Kinect truly dead like fried chicken now. So much for ms going "all in". Come to the future! Major Nelson once said.

The thing they advertised HEAVILY as the main attraction for the Xbox One is being put to rest. Very sad indeed.

lmao

The best thing about the Kinect that I will really miss is the ability to scan any QR codes for DLC that came with a game. Just hold up the card for a second and it was done. I really hate typing in those codes.


can't you use the app to scan the codes?

Good riddance, probably the smartest thing MS has done this generation.

some bought for games, others for added functionality, most got it bundled with their systems


I refused to buy until they removed the kinect. So useless.

Me too!

I bought an X and I miss having my Kinect commands all the dang time. I keep thinking I'll get over it but changing channels, pausing Netflix, and shutting down while my hands are covered in pizza sauce is something I dearly miss.

I just don't want to pay 80 freaking dollars for the adapter.

Yeah, that was a nice little feature that really didn't get much use out of from me.


I bought a Kinect adapter for my One X, when they announced the kinect was being discontinued, and was disappointed to realize after the fact that the QR scanner no longer works.

I'm very much debating on simply unhooking my Kinect, because at this point it's more or less become an inconvenience by taking up a USB slot, just for face recognition when signing in and for recording clips. It seems using the home/guide button has improved than the way it originally was.

Just seems like MS keeps reducing functionality for it, to the point where it's become almost useless.
