Overall, reactions mostly fall in a few camps: snark, disappointment (all the Kinect believers are coming out of the woodwork), and curiosity over what a Kinect-free console means for the future of the console after Microsoft initially made such a big deal about how it was going to be mandatory. A few folks even seem straight up angry or wronged, but they're a minority, as far as I can tell.

Let's take a look at what people around the web are saying about the Kinect news, shall we?
