Chime in: What do you think of Microsoft's decision to kill Kinect?


Kinect is dead, sadly, ending an era of Xbox motion and voice control.

While existing Kinect sensors will obviously continue to work, eventually the functionality could hit end of life for Xbox consoles, as support from developers becomes non-existent.

Many of us imagined a future where Kinect, powered by Cortana, would take Xbox from being a simple games console to a point where it was the centerpiece for your entire connected life, powering smart home devices, media center, and more. Without a microphone array attached to your console, voice commands on the Xbox are painful to use, and it seems like Microsoft agrees, considering Cortana has barely been updated for months.
