as easy as possible for you to buy something. MS has always been good with this, Sony is catching up now.

Also, finally a useful function for a QR code.

ummmmmmmm this raises the resolution of games to match the PS4 how?????????
FamilyGuy  +   663d ago
I came in here thinking "Who gives a f..., how fast could it be anyway?"

Saw the gif and was like "Holy sh..! I never even thought of that"

That's a pretty good use for the kinect, reminds me of the first time I saw Iphones read bar codes and compare store prices.

You get a cool point today MS, but don't let it go to your head. Even though it's a small thing, they should've been showing features like this one sooner as they could've given inspiration to making new features.

They should make it able to read and input credit card info too so you don't have to type it all in if you want to attach one. 16 digits, name, exp, and back code are a much bigger pain.
Considering the size of that code it probably won't happen for credit cards though, the thing is as big as his fist, but like I said, inspiration.

NOT a chance LOL!

on a serious note, why is he now demoing this? shouldn't he be answering for this quote of his?

"We have some of smartest programmers in the world working on Xbox One," Hryb said. "I am very much looking forward to the next few months (and beyond) as the truth comes out."

the truth is out but all he do now is showing how quick the Xbone can grab your money!

admittedly that is indeed quite useful adding, easier than punching in 12 digit codes having said that i'm sure someone somehwere is already thinking about how to abuse that feature

DoomeDx  +   663d ago
Thats not quicker at all :/

- Get the phone out of your pocket

- Unlock the phone

- Open the QR Scanner application

- Scan the code.

- Wait for it to finish scanning..

- Done!

Yea the xbox one actually looks like a good console.Has some strong launch titles.Sure you can say ps4 is better at gaming,that's what im getting, but overall Microsoft seems to always have a better interface and just seems more connected and easir to watch and use movies or tv shows or anything other than games better than sony's ps4...im getting a ps4 for gaming because im a gamer but i see myself getting a xbox one and using it more than the ps4 for other things than gaming....not saying the ps4 can do this things im just saying that Microsoft dose those things better.

And this is just the beginning. I can't wait to see what developers can do with the kinect 2 now that is included in ever XB1. I'm sure the extra $100 buying the XB1 will be well spent.
JackISbacK  +   662d ago
yeah this is quick but now i'am felling trhat xbox is going in a wrong direction ,because for console first priority is that atleast they must get for what they are paying at least on multiplats ,yeah i know features on box one is going to e damn good ,but ps4 guys are getting better p[erformance on games and iggest thing is they are paying much less than us ,thts realy dissapointing, yeah resolution and fps realy matters very much ,before creating this conole thier first aim must be to get same graphics as other consoles are getting and then their all good features ,yeah their feature are going to be so good that 100$ will not be a big deal,but so much lacking in graphics is the most biggest factor not to buy this console ,i'am not afan boy but xbox 360 realy inspired me lat gen but this time every thing is changing now i will wait for good news and will buy my next gen console later ,i was realy hoping multiplats are gona be same but now they looks realy backward.

Nice feature, but we've been able to use IR codes on our cellphones for a long time, yes very handy, but not innovative. Some good use of the Kinect
theWB27  +   663d ago | Well said
The first telephone call was made on March 10th, 1876
Fast forward 137 years to November 6, 2013 and we STILL have phone companies selling us on how good their call qaulity is. It's a major selling point too because you want things to be as good as it can be.

Innovation means: the act or process of introducing new ideas, devices, or methods

I firmly believe pessimists mistake innovative with inventions. Something this small hasn't been done on consoles...thus it's innovative.
cell989  +   663d ago
good point, I will agree with you on this one

I'll give you a well said bubble either way because it gets the point across perfectly.

I write scripts in my free time...so I can be articulate when needed. : )
JackISbacK  +   662d ago
yeah xbox guys are more inovative than ps4 guys but thier backwardness in gaming is not gona tolerate for long after that every big inovation is gona flop because already xbox one is expensive and we are getting less than ps4 guys and also they are paying less for better experience ,yeah inovating is good but at least you must be sure that you kept every thing perfect at least par with your competitors.

Sounds like you're not getting a PS4? If not, have fun missing all the great games that'll be coming out for it. No sense being a fanboy, just get both an X1 and a PS4. That's what I'm going to do. Because, ya know... I'm a gamer. I like games.

