This is called reading way too much into it.

But yes, I see the irony.

reading tooo much into it?????????????????????????????

The entire commercial is highlighting Kinect and its voice featuers, then at the end it turns out it just for the the new Kinect-less XBOX for $399

How are you gonna advertise something you removed from your product?

The least they could of done was but a discliamer saying "Kinect Sold separately." But they didnt.

The are trying to fool you into thinking you can buy an XBOX for $399 and get to do the voice functionality.

Well it does say "Now Starting at 399$."

It's more of them trying to showcase the features of the kinect to see if people will buy the kinect bundle over the kinect-less bundle.

Just cannibalise the thread and turn it into this:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-27827545

"Xbox One owners are complaining that a new TV advert is switching their consoles on without their permission.

The ad - featuring Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul - has the actor say "Xbox On" near its start.

The instruction appears to trigger the machine's Kinect voice/motion sensor, activating the console.

A spokesman for the firm said it had no comment at this time, but noted that previous ads had also featured voice commands."

Now this is just genius marketing. Well played Microsoft.

#33 Posted by chikenfriedrice (10415 posts) -

At least they are still advertising the awesome features of Kinect.

I will say that they are being a bit disingenuous about how fast the xbox turned on and how fast the apps loaded.....takes a little bit longer to load than what was shown.

You made a thread about this? Seriously?

#39 Posted by clr84651 (5446 posts) -

Yes, the Kinect is a necessary integral part of X1. Then MS backtracks & takes it out & runs a commercial using it & then shows the Kinectless price at the end. LOL

They only way they could tell a difference is if Digital Foundry was right next to them whispering in their ear **look at those textures, they are slightly better on the PS4 version**

Average gamer side by side can't tell a diff....it takes deep analysis.

You'd be surprised. I've played games and switch back and forth to watch a basketball game or football game many time. When commercial comes on, I switch back to my game and play for 4-5 minutes. I know a few people who do this. That's really not the main reason for it though. Is there so you can Skype the friend(s) you are playing with or against. So if you're playing Titanfall, you can Skype your friend playing in your group. That is very cool watching the reaction and talking to your friend while playing.

#46 Posted by Fuhrer_D (45 posts) -

@silversix_:

I use the snap feature all the time. Either to let the little one watch Super Why/ Word World (Netflix or Hulu Plus) while I play a game, to watch/listen to StarCraft cast on Twitch/ Youtube while I do Xbox Fitness, to watch/listen to Browns games while I play a game, and now to talk to my sister (in college) on Skype while I play a game. Its a really great feature.

Are they selling EVERY Xbox One without Kinect, or will there always be bundles? If so, then this thread can be closed...

Yeah, I got no problem with that commercial. I did find it funny that XB1 owners are having some issues with it though...
