Xbox 720 comes with Siri-like speech recognition? New Xbox is chatty, apparently.
Microsoft's next Xbox console will come with improved speech recognition, much like Apple's Siri service, according to a report by The Verge.

It cites sources familiar with Microsoft's Xbox plans in reporting that the next Xbox will have greatly improved speech recognition functions compared to Xbox 360 + Kinect. It will support "wake on voice", natural language controls and provide for speech-to-text.

Users will be able to ask the Xbox console questions - like what games their friends are currently playing - and the Xbox will give answers. The Xbox can also be told to play certain movies, which will resume from where they left off.

Skype is also expected to be woven into the next Xbox console, which is expected to be shown off at E3 this year and ship in major markets before year's end.
