Xbox One No Longer Requires Kinect to Function Empty

In addition to reversing its used game DRM policies for Xbox One, Microsoft has revealed that the console will no longer require Kinect to function. In our latest Ask Microsoft Anything, Xbox Corporate Vice President Marc Whitten revealed that Xbox One owners will be able to use all of the console's core functions regardless of whether the new Kinect sensor is connected. Naturally, many of the tentpole features of the new Kinect, such as player identification, voice commands, etc., will be disabled as a result, but players will still be able to play games and access entertainment content.


The news represents yet another significant revision to the company's next-gen strategy. Shortly after E3 in June, Microsoft announced that it had revised its plans to restrict used games and require a constant online connection in order for the Xbox One to function following backlash from the fan community. What remained unclear, however, was whether owners would still be obligated to have the Kinect sensor connected and, perhaps more importantly, what would happen if the peripheral became damaged or ceased to function.

Most importantly, Microsoft's decision to abandon mandatory Kinect connectivity opens the doors for a cheaper, Kinect-free version of the system.

At this point, the ONLY reason I'd prefer the PS4 is cause of the 100$ off.

Smart move, but they should have been smart enough to never have done it in the first place.

Exactly.

It's like they were all really fucking high when sitting down and brainstorming for ideas about this thing.

If the backlash wasnt as high as it turned out to be, Microsoft would of changed nothing and we'd have the original concept right now.

I was actually surprised they did change anything. I thought they would have still went through with it, because people will buy the thing regardless.

Eventually they will release a console with all this crap attached to it. They've already shown they want to, so it's rather inevitable imo.
