After Microsoft released a Kinectless Xbox One Bundle, the company is standing strong. This week, in an interview with Edge Magazine, Xbox head Phil Spencer attempted to reassure gamers that the Kinect was still part of Microsoft's grand plan.
Below is what he said during the interview:
"It’s not abandoned. We just developed Upload Studio 2.0, which has green screening that you can do with Kinect. We’ll continue to build functionality to make it a valuable part of the ecosystem. That said, price point’s really important for the console – we saw that over the holidays in the UK and US, where we did well when we dropped the price, which was great. And I want to make sure consumers have choice on how much they value the functionality of Kinect when they buy a console".
