Do the Xbox one still require kinect to function

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.

I have Kinect plugged in but I never use it to navigate.

"Correct. Xbox One is Kinect." Microsoft VP

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


no one said it was hard to navigate without the kinect it's just Clunky, the UI was designed for voice commands in mind as you can do 99% of all navigation on the console dashboard without even touching the controller. as well as getting to your friends list in less then a second vs having to use the controller.

I am not wrong. Kinect was required to be plugged in when the console was announced. That's what I'm referring to. If you guys had actually read the topic and my initial post, you would've noticed that.

If you read the OP, he already knew that. That wasn't his question.

I did read it, genius. I wasn't calling him out, I was calling the user out that said it was never required. Get some glasses.
