Microsoft has confirmed it will begin selling Xbox One without a Kinect sensor in the box. A standalone Kinect sensor for Xbox One will go on sale this autumn.
The removal of Kinect from the basic Xbox One package means that the console will now be sold in the UK at £349 and in the US at $399, rather than the original $499.
Microsoft has in the past refused to offer Xbox One without Kinect included, although previously U-turned on the fact that the device needed to be plugged in at all times.
The company has detailed changes to the Xbox Live Games with Gold programme, which will begin for Xbox One in June with two titles - Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Halo: Spartan Assault. The two Xbox 360 titles will be Dark Souls and Charlie Murder, and as a one-off bonus, a third title - Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition.
It means that with a Gold subscription you will now presumably get four games free per month - two for Xbox 360 and two for Xbox One.
