does Microsoft feel sad about Kinect?

They regret not listening to people like me who said Kinect should be sold separately from the start. Oh well, MS is paying the price for that now, and I won in the end.

Yes. It's a revenue generator for them.

I hope so. Don't get me wrong, the kinect does make the OS much better than the 360, but the only thing gamers care about is performance. I do not think the kinect is worth the power it takes away from the system.

I always felt the kinect's success on 360 was a fluke, and they wanted lightning to strike twice. I hope a lot of people got fired for putting the kinect as a priority. It has done nothing to help out with games, and I just don't see how developers are going to make it enhance my gaming. I don't want to shout stuff like in Ryse, "Archers, fire!" while there are people in my house, that is stupid and really does nothing to enhance the gameplay.

What it does do is help the interface of the console. It is cool going to netflix just on a verbal command, but gaming should come first on a console. Without the kinect, I imagine the xbone interface will be weird.

Hardware is not a revenue generator in the video game industry. MS has lost money in Kinect's development and implementation.

I have him blocked, I can not believe laylow12 is still on the xbox one boards.

He and I were friends are one point. I saw him here acting like a straight up ass (that has not stopped, he is probably the worst here).

So I tell him off and take him off my friends list. He doesn't game, he just comes on here to troll because.. well, who the hell knows.

He has been here since last year though. Too bad people aren't as interested in getting a life as they are arguing about consoles they can't afford.
