Reddit Thread Proves Microsoft Angers Fans Again

Angry Reddit users bash Microsoft for the Kinect-less functioning Xbox One.

An angry thread began recently on the social website Reddit. The discussion was in response to Xbox Live Vice President Marc Whitten announcing that Kinect will not be required to be connected for the Xbox One to function. This statement led consumers to believe that Microsoft was phasing out the Kinect and leading Xbox One down a path of “stale” and static gaming.

Putting Out the Fire

Later, to calm the storm, Microsoft put out a statement saying that the new Xbox One bundle will indeed include the Kinect. They also stated that they are not planning on releasing a cheaper bundle that would not include the Kinect as had previously been speculated.

Shocking Decisions Microsoft

Recently there have been many changes in regard to the Xbox One release such as:

  • The Xbox One will not require internet to function and
  • Microsoft is cancelling the release of the Xbox One in some countries.
Is Kinect Really the Issue?

Is this newest outrage really about the Kinect or are fans just tired of Microsoft being so fickle?
