It's still bundled with the Kinect, so I'm sure some people will bi*ch about that. Unless they decide to release a SKU without the Kinect, which will leave us where we are today with the original Kinect with a fragmented user base.
Yea but from what I hear, most people don't really care that it comes with Kinect, they just care that it was required to stay connected at all times. But we all know most of those people just lie so they can find new reasons to hate on Microsoft. Like you said, those same people will just say "well where's the $400 version without Kinect then?" (Which, by the way, I don't see happening. I think Msoft still wants a Kinect with every box so developers can create games knowing everyone should have one.)
