Marc Whitten, vice president for Xbox, revealed in a Twitter post overnight that the Xbox One will allow users to scan download codes using the Kinect camera instead of having to input codes for downloads through the console's gamepad.
With Kinect built so thoroughly into the new system and Kinectimals already taking advantage of QR codes, it's not a far stretch for Microsoft to add this functionality for the Xbox One release.
It will sure make things easier for gamers, rather than having to clumsily enter in the long codes manually.
