Even though they've been adamant that the Xbox One would never come without Kinect, Microsoft has just announced a version without it. Starting June 9th, you can buy a Kinectless Xbox One for $399.



In other Xbox news, Microsoft is also removing the Gold requirement from streaming services like Netflix and Hulu Plus, meaning customers won't have to pay twice to watch streaming video on their Xbox.

In a AMA on IGN with Marc Whitten, Chief Xbox One Platform Architect stated,

You have the ability to completely turn the sensor off in your settings. When in this mode, the sensor is not collecting any information. Any functionality that relies on voice, video, gesture or more won't work. We still support using it for IR blasting in this mode. You can turn the sensor back on at any time through settings, and if you enter into a required Kinect experience (like Kinect Sports Rivals for instance), you'll get a message asking if you want to turn the sensor back on in order to continue.
