Xbox 360’s Kinect causes trouble for users during next-gen livestream reveal

Xbox 360 Kinect owners had some trouble today watching Microsoft's Xbox One reveal due to device's response to "Xbox" commands spoken during the livestream.

Several users took to Twitter to document their problems, which included pausing, opening Xbox Live or quitting the stream entirely. Polygon's own reviews editor Arthur Gies experienced similar problems with his Kinect while watching the stream.

Microsoft unveiled its next-gen console, Xbox One today during a one-hour presentation. The Xbox One will require a Kinect-connection at all times to properly run. According to Microsoft, the Kinect is "an essential and integrated part of the platform" and will enable users to switch between games, apps, TV and more.
