What if MS put the extra 100 bucks the spent on Kinect on the hardware.

They could have kept the cable stuff, made a more powerful console then the ps4 and then could have justified the 500$ price tag.

I think they're honestly more than 100$ behind hardware wise, the estimates were 30-40% graphical processing, and it struggles to get 720/30 fps on a lot of multiplats that 2010 PCs can run smoothly on higher. (Less optimized as well, since PC specs mean that programs are usually not perfectly optimized)

If thats the case then they made some awful design choices.

I don't understand why the Xbox One is so huge when it has weaker hardware.

The power supply isn't even inside the console.

Because I don't understand why the console is so huge that's trolling? I don't think you know what trolling is. I'm not an electronics hardware designer.
