Yesterday at E3 media event, Microsoft announced the new Xbox One S console. The Xbox One S is 40 percent smaller than the original Xbox One and it also includes a built-in power supply. Also, in order to make the Xbox One S as compact as possible and make all of these updates, they have removed the dedicated Kinect port from the back.
Kinect for Xbox One will still be compatible with Xbox One S via the new Xbox Kinect Adapter for USB connection. If you already have a Xbox One console and Kinect and plan to purchase the Xbox One S, Microsoft will be offering a free Xbox Kinect Adapter.
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.
