"Despite offering a new Xbox One bundle without Kinect for $399, $100 less than the Xbox One’s $499 launch price, according to Matt Booty, Microsoft’s general manager of games, the company remains committed to the accessory......"

Booty? Really?

Seriously though, I hope they get out some games that will make me buy a kinect.

Let's be honest here, outside of voice commands the Kinect will never see much if any use.

I can't wait for Kinect PC, it seems like the perfect peripheral for PC gaming. Might even get me to upgrade to Windows 8.

It wouldn't be good PR for them to say "welp, we're done with the kinect. Chuck that thing in the bin!"
They say she's low down, but it's just a rumor I don't believe 'em.

This.

People are way too gullible when it comes to corporate PR, and that explains perfectly why companies like EA, Activision, and Microsoft get away cleanly with selling shoddy practices and products.

what they actually meant is that they will give the same level of commitment they were giving it before

which is not committed at all.
