Nothing better with Kinect, say scientists

A team of scientists at Cambridge University, England, have concluded that absolutely nothing can be improved, bettered or enhanced through the use of Microsoft’s popular motion sensing input device.

Since launching in 2010, numerous Xbox 360 games have claimed to be better with Kinect. However, scientists involved in the 3-year research project have stated that, despite extensive testing, they could find no evidence to suggest that Kinect was capable of benefiting anything.

What a total waste of research money!

with all the money the wasted on this plus the 500$ million ads
they should have made new ips and more exclusives for xbox360 with all that money

really a waste of time and money
and they still never come close to milo demo

I guess now we know what $500 million can buy you! The silence of anyone who knew the results of this study before it was even conducted! smdh.

So what does this say for kinect 2? I guess now I'm starting to understand why it will be required.

Well microsoft did show smoke & mirror demos with milo & ever since that its been years now & nothing even close to that demo has been created with kinect.

Is this a late April Fools joke? I thought everyone knew this.

The joke wasn't late,, it was just laggy.

Kinects success was caused by the causal market and Microsofts advertisement...I think Kinect 2 won't be as successful as MS thinks it will be because ppl who got Kinect for the 360 had their run just as most of the causal WII buyers won't buy a WII U. It's still early to judge but time will tell I guess.
