Kinect is to be bundles with ALL Xbox Ones
Lets put this to rest now, all Xbox One consoles will be bundled with the Kinect Camera system this has been conformed from Microsoft. There is a bit of a backlash from a minority of the potential xbox purchasers but looking at the bigger picture is this such a bad thing when it comes to games. At least this way games developers wil know that every Xbox One game can if they want make use of one of the many Kinect features without the fear that some of the people buying the game wont be able to use all the features involved. This gives the creators greater scope to make batter games. Also greater scope to make more interactive games and they wont have to think about secondary features for those without the same hardware.
The second point about the Kinect having to be always connected however is not true. While you will have the Kinect with your Xbox One you do not have to have it connected at all times, it can be unplugged and the Xbox One will still work. This should put to bed the fear that someone is always watching you while you have the Kinect connected up. Added to this the fact that you dont have to be connected to the internet anymore then this fear should well and truely be quashed.
Microsoft has already backpedaled on the requirement that its next-generation Xbox One console require the Kinect motion controller to be plugged in at all times. However, that's not deterring the company's plans to keep the Kinect a mandatory addition to any future console bundles.
