Serious question.What makes Knect on X1 worth the extra 100 dollars?

#1abbeldydooPosted 1/5/2014 5:45:59 PM
From what i understand MS had to use lesser system parts than PS4 and also jack the price 100 dollars more because they wanted to include this as part of every system.

I am not here to argue i am just seriously curious if they actually use it this time in a way that warrants the sacrifices that are made to include one with every system.I played with the first one on 360 at a friends and it was amazed how horrible it was,i assume they have vastly improved since then.

TLDR:Have they made good use of the Knect on X1 so far and if they havent do they plan on using it better than the old one?

The real question is since PS4 originally priced at $500 as well and at E3 they decided to pull the camera and reduce the price by $100, why does the camera retail for only $60? Were they artificially inflating the price of the console + camera by $40?

Nothing makes the Xbox One worth $100 more, including the Kinect. Apart from the automatic sign in, I don't use any of it's features. They're terrible IMO.

The only reason I purchased it over a PS4 is that I prefer the MS exclusives.

I'll eventually buy a PS4 since that's what all my IRL friends bought, but not until more games are released.

So,have they made better use of the Knect this time?have they announced any big plans for it yet?

I am not interested in a PS4 vs X1 thing i am just curious if they are making the Knect worth owning.that is all.

It's Kinect.

Just thought you might want to know how to correctly spell it next time you create a troll topic.

As I said in my response, the Kinect features are terrible and don't make it worth any extra money.

Voice commands work many 50% of the time for me. I have a deep voice which it seems to struggle recognizing.

The hand commands aren't very accurate.

The microphone seems to pick up way to much. I don't like hearing peoples families in the background while playing online.

Other than a few games, none of them seem to use it's features.

If you disconnect the stupid thing you're stuck with an icon in the top right corner all the time.

Unlike mumbles above me, The only time Kinect has problems understanding what I say is when trying to change certain TV stations.

Also, if you disable Kinect the only time you see the reconnect message is on the dashboard. It's not intrusive at all.

Nothing at the moment. I keep telling my friend off for using a controller to do everything on the menus and for turning the console off with the power button, because he paid for it so he might as well use it.

Oh, but we do gave fun playing Killer Instinct and screwing up each other's combos by yelling out "Xbox, porn!" (It hears it as pause).

Typing on a phone, so ignore all spelling mistakes. Damn autocorrect.

Calls me mumbles and then admits Kinect has problems understanding him while changing TV stations.

Thank you for confirming the Kinect's voice commands don't work properly.
