With the xbox 360, it was QUITE popular during the initial 2 years. But after that, it became something that just didn't sell much at all. It kept selling somewhat and used somewhat, but most gamers didn't care for it that much anymore and the casuals that really fueled the Kinect to start already got it.

That pretty much continued for the xbox one. It was bundled with the system, but for the most part, gamers still didn't seem to care too much. The causals that fueled the early sales of the Kinect 1.0 already have a kinect with their 360 (just like the casuals that bought a Wii didn't buy the Wii U).



So, what do you think will happen?

1 - Kinect 2.0 will be like what the Kinect 1.0 is for the Xbox360 right now...a machine that's bundled with some of the consoles and sell ok and some are sold used on ebay. It gets almost no developer support, though it does get a slow stream of Kinect only games

or

2 - Kinect 2.0 just dies out after year 2. They let it die off and introduce something else (a new "super accessory") in year 3 or Year 4 .

I go with option 2.5

They copy Sony's idea and release a VR headset.

that' is what I'm thinking....not necessarily a VR set, but definitely allows them to release another accessory to "dominate the gaming" without it being too expensive for the consumers (cause a kiect xbox one along with this new accessory is more expensive than an xbox one along with the new accessory but no kinect).
