No Kinect Adaptor To Be Included With Xbox One X Purchases

No Kinect Adaptor To Be Included With Xbox One X Purchases

Since the console's unveiling, Microsoft has been quick to tout Forza 7 as one of the prime examples of 4K gaming and a good showcase of what the Xbox One X is capable of.

There's also an Xbox One S Rocket League Blast-Off Bundle that's available in only a very small number of places.

First, we have the Xbox One S packed with Minecraft: 500 GB hard drive space, 1 Xbox One wireless controller, free Minecraft Explorer's Pack, 3 months of Xbox Live Gold, and 1 month of Xbox Game Pass. Xbox One X owners looking to use Kinect can still purchase the adapter, which retails for R869.

Those of you now saving your pennies in order to pick up one of Microsoft's brand new boxes next month may want to switch your pre-order today.

The Rocket League bundle is available everywhere Xbox One units are sold except for the following massive list: U.S., Canada, China, Hong Kong, India, Singapore, Japan, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Hungary, Russia, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Belgium, and the Netherlands.

Also available at the same $279/£229/€279 price point is the Xbox One S Starter Bundle, which packages the console with 3 months of Xbox Live Gold and 3 months of Xbox Game Pass, or the Xbox One S Ultimate Halo Bundle, available exclusively in the United States at Walmart for $279.

The Minecraft package brings 3 months of Xbox Live Gold and 1 month of Xbox Game Pass. For Minecraft fans, there is a new Minecraft Complete Adventure Bundle, not to be confused with the Minecraft Limited Edition bundle featuring a gorgeous custom-designed console.

With the launch of Xbox One S, Microsoft did away with the requisite Kinect port on the back of each console, rendering the peripheral useless without an adapter.

Right now you can reserve the console for the £449.99 RRP and get three top-tier games included for no extra cost.
