    Another reversal for Microsoft, this time with Kinect. Today, they’v confirmed that the Xbox One will not have to have the Kinect sensor connected in order for the new console to function.

    IGN got the news via their AMA with Xbox Corporate Vice President Marc Whitten, where he 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.

    This is the latest reversal in Microsoft’s controversial Xbox One rules – they started by changing their policies on DRMs, then changed their self-publishing rules, and now they’ve changed the Kinect rules.

    Your right not ONE damn thing you get we showed you :sarcastic_hand:
    This was all planned from the get go, Ms have kept there challenged named console in peoples mouths since it was announced, How can anyone support such CatFlaps who don't stand there ground. It's called the Xbox One cause you're not getting ONE thing we told you about at the reveal or at E3 :eek:

    Every two weeks since the console was announced, there was rumors of a reversal or a added item, then followed with a confirmed report, of the rumor, a few days later ;) . This was just a marketing plan from Ms. :big_boss: Sony still has the same console that was announced. :locomotive:

    it only proves Microsoft are listening to their customers and ARE willing to change things.

    Better company IMO.
