Microsoft Announces $399 Xbox One Without Kinect

Just announced this morning, Microsoft has confirmed that an Xbox One without Kinect will be coming to market. This is absolutely huge news considering the sales numbers of the Xbox One in comparison to the PlayStation 4. It’s been a long standing stance of consumers that Microsoft could drop the Kinect and sell the console for $399.99 instead of its current $499.99 price.

Microsoft is responding to all of those people who want more choices when it comes to the Xbox One and even though 80% of Xbox One users are actively using Kinect, they understand not everyone wants one. (although that “Xbox On” command is pretty sweet) So it’s officially coming, a Kinect-less Xbox One console will be coming to stores for $399.99! But those who wish to have the Kinect can still purchase the current Xbox One bundle for $499.99. But don’t fret if you’ve purchased the $399.99 version and you decide that you want a Kinect, Microsoft will be selling a separate sensor for the Xbox One for about $100 which is set to come out later this fall. Microsoft wants to be absolutely clear that their vision of the future still very much revolves around the Kinect, so expect to see more titles that use the Kinect coming in the future.

Microsoft is aiming to give the consumers what they want, and it looks like their sales numbers haven’t been up to snuff, at least compared to their largest competitor. I imagine that this price drop will see huge sales this year which is perfect for the upcoming lineup of titles already announced and those to be announced at E3 2014. Just check out the rumored topics for both Sony and Microsoft at E3 2014.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was
    wondering what all is needed to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Kudos

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She
    never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

    I think everything published was actually very logical.
    However, what about this? suppose you were to write
    a awesome headline? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added something that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Microsoft

    You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they
    write news headlines to grab people to click.
    You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab readers interested about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
