While I'll likely end up getting a Kinect-less Xbox One at some point, I'm kinda sad to see things go down as they are. I'd much rather had some killer Kinect games, that made me finally see the promise come to life. That said, we now know that affordable VR is the path into the future, and that this future is so close, some of us already live it today - which kinda makes the promise of Kinect alone obsolete.
Let's hope VR delivers. It's certainly high time for the first next gamechanger since polygonal 3D graphics.
