Kinect Lobotomized? (Gaming)

Yeah. it's getting worse and worse. When I switched to the XboxOneX they had already discontinued the USB adapter (what a Brazil-esque conversation that was with he folks at the Microsoft store…) and people were price gouging for it so I didn't have it connected until about a year ago when I finally saw one being sold used for a reasonable price.

Now I find it's worse with voice commands than it was with Cortana, and so obviously with the pre-Cortana days. It seems to have trouble with wake word. I thought they had fully disabled voice commands, but it turns out I need to practically yell to make it work. I dunno. it used to work fine at a normal speaking volume, but I did move to a place with double the ceiling height so maybe it's a echo/reverb/SPL problem with the space I have it in?
