Microsoft released ad earlier this month with Paul showcasing the voice commands available in the Xbox One. At the beginning of the commercial, Paul says “Xbox On,” the command console owners can use to interact with the Kinect sensor and turn on the console. While everything initially seemed just fine about that commercial, it turns out some gamers have discovered that Paul’s command in the ad will get picked up by their Kinect and turn on the Xbox One in their home.
