I take what Mr Molyneux says with a very "large" pinch of salt.
I'm one that still hopes though they never make Kinect optional but I'm not convinced that I will get my wish, who knows for sure, I bet Microsoft don't know at the moment.
Be interesting though, I mean can get a Xbox One/Kinect with game for around £400 now, depending where you look so if a Xbox One on it's own releases, what are we talking? £299, maybe even cheaper? how would Sony respond, can they even respond?
I'm still happy to have paid what I did for both consoles, I can never wait but a year from now it makes you wonder how much I could of saved ( for both ) if I had waited lol
Official, Kinect here to stay? I personally hope so.
I think of a tweet Mr Spencer put out not so long back when he took over as head of Xbox ..
"I want to give the gamers what they want" ..
Trouble is why there's loads that do want Kinect to stay, there's still loads out that there don't, probably a lot waiting for a Kinect-less version whilst hoping for even further price drops before they take the plunge.
I know Microsoft have said time and time again, "Kinect is here to stay" .. with any company though, saying is one thing, doing it is something else. Having said that, my "hunch" is that it will stay, who can say for 100% certainty though? I doubt even Microsoft
know what the future holds.
I'm not bothered about killer Kinect games really, I like how it functions to control the console, profile sign ins etc. For me it's not a peripheral it's integral to my enjoyment and my user experience.
. Im not mad I was replying to Votes who's post has disappeared??
Kinect is just so good. Why would anyone want an XBox One without it. Nothing better than watching a movie, getting up, Saying "XBox Pause" go put kettle on the say "XBox Play". Now I'm waiting for my cup of tea instaed of looking for, and waiting for
the power up on controller.
