Obviously the one absolutely desirable and real
improvement--the huge leap in computing and graphics power which enables more immersive video gaming experiences. It looks as though they've also made some nice improvements in the controller. The other stuff, particularly mandatory Kinect, not so useful.
I own a first gen Kinect and though it can be used to control all of the apps with voice and gestures, I only enable it when I want to play a motion controlled game, like one of the Kinect Sports
titles or Fruit Ninja Kinect
. I can see where some games might be significantly enhanced with the addition of voice control; cool. If there's a reason to use it, I'll use it. I'd just like to be able to completely disable it at all other times. The degree to which that will be possible is not yet clear.
