Kinect 2.0 Not Xbox One Exclusive, Also Coming To PC

It was recently announced that the new Kinect 2.0 will be bundled with Microsoft‘s new next-gen console Xbox One. But it has also been reported that Kinect 2.0 won’t be an Xbox exclusive like it’s predecessor and Microsoft plans to also make it available to PC! Although the first Kinect was already being used by enthusiasts for the PC in the past, we’re sure that Kinect 2.0 will be a different experience. Some of the features of Kinect 2.0 are

  • Can detect user’s heart rate by examining the skin color and trasparency.
  • Can keep track of different player profiles by linking them to a specific controller. This means even if players swap controller, Xbox One will be able to recognize which profile is the new Player one.
  • 1080p RGB camera.
  • 60% better field of view.
So, are you excited because of this news? Are we seeing PC game developers embracing the Kinect in the future? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
