Turns out Microsoft will in fact be selling Xbone's without Kinect, knocking it's price down to about $399.
My anti-Microsod moanin' aside, I find my prediction, that the Nextbox will not enjoy notably increased sales from this occurrence, to be sound. How many people who've decided their purchase based on price point already bought a PS4 or a U? Very many, I reckon. Said budget gamers ain't lookin' for a second potato.
Well, maybe some'a the U owners will go the ol' Wii60 route if they ain't purchased their second console yet. Doubtful it'l be a notable amount.
