E3 2016 ARTICLE: No Kinect Support For Xbox One S Out of the Box!


Microsoft's slimmed down Xbox One won't support Kinect out of the box, as the company has confirmed Xbox One S requires an adapter in order to use the motion-tracking peripheral.
 "In order to make the Xbox One S as compact as possible and make all of these updates, we removed the dedicated Kinect port from the back," Xbox exec Matt Lapsen explained on Xbox Wire.

That said, the console will still support Kinect, but requires the "Xbox Kinect Adapter for USB connection," which Microsoft will be giving away for free to those who request one.

To use your existing Xbox One Kinect Sensor with a new Xbox One S console, you will need the Xbox Kinect Adapter. This adapter lets you connect your Xbox One Kinect Sensor to the Xbox One S console.

This adapter will be available for free to customers who have an existing Xbox One console, an Xbox One Kinect and an Xbox One S console. Check back on this page when you have your Xbox One S console to order your free adapter. You will need the serial number for all three devices to get the free Xbox Kinect Adapter.
To streamline the process, we recommend you make sure your Xbox One console and Xbox One Kinect Sensor are registered to your Microsoft Account. Go to Device Support to register your devices.
