TV Commercial Keeps Turning On Voice Activated Xbox One Consoles

by Ben Olson

Xbox One owners say "Breaking Bad" actor Aaron Paul has been switching on their consoles in an almost ghost-like move. In the new TV commercial for the Microsoft Xbox gaming machine, the Emmy-winning actor uses the Xbox's voice sensor to turn on his own console by saying "Xbox on." Social media sites are filled with users who say the command is working on their own consoles while watching the ad. The BBC says an Xbox spokesman had no comment on the issue at this time, although he did note that previous ads have also featured voice commands.
