  • Cons: Kinect integration and voice commands have been de-emphasized to the point of almost being completely dropped. Current backward compatibility list is very small.

Microsoft Xbox One ( without Kinect)

CNET
6 June 2014
  • Summary: The cheaper, no-Kinect version of the Xbox One gives buyers a better deal by eliminating the one part of the console they probably didn't want to begin with -- but the PS4 remains a compelling alternative.
  • Pros: This more affordable Xbox One bundle drops the Kinect and matches the price of the PS4. Microsoft has also killed the paid Xbox Live Gold requirement to access entertainment apps.
  • Cons: The Xbox One's dashboard is still confusing at times and the PS4 generally delivers slightly better graphics and performance on multiplatform games so far. Selection of must-have titles is still weak compared to that of previous generation consoles.
