Xbox One Without Kinect Would Be Real Shame, “Console Wars Really Funny” says Kinect Sports Rivals Developer

A Kinect-less Xbox One bundle would be a REAL SHAME, according to Kinect Sports Rivals executive Producer Danny Isaac. In a recent interview to our friend at GameSpot, Isaac stated that Kinect makes Xbox One games development more diverse.

Xbox One Without Kinect“I love that there’s loads of services coming in” said Isaac. “Cloud-based services, and Xbox Live has done a fantastic job, and as we’re getting more integrated with other systems as well. I think that’s going to open stuff up. Obviously the controller is great, traditionally, but I think they’ve done a really good job on [Xbox One]. Second screen? I don’t think we’ve got [SmartGlass] quite right yet, but again you can really start to see these things treading together and opening up opportunities, and now having a microphone and camera.”

“20 years ago, I’d have a team that would be going crazy if they had this kind of technology, now we have it and people are like, well, I don’t want it, I just want my controller and my screen. It would be a real shame if we lost items like that” he added.

When Issac was asked to comment on those who attack Kinect technology, he replied: “There will always be people who don’t like what you do. I will always find these console wars really funny as well, personally I have a Wii U, a PS4, and an Xbox 360 and an Xbox One under my TV at home. If you are a real gamer, you get everything. You want to see everything, you want to experience all these different innovations. I just like to experience games. There’s always something somewhere, whether it’s on PC, mobile, or main console, which broadens my horizons and makes me a better game maker.”

Mandatory Kinect with Xbox One for a price of $499 has been slammed by both critics and gaming community, and on top of that we have not yet seen a dedicated Kinect push games for Xbox One, just take an example of Kinect Sports Rivals, it will launch on April 8.
