From The Motley Fool website. - Tuesday, January 21, 2014 8:07 PM ( #1 )
I thought this was interesting. wwwDOTfoolDOTcom/investing/general/2014/01/11/a-kinect-less-xbox-one-is-in-the-cards-for-2014.aspx Anyone think that there's any truth to this? A kinectless Xbox One would be a day one purchase for me and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

It is never going to happen. I'll eat my shoe if it does.

  Hmmmmm... the Motley Fool is a very reputable site. It is a possibility.

Just because it never will doesn't mean it shouldn't.

It shouldn't. I don't want to see the separation between Kinect vs non-Kinect users. It will just discourage devs from putting Kinect functions on their games. Like on BF4, the lean function and the head tracking.

I don't know whether this is true or not and I understand that it's merely an analyst's speculation but, like someone said, the Motley Fool is a fairly reputable site. Plus, there's no reason for developers NOT to develop games for Kinect if there's a Kinectless version. If the games are worth getting, people will buy the peripheral to play the games.

People who say they'll get an XBONE when it doesn't have kinnect are just making excuses for not being able to afford one. Get over it. Kinnect doesn't bother me one bit. Never has. If $100 is all the difference, try getting a job, you could make $100 in one day. $500 in one week. Stop depending on your parents.

FTFY. 


I don't think people are "making excuses for not being able to afford one". A ton of people just got burned on the 360's Kinect or they just don't like voice and motion stuff and don't feel that it's worth their extra $100. I'm sure if these people actually wanted Kinect they could (and would be able to) pay the extra $100.

There are products for people who don't want the Kinect, it's called the PS4, the WII U, the gaming PC, the OUYA... The list goes on.

You don't have ten posts and you're already making a label for yourself. I think you and Kon will get along perfectly.

Even if I had a billion dollars in the bank I still would not want Kinect.

Amazing piece of hardware that console conservatives can't accept. It's like they want to be stuck in the 80's.

why group everyone that isnt interested in kinect as a 'console conservative'? Why assume they want to be stuck in the 80s? 


you're making a lot of assumptions and labeling people falsely.

Just like how you said you'd cut your...   yeah. You never went through with that. 



Also, I'm w/ phamD. Kinect is pretty much useless. I wouldn't want sony selling me that PS3 Camera nor Move. Same thing applies to Kinect.

My cousin bought a kinect, and after two months it's lying around somewhere in the basement. It's not even plugged in anymore. I'm not sure why you  are so obsessed with possibly the worst/useless part of Xbox One bundle.
