While the Microsoft Kinect is still in use somewhat, it was initially going to be a huge part of Xbox gaming on the initial Xbox One. It was used well in 2011 for the Xbox 360. The upgraded Kinect 2.0 was going to be included with the Xbox One bundle, so Microsoft hoped game developers would want to find a way to utilize the Kinect in some form. Sony even tried to copy the concept just in case it became the next big thing. Yet third-party developers just did not see the use it provided, especially with its technical limitations. Microsoft assumed it would be huge, yet it ultimately became one of gaming’s biggest failed tech products.
