Xbox One Kinect Can Scan Download Codes

Posted on July 2, 2013 AT 03:54am

It appears that typing in long-winded codes to get your hands on downloadable bonuses may be a thing of the past thanks to Xbox One’s Kinect.

Marc Whitten, head of Xbox Live, revealed that the Xbox One Kinect will be able to scan QR codes to redeem content instead of typing in a long code.

This is fantastic news and actual gives me a reason to use the Kinect. There’s nothing worse than opening a new game only to find that you have to input several codes before you can even start playing.
