Its too late asshole. You can't reverse the slower ram and the weaker GPU.

Kinectless Xbox One. Remove Netflix/Hulu/etc from being behind the XBL pay wall. Get rid of microtransactions from full priced games. Give XBL subscribers better free games and actually compete against PlayStation Plus. Get rid of ads for XBL Gold members.

Let's say they did drop the Kinect. You guys think they'd price at $350? I doubt it costs more than the PS4 to make. With the $399 price tag, Sony are making like $28 off of each one. What do you guys think the kinectless SKU should cost?

They would lose money because of how much they invested in the kinect. I'm speaking out of my ass here but the kinect is a pretty impressive piece of technology (regardless of what it brings to the table to gaming) and they invested a lot more in it than they did the console itself. We probably won't ever see a kinectless Xbone.

I believe in the grand scheme if they can absolutely perfect kinect we're going to see it implemented in all Microsoft software and tech. Imagine simply naming and speaking to your pc no typing, scrolling, or copy n pasting needed.

You're confusing that with the Xbone. Microsoft makes a profit on each Xbone sold, the PS4 and WiiU are being sold at a loss.

Gaming should have always been the only focus, not social media or anything else.

Consoles are only getting more diverse as time goes on and I've not been liking the outcome.

I wish Xbox the best of luck and kinectless xbox one might be a seller for me.

They think that consoles can't compete anymore without such features. What they seem to fail to realize is there are far better and cheaper device for doing those things to begin with. Only Nintendo seems to kinda get that, even though they take it a bit far.

Hardly, this gen has only begun. Phil Spencer is the leader they need at Xbox. One that is in touch with the gamers, someone that knows what the gamers want.

Too late, Phil. A shitty XBL, too much kinect, and less games; you gotta take care of some shit man. I have my hopes up with this guy.
