Do the Xbox one still require kinect to function

#1DaEdge614Posted 6/17/2014 2:59:04 PM
Originally i got a PS4 but recently that was stolen, so i was thinking about switching up. The Kincect requirement and the price were basically the deal breakers for me last time. I know Xbox changed a lot so i was wondering if they changed the requirement of the kincect

Starting at 399, bud.

The second you unplug your kinect a ticking time bomb goes off in your xbox one. I found this out the hard way... FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DON'T UNPLUG IT!!!!

They removed the kinect requirement before they even released the console. I've had mine since launch and I rarely ever have the kinect plugged in.

It's not required per say but the UI was designed with it in mind so it's super clunky with just a controller, sadly.

It really isn't that hard to navigate the menus with a controller.
