What's better than playing Grand Theft Auto IV or Dead Space 3 for hours? Never having to leave your seat to fetch the remote, while you play.

The Verge reports sources familiar with Microsoft Xbox plans reveal plans for incorporation of speech-recognition technology in the next iteration of the game console. Players can wake the game console just by telling it to. During multiplayer games, users might be able to set player settings with voice activation.

New Xbox plans will be unveiled this year at the E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo).
