We hear that the new Xbox One commercial is turning on consoles and leaving some owners annoyed in the process. In the new ad which features Aaron Paul from Breaking Bad, he says “Xbox On” at the start of the commercial. It’s enough to trigger Xbox Ones around the world to turn on.
According to the BBC despite other commercials having voice commands, apparently Paul’s voice hits the sensor just right to create problems.
The instruction appears to trigger the machine’s Kinect voice/motion sensor, activating the console.
A spokesman for the firm said it had no comment at this time, but noted that previous ads had also featured voice commands.
A few others have taken to Twitter complain:
