Why do you suppose Microsoft is being so stubborn about Kinnect?

What do ya think? While I hate everything about Kinnect, I didn't add an option regarding the spying thing, sorry. There are plenty of topics discussing that already, and very few talking about what I feel is the real reason they are forcing it.

You need an option for "It's recouping the money they have lost due to the drm removal"

I hope for MS sake this Kinect 2.0 actually works. Virtually nobody liked/used their Kinects. The only game I could play with Kinect ,and not want to rip my own head off in frustration, was Child of Eden. It also sucks they could not find a way to build it into the X1. Now it's just one more piece of crap I have to find space for in a crowded entertainment center.

Pros: The pills were there.
Cons: So was the tank.

I am pretty sure they are aware at this point how unpopular the device is and so are developers. Their refusal to remove it and make it an option for those that don't want it sends a pretty clear message.

"They plan to use it for an advertising tool" as in they are using the built in Kinect to advertise to casual gamers.

You should have added the real option, casuals love it.

Gamers console sales = 10 million

Casuals = 100 billion +

I don't see how the Kinect can be used as a viable advertising tool when the console is not required to be connected to the internet, the Kinect can be turned off and it can be unplugged to boot.
