You can leave it in the box but there is stuff u can't do without it. Like there is no way to have it auto sign you in unless the kinect is hooked up.

If you don't want the NSA watching you play Forza you can lease it off but since its so integrated it defeats purpose of buying console.

No problem mine is in the box I'm not gonna use it. Hopefully ms will realize there are a lot of Xboxs that don't even have it hooked up and give us features that they took away and made it so u have to have the kinect to use them.

Lol it shocks me people won't use the kinect , yet they have webcams on their computers with no problem. Btw, you don't have to use it. But your just limiting yourself from lots of extra features. lol.

Still plays games without the Kinect so why would it defeat the purpose? So you don't have crap ass Kinect features, pretty sure he can live with that.

Though, admittedly I would suggest getting the PS4 instead. I personally refuse to buy a peripheral that I'd leave in the box. That's why I'm waiting for a Kinect free SKU which I expect to come in a couple of years.

Laptop and computer cameras aren't large external devices that I don't want to see in my living room. Plus, I never use my laptop camera, much like I will never use the Kinect.

Look, I don't care what anyone else does with their Kinect, so I have no idea why you would care whether I want to use mine or not. I just don't want one. I have zero interest in its "features". Believe me when I say that I will not be limiting my enjoyment of the games I play by not using the Kinect. I do, however, want to get an X1 eventually, and was just looking for clarification.

Kinect isn't that great tbh. I just tried mine for a hour and could never get it to work right. I put it back in box where it will stay. Never wanted it any ways.

Only after Xbox games that use controller.
