    Hi,

    I got my Xbox One X and a Kinect but I need the adapter. It seems I can't find it anywhere in Germany. Any hints where I might order it from? Strangely it seems to show up for pre-order on amazon.co.uk.

    I would like to get a few kinect games like Just Dance and Sports Rivals to play with my children.

    Maybe MS is releasing a slimmer version or something for the X cause I can't seem to find it on the German Amazon as well. I'd say just order from UK Amazon.

    Well......the Kinect is officially dead in Microsofts eyes so I do not see any more adapters being made. I just sold mine along with my Kinect last week. Too many cords plugged in to get the Kinect working on the S and X. It is ridiculous.

    That's true @Lethal_NFS, but you never know. MS has done roundabouts more times this generation than... uhm... a caroussel with a drunk operator handling it for a minute :p

    I have my Kinect disconnected for now. Like @Lethal_NFS said, too many wires to deal with. However, I'm keeping my adapter and Kinect.

    Sure, another thing to add to the mess of cables already needed to hook the kinect to the S and X....

    Although the Kinect is not USB..

    I thought the Kinect adapter was.

    Kinect has it's own proprietary port. The Kinect needs to be powered by the console and since that port does not exist on the S and X. The Kinect now has it's own power supply. Too many cables for me to play Fruit Ninja

    That's actually a nice pretty picture but in reality, it's a huge wire mess when it's all hooked up!

    You are right. These cables are also thick as hell
