Xbox One on Kinect Still Used by “Vast Majority” of Owners

More for biometric sign-in and user interface and less for games though.

Microsoft has been busy taking a different stance on Kinect since the introduction of the Xbox One – it’s no longer bundled along with the console, much of the functionality is not geared towards and there’s a conscious effort to provide more traditional, controller-based games.

However, this doesn’t mean that those who own Kinect don’t use it. As Xbox chief marketing officer Mike Nichols explained to Polygon, the “vast majority” use it on a regular basis. “Overall, we don’t break down how many console users have Kinect and how many don’t. That’s a level of granularity we don’t want to get into.

“I can say that the people with Kinect still make up a very, very sizable portion and that those people do use it quiet frequently. Less for games, but a lot more for biometric sign-in and user interface.”

No actual numbers were provided for the same but it would be interesting to note, given the low number of upcoming Kinect games and Microsoft’s approach to the same.

      So I guess you don’t have a cell phone, use google or any of the other 100,000 ways companies monitor statistics. Take your pills already.

    • Terminator

      and how would Sony know how many users have a PS4? Your logic is flawed as ever TrollbotMK1

    • XbotMK1

      That doesn’t make sense or answer the question. C’mon Terminator, your Microsoft fanboy defense logic is failing. lol

    • Terminator

      Oh it does make sense, maybe to a PS Drone like yourself it wouldn’t. But just like you asked how does Microsoft knows how many people still use Kinect I asked how does Sony knows how many users they have.

    • sgt_hammertime

      It is crazy how stupid some people can be (looking at you xbotmk1).

    • Darth Vader™

      Guess that applies to any company then. How else do they get their statistics?
      Use your freaking head.

    • XbotMK1

      There is a difference between knowing how many people played a beta or viewed a game in a store, and who stands in front of a camera or speaks to a camera.

      Use your freaking head.

    • Darth Vader™

      So only one example…a beta.
      Have any links supporting your claims?

    • Tech junkie

      Given voice commands are in its infancy. It’s well known all company’s are trying to correct speach recognition. So yes any idiot that believes Microsoft isn’t trying to better it’s technology with data is stupid. Only an idiot would think they sell the data to the CIA. For example you. You don’t think Sony uses the same data from the PS eye. Idiot fanboy with double standards

      We aren’t defending it.
      We asked for it from day one and they listened.
      We have a better sales record versus the Sony eye.
      We use it
      We have only agreed to reducing Kinect resource allocation when we didn’t need its much.
      We see the Sony eye is an epic fail compared to the Kinect
      We can voice command on and off our system
      We are not salty about it.
      We are considered the best fans.
      We have TV achievements that Sony is trying to copy

      Like us in the facebook and we will like that

    • Tech junkie

      Great video from a Right wing nut job, they are well known for their logic and common sense. You’re such a clown

    • How would Disqus know how many posts you make without spying on you?
      That’s how stupid you sound right now.

  • Starman

    wouldn’t have it any other way … love my kinect !

  • Starman

    gaming bolt are faggots

  • Tech junkie

    Use mine everyday

    • Kinect

      Hahahaha

    • Tech junkie

      Upvoting yourself, hahahaha

  • 2econd gpu unlocking

    We know 100% of People who bought an Xbox One for the first year selected the Kinect.
    Sony can only dream about that amount of attachment rate for the eye.
    Which is around 7%. LOL – 93% didn’t select or want the Sony Eye.
    100% of Xbox users wanted the Kinect and asked for it.
    We use it.
