LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Xbox One might not work as well as advertised when it comes to voice detection.

During a 45-minute private presentation Wednesday that showcased the next-generation gaming console's media and entertainment capabilities, about 10 of the 45 voice commands issued had to be repeated by a Microsoft spokesman.

Microsoft has promoted the Xbox One as an all-in-one entertainment solution for living rooms that would allow users to easily switch between activities on a TV screen without needing to push buttons.

A spokesman for Xbox promised the voice detection feature would work better when Xbox One launches Nov. 22.

The console's voice-and-motion-detecting sensor will be included with each Xbox One. The system will cost $499.
