    ( •_•)>⌐■-■ ... (⌐■_■) YYYYEEEEAAAAAHHHHH!

    No stone has been left unturned in the quest to find something, anything, that the Xbox Kinect is good for, and it may have paid off: The Kinect seems pretty useful for investigating crime scenes. I can only guess that it wound up in this role after its prominent part in the case of how the PS4 murdered the Xbox One.

  2. Xbox One Dev Kits Now Have More Graphics Power, Yes, It’s From Dropping Mandatory Kinect

    Achievement unlocked: 1080p.

    "No, your console doesn't have more graphical power. Mine just has a lot of untapped potential. You'll see," the argument that is as old as gaming goes. Well, in the case of the Xbox One, it's actually kind of true. Now that Kinect is no longer mandatory, developers have some extra graphical power to work with that was previously sealed off.

  4. Microsoft Isn’t Happy British Spies Considered Spying on Gamers With Kinect

    A program they probably abandoned when realizing only children and drunk people use Kinect.

    Further proving British spies have their fingers firmly on the pulse of the technologically literate, new details in their probably incredibly useful Yahoo user spying program say that they were also eyeing Microsoft's Kinect as a way to spy on people. Is there no piece of technology we can trust? Luckily, who even uses Kinect?

  6. South Korea Monitors Their Border With Microsoft’s Kinect, at Least Somebody Found a Use for It

    If you're really good at Kinect games, will they recruit you Last Starfighter-style?

    For the Xbox One, Microsoft pulled out all the stops and developed an incredibly powerful version of the original Kinect, and pretty much no one cared, because they just want it to be $100 cheaper like the PlayStation 4.

Case in point-- a new software that uses a projector in tandem with the Kinect to create a touch screen out of any surface. Just another sign we're getting closer to "the future."

    Well, this was was only a matter of time since Microsoft reversed their DRM and used game policies for the upcoming Xbox One. The company now says the new console will also function without the motion-sensing Kinect peripheral -- and its attendant camera -- which had previously been announced as necessary for use.
