In a spectacular demonstration of both the capabilities of the Kinect and the ease with which you can take advantage of your fellow gamers in the heat of the moment, one user changed his Xbox One gamertag to the amusement of all.When sitting in the comfort of your living room enjoying a couple of rounds of your online game of choice, it is more than a little common to shout the username of someone in the same game as you. One user decided to take advantage of the situation by changing his gamertag to “Xbox Sign Out” to see what would happen.According to the user, a lot of people accidentally signed themselves out and removed themselves from the game. In order for this to happen, you have to not only accidentally tell your Xbox One to sign out, but you’d have to accidentally follow that up with a button press to confirm it. Those who didn’t sign themselves out managed to put on quite a show, one that is well worth a look.It seems unlikely that Microsoft will allow these kinds of gamertags to exist after today, but you can’t help but laugh and admire how effective this troll really is. There’s so many different voice commands for the Xbox One now that this joke could be adjusted several times over and still be funny.It’s the kind of thing that is hard to pay attention to in the heat of the moment, but is way too funny even if it happens to you.
