CEX Employees Rip the Hated Kinect Out of Xbox One Boxes, to Try and Shift Them

By Gary Cutlack on at

With Microsoft's Kinect-free Xbox One yet to hit the high street, retailer Computer Exchange has seized the initiative -- pulling the unpopular Kinect webcam controller from existing Xbox One boxes in order to sell the standalone units a little cheaper.

The deals on offer see an unboxed Xbox One without the disliked camera attachment on sale for £315, or a boxed one for £340. Sadly for Microsoft, Sony's PS4 is already being discounted to the £299 mark online, keeping the new, official Kinect-less £349 Xbox One the more expensive option for the foreseeable future.
