    How could you not have kinect? Comes in every box! What I see here is MS getting ready for a kinectless SKU but I didnt expect them to do a 180 on that so I could be wrong....?

    I have to say that it does make me think a Kinectless sku could be in the cards.

    I don't see this as a sign of the Kinect-less SKU coming. Anyone can just use the standard controller, really. I bet it's just an optional peripheral to make a few bucks off

    So kinect is there for hands free control yet they release a remote? Uhh...what am i missing here? Apparently MS is lacking faith in Kinect.

    MS have already showed their lack of faith in Kinect when they decided to pass the cost of it onto their customers.

    This simple, yet powerful remote is designed to help you listen, watch and switch among experiences instantly.
    isn't that what kinect is supposed to do?

    As soon as you pick up the remote, the motion-activated backlit buttons illuminate
    honestly the coolest feature by far.

    if i had a xbox one i would defiantly get this. i've used kinect voice commands, and ps4's voice commands. and honestly, i dont like talking to my consoles. it makes me feel really weird. also a more traditional remote is much better for media control. i've had the ps3 bd remote for years and i love it, great for movies, netflix, music, ect.

    Isn't it the kinect that recognises the remote rather than the xbox one?

    So it won't be kinect less?......or am I wrong on that?

    Maybe it's me but I'd feel a tit sat there barking commands at the TV when I was trying to watch a film with the family, maybe this is for normal folk?

    Xbox360 had a remote too. It's just another option for those who don't want to use the controller or kinect.

    Awesome, great when you're watching in the dark and need to pause for a wee or whatever.
