A few commands that don't register also I wonder..  Kang-a-roo!
No doubt. Smiley  The original Kinect never lived up to expectations, but I was surprised to see Kinect 2 still being so unreliable.

It's also surprising Microsoft pushed it so hard, building the whole XBox One around it when even they don't seem to have any good gaming uses for it.

Yeah the hacks and innovative uses I've seen done with it on Youtube are by far the best thing about it.  Just a shame Microsoft pushed it as a gaming device and then seemed unable to write any games to justify it.

The Kinect style device wont die, it's just better suited to other uses.

Xbox UK marketing boss Harvey Eagle told CVG that, while he doesn't personally see a meaningful graphical difference between PS4 games and their Xbox One equivalents...

"If you put third-party games side-by-side that are running at slightly different resolutions or frame rates, then unless you are using a screen that's more than 60 inches big, I defy you to really see the difference. I personally struggle to see the difference."

Is he really claiming you can't tell resolution or framerate differences unless you have a 60" screen?

What is this BS?

Oh he's head of Marketing.  Tongue

Another official price cut for the One here in the UK.  It doesn't seem very long since the last one.

Aggressively going after Sony in one of the few territories where the One still has a foothold?

Anyway, now 299.99
