Lol no reason at all man, it's a good device but is quite useless for $100 Gimmick is all it is
It all made sense when I saw the website name.
@heavy...you expect them to say the ps4 camera instead?
People actually want the Kinect? Really? http://31.media.tumblr.com/... It's how much? http://www.reactiongifs.com... So aside from games like Just Dance and Xbox Fitness, Microsoft wants people to spend $129 to turn on the Xbox One console with Voice Commands? https://img.pandawhale.com/...
Let's see you Twitch stream with a video feed of yourself without Kinect. Yes the voice commands are a reason why mate is looking for the Xbox One kinect bundle. It's not so hard to believe once, you know, you've actually used the thing.
The kinect is a fantastic piece of hardware that unfortunately gets bashed by too many people who have never used it.
All the Kinect does is sign me in when I turn on my Xbox. I hope Microsoft adds English options for all regions so we can use the voice commands which are great by the way.
It's definitely made a difference for me in navigating with voice, xbox record that, self sign in and Xbox On but has it made £129.99 worth of difference? Not yet.
That's what I'm trying to say voice commands doesn't even work in Sweden unless you change the region.
Doesn't it have auto sign in? The PS4 you can set your primary account and it just signs in every time you turn it on.
You can auto sign-in to an account every time but I have it set to log in with bio-metric data from the Kinect wich is good if you have multiple accounts.
1. no 2. no 3. no! 4. hell no 5. just no
Not very convincing, 3 of the 5 reasons are different dance games. No mention of kinect sports? Thats all I use my Kinect for.
But its incompatible with my ps4 :(..
Sure if you're into that kind of games. If you just want the voice control you might as well just buy a really nice headset and a new game for the same if not even lower price.
One reason why it shouldn't: 1. It's Kinect
5 bad reasons. Not convinced at all.
If you're into party and multiple workout "games" maybe.
The fact that Kinects has been unbundled with the Xbox1 has seriously hampered its adoption rate, thereby making it less likely that developers are going to use its capabilities to its fullest extent. Sure people will buy it, but I don't think developers will take advantage of its capability anywhere near what they would have by it being included with the Xbox1. This is an example of one of the tough choices Microsoft has had to make to stay in the race, and truthfully I commend them because they have given gamers a choice and at the same time taken a lose.
1- Yes= kids 2= Yes = kids 3 =Yes =Grown-ups having fun 4= Yes = hate going to the Gym , enjoy exercising at home. 5= Yes = cause it convenient
There's just not enough support happening for the Kinect. MS went from "We are defiantly going to support the Kinect!" to "Well, UbiSoft is making a work out game..." Maybe if they had really put all their weight into it and laid of the weird, sketchy stuff like scanning your room for specialized product ads and data collection it could have been different, but they didn't. The device is all but dead at this point and it's a shame, it could have been something special.
No we begged for this thing to be removed in the first place.
For $329 you could get the Kinect Xbox One plus 3 free games. Even if Kinect has little game support, the fact it is essentially free and is great for media, TV, and navigation makes getting it with the Xbox One a no brainer.
i think i have a better reason its to spy on santa if he's really kissing my mom or dad
shut up, microsoft.
I love the voice commands and turn on and off all entertainment, great for the kids and dance games. love the fitness options, for me its something I would of missed if i didn't get it, but i can understand that it might not be fore everyone..... maybe next xbox they can include the microphone and purchase the kinect camera separate..
3/5 are dance games, hardly compelling reasons to buy an Xbox One seeing how the large majority of gamers have very little interest in dancing.
Except for the fitness title those are all incredibly weak reasons to buy a Kinect. The fail train continues hurtling down the track for this peripheral. I would love for Kinect to be a success as it shows so much promise, but either the technology simply cannot support the grand ideas of the creators or software developers don't have the imagination necessary to make it a success.
Welcome to the 21st Century, a time when console manufacturers need not advertise their own Products.
Well I got about 20 reasons it shouldn't be.
I sure like mine , cant imagine being without it....
That's a rather weak imagination you've got there.
Stop trying to make Kinect happen, it's not going to happen.
Tired of these advertisement articles. Its la bit of an insult to your intelligence. Why not do ads that dont pretend to be intellectual thought/opinions?
