Kinect 2.0 seems to be officially dead as Microsoft has discontinued the adapter which allowed it to function on new Xbox Ones.
The adapter, which has been needed to use Kinect on every iteration of the Xbox One since the Xbox One S, is no longer in production and more than that, it seems like it isn’t even possible to buy at a lot of stores anymore. On the Microsoft store and even Amazon, it’s listed as unavailable so if you still wanted one you’d probably have to go third party or second hand.
With this, the Kinect 2.0 has silently bowed out, and while it wasn’t as necessary to the console as Microsoft once claimed (or even, at all), the whole thing wasn’t an entire bust. There is something to be said about controlling your console by voice. Sadly it was the main draw, as there were only a handful of worthwhile Kinect experiences out there. Still, we are pouring one out for you, you weird little thing.
