Back when the Kinect was being promoted, I wrote a post about how terrible I thought it looked. I implied that it was a buggy, useless and ultimately insulting product. But, hey! Now the Kinect has been out for a while, and…
…I was wrong about none of these things.
I was, however, wrong when I predicted that it was going to fail spectacularly. It didn’t. Quite the opposite, in fact! It’s sold well over 10 million units at this point, despite having literally two good games (one of which is a sequel to the other).
So, in summation, I apologize for assuming that no one would buy something that has basically no value. I’m an idiot.
MORAL OF THE STORY: Do not overestimate the average consumer’s intelligence.
