he compares it to a PC mouse with only 1 button, then clarifies that it's more like a mouse with 0 buttons. in other words, he is not a fan of kinect. can't we all agree that, however good or bad xbox1 is, the kinect portion of it is just a worthless gimmick that has no value?

No. No we cannot. I actually look forward to Kinect.

Another industry expert that holds no favour toward kinect, I wonder how this will be spun?

Yea kinect sucks for games. It will never have a decent game besides the obvious (dance, jumping, waving arms around) and you could tell that from the start.

I'm sure some people appreciate the voice controls though.

A gaming dinosaur that refuses to evolve saying something bad about some new tech he doesn't know what to do with?

He also talked about how The Cloud would replace consoles two years ago.

You know, The Cloud that we laughed so hard about?

Yeah, the way MS is spinning it. It will never be a "help" processing unit, the latency is too much.

But as a streaming service? It most certainly could.

Well obviously it wouldn't be useful for an id game. Not that id is really relevant anymore(unfortunately).

Who mentioned games? I want to talk to it and be lazy. Also, the way they are using it in some games like DR3 intrigues me.
