Whats funny is how many people in the armed service are NOT going to get a XBone due to the kinect. Another piece of add on trash that no one will want to deal with.

Microsoft 180'd their "Mandatory Kinect" policy. You can now unplug it and the console will run without it. If the game you are playing requires it, then you'll be prompted to plug it back in. I imagine most of the shooters popular in LAN setups will have optional Kinect controls, so it shouldn't be a problem in military bases now. What a clusterfuck scenario that was.

There are many worse nick names out there, this one is pretty enjoyable and clever I think.

This is exactly why MS doesn't like it. Because they're all about serious and stupid these days instead of enjoyable and clever.

If I was at Microsoft I'd be worrying more about what gamers may or may not love, since the PR for this machine thus far has been awful.

Seems to me everything is riding on Forza 5. That seems to be the one game people keep mentioning. Everything else can be played on existing systems or on the PS4 or people don't care. Edit* Dead Rising 3, forgot about that but I think that game looks like shit.

So no pressure guys, heh, wouldn't it be funny if that got delayed?

I feel like my chances of seeing a price drop on the Xbox One are good before Titanfall comes out so I'm 99.99% sure I'll be waiting to buy a 180.

I can see MS riding this thing until Titanfall releases though expecting all the naysayers to finally jump on board when that game arrives. (price be damned!) I hope the holiday sales force their hand sooner but we'll have to wait and see.

Plus if the PC version works well on a controller...the fuck am I buying a 180 for at all then?

More meaningless PR and platitudes, Microsoft seems incapable of relating to actual human beings. I'm not even opposed to motion tech itself, they just really need to stop trying to shoehorn it everywhere with no logic or reason. When you do that you end up with Ryse and the developers ended up gutting it.

How MS would respond: That's a great point and we're glad you brought it up. We're so excited that you and everyone else is so excited for all the upcoming Kinect games. It's going to revolutionize gaming and home entertainment. You'll wonder how you ever did anything without it!

Its possible quite a few developers are really excited about it. But it would also be more likely because they will have one thing in their head and find out it just doesn't work causing the Kinect to be worthless. It wasn't as used on XBox 360 because it wasn't always there.

Just like how so many were excited about the touch screen on the DS (that in the end, wasn't used most of the time because it wasn't what was imagined), the 3DS 3d function, the WiiMote which didn't work as well as hoped and wasn't well utilized well in most games, etc... (not to pick on Nintendo...

Microsoft secures Xbone.com domain.

Funny, funny.

How is "Xbone" insulting? It is derived perfectly from Xbox One, nothing else I think? There are many worse nick names out there, this one is pretty enjoyable and clever I think.

Meh, I still think the right choice was leaving it in and integral to the system. Despite MS' crappy PR it'll get far better support than the PS4 half baked equivalent that nobody with bother buying just by being there, all the time. Even ignoring the motion control stuff voice control and camera/video calls stuff is handy. From what I've seen of it in action its a big improvement on the v1 device anyway and there's no reason that GOOD use of it can't be made even for grumpy old blues news readers

That headline just made me gigglesnort. How about we get some actual devs come up and say "OMG KINECT IS TEH BESTEST!" rather than yet more ballmer platitudes about why everyone just fucking loves Microsoft products, and don't pay any attention to the fact we have less than 3% market share.

What a bunch of fucking morons.
