New Xbox with Siri-like speech recognition?

Microsoft is rumoured to have greatly improved its speech recognition technology inside the next Xbox.
The next Xbox - codenamed Durango and rumoured to be released later this year - will apparently support wake-on-voice, natural language controls, and speech-to-text capabilities, writes The Verge, citing unnamed sources familiar with the plans.

Other scenarios include adding capabilities to the Kinect sensor enabling it to detect individuals in a room and suggest appropriate multiplayer games after a user queries the Xbox using voice.

Natural language detection - similar to that of Apple's Siri - are also rumoured to be included in the next Xbox. So, checking out your friends' playlist or other searches (which would require some sort of response from the device) may not be so far fetched.

Last but not least - and as Skype is rumoured to be introduced to the new Xbox - a speech-to-text built-in might also be a good idea.
