This is a great way to upgrade your Kinect without dishing out extra money ($39.99 value). Offer valid while program/promotion last. Refer to the forum thread for all internal discussion - Discombobulated

For the thousands of you who have upgraded to an Xbox One S over Black Friday, your old Kinects do not plug into it. Rather than paying $39.99 for an adapter, you can get a free adapter from Microsoft.
YOU WILL NEED:
  • The serial number on your old Xbox One
  • The serial number on your Kinect
  • The serial number on your new Xbox One S
The serial numbers do not need to match any "bundle"; piecemeal purchases are okay as long as you have real serial numbers.


Confirmed that this program is still active: I just received mine today, 6 days after I requested it.


Request one by signing into your Microsoft account at this link: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kinectadapter

I personally ordered this at the beginning of November and to date it has not shipped out. Microsoft created a shipping label and it was supposed to ship out on November 17, but when I contacted customer support I was told that the adapters are backordered and won't ship out for some time. Awesome deal otherwise! Inu_Yasha

This is not a replacement Kinect--just an adapter. If the Kinect doesn't work, an adapter just connects the broken connect to the new S but is still broken. But feel free to buy all the broken Kinects you can find on eBay. LMAO

My buddy is giving me his kinect, I bought a new s. How hard-core are they with the old Xbox serial number? You think they will hunt down for actual owner?

I very much doubt it. You should be fine. It doesn't seem to be too strict. I had two XBox Ones registered to my Microsoft account, one died a couple months after launch and Amazon was kind enough to spot me a late exchange rather than forcing me to deal with Microsoft repairs. I never removed it from my account, and it still showed up as eligible to be submitted. Granted, they could've denied it after the fact, but it seemed like a pretty simple process.

Took me about ten days to receive it from my claim date.

Mine came quick. Ordered it last week. It kind of ruins the best part of the S model to me which is elimating a big bulky power brick and it adds a big bulky power brick essentially for the adapter. Happy to have it free but still disappointed in its size.

You need to have both systems registered online, so unless you can register his system online it won't work.

The thing is massive, just so you know. Positively, it adds a sizeable extension to the kinect.

Literally ordered mine about an hour ago. Said there might be a 3-4 week delay due to high demand. Had my old Xbox one serial already attached to my account but had to add the Kinect one manually.

Edit: received my tracking info this morning

Yeah when I received it, I was wondering why the box was so big, and then what a surprise when I opened it. I then thought maybe I dont need all the parts. I was wrong. Now I have this thing sitting in the back with the rest of the spaghetti.
