I'll agree that not actually touching something makes it weird. That's why I'd still like to see genre-specific input devices that the Kinect is simply supporting. Of course, this fragments the audience, too.

I just really don't like the fact they're making consumers pay for and use the Kinect, even if they don't want to. All in all, Microsoft's attitude about the Xbox One has been very childish. A quote like, "Fortunately we have a product for people who aren’t able to get some form of connectivity. It’s called Xbox 360," really turned me off.

I'm just glad having no backwards compatibility has freed me up to persue other options.

Good point. Who wants to imitate a big horned sheep just to get their game console to load a game. wink

I wasn't a fan of motion gaming at all and the Kinect didn't appeal to me with the Xbox 360. But what MS is doing with the advancements in the tech and integration where it is acting just as an accent or extension to the controller is the way to go. Sure there will be a few Kinect eccentric games. I just won't buy those. Xbox still develops towards the hardcore gamers. The Xbox One is also going to be a superior multi-media machine and the ability to control everything through voice commands is an interesting concept.
