If so, for what? I personally dont use it because I've never been fond of having a camera being pointed at me. Plus you never know what could truly be going on behind that camera, even when its supposedly "off".

I use it to turn my Xbox on or off. I don't use it for anything else.

Not everyone with a difference of opinion or that has criticisms is a troll.

I use it to turn Xbox on/off, change the channels, say orders in Ryse and fling zombies off me in DR3. It's not an essential piece of equipment by any means, but I did set it up and it does work well.

For everything. I don't pick up the controller until I say "Xbox play 'x'". Other than that I'm just using Kinect to control things. I can't imagine using the controller to navigate the system, it has to be slower by orders of magnitude.

Just to turn my system on and off, or while i pause Amazon Instant video. I sometimes use it in Dead Rising to stun the bosses. Oh and i use it for chat since MS gave me a busted headset. It works pretty well for all of these, and my friend said he had no idea i was using kinect to chat when we played.

Other than that not so much. I would have probably gotten a kinectless model if they had one but kinect is kind of neat packed in. I do hope developers support it and try to do cool things with it since its with all XB1's

I use it often. It's a fast and easy way to get around.
