It’s been several years since the introduction of the Kinect for Xbox 360, and its game-changing features have been available for pretty much every user of any Xbox 360–or any one of those Just Dance areas in arcades in various malls across the country.
But the journey of the Kinect has now apparently come to a bittersweet end, as Microsoft has decided to stop manufacturing it as a clear sign of its discontinuity. Over the years, Microsoft has actually started to slow pull back on its emphasis on the Kinect, focusing more on other aspects or features of the Xbox gaming consoles to market it to prospective buyers.
So the writing was, in fact, already on the wall. The Kinect has a few interesting use cases but apparently none were enough to make it stick. You’ll find a eulogy of sorts written for the Kinect by Fast Company’s Co.Design, which broke the exclusive story of its unsurprising demise through the source link below.
