Microsoft Has No Plans to Release the Xbox One Without Kinect

Posted on July 25, 2013 AT 02:56am

Microsoft has shot down recent rumors that it is planning on releasing a version of Xbox One without the Kinect sensor next summer.

Yesterday, Inside Gaming Daily claimed that the company planned to release a version of its next-gen console without the camera next summer. A Microsoft spokesperson has since rubbished this rumor (via Kotaku):

“We have no plans to introduce an Xbox One without Kinect. We believe in Kinect and the value it brings to both games and entertainment, and believe $499 is a great value for what consumers receive with their Xbox One.”

Xbox One will be available this November priced at $499.
