good remote but doesn't work through kinect so no good if you have your xbox in a cupboard,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Official Xbox One Media Remote (Xbox One) (Accessory)
nice, stylish, lightweight remote which feels high quality. BUT- if you keep your xbox one in a media cupboard or out of direct view it won't work as it need direct line of sight to work.
you'd think the huge IR receiver on my TV (aka kinect) would function as a pretty good thing to point at but no.
for comparison my PS3 media remote is works by bluetooth so doesnt have this restriction. silly design if you ask me.
