We all hate laboriously typing in those 15-digit codes that publishers and platform holders insist on using, right?

Of course, that's not concrete proof that Microsoft will use a QR model for the Xbox One, but the possibility is there. It would mean retailers would be able to sell a card that Kinect would scan, thus quickly triggering a game download or adding currency to your Xbox account.
