Realistically, when can I expect a kinect-less model?

Maybe the next X1 model has Kinect permanently attached or hard-wired to the console.

If that were to happen, then it would just be another 180 by Microsoft, or technically a full 360.

There are assumptions people are making about the Kinect when they haven't owned one. A common theme seems to be "I can press a button which is superior to speaking a phrase" which is fine. My girlfriend is always yelling "Xbox Volume up!" at the TV when the remote is sitting right next to her and that annoys me. I don't do that.

Kinect does help out in various other ways, not to replace button touching but to enchace your experience. When I get home it's nice to put my coat on the chair while saying "Xbox On" and then by the time I sit down it's all loaded and I can say "Xbox Watch TV" without having to find the controller and turn it on. It's nice to say "Xbox Snap TV" when I'm playing a non-story driven game like Fifa and have a game on in the corner.

It's nice in Dead Rising when I'm doing a mission (for example, that stupid mission where you need to get 3 people to follow you into the house to shoot the porno) and you yell "Over here!" to get their attention.

It's nice in Madden to yell "timeout!" or "Spike it!" or "Pass!".

Just Dance 2014 was, not afraid to admit, really fun at first! (Though it did get boring). And I'm really pumped for Kinect Sports Rivals.

Anyways, all of these things are steps in the right direction. You CAN use Kinect to replace all your button pressing but I don't think that was the intent. It just add enhancements here and there that really make the experience a bit more engaging and fulfilling.

How many Xbox One games have you played using Kinect?


Given the nature of both motion and voice controls one does not necessarily need specific experience to know that one does not like them. I do not like giving voice commands. Period. Regardless of the device I'm interfacing with at the time. I prefer the economy of movement and precision of a button press to a larger arbitrary gesture. Period. Regardless of the device I'm interfacing with. I do not like it in the house. I would not like it with a mouse. I will not speak or wave my hand. I hate Kinect, dear Superman.


So, none.

Never. Each Xbone sold (with Kinect) increases their revenue opportunities with ads and testing new marketing technology.

The kinect adds to the immersion. Recording gameplay without having to pause or interrupt the flow of the game is an awesome feature. Some people will always fight against this stuff. It's a sad day when technology is hindered by those who fear change.

Your grandparents were the ones riding in a horse and buggy swearing that the "automobile" was a gimmick.

Navigating the bone menu without Kinect is nothing short of a pain in the ass, tc

No, they weren't.

Fighting against things you don't like is a bad thing, apparently. Although the fight is not to remove Kinect in its entirety, just to be able to purchase a system without it. And if we miss out on the mundane features you like so much? So what, doesn't affect you.
