Great 1 game, you talk about what they will do with kinect but we know what they will do with kinect, its not like kinect itself is new its been around for the 360 for years and all that came out of that is shovelware and dance central and the shovelware bombed harder then the shovelware on the wii which is why theres even less kinect games for the system. If they do get something that actually makes kinect worth buying then great but and I can't stress this enough... They shouldn't have launched the console and forced consumers to buy the thing with kinect if they didn't even bother to have a good game that actually makes kinect worth using. If they wanted to launch the console without it fine but there is NOTHING that justifies having the damn thing included in the box right now the only thing you have is voice controls that only work half the time and a few gimmicks here and there and of course the great kinect games like Just Dance and Fighters Within. Absolutely worth that extra 100$+ right?
You can defend Microsoft all you want but you can't honestly tell me that the choice wouldn't be better for everyone? Sure launch the thing at 500$ for those who want it but have a kinect less version for 400$ and give people the freaking option for it. We all know the reason they won't do that though, because Microsoft knows that people won't buy it separately and they desperately want to believe in the technology that they've spent millions on developing, they believe its the future even if they don't have a damn idea on how to make a game actually fun with the thing.

You can't really talk about the kinect 2.0 if you've never used it or owned one, because its fair superior the first iteration and is worth the extra $100.
Also kinect sports rivals comes out next week.
I don't know what's worse, company fanboys or kojima fanboys? One thing is for certain, they are most definitely the definition of a neckbeard.
I don't understand
The entire console has been designed around the kinect
PR spin which you bought...but somehow missed the fact the xbox one can function fine without it
many exclusives will probably use the kinect in some form aswell
this is speculation...how much is speculation worth these days? The FACT is Kinect is 0/10 in innovation and usefulness, it's never worked well, and until this day...they have failed to create a app/game that makes it a must have
They are trying to create a new console and not just give you more of the same
I just paid $500 for some "try"? Last time I checked you are supposed to release a product when it is done. When it has value to justify the price you are asking for it...MS just shoved it down our throats
But TC is right...they will never drop Kinect. It is the holy grail of advertising...a way to get 100% feedback from viewers...Google "NuAds", this is the true reason for kinects reason to exist...
it's not a gaming revolution...it's a advertising tool they horribly tried to convince us was new gaming innovation...
proof is in the fact that they are advancing NuAds faster than a game worth purchasing...smh
if you believe anything that comes out od MS' mouth these days you must be a 4th grader

They are trying to create a new console and not just give you more of the same, which is something a large portion of gamers complain about and then when you do get something different you still complain anyway.
While that's pretty cool I hate games that scare me so it would be useless to me. I encourage companies to try new things but the kinect is not something that has got my interest yet. If MS wants to keep dumping money into it I'm all for watching them try.
quincy2000a posted...I have no problem with Microsoft adding the Kinect.
Still putting hope on what MS says...
This is your freedom in a life of fallacy,

I've been saying this since launch.

Microsoft will never sell the Xbox One without Kinect!
I honestly don't see what all the fuss was about, about the Kinect. Seems to work just fine. My friends do the voice commands all the time, and I rarely hear them repeat themselves. I see a ton of potential with the Kinect + gaming...especially horror games. I don't know when it'll happen, but I think a horror game will eventually read your heartbeat, to do something in the game. I hope that happens lol. Why wouldn't it? Seems like the perfect thing to do in a horror game. Who knows. Maybe The Evil Within might do it.
The TC is right, but for the wrong reasons. Microsoft is interested in the advertising & DRM potential of Kinect. That's worth waaaay more money than gaming. MS is more likely to give away the Xbone for free than drop Kinect.
