Personally I'd love to see Fight Night Kinect (or equivalent) and another attempt at Star Wars Kinect - some serious games and not just the likes of Kinect Sports that are marketed at kids and casual gamers. Voice commands for the Xbox One interface itself are great but I think there is currently a little too much emphasis on in-game voice commands considering how many gamers will be in party chats whilst playing and will be unable to use them.
And that is why Microsoft should be shipping the console with a headset!
They built in Kinect, which works for motion gaming and voice commands, but whilst doing so leaves the party chat redundant. You can either use your Kinect to communicate (which is something they are trying to encourage with the new rep system) in a game without Kinect, or use Kinect to play, whilst not being able to communicate.
Their ideas and reasoning are contradicting each other.
