In some kind of zombie hunting mission, Microsoft has now announced that it’s no longer producing the Xbox Kinect Adaptor.
You may have ended up with one of these adaptors completely by accident when Microsoft threw it at your head – sorry, released it for free – after the release of the Xbox One S. After this, it started selling it separately but it wasn’t long before retailer stock dried up last year.
Not even a peripheral look in
Now, Microsoft is looking to focus on the things that will actually sell, with a spokesperson telling Polygon that it was looking to focus on making “higher fan-requested gaming accessories.”
This isn’t entirely surprising – it makes sense that Microsoft would stop selling an accessory for a peripheral it no longer makes.
The demand must have dried up very quickly if it was still there at all, as most people who were going to buy the adaptor would have done so already.
