    How long until XB1 releases a system without Kinect? I'm ignorant when it comes to gaming these days. Is the Kinect actually attached on the system or something?

    No way in hell I'm getting a stupid Kinect.

    But like I said... roommate got an XB1, so I'll have plenty of opportunities to play for free.

    Can't decide if I want to cancel my XBL subscription or not. I literally never use it anymore. Signed on for the first time in like a month the other night only to watch Netflix.

    Might as well get Roku or Apple TV... or just get a smart TV (when I can afford a good one).

    They've never considered selling the division before and the PS4 is demolishing it in release sales.

    As far as I know, there are no plans for it. They'll eventually do it I would guess, just to lower the price point and try to pick up some more sales.

    It's not attached and it can be unplugged (one of the backflips they made) but all systems come with it.

    That type of stuff is always rumored. Becomes laughable.

    And xbox may lose money per console... then they sell XBL pts/membership etc and make that and more back with each sold. They'll be fine.

    The rumour for selling is coming because they're not making money.

    i often wonder what is the next disruptive technology for video games? i think it is going to be a helmet experience , virtual world and something like that's affordable could help one or the other system today capture big % of the console market share for a few years

    So my older kids are in college and my 12 and 13 year old are saying our XBOX 360 sucks.

    So what's the verdict? If I have to buy another game system, is PS4 THAT much better than XBOX 1 or is there something about to come out in the next year that I should wait on?

    btw- I was a Halo junkie (campaign only). Heard rumblings of a new release on Halo. That might sway me.

    They're the same systems at this point. Depends on what games you want to play. Most titles are multiplatform. The XB1 is $50 less, but doesn't have the exclusives that I like/looked forward to(Uncharted, MLB The Show, Arkham Knight, etc.).

    It's really down to personal preference. But reality is, you may as well wait until something you really like is out. At this stage (being somewhat early in their life) the games are scarce, especially exclusives.

    I am guessing your kids are saying the 360 sucks because it's old gen and their friends are moving on.

    There is a new Halo coming out.
