Microsoft Milking "Day One Owners"

Kinect was "integral" to the Xbox One The Xbox One will "never" be sold without kinect. I lose a lot of respect for them for going back and dropping what everyone was expecting to be what set it apart next gen. 10% Of the power was for the kinect or was originally planned. Now what about everyone who bought $500 kinect bundle. They got robbed $100. If 3.2 million people got robbed $100 each that's at least $320,000,000 excess spent by their consumers. That's not exactly what id consider a good thing.
Selling a cheaper model is almost insulting to the people who adopted the choice to have a definitive choice between key features. What's setting the console apart from the others gameplay wise now? Is controller preference and exclusives enough to compensate the disappointment of how major the Kinect was supposed to be for the Xbox. So if they still sell Kinects are some games now going to be even playable without voice commands? Is it now an optional peripheral?

Interesting to note, those statements were made by Phil Harrison.

You know who was big dog at Sony during the PS3's launch troubles? Phil Harrison.

When Phil Harrison is in charge, you know it's gonna be bad.

They didn't get robbed, they *chose* to spend that money. And I say that as someone who both hates the Kinect and bought an XBOne just over a week before this announcement.

Cheating has gone hand-in-hand with gaming for centuries. Video games in particular often have cheats built right into the game.

Kinect 2.0 wasn't going to amount to anything anyway, just like last gen...

You obviously don't know the definition of 'robbery.'
