So early adopters got screwed

They had to get the awful unwanted Kinect with their console, because apparently forcing Kinect would encourage developers to use it.

Fast forward to today and Kinect still hasn't seen any decent use to justify its existence, and soon new customers get the console alone at the lower price tag. Ouch.

No, they screwed themselves by ignoring the blatant red flags in front of them.

Early adopters always get screwed, that is the price of having the newest thing right away.

Except the few people who actually like/want the kinect.

Depends on the user really. If you were to buy a Kinect model for the kids, it works. The user who wants to Skype across the world a ton from their living room, it helps too. It's all about making use of it. I wonder if the voice features are possible without a kinect through the Xbox Live headset?

That only matters if you never wanted the kinect in the first place...

I always early adopt knowing the pitfalls of it. My PS3 cost me $600 but 7 years later I barely notice, just the fun I had. My XB1 ran me $500 sure but at the end of the day will I really notice a mere $100? Nope. It's just part of being an early adopter
