The Xbox One Media Remote has gone live on Amazon UK and is fetching for £19.99.
It seems Amazon UK have now removed the listing from their site. Amazon Italy however, still has the listing up on their site.
Media remote????????? Why, why would you need this?!?!? Is microsoft's Kinect not all it's hyped up to be?!?!?
Idk about that, but it may be pointing to a kinect less SKU coming from MS
You are the controller. I guess this is for when you're not home.
Some people prefer buttons. :)
@onyoursis.. what does kinect have to do with the media remote? by your logic the console shouldnt have come with controllers either.right? some people prefer using remotes. the original xbx and xbx 360 had media remotes too.
"what does kinect have to do with the media remote?" Are you serious with this question? Does "You are the remote" ring a bell at all? Sounds like a product that doesn't need another controller.
Simple...it's called option.
I wish for a Kinect less Xbox One "Now that's what I call real options!"
The Kinect works great. Ever heard of having options? Some people just don't like to use the Kinect even if it does work. Giving people options is not a bad thing. Jeez.
:) Why your just proving yourselves that Xbone is an entertainment system, not an true gaming system!
Yes....having a media remote is proof that your console is not a gaming system..... ¬¬
Damn it, I guess my PS2 isn't a gaming system as mine had a remote :(
PS3 has a blu-ray remote, I consider that to be a pretty great gaming console
to be fair the ps3 was also a bluray player.
I see you dropped the act...well done
PS4 plays DVDs. Well I guess that confirms it. PS4 also isn't a true gaming system... /s
I thought my kinect was the only remote i needed?
i would not get this unless the xbone's one guide got a robust update/feature addition. i love the kinect voice commands to switch from channel to channel, but if i just want to scroll through the channels i have to revert back to the comcast remote and guide. also, having a number pad and "watch tv" button would encourage me to get this.
look, i have no problem with xbox one, but if the console had launched without the kinect would there have been an uproar to have it included in the box without the option too buy it separately?
Didn't kinect ship with every xbox one?

All of the stupid comments here...its a remote for gods sake. You guys could bicker over anything! Besides to put an end to the whole kinect argument, some people prefer not to talk to the tv when people are sleeping, on the phone etc. Its called options, and it really isn't a big deal.
i agree with ya clown. this site has people who will pick through the crappiest article to hopefully prove that their way of thinking is either the right way, or relevant.
My Harmony works great with XB1
Love the Harmony remotes! Had the 360 version for almost seven years before some of the buttons eventually wore out.
My 360 one is still going strong. I passed that one on to my gf when I upgraded to the Harmony Touch.
but but but kinect dont want buttons?? but why?? but but
So we don't need Kinect as MS said. People want buttons. I already have a TV remote, thanks
The removal of kinect is on the books!
