"Correct. Xbox One is Kinect." Microsoft VP
Really...seems this Day One Edition purchaser was "Madoff-ed by Microsoft."

well duh troll they used the original kinect for this exact same stuff, seems like a no brainer they'd use kinect 2.0 for the same thing.

I wanted to stop reading after seeing it only costs $75 to manufacture.

I sit four feet from a 48 inch 1080 p tv.


And I sit about 5-6 feet away from my 60". I'm not going to let anyone dictate what distance I sit in front of my TV as some people here do, I'm going to sit where I feel best.

I purchased all three consoles.

I'm getting more familiar with the PS4 controller as time goes on but I wish I could only use one controller style with all three. But that's not going to happen. On my Wii U, I even purchased a 360 styled controller.

My personal preference is graphics over controller because I don't hate the PS4 controller, I just find it a bit more challenging.

I think when a lot of people see kinect they think of the how garbage the first one was, get a feeling a lot haven't even used kinect 2.0 and personally I think a lot better. Not really a fan of these kinect only games though but some of the features are nice.

that's about the gist of it. some of the kinect games are fun though like kinect sports and things like that, the first party ones are the best ones. but they are best played at like parties and things like that.
