"Dis-Kinect-ion" -- The Silicon Sasquatch Podcast: Episode 42
Microsoft's vision of an interactive living room is forever changed: on May 13th, 2014, the tech giant announced it would offer a Kinect-free version of the Xbox One for a competitive $399.

Either way, we argue, an Xbox One without the Kinect casts doubt on the focus of every device preaching its new-generation gospel.
Listen as we dissect the facts through brilliant conjecture!
