I've talked my mom into getting me an Xbox one and I'm wondering if the kinect is a) better than the broken senor for the 360, b)worth using dispite the privacy risks since I play games in my bedroom.

I've looked into buying the cover/mount to cover the kinect when I'm not using the xbox one. Also can you accidentally turn on the system by voice?

The Kinect is hands down the worst feature of the XBOX One. It was a forced novelty/gimmick.

They will release the system without the Kinect by the Holiday season next year, that will be when XBOX One sales finally spike.

Uhhh, you get the Kinect whether you want it or not when you buy the Xbox One. You can buy a cover for the cameras. A cover comes with the tv mount made by PDP.

You are supposed to be able to turn it on by voice but I have gotten it to work only once. The rest of the time I can stand in front of it and yell and nothing happens. I really don't like it at all. It also degraded my tv picture when I had it controlling my tv so at the moment it's not even hooked up.

Definitely not worth whatever it added to the price of the Xbox One unit itself.

That is up to you. Some like it. I can tell you that it is always listening, even when the system is powered down. Supposedly so it can hear it's name so it can be turned on by voice.

Kinect for the 360 was the biggest joke, but so far I'm actually enjoying it thus far. I would say I have used the voice integration almost every time that I have used the Xbox One. Hope things just get better as time goes on.

the menu is a pain to navigate without kinect...and I'll say Facial Recognition is the best way to sign in

it beats having to say "Xbox Sign in as(Your Name Here)"or doing it manually with the controller
