Microsoft thought they won the "video game war" before the Xbox One launched

So they went straight to wanting to win the "media device war" making Xbox One an attempt at being the "All in one entertainment" device. Now though, they basically cut off the Xbox One's head with selling it without Kinect, and it's reverted to being "Just another game console".

It's a shame really

Perfectly put. They played the PS3 card and it bite them back in the ***
At first it's a media machine, then it's going, 180 after 180, to a simple gaming machine.

Lack of vision MS? I think so.

What are you talking about? You can do pretty much the same without kinect.
Its just a voice Command took along with motion sensing.

It has its benefits but Microsoft have just given a choice to its customers of wanting one or not.

Wouldn't matter. They want the attention of XBox fans so bad they would end invading Microsoft-run sites.

Kinect's entire purpose was to reinvent TV, to make it social, having you discussing what you watch in groups together. The Xbox One with Kinect was suppose to be "the next water-cooler" and it's clearly just another game console now

They are winning. Ps4 is losing money to a nearly bankrupt company and has no games. Its hype has faded now and its relying on the illusion of success by being in 4 times the countries at the cheaper price.

No wonder ps division lost 80 million while xbox made 800 million profit.
