Xbox One FAQs V1.0

About the System:

Kinect 2.0

All Xbox One consoles will ship with a Kinect 2.0 as standard.

The Kinect can be turned completely off, or put in to a sleep mode.

Wait a minute..."The Kinect can be turned completely off" is completely a misnomer at this point in time.

I think you know very well that this is a very - ahem - "sticky" issue with many people because the Kinect 2.0 CANNOT be turned completely off....regardless of any double-speak Microsoft tries to spin on this issue by saying 'menu settings' can turn the Kinect 'off' or place it in 'sleep mode.'

Since the Kinect 2.0 connections cannot be severed from the main Xbox One console or the Kinect's power cord removed without the Xbox One console going into a functionless "stand-by" mode, the Kinect can thus NOT be truly "turned off."

This "feature" of the Xbox One may be changed at some point in the future or before launch, but for now it is Microsoft's official stance on the subject.

I have a link listing the unique features of X1. Is that worthy to be added to this sticky, so people are fully aware of what they're getting?

Yes, misinformation should not be spread, unless Microsoft has recently announced that Kinect 2.0 is an accessory. If so, I missed the memo. With most electronic devices, you can unplug them. Without batteries, they are off. The problem with the Xbone is that when you unplug your Kinect 2.0, you can no longer use the console. Pencils are 'off,' the Kinect 2.0 is not, unless you want to disable TV, sports, GAMES, etc. I'll sidestep the NSA, but misleading people isn't funny.

TC - If you are going to post "facts" about the Xbox One, make sure you post facts

MODS - If you are going to grant a topic a sticky, put your personal biases aside and make sure the content in the thread is truthful and not Public Relations jargon.

Thank you.
