Jason Stettner of Gamerheadquarters writes; "With the production of the Xbox One Kinect ceasing I thought it would be interesting to go over the details that led to its eventual demise."
Whoever thought making motion control devices (including PS Move/Navigator at the time) right at the end of the motion fad definitely lost a job. It was a disaster for everyone involved, including Wii sales 2010 and on.
Well, Kinect was the best selling gaming accessory of all time
Playing shooters with MOVE+Nav is awesome though. I remember using it with KZ3, SOCOM4 and Resistance 3, man...feels so natural and accurate. personally I like it way more than using kb+m which I suck at! I was kinda disappointed that Sony didn't let this control method to stay especially with the better PS Eye camera on the PS4. I hope it will make a comeback seeing they are pushing PSVR and stuff. oh and RIP Kinect
Always thought kinect on 360 was a work in progress with some games being very good (Dance Central). Sadly the X1 iteration was terrible with not even "Xbox on/off" working more than 3 attempts in 10. Never missed it when moving onto S.
I still use all the time, with my D1 Xbone. "Xbox On" and "Xbox Pause/Play" for YouTube Netflix. Also "Xbox go to TV" for Chromecast. Motion was always a joke though
