It looks like the laborious task of typing the 15 digit codes on the Xbox LiveXbox Marketplace might become a thing of the past.

Eurogamer report that corporate vice president of Xbox Marc Whitten confirmed on Reddit that the Xbox One’s Kinect will scan QR codes.

“To my reddit friends — yup — this works!” Whitten wrote.

Users will therefore be able to scan in codes rather than type them in manually at the Marketplace.
