    After a Microsoft-hosted London event around the Xbox One reveal, Xbox's UK marketing director Harvey Eagle has said that the console will not function without Kinect connected.

    "Kinect does require to be connected to Xbox One in all cases, yes," he said.

    Asked whether the Xbox One will accommodate people who perhaps play in their bedroom rather than their living room, Eagle replied: "Yes, absolutely.

    We use the living room almost as a moniker - that's where we assume the best screen is in the house.

    But if you like to play in any other room in the house, the Xbox One will deliver the same quality of experience whatever the environment."

    As anyone who's ever tried to play with Kinect in an enclosed area knows, the current technology simply doesn't support it - which means that Xbox One's new Kinect sensor must be significantly different if it will work in any room in the house.

    Just cause the sensor is attached doesn't mean you have to use it ;)

    Exactly, I'd use it for voice commands but not for moving and stuff.
