Besides the OS operations, are there any Kinect games that will utilize this locked 10%?

It definitely sucks for people who didn't even want the Kinect in the first place to find out that it costs the XboxOne more graphical resources, but this actually gives some small sliver of credibility to the idea that Microsoft may one day offer a Kinect-less unit for sale. The resources aren't permanently allocated for Kinect, just for the time being. This gives MS a little wiggle-room to 180 if post-launch sales aren't cutting it.

As for future PS4 buyers, yeah, this Kinect business sucks for them too.

Well, it does make sense to sacrifice 10% performance if they really want to push their camera.

But now that the camera is optional, sacrificing performance does not make any sense.

All made by the regular "posters".
I will try and see it from your point of view, but I doubt we'll be able to fit both our heads up there.

Why are you so bitter all the time? I think you should seek help buddy.
Not upset at all, just annoyed that there's absolutely no point in people like you to be on these boards other than to troll your little hearts out. - triple s
