I know that aren't any time soon but I'm sure in a year or 2 they will. It's just stubborn though. I know a lot of people who refuse to buy the xbox one because of the kinect. I am just saying IMO that would have been a better strategy. To leave one at $500 with the kinect and Titanfall. And release a kinectless model with no Titanfall at $400. Most people would still gravitate towards the $500 model because if u buy Titanfall with your $400 xbox it's only $40 more. But there would still be people that would buy the $400 model. And that's all besides the point since no one knows if this is permanent or a sale or them just matching a price. But in all honesty MS has to think what is more important getting more consoles in peoples homes. Or getting less consoles in people homes but with the kinect. I don't know about you but I would want more consoles in people homes.


This. I will never ever buy an Xbox One until it eliminates Kinect. No reason for it. I think that there will be a Kinect less console for $400 by E3 2015 or sooner. The previous guy in charge loved Kinect and basically forced it. The new guy in charge is said to hate it and wants it gone. Dont know how true that is but if it is, I dont blame the new guy in charge.

If Sony cut its price in half, there'd be "wow, Sony loves consumers!" going around on GameFAQs like the black plague. MS going bankrupt is about as likely as zombie Hitler rising up to conquer Earth. They're just realizing that making people pay $100 for the Kinect was a bad idea.


I really doubt that. People would be wondering why they are dropping the price if it's selling. And them would immediately think the company is going under tomorrow. And it's not that people think MS is going out of business. People are afraid they are going to axe the division like the shareholders want them to do.

Whether people like it or not the shareholders want xbox gone. It drains too much money from the company without ever bringing in profit. Being a console manufacturer isn't cheap. And the shareholders that want it goes have serious pull. I mean for god sake they forced out Steve ballmer who was bill gates right hand man. And they even tried to get bill gates forced out (although it was unsuccessful) they feel he is just driving the company into the ground. And the xbox brand isn't helping them not think that.

ya, there's no reason for Sony to cut the price or give PS4 a sale, when it's on top...

Capitalism Win!!! Now drop that Kinect and MS can totally undercut the competition with that glorious $350 price tag.


This would be compelling and could not be ignored.

It seems smart. That will sell consoles.


Really? Do you think they still would have dropped the price if they had the lead in sales and not Sony?

What if MS can offer you $350 without removing anything from the package? I might not use the kinect but that's a $100 piece of hardware I get free.

Oh and about the Wii U not price dropping until much later. Yes, and what happened? They acted late and suffered massive losses. Expenses grew, while no sales were made. Nintendo is and was stupid. MS is being smart here by acting sooner rather than later.

that is what happens when you're getting rightly throttled by the competition. This move will help to push some xbox one sales, I mean PS4 won't be sold out forever, once stores get PS4 back in stock Xbone sales will bottom out again
