Microsoft is never going to sell an Xbox one without kinect

Why are people waiting for an Xbox one without kinect? It's never going to happen. The system is built around kinect.

If an extra $100 is really that big of a deal for you, then you shouldn't be in the market for a next gen console in the first place.

If the console was so built around Kinect as you say they would have never removed the feature where it always has to be plugged in.

I'll end up getting an Xbox One next year after I get my PS4, but, if a Kinect-less version isn't out the Kinect will be staying in the box and never touched.

It's possible. If the Xbox One doesn't sell as well as hoped, then perhaps one way Microsoft cuts the price is by releasing a bundle without the Kinect. Or maybe much later in the console's lifespan, Microsoft does it to make it really cheap and accessible to the more casual crowd who might be inclined to buy an Xbox One if it's at, say, $200 or something like that. But there is no guarantee that either will happen, of course.

Just buy one second hand from Craigslist without the kinect. Then M$ won't get any money from it and everyone wins.

That sucks man. I think KINECT 2.0 is the main reason this console has a bad rep.

Me too, I never liked the kinect on the 360, I don't care how much it's improved I don't want to use it, the only reason I had a kinect on 360 is because my Gears 3 console broke and I had to have it replaced and the only one they had was the Star Wars console, I even told the guy in the store to not even bother with the kinect.

It's a huge waste of time, it's not something a lot of people want, and I don't like that they were basically forcing me to use it and now I HAVE to have it come with the console if I want one.

Ms will eventually drop the price from $500 with the kinect still bundled so what does it matter.

That doesn't mean it's ever going to come without it? It was just foolish to require it.

I'm actually really looking forward to using the new kinect.
