Microsoft's Kinect for Xbox One can scan QR codes to save players the hassle of typing in download codes, Xbox Chief Product Officer Marc Whitten confirmed via Twitter
. Whitten was responding to a picture
posted to Reddit that demanded players be given the option, given the notion that Kinect will be required for the new system.
Whether QR codes will be made widely available in place of download codes on Xbox One is unknown, but the possibility has existed for some time, as Kinectimals
even used QR codes on the current iteration of Kinect.
