Hands-on Impressions of the Kinect 2.0 and Its Features

Microsoft’s Kinect motion-control device was the butt of many jokes during its last-gen run, not too unlike Sony’s Move controller. Many gamers dismissed the technology as a gimmick, and most game developers never figured out the perfect way to use the Kinect to enhance their game’s gameplay. With that being said Microsoft has believed in the device since its release, and continues to push its benefits on gamers whether they like it or not. Microsoft is so in love with the Kinect that they decided to make it a mandatory pack-in item with the Xbox One, which released on November 22, 2013.

I dont have a xbox one yet but the kinect for the 360 works great with the last mass effect. The ley to kinect is setting it up correctly you may have to do this more then once and If you remove it from the system its best to set it up again. I can almost control the voice command with a whisper, when theres more noise in the room you do have to speak alittle louder. If 2.0 is better then it has my vote.

Its very functional...............after a 4 week course on the subject of "Kinect 2.0:how it works and how you need to change to make it happy" , along with refresher courses over the course of the consoles life a mere price of only $49.99 a month. /jk

I all honesty i havent met one person that i have talked to about the xbone that have said the kinect works properly, they mostly just dont use it at all.

Well you have idiots or stupid friends! Pick one

Sitdown1548d ago

That's probably because you don't meet a lot of people in general....

Bigpappy1548d ago

Obviously, that cam on the ps4 is not kinect

lawgone1548d ago

Sure MrMagoo, I bet you've talked to lots of xbox one owners since it came out 3 days ago. And they have told you, I'm those 3 days, they mostly don't use it. Uh huh. Nice try.

Here is your friend's problem, they're not using THIS Kinect.

Will Kinect 2.0 EVER be good as the first Kinect? :(

The kinect 2.0 ruined my life! Everytime I turn on my xbox one to play my sexified kinect 2.0 my nipples become irrationally pointy in anticipation, causing my t shirts to obtain what I call nipple holes. These nipple holes leave my shirts practically unusable. Since I got the kinect i have had to replace my whole wardrobe and have been forced to use pylons to cover my nipples. Now I am broke and unable to use my kinect. Thanks a lot Microsoft.

Honestly, I didn't like the original Kinect. It seemed like something that was mostly for kids. But I'm really liking the Kinect on the Xbox One. It's worked really well so far. Sure, there is a little learning curve but it's not bad. The major stuff is intuitive and the rest you can learn later if you want to use it.
