    Following the reversal of the DRM policies and the Kinect-less Xbox One after that, Microsoft has stated today at Develop that it no longer plans to make Xbox One units double as development kits.

    Something which never actually materialised since Microsoft promised it before launch.

    Martin Fuller, of Xbox Advanced Technology Group, said this to the press attending Develop today, “As far as I’m aware there are no plans. I’m not aware of the reason why we didn’t manage to do that.

    “We were in the early stages of Xbox One looking at the idea of a retail kit that could be turned into a development kit, and vice versa. In the end, although that was a very admirable goal, it hasn’t happened unfortunately. Can’t tell you the specifics of exactly why not.”

    So there you have it, are you disappointed by this decision?

    This was one of the things that made me want an Xbox One, I hope they don't scrap the idea.
