The New Kinect Means You Won't Have To Enter Codes On A Control PadS

The Kinect is mandatory on the Xbox One—which means that one of gaming's most annoying facets, entering a million codes every time you buy a new game, doesn't have to exist according to Microsoft's Marc Whitten.

Why? Because you'd just be able to scan a QR code in! Easy. We've contacted Microsoft to ask if there are any plans to actually implement this, and will update as soon as we hear back.

To my reddit friends — yup — this works! http://t.co/QHnOPZqib1
