Microsoft Announces Kinect-Free Xbox One

Who'd have thought it?
Microsoft has confirmed that they will be releasing a Kinect-less Xbox One bundle for a lower price.
The new package will be available from June 9th, and will retail for £349.99 in the UK, or $399.99 in the US, making it the same price as the PlayStation 4. The bundle will include the Xbox One console and a controller, and will be available alongside the current bundle, should gamers wish to purchase an Xbox One with Kinect.
Later in the year, a standalone Kinect 2.0 device will be made available, so players can add one to their Xbox One system if they wish.
So is this a good move by Microsoft, do you think? Or will a Kinect-less Xbox One just mean that developers have even less reason to try to harness the power of Kinect?
