Kinect Adapter For Xbox One S Priced
Planning on getting an Xbox One S this year? Planning on getting a Kinect too? Well it looks like you'll need another $40, because that's how much the adapter will run you if you want to use Kinect with your Xbox One S.
According to a listing on Amazon, the adapter will be available for $40, and pre-orders are currently being accepted. Now, if you already have a Kinect and wish to use that on your new Xbox One S, you can contact Microsoft and they'll send you the adapter for free. This is a nice gesture for fans that have already invested in a Kinect compatible Xbox One.
The Xbox One S is 40% slimmer than the original Xbox One. Axing the proprietary Kinect port in the back was necessary to help reduce the size of the new box.
It is important to note that most gamers do not use the Kinect and Microsoft has seemingly dropped all plans to really push further development for the device. Ultimately, it seems nice to even be getting an adapter for the Kinect at all.
