I'm looking to buy a Xbox One without a Kinect towards the end of the year and even if MS doesn't make a bundle without kinect, I will try to purchase one without it through ebay, craigslist, etc. Two questions..
#1) Now I hear that there is a small icon that is displayed at all times on the top right of the screen if there is not Kinect plugged in. I'm very meticulous about what's on screen so even a tiny icon will piss me off when I'm playing a game. Is there anyway to get rid of that icon?
#2) Another alternative would be to have the Kinect, but turn it around so it's not looking at me at all. Would the X1 run without the icon at that point?
I really hate the Kinect and everything it stands for, I'm a gamer from the old school I like to pick up a controller and play. I hate everything motion sensing and all of that. I won't be using the Kinect for anything, so just need to make sure I fully do not need it at all.
