Are we forgetting that?
They want to up the power, but have 2% to "discuss with developers" about using?

It's been stated that the reservation with Kinect and the system is 10%, not 2%.

Wouldn't freeing up that power mean rendering everyone's kinect useless, or at least lose a lot of functionality?

Potentially. If a game required that additional power, the game might force the Kinect to shutoff if it recognizes it's enabled and plugged in.

Originally, yes.. it had 10% reserved for the Kinect. Then, a few months ago they released 8% of the original 10%, leaving only 2% remaining for kinect voice commands. They are now talking about releasing the last 2%.

And I'm SMH at the idiocy of this thread. To answer your question - no, they have no yet given back the 8 percent to developers. They mentioned they were looking into it, but still haven't done it. Respawn has talked about releasing a performance patch when it does finally happen.
