Games Xbox chief product officer Marc Whitten:

That said, like online, the console will still function if Kinect isn’t plugged in, although you won’t be able to use any feature or experience that explicitly uses the sensor.

The Xbox One used to require Kinect. Now it doesn't. Good move, obviously, but it does raise the question: whatever the hell was this company thinking? Microsoft really seems to have lost all its marbles - Windows 8, Windows Phone, and now Xbox One. Messy, messy, messy.

That wasn't what I was responding to, in the reply to me you just made.

How about you actually respond to my points, that I made in my original response.

Anyway as that is unlikely to happen. The features of the upcoming Xbox are useful if you find them as such. If they aren't for you, you are unlikely to be interested.

Instead of being a dick, how about we have a discussion?!
