Struggling To Speak To Your Xbox One? We’ve Got Your Back

The power of Kinect can make or break your feelings towards Microsoft’s newly released next generation console if you have to repeat over and over again commands that are not recognised by the system. Here at Bagogames we recognize your frustration when you are forever shouting something at your Xbox One and begin to cry after the console fails to understand what you are asking it.

So, courtesy of IGN, we have put together a list of commands that you can actually say and what function it will bring to the table, hopefully reducing the amount of screaming you do at the console.
