Report: Xbox One features remote play, Kinect can talk to users
Polygon reports the Xbox One Kinect will speak to users like Apple’s Siri, and the system will feature remote play to allow friends to take over gameplay over an Internet connection.
According to two unnamed sources who have tested the features, the Xbox One Kinect will be able to speak with users, a feature that might not be available at launch.
Like Apple’s Siri, the Kinect could utilize the processing power of the 300,000 servers added to Xbox Live that Microsoft announced at the Xbox One reveal event last Tuesday.
The sources also told Polygon that the Xbox One will feature a remote play feature like the PlayStation 4. Users will be able to initiate the feature through Skype.
“It’s not clear,” Polygon wrote, “for instance, how long a person can remotely play or if they need to also own the game they are helping their friend play through.”
