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.


I seriously doubt MS will allow developers to shut the kinect off if they like. You wouldnt be able to do any of the voice commands for recording and navigating menu's, which was one of the consoles selling points. I honestly think its RIP kinect now anyway, this was the last nail in the coffin. Nobody in their right mind is going to buy a stand alone kinect for over $100, it's got a bad rep as it is already, never mind adding overpriced to the long list of negatives. Kinect is done.

lol, kinect functionality.

If MS is REALLY smart, they'll come out with an update that will disable the POS completely.

MS lies so much people don't even pay attention anymore


like how Sony lied about the reason for the light on the controller?
Or lied about the psn hack
Or lied about the rootkits
Or lied about extent of dre problems
or lied about resolution of killzone
Or lied about Killzone 2 graphics presentation at e3
Or lied about how powerful the ps1,ps2 and ps3 were
Or lied about the resolution of Watchdogs.

get a reality check. All companies lie and Sony is not an exception to that. They are in fact really good at it.

I'm actually surprised it took 2 pages before Sony was brought up. Stay classy

If you change your Gamefaqs view to 50 replies a page, you'll always get some good action on the first page.

Funny thing is the Xbox One is not the weaker console.

The weaker console is the Xbox One with Kinect ;)

Porunga, if you look at the links, especially the last one, this seems to be describing what is happening right now. The links are saying that 8% of the GPU is used by Kinect processing for image, and that a patch could give this back to the developers. If this already had happened, we would have seen games disabling Kinect while they are running which has not happened yet.

But now with Kinect being optional, this is a likely possibility. Especially with Phil Spencer recently saying he wanted to look into this.

So no, I don't believe the allocation for Kinect has been given away yet. It is still taking 10% of the reserve.

I don't see them changing this just because its optional.
