We are pretty sure X1 won Nov NPD, MS was close to give us X1 almost for free to achive this. It's not a surprise, it was expected. Should we congratulate MS for being a so rich Company capable to sell X1 at $189 as a value into bundle, at $21 less than half the price of the standard Kinect-less SKU ? It's up to you. If you ask me, this is like to devalue your product and sell the most you can in a couple of months to casual gamers and very young kids who live with their parents's pocket money to buy as much as possible at a very low price; just my opinion.
