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?

Not trying to be disrespectful, but your second sentence is absolutely 100% false.

I know this is the internet and you don't have to prove anything to anyone if you don't want to, but if you can supply me with a dated link of what you said in that sentence, I would apppreciate it.

Meanwhile, I have a link I'd like you to visit. Please read what the Microsoft exec says. The link is at the top. I'm on a phone and it's hard manipulating some things.

And if any of you have similar links to that one, where a Microsoft exec speaks out in a similar manner, please post them.

I was going to start a thread of those quotes because they will be of use to some purchasers but I feel it might get modded--and I KNOW it would get attacked by the pro-Microsoft crowd here and the mods might think it disruptive.

Sorry, you were saying?


I'm not sure what your problem is. They can make changes if they want. There are 2 types of changes. One type of change is in favor of restrictions. Another type of change is in favor of choices.

Here's what we know. Kinect will still be produced. Two skus will be sold: Xbox One with Kinect Xbox One without Kinect. Previously there was no choice. Now there's a choice.

One of the worst kinds of attitudes is the one that says that you must stick to your guns nomatter what. Microsoft is showing that they are man enough to do what is takes to satisfy customers, and I praise them for that. For those who want companies to stick to their guns nomatter what: You're just plain stupid.

I just want to make something very very clear to some posters. This is not a troll post. This is not me saying something that it is law or mocking. I have Autism and I find some things confusing. This is why I have made this thread.

I got "my" information, as some of you have put it, via word of mouth, in particular from my husband. Because of his work I did not look more into it. Maybe, in hindsight, I should have but I find asking straight out on forums is faster then trying to google something and get a dozen false pages.

To those who have posted links, Thank you. This helps me understand and, though my confusion is still there in some contexts, it has lessened.

I see this thread as closed now because those who have posted links have helped me towards understanding the topic.

"not in our plans" is not what anyone is questioning. Anyone can see the "wiggle room" there.

Read the statement made by Harrison in my post above. There is no "wiggle room" there.

The problem is people parrot rumors and speculation as fact pretty much constantly online till you sometimes can't tell that something isn't official.

Same thing is going on right now with the Halo 2 rumors.

Hades Dragoness--I know I have no problem with your original post.

Many of us here now are sorting thru the new situation, so please don't be put off if some people got a little upset.
