Microsoft recently announced a new Kinect-Less SKU for Xbox One that will retail for $400. This announcement was rather surprising and seems premature as it could be well suited for E3. This also angered a lot of fans who brought the original Xbox One bundle with Kinect, and were feeling betrayed by Microsoft’s 180 regarding their policies, especially since they promised a lot of cool stuff using Kinect. These latest sales result for Xbox One definitely show why Microsoft got desperate and decided to announce an Xbox One SKU to price match the PS4. Still, it is hard to say anything about the sales success of this new SKU.
