    XboxOne Buy an Xbox One for £315 without Kinect from CEX UK

    As passed on by [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], UK retailer [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is now only selling the Xbox One without Kinect, in what seems a fairly obvious bid to drive down the price ahead of this summer's official Kinect-less Xbox One bundle. You can buy a secondhand console in a box for £340, or £315 if you do without the box. For reference, the official Kinect-less bundle will cost £349.99, $499 AUD or $399.99 when it hits shelves on 9th June. CEX also has Kinect on sale for £20 (with a trade-in value of £5). Microsoft plans to sell Kinect separately too later this year, but has yet to announce how much it'll cost to buy one first-hand.

    It's one thing payting a premium for a console on the day of release, but it's a bit of a kick in the bollocks when the Kinect was compulsary and now it isn't.

    For those of us that were early adopters, I don't think that this move is going to help drive the Kinect forward

    I had to buy another Xbox One and to be honest when I looked at the packs available it was more economic to buy the pack with a Kinect, Titanfall and Wolfenstein than go for a model without a Kinect, I also find the Kinect very useful and far better than the previous one.

    I know I have to be quiet when I go in my son's bedroom when he's playing Dead Rising 3!

    I've said this before but when they dropped the original Xbox price by a 100 quid quickly after launch they compensated launch adopters with a either 2 games and a controller or a game and a second title or a pad.

    It helped the blow massively.

    Nothing of the sort seems on offer now.

    I must have missed this completely. How does one go about taking advantage of this compensation? I bought a Day 1 for my son for Christmas.
