And this is why I sold my X1 last week. I'm not going to go through that trouble to relo a box just to use Kinect. If M$ doesn't see fit to release an extension cable then I'll take my gaming elsewhere. And for the record, sold my PS4 last month because Sony, in their infinite wisdom has decided NOT to release a remote that works with the PS4 or release the codes to make it compatible with my Harmony Ultimate. For all the hype about "The battle for the living room", my Roku 3 is doing a far better job for media and my Alienware PC (purchased with the proceeds of both consoles) is doing a bang-up job as a gaming console.
So for the 1st time in my adult life, I don't have a console. Maybe I'll get one in the future when prices drop and there's a compelling game lineup. Kinda weird, but I think both companies dropped the ball this time 'round.
