Peter Molyneux: Kinect on Xbox One is 'Unnecessary'


The former head of Lionhead Studios, Peter Molyneux has given his thoughts on Kinect for the Xbox One.

In an interview with Edge, Peter stated:

Maybe it’s because we’re in England, and it doesn’t really use the TV stuff, but it feels more and more like a joke. My son and I sit there saying random things at it, and it doesn’t work. They could cost-reduce it [by removing Kinect], I’m sure they’re going to release an Xbox One without Kinect. It would be unthinkable that they wouldn’t.

Speaking about dropping Kinect from the Xbox One, head of Xbox, Phil Spencer also stated:

We’re always trying to match what consumers are asking for, I always want to make sure that we’re in tune with what current or potential customers are asking for from us. Right now, [dropping Kinect is] not the number one request from people. Usually it’s, ‘Where are the great games?’ There are a number of games on the ID@Xbox programme that use Kinect, and you’ll see more games in the fall.
