Nintendo dropped motion controls last gen with the Wii U and paid dearly for it. A clear sign that the market continued to want motion controls, but Nintendo deliberately chose to backstab the market. Further evidence for the desire for motion controls has been the continued presence of Just Dance on the Wii which still got the yearly release in late 2019. This gen Nintendo reinstated motion controls as the standard with Switch, so they are here to stay, after all.

The last gen consoles of Sony and Microsoft (PS4 and Xbox One) tried to built on Move and Kinect, respectively. Sony's foray into VR has been commercially underwhelming, so it's no surprise that VR had no presence in the PS5 event earlier this month. Microsoft's Kinect is dead; which was inevitable, because unlike the Wii, it was a fad. Shipment progression of Kinect was 8m in 2010 (two months of availability), 10m in 2011, 4m in 2012, undisclosed in 2013. It was a thing for about one year, unlike the Wii which exceeded 10m units for five straight years; five years is the length of a generation.