On topic though, this is a very handy feature. It will certainly save a lot of time (and/or pain from entering one wrong letter/number). :]

MS needs to make a commercial DIRECTLY addressing why the XB1 is $100 more than the PS4. It could start off with a mom pressuring her kid to get the cheaper PS4, when all of a sudden Major Nelson comes out of nowhere and performs camera gestures and voice controls on the XB1.

The mom and kid are stunned with a mom grabbing an XB1 and running to the register. Nelson puts on dark tint sunglasses and as he leaves the store, a store clerk casually says

"C ya 2morrow Major"

Nelson (overly happy with himself) replies "....yup"

Daaamn. That's what next-gen is for me about. Upgraded graphics is great but the ease of use and amazing features is what I want. If I'd only care about graphics I'd just play on my beefed up PC.
Kingthrash360  +   663d ago
ok guy so use that redeem feature to buy apps and pay for live...then game on your pc or ps4.
x1 has the best features on consoles...i just wish they weren't all available on my phone. then i would't have to pay twice for them.

You can play games on your phone too. This mean you are skipping out on the PS4 also? I mean, they are the same thing right? Now that you mention it, I can watch Netflix on my phone. What in the hell am I doing with a big screen HDTV?

Nobody is saying Kinect is worth it due to this small feature. It is exactly that, a small feature that makes gaming a little easier. Isn't that why you paid for a smart phone, to make life a little easier?
Kingthrash360  +   663d ago
phones have games?...which came first console gaming of phone gaming?
cuzzzzz thats my point this isnt a innovating feature has NONE to do with gaming and youd have to read ballzeye's comment about features out weigh the games on a gaming console.
i said in my comment x1 has the best features, its just its supposed to be about gaming...no? seem theyve put that on the back burner in favor of apps...to me, thats a shame.
4Sh0w  +   662d ago
nah, I disagree Kingthrash Ryse, DR3, Forza5, and KI, all are games I can play at launch, of course a few great multi games as well and micro has plenty of announced games coming and are re-investing in studios to expand them and opening new ones, so imo given their future plans and that they currently easily have a better launch lineup than ps4 imo but even if you disagree about which lineup is better it would be delusional to say they are not putting out games for their fanbase to enjoy which is why your comment makes no sense, they have some great games as I'm sure ps4 will have too but they are in fact doing some other great things with their console. Sony seems to be more about games only which is great but it doesn't mean others cant do that and offer more too. Sony's way is not the only way, both companies make each other better.

so hard to comment to x1 fans now days...smh i never said ms didnt have games nor was i talking about line ups...i was saying ms wasnt focused on gaming. clearly a company who is in the pc game and has tek guys who know what's good for powerful gaming as far as hardware is concerned were clearly out played by sony. sony made the strongest console for gaming and ms made the strongest most expensive entertainment device. this was known at the reveal when all they talked was tv 87.4 percent of the time. then they talked a lil cod,,,the same cod that is the most flawed of ALL cod ghost games including ps360 versions. its struggling at 720p for gods sake,,,man y'know what im done. enjoy the x1....just know that its not u playing them its them playing you...enjoy your ads and paywalls and batteries and headphones and lower rez games for $500. i dont care i gotta ps4 with no ads and higher rez and a paywall that gives me multiple games monthly on multiple consoles no batteries and free headphones for $100 cheaper...smh

Point is, this can be done with a standard camera it's nothing special, QR codes have worked on phones for god knows how long. This could be implemented on the 360 with the standard camera. 100 extra for that, no thanks.

yah, cause this is only feature Kinect has...

Oh wait, of course every other feature costs $100 too, right?

Gesters? $100.
QR codes? $100.
Voice commands? $100.

Lemme guess, it's a $100 overpriced microphone too.

Nope - the best - we're paying $100 more to be spied on. (i suggest going with that one ;p)

Chrono  +   663d ago

Death  +   663d ago
It's probably a little less about saving you 10 seconds and more about making digital downloads that use codes more attractive to customers. We will probably see more new games come with codes to reduce used sales a little and we will definately see more downloads codes for sale at retail shops.
