I'm not sure how legit this is, but if true, this could be awesome for some http://www.craveonline.com/gaming/articles/694713-you-can-get-an-xbox-one-with-kinect-for-399-right-now

This is what they should have done from the start to remain competitive.

Include Kinect with the X1 for that price? Wouldn't that mean that they would lose a lot of money on it, like Sony did with ps3?

If they did, then X1 wouldn't be much different from ps4. It'd be the same thing as usual. Every generation. More powerful hardware, and that's it. My guess. If Sony doesn't collapse and release a PS5, it will be more powerful than ps4, and that's it.

True they would have lost money, but they could have found a way to either make it up. Or consider it an investment to get the kinect out there. They over estimated the desire their customers had for spending an extra $100 for the peripheral when they could just get the PS4 for cheaper.

I keep seeing these garbage articles on how the consumer is stifling innovation by not wanting the kinect, but i think the truth is most people just don't care enough to spend the extra money when they have a cheaper system available to buy for games.

It was very short sighted on MS part and now they are trying to compete when PS already has far higher sales and better PR for a system that people are calling weaker.

So you don't see any hope for the new Xbox One bundle ?

Well I guess that's it then. Congratulation Sony, the new Xbox One bundle is hopeless.

I wouldn't call it hopeless, but i would say it is happening kind of late with a bunch of bad PR. XBOX will still sell, but probably not nearly as well overall as it could have if they wouldn't have screwed up at the start.

I'm saying that I personally don't think there was a need for this move. I was all for MS' vision when X1 was announced. Now, damn near all of it is gone thanks to very vocal "gamers". At least I can rest assured that Kinect will get some support, since roughly 5 million people have it. But this whole argument has been done to death. I'm sure most would disagree. At the same time, I've see many articles that agree with me.

Does anyone know if its possible to be able to price match this at a big retailer like Best Buy or Walmart? Not all that interested in kinect, but this is a pretty good deal.
