[Xbox One] Microsoft Kinect Sensor 2.0 (Pre-owned) - £17.99 Delivered - Grainger Games

Found 20th Jul 2017
I was wondering. Do I need a Kinect? The real answer is most probably - No.

But I've just seen this, £17.99 delivered and had a little read about and found this on Reddit. Worth it?...

Things you can do with Kinect now:

  • Play some great Kinect games: Fantasia, Fru, D4, Dance Central Spotlight, Fruit Ninja Kinect 2, Kung-Fu for Kinect, Kinect Sports Rivals, Air Guitar Warrior, Blue Estate, etc.
  • Skype in 1080p with auto-digital zoom
  • Broadcast your game via Beam or Twitch with camera inset or do the same while making clips in Upload Studio
  • Use it as a microphone for game chat, party chat, or streaming
  • "Xbox, on" to start up your console; "Xbox, turn off. Yes" to turn it off.
  • Voice commands to navigate ("Xbox, watch TV", "Xbox, pause", "Xbox, volume down").
  • Auto-sign in via facial recognition
  • Use the Microsoft Camera app to take pictures or record videos


Things you used to be able to do with Kinect but which Microsoft took away:

  • Gesture navigation (you could literally control your entire Xbox One without ever using a controller; it was pretty rad)
  • Exercise via Xbox Fitness (can still do it in other games, like Shape Up, but Xbox Fitness was the best)
  • Have Xbox identify players by the controller they are holding
  • Create your own custom animations and sounds in Project Spark

I had one on my OG Xbox One and it was really enjoyable playing Alien Isolation with. I've just picked AI again so I think I'm going to bite.

CEX have it for £18.00 in-store.

Are many Kinect games compatible with Xbox one?

Had considered Kinect but tempted... isn't there a dodgy Star Wars one??
Good luck get anything delivered from Grainger games !
Decent price. I have an Xbox One S which means i need the adapter. Microsoft gave it away for free but now charge £30
Edited by: "mrtonyalmeida" 20th Jul 2017
Oh dang really... I have an S too, the 2.0 to me suggested it would work I thought it was original Kinects that didn't work

Whilst its fairly obvious to most people its used given the price, should probably still mention in the title.

Wikipedia list 21, but I think they're games totally aimed at Kinect usage. I know there's a lot more such as the previously mentioned use of it in Alien Isolation. I'm not sure if it's applicable in the latter FIFA games, but you used to be able to make substitutions with it.
Save your money. I've had one since day one and used it a handful of times

See, we use it every single day. Clearly YMMV.

Dead Rising 3 made use of Kinect to detect movement to shake off zombies

this Kinect is a very high tech piece of kit it's unfortunate no developer actually used it well. this is a £100 camera so this is a bargain but again there is very little content. I hope they make 360 kinect games backwards compatible with Xbox one and Kinect 2.0 but no one cares enough I guess

It's 2.0 because 1.0 was the 360 version.

Yeah, still the best and highest quality way to Skype that I've found, especially with several kids together on sofa. Auto sign in useful as a family of 6.
With the need for a £30 adapter I'll let you know where I am at......

I'm ooooooooooooooooooooooooot
This is abandon-ware at this stage.

They offered them free for anyone with a Xbox One S but then stopped the offer. Now on the microsoft website for £29.99

all is forgiven
Will they offer the adapter for free when the Xbox One X comes out....
Get if from cex that price, well close and 12 months if it breaks
I use mine to turn on the Xbox - handy to tell it to turn on when reaching for the controller, saves a few seconds... Also comes in handy to tell it to "record that!" when I manage to pull a fly move in game! Other than that it doesn't get much use (in fact I have it pointed at right angles to the TV so face detection doesn't work)
Heat added btw...

That's pants! Microsoft should always offer the adapter for free as they removed the port out of the updated hardware. So much for one big Xbox family. Come on Microsoft you can do better!
What are the space requirements for the XBox One Kinect compared to the 360 version?
For the 360 I had to buy a range reduction adapter to get it to work in my small room.

Much better, this was improved for the Xbox one Kinect. I don't use it for gaming but the facial recognition sign in is handy. When my daughter uses it it defaults to her age appropriate settings without any sign in being required.
Ah Kinect, the biggest pos in xbox history. Originally including the £100 camera with every system is the reason we ended up with such an anemic soc.

Xbox go home you're drunk.
I love the smell of flopped technology in the morning.
If you look at the success of the Amazon Alexa products -Microsoft were on to something with Kinect technology but just targeted the wrong audience

Not to mention the best use case of Kinect for XB1, as an IR Blaster. You can basically configure it to turn on/off your TV/amp/soundbar via Xbox.
Buy an Xbox media remote and you can control volume too. I basically use just one the media remote to control my TV, Xbox and soundbar.

Seconded for FRU, then there's Fruit Ninja which is good fun too. Kinect comes into it's own when you've got a group of kids (or big kids) to amuse but it's not really been well utilised by game devs.
Mines been playing up lately, doesn't turn on when i turn on my xbox, I usually have to unplug it and plug it back in to get it working. Is anyone else having the same problem/s?

This functionality is built into the Xbox One S console - it has an IR LED in the front of the console, which doesn't require line of sight - it's like some kind of witchcraft...

I had the same issue with my OG X1, I though the console was giving up as sometimes apps and games wouldn't launch. Traded it in, got the X1S and free adaptor, same issue. I then figured my external HDD (Seagate) was causing the problems so I now only plug the HDD when needed and everything works fine, including a nearly 4 years old Kinect that I still use a lot with Skype and occasionally with some games.

The One S has an IR blaster on the console
