Read My Lips, Kinect 2!

A new report this morning says that the next generation of Xbox will come bundled with the next generation of Kinect - so powerful, it can read lips, or even tell when a user is angry. "Kinect 2 can track the pitch and volume of player voices and facial characteristics to measure different emotional states", says Eurogamer's source.
Any new Xbox console would need a new version of Kinect. The current technology uses USB to transmit data to the Xbox 360, which limits its capabilities. A new Kinect would use a different data connection, allowing for more data to be fed, as well as higher resolutions on the camera itself.
A successor to the Xbox 360 is rumored to be in development, possibly arriving at retailers as early as next year.
