Microsoft Confirmed Stop Producing Xbox One Kinect Adapter


Microsoft has confirmed that it is no longer producing Xbox One Kinect adapter, USB accessory needed to connect Xbox One Kinect sensor to Xbox One S, Xbox One X or other Windows device.


After careful consideration, we decided to stop manufacturing the Xbox Kinect Adapter to focus attention on launching new, higher fan-requested gaming accessories across Xbox One and Windows 10,

according to Microsoft spokesperson said.

Microsoft gave the adapter away for free for 8 months after the launch of Xbox One S and started selling it in April 2017 for $39.99 after promotion ended.

Major retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop and Microsoft itself have listed the Xbox One Kinect Adapter as out of stock for months.
