In response to lackluster sales and a large number of requests from would-be Xbox One purchasers, Microsoft has unveiled a cheaper Xbox One that will be sold without the Kinect.
The new model of Xbox One will retail at $399 and will hit the market on June 9. the Kinect will be available separately sometime later this fall. This news comes hand in hand with the announcement that a variety of paid for services will no longer be locked behind Xbox Live like Netflix, Twitch, HBO GO, and various sports apps.
What do you think? Will this and the reversal on used games/always online be enough to bring in more customers for Microsoft?
