Xbox One will support QR code scanning, it has been revealed.

Marc Whitten, corporate vice president of Xbox, confirmed the news after a recent image gained popularity on the social site Reddit.

The Xbox One's Kinect.

The image suggested that if users were required to have a Kinect, the least it could do was support QR code scanning.

Xbox One's support for QR code scanning via Kinect should eliminate the number of 25-character codes players must enter to unlock new content.

Xbox One will launch this autumn priced at $499 in the US and £429 in the UK.
