The Xbox One launches this fall for $499. Microsoft has recently backtracked on several key features for the console following a backlash from video game players.
In June, Microsoft scaled back policies requiring regular authenticity checks online and limitations on what players could do with games after purchase.
Last week, in an interview with IGN, Microsoft's Marc Whitten confirmed the Kinect motion sensor was no longer required for the console to function. Several critics raised privacy concerns related to a feature where a user could power up the console by saying "Xbox, on."
The holiday will prove critical to the video game industry, which also introduces Sony's PlayStation 4 this holiday. Meanwhile, Nintendo hopes to regain traction with its Wii U device, which has struggled to capture player interest.
