    New Controller needed, after removal of Kinect


    I am not sure if anyone else noticed a small problem with the Kinect being optional now. The Kinect used to be able to tell who was sitting where and make split screen play really easy.

    Now that Kinect is optional, all the controllers have no indication of player 1 and player 2 and so on.

    Xbox 360 had this feature, and it was great.

    Hell even Sony's lightbar isn't perfect, because the color to player position isn't clear.

    For games like Killer Instinct this is more than a minor annoyance when you are hosting a tournament.

    Please Xbox bring back the Xbox 360 controller lights, or a way of telling who is what player.

    :)

    Recently purchased X1 and have a question about headsets.

    No, the new controller removes the need for any adapter that's it's purpose.

    New Experience - Gestures removed...... erm..... why????

    I have same feeling.

    It is very stupid to remove the kinect gestures!

    When I play kinect game , the wireless controller already sleeping, I need to waste some times to switch it on without kinect gestures .

    What happened to full kinect calibration/setup

    Yeah, gestures have been removed, but they're still coming out with new content for Xbox Fitness which to use properly needs the Kinect. If they were going to remove the whole Kinect camera setup, then that option should be removed from the Kinect settings.
    They have two "buttons" which do the same thing right now in Kinect setup. To me that seems like a bug, not an actual removal of a feature.

    Dear Microsoft........... You are getting Closer.

    [quote user="f00xm4n"]

    I was under the impression from these forums that the kinect contained the wireless wifi direct and IR receivers for the xbox controller, so without a complete redesign of the hardware or optional reciever option the kinect would not be removed. I understand
    that people want a choice to not have the kinect but nobody is complaining that it comes with a controller and a HDMI cable without the choice not to have these. If the kinect is truly part of the system and essential for the controller to work, much like
    the wii bar is, I don't see the issue as you can turn off the camera and mic.

    MS need to clarify a lot, there will be no Xbox One in this living room unless kinect can be removed, if what you say is correct and it's need for the controller and vice versa that brings many more problems if either one or both break.

    Question: Will the Xbox One have any 3D video games made for it?

    You dont need 3D, Kinect, Kinect Glasses, Motion/voice controls to be immersed.

    -

    In reality those all remove the immersion.

    -

    Think of the the game you have been personally most immersed in..... see it uses none of that.
