The Xbox One will get a new price option on June 9th. Microsoft will be selling the Xbox One without the Kinect for $399. I think that this is a really good decision and I hope that it will increase Xbox One sales. I have a Kinect for my Xbox 360 and I haven’t used it in months. It is an interesting piece of technology but it is not the future of gaming. I wouldn’t be surprised if the most used feature for the Kinect is the Voice Commands. The Kinect, like the Wii Remote is very gimmicky and it will never have a strong presence in the gaming industry. It is interesting to see Microsoft back away from the Kinect especially since they were pushing it so much. I am happy to see Microsoft go with this new pricing option. What do you think of the Kinectless Xbox One?
