Microsoft WILL sell Xbones without Kinect eventually

Think about it, if you buy your console at launch it will most likely break before the gen has ended, guaranteed. If your console is not covered by the warranty anymore and you buy a new console do you really want to have two Kinects? Many people don't even want one Kinect. Just have some patience, let the early adopters be the guinea pigs. Wait a little bit and you'll save money, get an Xbone without Kinect and have a console with more reliable hardware most likely.

you can already see the lack of support by the developers for the Kinect...as you said, it's pretty much inevitable for a Kinectless model eventually

Kinect is the signature of the X1, it's not just a simple add on. It's basically what makes the X1 a next gen console. It isn't going away.

You mean how Sony will start selling PS4's without controllers?
Because if I already own 3 dualshock4 and don't want another one, why would I buy another PS4 if my PS4 breaks?

Lack of support? Many of the Multi plats and most of the exclusives utilize kinect. What lack of support are you talking about?

If that was the case, you wouldn't be able to disconnect it. It simply isn't needed like they once claimed it was.

It's extremely limited. If they wanted to support it more in depth, they could have done so. It simply doesn't have a place. It does nothing significant or integral to gameplay.
