RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

Microsoft Reaffirms Kinect-Less Xbox One Isn't Coming

Posted on Tuesday, February 25 @ 04:48:59 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Many gamers, including myself, have lamented the fact that every Xbox One comes bundled with the Kinect. Microsoft is pushing its motion-sensing, voice-recognizing peripheral hardcore, and has no intention of letting up.

"[A Kinect-less Xbox One] is not in our plans at all,"  Xbox UK marketing chief Harvey Eagle told Eurogamer"As we've said from the very beginning, we believe Kinect is an absolutely integral part of the Xbox One experience."

The company is sticking to its guns with this one, even though it puts Xbox One at a price disadvantage when compared to PlayStation 4. The Big M believes the value of Kinect is worth the higher price tag. 


"Look at all the thousands and thousands of game clips that have been posted by gamers to Upload Studio, of their gaming highlights, captured by speaking the words 'Xbox record that', which has already become part of Xbox vocabulary," Eagle added. "It's a really great example of how Kinect makes the experience on Xbox One even better."

Do you think Microsoft should offer a Kinect-less option for those of us that don't want the camera?
