The system is inferior, and the gap is still there. Either way, a price cut in the first year is not something to make anyone proud. This is the Sega Saturn vs the PS1 all over again.

If MS offers multiple game pack-ins as a Christmas bundle, you know it is DOA.


I don't think you can call something dead on arrival over a year after release

i thought it was separating the kinect from xbone was impossible?

And so Microsoft confirms what most sane people have been saying from the start: drop the damn kinect.

It also (sadly) confirms that no one really had any ideas as to how to use the kinect for anything in their games and that the "innovation" it brought was nothing more than switching channels and collecting your user data for their Nuads.

This is the first step towards what will be the recovery of this console, if they now manage to show some good exclusives at E3.

The voice commands are worth 100 dollars alone.

It means it is so desperate for sales, they will throw all previous customers under the bus to entice new buyers....

It will effectively be DOA.

I may be in the minority, but I don't think removing Kinect will help at all with shifting more consoles. :/




It's common sense that a lower price will sell more consoles.


Apologies for bumping up this topic, and, I know certain users on this board aren't a representative of the public, or gaming public if you will, but even with Microsoft's revision of the console - from removing DRM, lowering price, removing the pay wall, and not having Kinect forced on every Xbox One console, these people still aren't happy. It's still a heathen to the gaming culture, supposedly.

It all it comes down to now is that the PS4 is 'more power' than the XB1. And that is why I think removing Kinect won't help shift the thing all that much, and why I think they shouldn't have bothered.

:shrugs:
