The Xbox 180 is now truly complete. With Microsoft's announcement that they are dropping the Kinect requirement for the Xbox One, early adopters have been perturbed in droves. We happen to have three such fellows on the show to talk about their reactions, and if this was really a necessary move. Featuring Richard Naik, Mike Bracken, Ashley King, and special guest Aaron from the Gameenthus podcast. Special thanks to RushJet1 for the intermission music!
