    It's not complicated: Plenty of people want to buy the XB1 to enjoy it and its games. So, naturally, they're not exactly pleased at the prospect of having to spend an extra $100 for something they deem unnecessary or useless. Microsoft is forcing people to but the Kinect, not the XB1.

    That is a decision that you have made. You don't HAVE to play the exclusives, you WANT to.

    Personally, I think the exclusives suck. There is not one of them that interest me. But that's my opinion.

    No, but how many threads and how many times are people going to post complaining about this? I think people here understand.

    It's time to kill a horse and beat that one for a while. Maybe about MS changing their policies.

    Correct. It's my decision ultimately. That doesn't remove the disappointment aspect of it. Kinect is the gun, and it's being held to my head.

    All in all, I'm getting the system, pros and cons all in fold.

    I never said I don't want the system. I don't want kinect ffs, and I have to pay for it if I want the console.

    If that cigarette lighter made a dent into the actual price, then I'd complain about that.

    If I bought a Wii U for AC3 why the $#@! do I want a sensor bar?

    $#@! I could $#@! about my favourite chips not coming in a pack half the size.
    I could $#@! about a particular car coming only with passenger Airbags when I only drive it.

    You know what, the seller gets to offer you a product.

    Don't see value in what he sells you? Don't buy it.
    That's the way the free economy works.

    That's a bit different mynd. Is the cost of the Wii U being driven up by the sensor bar? Retailing for $9.00... I'm going to make a pretty easy assumption here.

    Yep, complain but it's still not going anywhere, and it's still something you pay for and won't use, but comes in handy. Just like paying for homeowners insurance and plenty other things.

    Of course it is. Maybe by a only ten dollars, but of course it makes a difference.

    What does any of that have to do with kinect being in the box, and driving up the price? I never said anything was going anywhere. I'm simply saying that it's $#@! for Microsoft to force consumers to pay for Kinect if they want the system. It's simple math really. Home owners insurance? wtf does that have to do with Kinect being in the box with the console? Home owners insurance isn't forced on your if you paid for your house. It's an OPTION.

    I never used more than one USB at a time on my PS3, nor the wifi chipset. Sony didn't have to charge up the paying price for those features I wouldn't use. I also didn't need the rumble in those controllers. I call shenanigans.

    See how silly that is? There's a common sense factor involved here. There's a difference between the Wii-U sensor and the 100+ dollar Kinect being forced onto the consumer. It's not the same thing.

    Nothing is being forced on you.
    MS makes a games console.

    Part of that console is that it uses a controller.
    It also comes with a Kinect sensor camera, that doubles up as an IR blaster.

    They are offering it to you.

    They aren't "forcing" you to buy it.

    They are saying this is our product offering.

    And for all this, the XBO is STILL cheaper than I paid for my original Xbox360.

    Lol by them packaging it with the Console and not having any other options is in essence forcing it

    Cheaper than the 360...more expensive than the competition

    (Channeling greatkoaster)...this out going Gen, all ms and the fans where yelling where options this options that! What the hell happened to that meme?

    Exactly. (Except I don't plan on buying an Xbone until there is a significant price drop, probably in 3-4 years.)

    Correcting myself here:
    http://www.geekzone.co.nz/content.asp?contentid=5499

    You may have gotten it cheaper, but the XBone isn't cheaper than the 360 - not at launch prices. E.g. I can't compare PS3 price reductions prices, to that of the PS4, and say that the PS4 is expensive.

    Definitely getting one (will not buy it myself), and I will certainly enjoy Kinect to the fullest (and the hdmi pass through)
