      Nifty, but a few bucks too expensive. $19.99 would be about right, not $24.99

      This little bastard should've been bundled at launch with the XB1, as a compliment to the media features that MS Marketing was over-hyping and as an alternative for those who don't want to use Kinect.

      Since it's only IR, I expect cheap clones to come around soon enough.

      This remote actually does remind me of a cheap PS2 DVD remote I had once (compared to the 'full size, fully featured' Sony remote).

      It looks like the kind of cheap remote you get with some of the car stereos.

      What's the point of using a remote? I thought voice commands were all the rage on Xbox One.

      Or soon will ship a cheaper XB1 without the Kinect, maybe they will bundle in this Remote in exchange for the worthless Kinect.
