Microsoft - "We have no plans to introduce an Xbox One without Kinect"

We received a comment denying this story from a Microsoft spokesperson. Here’s the quote:

“We have no plans to introduce an Xbox One without Kinect. We believe in Kinect and the value it brings to both games and entertainment, and believe $499 is a great value for what consumers receive with their Xbox One.”

Guess this confirms what Xbox gamers have feared.

What I find funny is they believe in kinect so much to essentially kick out everyone who doesn't want it. Great business strategy.

So they also have no plans on increasing their sales numbers in that case. Good for MS continue being the stubborn mule that you're.

If they do remove it which I doubt, it would be another loss of a unique selling point. All they got left really is the TV stuff.
Due to recent economic conditions, and the rising cost of Electricity, Gas and Oil, the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off.
