Microsoft has announced a new version of the Xbox One that will be available next month without the Kinect. This Kinect-less version will be available for $399 making it a better matchup against the $399 Playstation 4. Is this a marketing move to sell more units or is Microsoft finally having doubts about Kinect’s relevance in todays video games? It could also be the trouble that Microsoft has had with the voice commands working over-seas. Either way, I think this move has been a long time coming for some people and probably will help Microsoft get more Xbox Ones into consumer’s homes. It was stated that a standalone Kinect would be available later this fall.
