If so, for what? I personally dont use it because I've never been fond of having a camera being pointed at me. Plus you never know what could truly be going on behind that camera, even when its supposedly "off".

I use it to turn my Xbox on or off. I don't use it for anything else.

Not everyone with a difference of opinion or that has criticisms is a troll.

I use it to turn Xbox on/off, change the channels, say orders in Ryse and fling zombies off me in DR3. It's not an essential piece of equipment by any means, but I did set it up and it does work well.

For everything. I don't pick up the controller until I say "Xbox play 'x'". Other than that I'm just using Kinect to control things. I can't imagine using the controller to navigate the system, it has to be slower by orders of magnitude.
Let's all try to be nice.

Just to turn my system on and off, or while i pause Amazon Instant video. I sometimes use it in Dead Rising to stun the bosses. Oh and i use it for chat since MS gave me a busted headset. It works pretty well for all of these, and my friend said he had no idea i was using kinect to chat when we played.

Other than that not so much. I would have probably gotten a kinectless model if they had one but kinect is kind of neat packed in. I do hope developers support it and try to do cool things with it since its with all XB1's

I use it often. It's a fast and easy way to get around.
