“Xbox One is Kinect”…
Speaking to CVG, Microsoft corporate vice president Phil Harrison revealed that the Xbox One will never be sold without Kinect.
Harrison stated: "Xbox One is Kinect. They are not separate systems. An Xbox One has chips, it has memory, it has Blu-ray, it has Kinect, and it has a controller. These are all part of the platform ecosystem."
Speaking on the game's voice control features, he added: "I have an Xbox One at home, and being able to walk in and say 'Xbox on,' and for the system to recognize me, launch and load my profile, and put my choices of content on the font page is a very magical experience. It makes you think about your relationship with technology in a slightly different way. It's personal. It makes you think, 'I wish more devices would do this'."
