G2A.COM  G2A News Latest News Microsoft ceases Kinect manufacturing
The inevitable has come.
Lets quickly jump into the past for a few seconds. Just a couple of years ago Microsoft was heavily promoting Kinect as the revolution for the next generation. With games, tech demos and a plethora of household appliance functionalities it was hailed to be the next big thing.
Well, that didn’t happen, did it? Kinect has been dead for a couple of years now with occasional dancing games giving it some viability. Microsoft must have followed a similar chain of thought as it officially announced it is halting the production of the hardware.
Kinect might have sold in bunches at one time in the past but failed to deliver on all the wonderful promises the manufacturers made. It had a second life in the hands of hackers, programmers, and artist who tore the camera apart for their own personal ideas sparkling experimental games and art installation.
