Harrison Says Something Quite Disturbing About Kinect
This definitely has to go on the list of the strangest things I’ve heard this week. For reals. But first, I’ll give you the context quick.
In a recent chat with CVG, Microsoft corporate vice president Phil Harrison reiterated that the company has no intention of releasing an Xbox One without Kinect included.

In the interview Harrison spoke about Kinect and why it won’t be separate to Xbox One.
“Xbox One is Kinect. They are not separate systems. An Xbox One has chips, it has memory, it has Blu-ray, it has Kinect, it has a controller. These are all part of the platform ecosystem.
“What we have shown really well at Gamescom is the magic of games that use Kinect,” Harrison said.
“We have shown the power of voice control. I’m probably going to piss off your readers unintentionally when I say this; I have an Xbox One at home, and being able to walk in and say ‘Xbox on’, and for the system to recognise me, launch and load my profile, and put my choices of content on the font page is a very magical experience.”
Now, here is that disturbing thing I mentioned in the header. Prepare yourself. Just read the following line slowly and try to digest what is being said. Think about it for one moment. If you have a warped brain, it shall be easier.
“It makes you think about your relationship with technology in a slightly different way. It’s personal. It makes you think, I wish more devices would do this.”
It’s just that, well, there are so many poorly chosen words in that sentence.
For some reason, it reminds me of this movie that’s coming out later this year. Check it out down below.
