A Kinect-less Xbox One should be coming out by this time next year, right?

The kinect is a huge burden that Microsoft would be silly not to remove

It'll come out when they need to save themselves from a sales slump

I seriously think removing it will never happen. It is a vital piece of the Xbox One that MS has invested a lot of money in. Including it in every package ensures that developers can take advantage of it. If they start selling it without the device what does that do to the early adopters of the console? They end up with a peripheral that wont be utilized much. Bad business decision really.

Bad business decision really.


So, on par with the rest of Microsoft's recent business decisions, then?

why they keep pushing the kinect befuddles be completely

I could understand if it was even semi-popular but every poll any website has ever had shows that less than 10% of voters even want the thing

is ms really willing to lose millions of sales because they won't get rid of a silly gimmick peripheral?

that's like a stubborn child that refuses to throw away a blanket he took a dump on

Part of the reason 360 players are switching over to the PS4, is because they are sick of Kinect games being labeled as "exclusive" in the face of games like Last of Us. The sooner Microsoft ditches the Kinect, and shows consumers they are hanging up the kiddie/casual BS, people might come back...

They will just lower the price of the bundle. Kinect is now a standard it seems.
#10Reflex-ArcPosted 10/25/2013 6:48:09 PM
I think MS honestly thinks they are on to something with the new Kinect and that's why they are so adamant about including it. It's like Steve Jobs once said...

A lot of times, people don't know what they want until you show it to them

...maybe this thing really is something special this time. I'm willing to give it a shot.
