The Microsoft Kinect controller is being bundled with every Xbox One games console and will play an integral part of the consoles set up and system. Enabling gamers to control functions and navigate through both menus and within games using voice controls and hand gestures. As well as play specific games tailored for gesture-based interaction.
Also Kinect data used to define your facial expressions within some games does not identify you and also stays on the console and is destroyed once your session ends.

“This information is used for many purposes, including to help select and display targeted advertisements that we believe may be of interest to you.
