Xbox One Will Still Work Without Kinect

Xbox One will work without Kinect plugged in, Microsoft's Xbox Chief Product Officer Marc Whitten has confirmed, noting that you can still use the console without the sensor connected, but you won't be able to access the features that utilise Kinect. Obviously.

"Xbox One is designed to work with Kinect plugged in. It makes gaming better in many ways – from the ability to say “Xbox On” and get right to your personalized homescreen, to the ability to control your TV through voice, Smartglass and more," said Whitten.

Whitten continued extolling the many advantages of Kinect, like using it for voice commands in games and what not. "That said, like online, the console will still function if Kinect isn’t plugged in, although you won’t be able to use any feature or experience that explicitly uses the sensor," he concluded.

If you really don't want to use Kinect with Xbox One then, you don't have to, although you can reactivate it at any time if you turn it off. "You can turn the sensor back on at any time through settings, and if you enter into a required Kinect experience (like Kinect Sports Rivals for instance), you’ll get a message asking if you want to turn the sensor back on in order to continue," Whitten confirmed.
