"Games use Kinect in a variety of amazing ways, from adding voice to control your squad mates, to adding lean and other simple controls beyond the controller, to full immersive gameplay," he says. "That said, like online, the console will still function if Kinect isn't plugged in, although you won't be able to use any feature or experience that explicitly uses the sensor."

I have been visiting some of the gaming forums on the net. You would be amazed at how many people are totally Pissed off that the kinect is no longer Mandatory! They act like Xbox got rid of the Kinect all together. They are pissed that you and I are not FORCED to use it.

the only reason to be pissed is because you have to pay for it even if you dont want it. kinect cost as much to manufacture as the xbox itself.

the price would half if they didnt include the kinect.

stupid really they could match the price of ps4 and make more profit. i bet sony is laughing its a$$ off as they are probably making good profit at $400 and microsoft keep making people mad with flip flopping everywhere.

oh so now you dont need the kinect where as before it was impossible too boot up without it lol if microsoft wasnt selling consoles and software, they would be Nigerian phishers.

The xboxone pre-orders were through the roof all along. So I doubt this or any of the bull shit has anything to do with the sales. Microsoft has always listened to their customers. That makes a good company if you ask me. Yes they do try to do things before the market may be ready but they have always done what needs to be done to be successful and no one argue that point away. They were the underdog with xbox, they were the leader with 360 and they will be supreme with xbox one.

So let's complain about getting the Kinect for $100 when it is worth $300 plus. It's funny how people slap a gift horse in the mouth.

I do have to say it would make sense for MS to have a Kinectless package for like $400 or less, then there would be nothing in the way of excelling sales of the xboxone.

loads of people want a stand alone package with kinect. $400 would be nice.
