    There are no plans to drop Kinect from Xbox One, Microsoft has reaffirmed.

    Speaking to Eurogamer, Xbox UK marketing chief Harvey Eagle said, “[A Kinect-less Xbox One] is not in our plans at all. As we’ve said from the very beginning, we believe Kinect is an absolutely integral part of the Xbox One experience.”

    “Look at all the thousands and thousands of game clips that have been posted by gamers to Upload Studio, of their gaming highlights, captured by speaking the words ‘Xbox record that’, which has already become part of Xbox vocabulary. It’s a really great example of how Kinect makes the experience on Xbox One even better,” he elaborated.

    In addition to this, Eagle also added that more Kinect-oriented games will be announced at this June’s E3.

    “Obviously E3 is a key moment in time where we’ll make a bunch of announcements about what’s coming up in the months ahead of E3, and particularly for Christmas. So expect to hear much more from us at E3,” he said.

    Microsoft recently announced that a Titanfall Xbox One bundle is coming to the UK, along with a £30 price cut. Retailers including GameStop are already undercutting that price.
