One command i would love is turning the xbox on and off with your voice. I remember in the old project natal videos it had it displayed.

being able to control the xbox anywhere in the dash board not only the kinect dashboard.

i would also love a command to open quick launch. instead of game names they could use a list of numbers. your most recent games would be on the top of the list.
I'm liking the idea. The only one they probably won't do is the on/off one - firstly, the Xbox and Kinect sensor need to be powered on to be functional, so unless Kinect had a battery and a 'switch-on' function, it would not work. Also, the off command (was taken out, I think because) it could be annoying if someone said it (and since Kinect works all the time), it could switch off the entire console.
well using common sense to turn the consol off you would have to be in dash board and then say yes after you tell the xbox to turn off.

there also must be ways to make the kinect turn on. as an exmaple when you turn the xbox off, you still see that light on the box attached to the power cord.

That would indeed be awesome, but if all the stuff on the Xbox dashboard would be available in the Kinect dashboard then that would be fine for me too.

Yse, this is very good idea actually. But mostly useful for XBLA games, right?

Let's hope Microsoft will show us some great examples of where they're heading with voice...

I agree with the dashboard it wouldn't matter to me, however simply making the dash board controller AND kinect frindly so its the persons choie. Numbers and lists would make everything way simpler instead of names. Quick launch with kinect could be anygame really, it could be demos or games you downloaded into your xbox so you dont need the disc. Im no sure if you can stil go on live with no disc but it sure would be neat. basically turning on any game you want with your hand or voice.

I wonder why they dont turn off the light on the power cord after you turn off your xbox. Even though its a small light it still uses electricity 24/7. it switches from orange to green.

it sounds almost like an excuse to me for not releasing on and off commands for kinect. im sure these days there would be a way to do it without having the kinect fully on..
Microsoft is still yet to add voice control in other countries Sad
