Free Xbox One Kinect Adapter @ Xbox

20
Found 13th Jul 2016
If you own an Xbox One console with a Kinect, and you're upgrading to the Xbox One S, you'll be happy to know that Microsoft are giving away free adapters so that you can use your current Kinect with your new Xbox One S Console.

With the Xbox One S Console, there is no plug to connect the Kinect to, so this freebie is awesome.

To claim, register the serial number of both the Xbox One Console and the Xbox One S console, as well as the Xbox One Kinect and check back when the Xbox One S Console is released later this year.

​so you can't use kinect till the adapter arrives. that's a bit silly. if u order xbox s with Ms they should allow you to put ur xbox and kinect details in the ship with your s.

Does it matter? For the sake of waiting a few days I'm sure people won't mind & also the fact that MS is offering the adapter for free is cool, could easily do the opposite.
Pretty good! Thanks OP for the heads up.
Better off just binning the Kinect. Useless.

Hi everyone!

Once you have your serial numbers for both consoles, you need to contact Xbox Support here:

That's it!

Enjoy your new consoles and free Kinect Adapters.

thanks op
I can't remember who posted this, but, you can register your devices here - https://devicesupport.microsoft.com/

Then, during the support chat, you can let the operative know that your Kinect, Xbox One and S model are all on there. That way, they have access to set things up much quicker than having you type it all in over the chat.

That is correct. Used to be myservice.xbox.com but they changed the website a few months back. If you have them already registered on there, it makes the service super quick!
Perfect - just got off chat with Microsoft, mine is on its way. Painless - as with others, all they asked for was my Xbox One S serial number. Heat, thanks.
