Yep - do do that on occasion. Just seems crazy when you consider what MS claim Kinect and the One is all about.

As you say, smart phone / tablet apps are the future.

I see Kinnect-type controls in some form being some sort of future but non-gamers aren't into it at the moment - they've all got Ipads etc.

Once TV with gesture control becomes the norm, it's dead. So that leaves the gamers...

I thought it could be done using Bing? i vaguely recall reading something about it somewhere. Then again I could be mistaken

Well, while you've all been moaning about Kinect , I've been building a shelf for mine today - knocked one up out of a clip in shelf system and some bolts to stick it into the vesa holes on the back of my tv.
Works a treat, and has improved the kinect experience no end - picks up on my gestures instantly now and Kinect Sports actually works.

XB1 works without kinnect. You don't need to take it out of the box.

they put so much into developing it, even if they removed it, you would still be "paying for it"

Hope the new update is not too far away. Pain in the backside trying to do something as simple as checking to see who is online.

Yeah but we have no idea how much. Given they somehow managed to spank $100M on the new controller design attributing retail price just on component cost is half the story.

100 quid. That's how much they 'charged' me for an advance replacement.

I bet it costs them closer to Ł150. The box sans-Kinect can't cost more than the PS4, the parts just don't cost as much.

I imagine what it costs them and what people would be prepared to pay for it are quite different figures. Maybe not in MS's favour.

Sounds good. Addressing at least 2 of the major bug-bears.

I just want them to put the option back in to play voice chat through the speakers, then I'll be a happy panda


EDIT: Battery indicator looks like a battery

Battery indicator has been missed.

Online notifications is the other main thing I hope they have sorted. At least the option to turn them on or off, or create a list for who you want notifications for.
