Xbox One Kinect to allow users to scan QR codes, entering them manually now optional

Do you hate typing redeem codes using your game controller? If so, you’re not the only one. Fortunately, Microsoft is now making this a thing of the past…at least for the Xbox One.

The upcoming console’s Kinect will allow users to scan codes using the Kinect’s camera as confirmed by Microsoft’s Marc Whitten.

This is not really a new thing, as the Xbox 360’s Kinect allows this for games like Kinectimals, but it’s still a welcome feature nonetheless. Heck, who wouldn’t want to not have to enter any 15-digit code ever, right?

For those still harping on about the Xbox One’s mandatory inclusion of Kinect, at least there’s this small consolation.
