    What can Xbox Fans do to make Microsoft/Xbox restart support for Kinect 2.0 usage in games...


    What will it take for Microsoft's Xbox arm to fully support Kinect 2.0 on Xbox Series X? Would a Kickstarter Campaign, Digital Petition, or the Xbox Insider Feedback get this
    question answered? The company has already stated that "[the eighth generation peripherals] will indeed work on Xbox Series X". That shows that one would be able to use the kinect adapter and plug in a Kinect 2.0. I believe, however, that Xbox is missing
    a huge chunk of their fanbase's voice in their quest to redeem the great Green name of Xbox.

    Our voices are being drowned out by the negativity that people often show while socializing online. There are MANY people (like myself) who purchased a Launch Xbox One with the Kinect 2.0 sensor. The Xbox One was clearly underpowered
    when released and I feel that it was ultimately held back by the hardware it was attached to.

    There were/are those of us who actually wanted the Xbox One to be all digital. To have our purchases tied to our gamertags/Microsoft Accounts. To own licenses vs. plastic discs.
    These days connecting to the internet once every week, to confirm you own the game, isn't even an afterthought in 2020. What most people do not realize is that Microsoft planned on offering their customers:

    1.) The ability to sell/gift/give licenses to other Xbox Live users,

    2.) Offer the current Smart Delivery service and ensure that the licenses you purchased would be backwards and forward compatible.

    3.) Create Kinect 2.0 along with other Mixed Reality devices and completely reinvent home console gaming.

    but negative people killed the Innovative Console dreamscape.

    Please Microsoft, we're begging to be heard!

    The Kinect SDK on Windows 10 shows that only the surface was truly touched when it comes to getting usage out of the Kinect 2.0 Sensor. You can find further evidence when you look into the fact that Microsoft removed voice commands from the Xbox One and
    it made the UI faster. The device could not handle the pure potential of the Kinect 2.0 Sensor. Kinect 2.0 paired with my mid-range gaming PC allows me to walk in the room and instantly be allowed access into my device via Windows Hello. Xbox One games like
    Forza Motorsport 5 allowed for Head tracking. Many Kinect 2.0 games were dialed back because the Xbox One was so underpowered. The Xbox Series X, with it's High-end Gaming PC Graphics, could really allow developers to harness the capabilities of this device.

    So I restate my question: If I wanted to build a community of Xbox fans that also use and/or want to use the Kinect 2.0 Sensor on their Xbox Series X, what would I need to do, or where would I start?

    :)

    That's a really good point, I would think that numerous feedback on the same topic will definitely earn the attention of the devs. If you want to start somewhere, I would try to get this idea spread out as much as possible to get as many people with you.
    Another Idea as stated before is to get alot of people to send Xbox Insider feedback because since Insider is just previews and tests of future updates Im sure if enough people were to get into the idea, they would consider interpreting it into live servers.

    I assume that they were losing lots of money there so that's why they discontinued it but they may have something else in store for the Xbox when it comes to a Kinect like thing when the new Xbox x series comes out

    We have tried it though, on the Xbox 360... Microsoft say that the Kinect 2.0 is more advanced, but what more can it really do that the first Kinect could not do? The Kinect 2.0 does exactly what the first Kinect did, but in a more advanced way. More advanced,
    but still the same thing.

    .

    See the first Kinect as a prototype, we tried it and it failed. Even if you polish a poo, it is still a poo... That is what the Kinect 2.0 is, a polished poo.

    To your Whats wrong with just "unplugging it" I ask what is wrong with making the Kinect 2.0 a secondary option,Whats wrong with giving the customer a choice of deciding to have or not have the Kinect 2.0.

    -

    Making the Kinect 2.0 a secondary option and not a mandatory one would be better for everyone,it would mean those that are happy with the Kinect can have it and those with concerns about the Kinect 2.0 can play online or offline without it and not have any
    problems.

    -

    and I suppose there is nothing wrong with unplugging it but all that does is cause an inconvience to those who still wish to play online and to add to that asking a question like that is on par with Don Mattrick's anwser to consumers when the 24hr check-in
    was around "well if you don't have the internet or the internet is not very good just stick with the xbox 360" that is in a polite way saying well if you can't keep up with the our tech advancements [Mod Removed] and whine some where else,
    What he said in his interview was not the right way to appeal to xbox's fan's that are upset to Microsofts annoucements.

    Make Kinect Optional, Lower the Price on Consoles that don't come with Kinect!

    I think it would be a bad idea if Microsoft remove the Kinect 2.0 on Xbox One.

    The problem of price of the Xbox One regarding the PS4 has very little to do with the Kinnect, and has a lot to do with the fact that Microsoft doesn't want to subsidize the price of the Xbox One equal to Sony subsidizes the price of the PS4.

    Microsoft needs to understand that she doesn't need to profit from the Xbox One, the Xbox One should be seen as a Trojan horse for Microsoft profit from Xbox Live subscriptions and sales of digital games.

    The Kinect is very important to the philosophy of the Xbox One, which is the philosophy of being a multimedia device. The lack of support from third party to Kinect on the Xbox 360 occurred precisely because the Kinect was sold as an optional peripheral,
    which resulted in a consumer market segmentation. If the consumer market is segmented, so the third party support producing what is traditional, for fear of unleashing new.

    Now, as the Kinect 2.0 is part of the essence of the Xbox One, no more banal reasons for which the third party producers do not create games that use the capabilities of Kinect 2.0 satisfactorily. Even Microsoft itself released games best seller for the
    Kinect 2.0. Kinect Rivals Sport will be the first bestseller, and surely after it will come a mountain of games that used very satisfactory Kinect. 2.0, as for example D4. When this occurs will be evident that the PS4 will offer an incomplete game experience
    compared to the Xbox One offers.

    Now if Microsoft want to lower drastically the price of the Xbox One, so she subsidize the price of the Xbox One and if you want to have a much lower price than the PS4, then she bid on the market another simple version of the Xbox One by 299$ without the
    Blue Ray reader, based solely on digital distribution.
