    The Xbox One will let you hand over to a friend via an Internet connection, so they can play through a tricky part of a game, sources claim.
    The Kinect motion sensor will also talk to you like Apple's Siri software, asking new people in the room to identify themselves. It's not known whether Microsoft will give the console a personality, like Siri, complete with smart-alecky responses.
    In a demo of the remote play feature, a player is said to have Skyped someone for help. (Microsoft owns Skype, remember.) A message popped up asking if it was okay to hand over to the person they were Skyping. Then once the Skyper (Skypee?) took over, the original player could watch them to see how they handled the tricky part. Either player could end remote play by pressing a button.
    It's not clear how long you'll be able to remote play for, or if both players need to own the game.
    The Siri-style talky talky part may not be available at launch, but could come as a patch within the first few months.
    Microsoft wouldn't confirm or deny the rumoured features.
