Kinectless Xbox One Boosts Sales

Through its Xbox Wire news site, Microsoft has announced that the reduced price of the Xbox One without Kinect has seen “sales of Xbox One more than double in the US compared to sales in May.” This figure comes from “Internal data based on retail calendar and sold through numbers.”

An Xbox One, minus Kinect, purchase option was announced in May and officially went on sale from June 9 for $399 in the United States.

  1. Those “doubled sales” compared to May sound good when claimed, the catch is XOne’s sales back then were crushing to the extent PS managed to nearly quadruple (!) its figures (according to VG Chartz). Still, it’s good MS finally dropped the ball and chain Xbox had in the obligatory Kinect and as a PlayStation supporter I sincerely hope it helps the Microsoft’s machine sales gain momentum because if there’s one thing certain about all that it’s that Sony cares about its consumers as long as it has a solid competitor breathing down its neck, which Microsoft has glaringly failed to remain in this gen thus far.
