Another Microsoft reversal; Kinect no longer required to operate Xbox One

Microsoft have revealed that their new Xbox One console no longer requires Kinect to function.

Xbox Corporate Vice President Marc Whitten has confirmed during IGN’s latest Ask Microsoft Anything that owners of the new console will now be able to use all the core functions of the machine without the sensor being connected. Of course, with Kinect connectivity no longer being mandatory, it means that if gamers decide not to use the new sensor, then new features – such as player identification and voice commands – will be unavailable.

This turnaround is the latest when it comes to the Xbox One, with Microsoft previously reversing it’s stance on used games and always-online connection.

The Xbox One is expected to be released in November.
