An image posted by Reddit users requesting that the Xbox One Kinect 2 should read QR codes to redeem video game codes has been confirmed by Corporate vice president of Xbox Live Marc Whitten, simply tweeting the image back with a few words:

It's nice at least to know now that we won't have to spend so much time spamming endless combinations of numbers and letters to redeem a game code. There are certain posibilites such as this that can definitely enrich the experience of using the Kinect 2 - Hopefully Microsoft will utilise them more.
