Xbox One

Developers have chimed in on the announcement of a new Xbox One SKU without Kinect, and no, they don’t all agree on what to think of it.

Many developers were positive on the move, both for fans and for Microsoft’s business. In fact, the console is now $ 50 cheaper in Australia, so there are definite advantages for the move.

However, there was a lot of hesitation from devs as well. For one, it’s trouble for devs who are making Kinect games, and of course devs who were planning games are thinking twice. It’s a step back for motion controls, meaning motion control games like Fantasia are placed in a compromised situation. It also makes the Xbox One lose its differentiation from the PS4.

Whatever your take on the matter, we think these tweets from gaming veteran Benjamin Cousins provide some much needed insight:
