In a year Microsoft introduced a touch-screen controller for Xbox 360 in Oct 2010 started to distribute shopping. Intrigued by the advertising campaign, the people began to dismantle the new, and, according to the Corporation, in those seven years has sold 35 million devices.

Meanwhile, a video game designed for Kinect were not so many, so very soon, users lost interest in the device. And forced the pitch controller together with the Xbox One at the start of the last console generation didn’t help much (and probably even hurt, because of the Kinect cost of boxes increased by one hundred dollars to make a cheap PlayStation 4 is the most attractive in the eyes of consumers).
