FYI genius, they arent getting rid of kinect, they are offering an alternative budget model. Lmao this derp thought they were dumping it hahaa


And who is going to buy the Kinect on it's own for over $100?

Face it the Kinect is dead, they are going to retail it for $150 at a guess, nobody is going to buy it for that price, meaning developers simply wont want anything to do with it any more.

Considering it is outpacing the 360's sales at the same point in it's lifespan...I'd say it has a fairly promising future.

It did outpace the 360 at the holidays, but remember the 360 had supply constraints. In Q3 it actually sold 500,000 less than the 360. So after the holidays there is a sharp decline, that's why they slowed production and they are offering a Kinectless sku. They have to get back in the fight, it's good business.

Uh, a $500 system sold over 5 million units in 6 months. In what world do you live in where that is bad????? Its a million behind the PS4, and costs more! Pretty sure they are doing just fine and there is clearly many millions of people that want the X1.


Shipped 5 million not sold. There is a difference but I digress.


Canīt talk sense to rabid fanboys my friend.
