MS is giving all early adopters the finger because only a few people (if any) will buy it. I mean MS had trouble selling it when was bundled with the system.

There trying to kill it. Also I'm an early adopter and I could care less if they killed off the Kinect, I only use it for the voice commands and those will always be there.

really your doing it wrong then... you should try using it in games as well, really makes BF4 quite better, calling out field orders and contextual leaning and head tracking while in vehicles.

Because no one will buy it. Therefore, there will be no economic reason to put it into games because it will only affect a niche audience.

Heck, the Playroom for the PS4 is a better reason ro buy the PS4 camera (it is completely free).

lol well dude there is only one kinect game well 2 if you count dance central but I don't think that's out yet that even use the damn thing, the kinect is a better piece of hardware then the PS Camera to begin with. I'd say some people will buy it, people bought the original kinect it is was $150 it it launched as a stand alone unit. as of right now how it's used it pretty cool but most people don't even know that most games can even use it, like BF4.
