Xbox One: Where is the Kinect We Were Promised?

GenGame "When I picked up my Xbox One on Nov. 22 I knew What I was getting myself into…at least I thought I did. Seeing as I pre-ordered the system in July (fairly shortly after Microsoft reversed its policies concerning DRM), you could probably say that I was hyped up for a new generation of consoles. In fact, I was even excited for the next iteration the Kinect – a feature heavily weaved into the infrastructure of Xbox One. Little did I know, Microsoft’s Kinect 2.0 would fail to deliver on almost every front regarding the immersive experience promised by the company throughout the course of the next-gen console’s marketing phase."

i got what i wanted, turning the console on from another room and getting a game ready while i prepare my food. being able to walk into the room and it signing me in. using the kinect to quickly switch between digital games. Having meaningful kinect functionality in every game. Also being able to play KI having the control reconfigured to your profile is amazing.

Hey its not for everyone. and that's OK.

Regarding Kinect 2 and its promised features and functionality, I say only this, "Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me".

When has Kinect ever delivered as promised.

"Where is the Kinect We Were Promised?" certainly applies to the Xbox 360, especially in regards to how it was supposed to appeal to the hardcore. That part is true.

But in regards to the X1? As an outsider looking in (I don't own X1 nor am I fond of Kinect) it seems like X1's Kinect has delivered on every one of Microsoft's promises. And this time around, they were certainly less hyperbolic with their promises.

this is one of those articles you could go with if you never tried it but if you actually used kinect 2.0 you are like "what?"

Pretty sure we had the same type of articles with the 360 a few months after Kinect came out

"Xbox 360: Where is the Kinect We Were Promised?"

Look at Natal, then skip forward a year when it was shown off as Kinect. Totally different
