Xbox Is Ending Production Of The Xbox One Kinect Adaptor
While the original Xbox One has a port for the Kinect camera, the subsequent console models required a Kinect Adapter, allowing folks to plug the device into a USB port on either the One S or One X. While the Kinect itself was discontinued in recent years, Microsoft still made the Kinect Adapter available. For a while there, they were actually providing the device free of charge for people who wanted to upgrade from a standard Xbox One to one of the newer models. Once that promotion was discontinued, Microsoft would still sell the devices for about $40. Now that the Kinect Adaptor has been discontinued, you’ll have to buy the device from sources other than Microsoft and, according to the initial report, that can now set you back hundreds of dollars.
