Ever since the E3 2013 debacle, Microsoft have been listening to consumers and have been making drastic changes in their policies. Perhaps the most drastic measure they have taken to combat the rocketing PlayStation 4 sales was the introduction of a Kinect-less SKU at $399.
Speaking to Kenny Lee, co-founder of Cell Door Games, GamingBolt asked about his thoughts on Microsoft’s latest Xbox One SKU and whether it will help regain some of the good will that Microsoft have lost since the launch of their console.
“Honestly, I thought having a Kinect included in the Xbox One was a great idea. Not so much the always-on, creepy privacy invasion though. As a developer, it’s fantastic to work on hardware that you know everybody has. And the Kinect is an incredible piece of technology.
“But now that the market is fragmented, it’s harder to justify investing in this tech. So when I heard the news it sadden me a bit, although to be fair I don’t think developers were jumping on it as readily as Microsoft had anticipated,” he said.
