MS should have release more stuffs for Kinect. Only bundling and lack of software can't convince user to buy it.

Kinect killed Xbox One, that is how I will judge it.

Well that and the weaker hardware.. Terrible reveal... The lies...the truth...the quotes like "just deal with it".. The DRM..the no trade in games...the720p,900p,792p vs 1080p...the lack of game releases... Lack of New ip's..bad indie policies
I understand that they have 180ed some of these things...but they happened and they hurt the system too.

I was one of the Kinect "nay-sayers" before buying my Xbox One. I was making my judgments purely off of Kinect Xbox 360 (unfair judgment).

I was immediately impressed with Kinect 2.0 and now I am sad that it will, most likely, not be supported in the future.

i am enjoying my xbox one and kinect alot more than i thought i would using voice commands to do certain task just feels great for example the " xbox record that" rather than having to press buttons just feels natural. i really hope ms and developers keeps supporting it and not give up on it so easily.

It isn't a gaming device. That is the issue. It isn't being unfairly judged. It doesn't suit the gaming enviroment. The kinect is an expensive way to "improve" UI which is why it didn't catch on (after the initial buzz years ago). Improving UI needs to be cheaply done and not with an expensive add on. That and improving the gaming use side in a meaningful way (which is impossible due to the hardware limitations) would have made the kinect 2 popular
