With the Xbox One S, it’s Clear that Microsoft has Lost Faith in Kinect


At E3, Microsoft revealed a new member of the Xbox One Family, Xbox One S. Xbox One S is slimmer and sleeker than the current model, and it will be capable of watching Blu-ray movies and streaming video in stunning 4K Ultra HD video.

Xbox One S has loads of new characteristics, but there is something which it will not have: a Kinect port.Xbox-One-SThis shows that Microsoft has lost faith in Kinect and justifiably so, since Microsoft failed to render a compelling Kinect experience. Kinect clearly had so much potential, but that potential has hit a brick wall.

When Xbox One was first released Kinect was almost a mandatory peripheral, but it soon became an optional device. After taking in everything in E3,  I think the Xbox One S will have a brilliant future, but it’s clear that Kinect’s future is dark and it will not improve unless Microsoft starts making games which will provide a compelling gaming experience using the platform. You can, however,  still use the Kinect with an adapter on the Xbox One S.
