Rumor: When Kinect Talks Back to You, It Uses Cortana’s Likeness

Cortana vs Siri Xbox ONE Voice

We’ve known for some time that Xbox ONE will be able to not only take your voice commands through the improved version of Kinect that comes with it, but that it will also be able to respond to your commands with a voice of its own. A rumor has been reported this morning by reliable sources that say the beloved A.I. Cortana from Bungie’s Halo universe will be the personality embodied by these voice replies.

Not only that, but that they will also launch on the Windows Phone in an attempt for Microsoft to compete with (and possibly gain some market-share on) the Siri voice which is exclusive to the Apple iPhone. This functionality is expected to hit Windows PC, Windows Phone, and Xbox ONE some time in Early 2014 if it’s real. If it’s not real, I think somebody just gave Microsoft the ultimate idea.
