Major Nelson just dropped a vine on redeeming a code, I thought it was pretty neat.

That's nice.

That's like five seconds, neat! I'm guessing you would get emailed a code and you could just scan your phone on Smartglass like that.

Sure that's cool. Although my phone can do exactly the same thing (and I don't have to talk to it).

@joshwent: am I the only person who doesn't want to talk to any device, like...ever?

@jrock3x8: I don't usually, but if it is that fast I would rather do this than what I do now.

A good use of the Kinect. I wonder if there will be an Out of Milk app.

It's people like you that prevent us from getting to the star trek future we all want.

This is something I crave every time I have to punch in some 25 digit DLC code.

Sigh, Something Eyetoy has been able to do since the PS2 days. Keep your fisher price bootleg cam, micro$oft.

@andheez: Moved to the Xbox One platform board - please review this topic before posting any further threads, thanks.

Also, you may want to take a look at the rules, specifically those on spam. I know it's a simple news story but we don't really want people starting new forum threads with essentially nothing more than a link saying "This is interesting, go read" for every random video game tidbit they find on the net. When you share something like this it should be accompanied with some of your own original thought, at least something more than a single sentence that will hopefully also promote discussion.

Yes. Yes your are. Stop holding back our digital future!

If you'd rather flip through menus looking for the redeem code button, the feature is there for you mutes.
