With the Xbox One S launching this August, many are curious whether or not some of its accessories, namely the Kinect, will be compatible with the new console.
Fortunately, the Xbox One for Kinect will be indeed compatible with the Xbox One S, though a special adapter will be required. For those who have the Kinect and are planning to purchase the new Xbox One S, Microsoft is giving a free Xbox Kinect Adapter.
Additionally, 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. Kinect for Xbox One will still be compatible with Xbox One S via the Xbox Kinect Adapter for USB connection and offers the same great experiences as the current console. For fans that currently own a Kinect for Xbox One and plan to purchase the Xbox One S, we are offering a free Xbox Kinect Adapter.
