Back in October last year, Microsoft finally admitted that Kinect is dead as the company declared that it will no longer produce new units. If you managed to get your hands on the Kinect, you will no longer be able to use it as the company recently announced that it will no longer produce Kinect Adapter which is essential to make Kinect work on modern consoles.
Back when Microsoft unveiled Xbox One S, it removed the proprietary connector in order to save space. However, the port was also excluded from Xbox One X. As a result, users at the moment can only use Kinect via an adapter which was also available for PCs. If you are thinking that you can find the adapter from online retailer, then think again as the adapter is out of stock in Microsoft store for a long time and you will need to search extensive in retailers in order to find one.
While there are still some retailers who sell the device currently, they are extremely overpriced. This is enough to put consumers off given Kinect’s functionalities. However, if you absolutely want to get your hands on one, then you will need to act quickly as Kinect’s death is now official.
