Xbox One Takes 12 Seconds to Start Using “Xbox On” Voice command

on November 14, 2013 7:37 AM

A video released today by Microsoft’s Major Nelson shows that the Xbox One will take around 12 seconds to start up, load the dashboard and log in from stand by mode.

This is around 5 seconds faster than the cold boot time reported earlier this week. However, in the video shown the system is in a low power mode as opposed to being fully switched off, evidenced by the active Kinect microphone.

The fast load time is being advertised by Microsoft as a way to get your system up and running for a play session ” faster than you can find your controller.”
