Many video game players have complained about the Xbox One's Kinect. The motion-capture device reportedly costs as much as the actual console. The NSA may use the Kinect to monitor the homes of people around the world. The Xbox One is bundled with the device, so fans don't have a choice concerning the use of Kinect. If you want the new Xbox, you need to purchase Kinect as well.
Naturally, this may alienate some consumers. I know many people who love the 360, but hate Kinect. If a person doesn't want to use motion controls, why should they have to spend the extra money for the device? Perhaps because Kinect is a vital part of the Xbox One.
"The goal with having a Kinect ship with every Xbox is to guarantee to game developers if they implement Kinect features into their games, everyone who has an Xbox will be able to experience it. I often see people dismiss the Kinect instantly because they haven't seen it work like I have. It is an integral part of the Xbox One experience. The number of features on the Xbox One that uses the Kinect is almost too many to count. I can't imagine using the console without it." --Anonymous Xbox One Developer
The developers of Xbox One believe in what they are working on. Do you? Is Kinect cool or dumb? Sound off in the comments.
