I am not understanding all this regarding the kinect. From the beginning MS had stated that they were going to bring a kinectless version out a little later after the complete bundle. Now that they have a lot of people seem to be getting their panties in a twist stating it is a 180. Am I missing something? I am not being sarcastic with this post but I genuinely do not understand what everyone is going on about? --- XBOX360/One GT: Hades Dragoness I have Asperger's.

I don't remember them saying anything about planning for a Kinectless version before a few days ago. Up until then it was all "Kinect is required". --- GameFAQs isn't going to be merged in with GameSpot or any other site. We're not going to strip out the soul of the site. -CJayC on 6/3/2003
Oh I bought my xboxone at the start of April I think but I know the kinectless version was stated way back before Christmas because both myself and my husband were contemplating whether to wait for it or not. I decided to go for the kinect one because I like the health/excercise side of it. My husband hates kinect and, though he also got a complete bundle because he has no patience and could not wait, is happy that it is finally out so he can trade his kinect part in.
It just threw me seeing all the threads giving the impression that this was a shock announcement. --- XBOX360/One GT: Hades Dragoness I have Asperger's. If I sound harsh or rude please do not take it personally.
Clearly the TC, like many people unfortunately, read some random article on the Internet and didn't know that it was inaccurate.
Up until the moment Microsoft shocked everyone the other day the company's stance was that Kinect would never be unbundled. Even developers were taken by surprise, such as Harmonix which has been working on a new Kinect-only title for some time now. --- ALL games should have a Single Player mode.

My husband works in the gaming industry and he was the one who told me about it before xmas ... but with articles like those I do not know what to think now.... maybe it is something that I will never understand. Thank you for your replies anyway :) --- XBOX360/One GT: Hades Dragoness I have Asperger's. If I sound harsh or rude please do not take it personally.
