Wouldn't that kinda, you know......alienate the millions of people who bought the older one ?

B-b-bu-but... kinect was teh future

A new yearly iteration of Kinect just like the iPad/iPhone?

I don't think me meant anytime soon. The "new generation" of Kinect would probably come out (if ever) sometime during the "next generation" of consoles.

I don't know about other companies but MS's updates work miracles, the kind that flows through the internet and you don't have to install.

firmware for the kinect unit itself to improve its abilities. Middleware on the 360 to make it work better at processing what the kinect sees. Software in the games to tie the two together and make the games worth playing.

All of which can be achieved in THIS generation of kinect.

Kinect was a mistake in 2 ways,

Firstly it should have been bundled as standard with the xbox 3 (or 720 as some like to call it). That way everyone would have it and Devs be more likely to support it.

Secondly, Kinect did not really release with any hardcore games, like some kind of shooter with decent graphics or some kind of RPG.

having said that I do like Kinect, it's impressive tech and I've had a ton of fun with Dance Central, but it's not a game for everyone, that's for sure.

Im laughin so hard at the people trying too hard. Every piece of electronic does this. Take for example the first comment in this article. I guess the iphone 5 alienates the iphone 4 users too. Ridiculous lol.

But doesnt this happen with every electronic made.?

SixZeroFour2787d ago

exactly...but of course, its by MS so they HAVE to be the only ones doing this /s

easy example is tv's: sd, hd, 3dtv...that whole "alienating" argument could have been said prior to any of those tv's coming out...but they dont because its progress, just like whats happening with kinect (which i always assumed was going to happen anyways)...there are plenty of places to improve upon with the kinect

NOW if they released this new gen of kinects anytime soon, THEN i would go along with the masses and saying that MS is alienating the ppl that already bought one, but this is a separate issue than just advancing on the current kinect

MS doesn't care. Remember Kin? Dead 2 months after it released lol. Funny because I remember them making such a big deal over it and all the ad campaigns like it was going to be the next big thing and than boom it was just gone overnight.

@Fallouts below ever heard of market research?

Fallouts2787d ago (Edited 2787d ago )

are you that stupid? you really think ms wanted kin to fail cause they didnt care. it simply didnt sel, had no demand. would your dumb ass of had kept making it?


so market research means you will have a guranteed success now huh. fdunny how clowns on n4g think they know it all from their basement..

No shit,Kinect 2.0 will be released sometime in the future

This is like saying that new GPU will be released in

Kran2787d ago

Cliff says a lot of things that tend to be Bulls**t.

Why should we believe him here?

plb2787d ago

Kinect 2 will be what kinect 1 should have been and how it was originally designed with dedicated chip, ram etc.

baodeus2787d ago (Edited 2787d ago ) does have dedicated chip and remember they say it is upgradable via software? Where the hell u get your fact from plb?

dalibor2787d ago

Well it happened to the eyetoy, now there is the PS eye. I could see Kinect, Move and the Nintendo motion plus getting upgraded in the future if either of the companies deemed to do so. How well will they turn out if indeed they got released? Who knows.
