I never had a Kinnect for the 360 and wasn’t particularly excited when I heard about the revisions for the Xbox One.
Having said that I don’t regret paying extra for it the box, it’s really great for logging me in and voice navigation, I’ll be happy if that’s all I get from it but I suspect it will be used properly by someone soon. I haven’t tried it with Skype yet but I hear it works well, I’m really hoping Google make a Hangouts app for it. I think that would be amazing.
Maybe it can’t track accurately enough to be the sole input or maybe we need to give developers more time.
Condemning the technology at this stage based on one game seems like a mistake to me.
This generation will be the generation of console updates. Who knows what the Kinnect will be able to do in 12 months.
