Exactly, gamers who want kinect will pay the extra and does who dont like the idea of kinect now have the option to get the console. i dont understand how having more options is a bad thing. now that the xbox one is now the same price as the ps4 get ready for more attention to resolution and FPS

There will still be games made that require kinect. so if you want that game then you buy that sku or get the accessory by itself.

A lower cost of entry isnt a bad thing. Especially if games like ryse and titanfall can be played without kinect. Even dead rising 3 can be played without it.

some will criticize MS for not sticking to their original plan but then again the original plan was something people didnt want to take the time to really research. It involved some neat ideas but the threat of 'DRM' turned people off.

Change is good when it promotes growth for the better. This kind of change has that potential so long as those who said they 'would get xb1 IF it didnt come with kinect' stick to their word. otherwise there was no genuine interest to begin with.

MS is just looking to broaden their appeal with choices. It worked for the 360 so it's likely they are trying the same approach for the xb1.

I thought Kinect was here to stay for a little while. Turns out I was wrong, DEAD wrong.

I can admit that. The thing is I'm not too surprised because Phil Spencer never really cared for Kinect the way Don Mattrick did.

So its not a complete shocker he bundled it.

This is living proof that Kinect is not as valuable as many (including myself) thought.

Lol good for MS and future Xbox owners.

It's good because it allows for the console to be bought for 100 dollars less.

Options are good but I can't imagine my x1 without the kinect but that's me my experience won't be the same for everyone..
