In less than a year, Kinect really is dead

#1Shovel_BreakPosted 8/7/2014 6:56:59 AM
I see a bunch of bundles and SKUs for the Xbox One coming, and not one of them has Kinect when we are heading into the holiday sales period. It's hard to believe that such a huge component of Microsoft's vision for the Xbox One was just buried half-way into 2014.

I honestly think that if Kinect was like the PS4's Eye Camera, it would have had some success. But they made Xbox One's Kinect far too expensive when hardly any game supported it's motion controls and was primarily pushed for voice commands. Something a much cheaper sensor bar is more than capable of doing

And nothing of value was lost. TO be honest that Ps4 camera is even more ridiculous to me.

Because if it turns out to be a huge waste of money, it could scare them off from innovating or even making a console after the One.

Kinect is great for the X1 to navigate menus and things like that but, it's a huge flop on the gaming side of things.

Most idiotic post of the day goes to this guy. Granted, it's still early.
1.good thing you didn't group the entire kinect population into what YOU think about the device.
2.people don't say "owned," anymore. Get with the times.

I use my kinect every time I use my xbox. It's great to be able to use voice to control all of my aps.
