I think everyone knew this needed to happen, but does it say anything about the new management? I hope it's a better response to customers. I've also heard there are going to be better changes to Microsoft 8. It would be nice to see Microsoft pull out of it's nose dive.

Title is a bit deceptive. They're offering an Xbox one not bundled with Kinect as an option. Kinect is still fully supported and can be purchased separately.
They are listening to complaints and suggestions and responding. This is a new Microsoft.

Yes, un-bundled would have been a better way to say it, but I suppose they wanted brevity. I hope you are right that they are listening to complaints and suggestions. I always felt that Ballmer was the wrong person for the job. He didn't think tablets would take off. Then when they did, he tried to change Windows into a tablet OS, which everyone hated because most people use a mouse. He was way too slow updating Windows mobile. I'd like to see Nadella turn it around, but he really put them in a hole.
