Peter Molyneaux thinks Kinect is “a joke”.
Fable creator and promise-maker of all things great and small, Peter Molyneaux, has said the Xbox One’s Kinect “feels more and more like a joke.” In an interview with Edge, the former Lionhead studio head and current founder of 22Cans said “I actually wish Kinect wasn’t a requirement. It feels like an unnecessary add-on to me. 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.”
Molyneaux believes that eventually the Xbox One will be sold without the Kinect because of its lack of practicality outside of the US leading him to say “I’m sure [Microsoft is] going to release an Xbox One without Kinect. It would be unthinkable that they wouldn’t.” The principals at Xbox have been adamant that selling the Xbox One without the Kinect is not an option, going so far as to say that the Kinect IS the Xbox One.
