Mediocre news, everyone! Bing voice search, via Kinect, is now available on your Xbox 360!
Yesterday I accidentally clicked on a Bing maps link (via Facebook) and my first instinct was to run around my living room screaming ‘GET IT OFF ME GET IT OFF ME’! Seriously, there’s just something about Bing that doesn’t sit right.
Maybe it’s the fact that a Bing search is literally one analogue stick movement away on the Xbox 360 dashboard, when you literally have to go out there and diligently search for top quality Indie games like Fez. That doesn’t work for me. The shoe-horning of an uninspired service into my user experience isn’t ideal, especially when good games are going unnoticed, so please forgive my cynicism.
Also — as if it’s going to understand a single word I say in my broad Scottish accent.
