Forums - Gaming Discussion - ***Xbox One: I like KINECT***

Before anything my stance on Xbox one and PS4 is somewhat of a Tie with Xbox One winning my favor mostly. (I'm an Xbox 360 person) I really like that Killer Instinct exclusive and have been hearing NOTHING but good things about it from people who have tried playing it. I played it back in the snes days so that game alone is a big deal for me. It also helps that teh fighting genre is one of my favorite genres. Anyhow...

I know people have a bad taste in their mouth about Kinet but personally I actually like it. And its mainly for the ability to say, "Xbox ON." Aside from gaming that feature alone (voice command) has to be one of the most luxerious things you can do with a device like Xbox. Also, its worth noting that I dig some of the games on Kinect too. I had one of the most fun times in a long time playing Kinect Adventures. Dance central as cool and fun too.

I'm don't think its flat out useless. For a lack of words.... I think its "Bad-ass." That I can wave my hands and voice command Xbox one. Its makes me feel like I'm living in the future to a certian extent. So, I don't think its a trerrible waste of money. I know this all subjective... some people regardless of any positive points just won't like Kinect and other like myself maybe see it the way I do and apprecaite the features Kinect brings by itself... and add on features to games.... and games that ONLY use Kinect.

I just had to say something because people keep complaining about it. Also, here's a fact for those of you who say nobody cares about Kinect. Kinect sold very well on the Xbox 360. It was clearly a commercial success. So, there are people who want it and like it and it doesn't make sense to say nobody wants it. I do.



All gaming systems, consoles/PC, have thier perks... why fight over preferences? I like Coke and you like Pepsi, that's it, let's not fight over which toy we like best cause that's what they are. Is someone's preference in a toy important or is the relationship between you and your neighbor more important? Answer is obvious, but THE most important thing is your relationship with God almighty. God Bless you in Jesus's name.

I can communicate without talking... I can send a loved one money without actually sending money... and I can commit theft without the product disappearing, the point of theft is the point of theft not one of it's possible symptoms which is the product dissappearing. The thief wants to gain something without paying for it, that's the point of theft, the thief doesn't have to care or anybody else has to care if the product dissappears. The product dissappearing is just a possible symptom of theft. Gifts are sacrfices, in order to give a gift, it has to be a genuine sacrfice/gift, meaning a copy of the game isn't still in your PC. Piracy is theft and/or being a culprit of theft.

Cool. Glad you like it.

EDIT: I'll expand. I'm glad to hear that you like the Kinect. I can promise you that when people say "no one wants kinect!" they are saying it in loose terms and don't actually mean to imply that there is literally no one who enjoys it.

The argument that there are people who like it does not translate into it being OK for Microsoft to shove it down everyone's throats regardless of how they feel about it. You want to play with your friends on Xbox Live? You want to play the new Halo? Well then, you're forced to have Kinect staring at you and listening to you 24/7, collecting your data*.

*Nothing is set in stone as of now (especially since Microsoft seems to be radically shifting their stance), so we'll see exactly what Kinect does when the Xbone launches.



I like it too! It is an amazing piece of technology. And I think like the mouse or keyboard, a mark by which which everything will be changed.

Voice navigation is so awesome. Especially when it searches and looks stuff up for you - yea not clicking through a virtual keyboard.

Note: Is there another site you go to that doesn't have all the troll problems this one does? I'm just so bored with them. They are so tedious to skip over.

Kinect passes the original Xbox in sales!

Xbox 360 passes Wii in the North America! Number One console 7th gen in the UK and North America!

I usually go to the Verge Forums. You get much wider range of replies due to audience being much more varied. Their site covers everything, not just gaming. You will see a thread go from Polygon go from Xbox One features in to iOS vs Android in to Windows 8 start menu arguments...

Thanks for the tip!  Will check them out.

I used to really like VGChartz, but the trolls man, the trolls.

I'm sorry man. But I don't like it. I don't like the voice command, I don't like the 24/7. I don't like it's in the basic packet. etc etc.

I would'v conisidered buying an xb1. But to be honest, I don't give two flying f**** about DRM and always on. It's the kinect that kills it for me

Cool story,bro.

I like kinect. Not as useful as the gamepad but a lot cooler and very advanced technology. I respect ms for inventing and perfecting something so imaginative. I bought kinect so i could buy steel battalion, but i had more fun just using the OS and ZUNE with voice and hand gestures. Of coarse in my head I was like in a scene from minority report.. but if someone saw through my window I probably looked a little funny.

I have had so much fun playing kinect party that i'm now a firm believer in Kinect. I'm starting to like getting up and standing instead of laying or sitting. Skyward Sword is so much more immersive when your body is active. Same with kinect.


Oh yeah, and we havent even seen what kinect 2 is capable of. I can't wait!

I like Kinect as well.
There are cool games out there and those are really fun when a couple of friends are with you.
I use the multimedia features quite frequently.

The sad part is that your whole post sounds like you have to apologize for it. And yeah, we are minority on VGC.
