Phil Spencer pretends Kinect never happened during interview

During a lengthy interview for Official Xbox Magazine UK, head of Microsoft’s Xbox division Phil Spencer has been repeatedly asked about the future of the Kinect peripheral in relation to the Xbox One, to no avail.

Here are a few bits from the interview (which can be fully viewed on the Official Xbox Magazine website):

“I was personally surprised to see that the Master Chief Collection was not gonna feature kinect controls in any forms, but in the end I enjoyed the game nevertheless.”

“Controls what now?”

“Kinect controls.”

“What’s a ‘Kinect’?”

“I’m talking about Microsoft’s motion-tracking device for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.”

“I’m afraid I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.”

Microsoft later released an official statement that reported “Kinect never happened, guys“.
