kinect xbox one

If you’re one of the many who jumped in with Microsoft once Xbox One shed itself of its Kinect sensor, then you may be interested to know that it is now available to buy as a standalone unit.

We’re big fans of Kinect and whilst everyone now has their own choice, believe that all really should experience the interaction Kinect for Xbox One brings to the next generation of gaming. And so if you’re currently running a Kinect-less Xbox One system, at least have a think about purchasing the motion and voice controller that is now available.

You can pick it up from Amazon for £129.85 or direct from the Microsoft store for £129.99 and with it will receive a digital download code for the rather superb Dance Central Spotlight included.

Kinect Description:

With Kinect for Xbox One, command your Xbox and TV with your voice and gestures, play games where you are the controller and make Skype calls in HD. * Be recognised and signed-in automatically, and use your voice to find your favourite entertainment, snap apps, switch instantly and start recording game clips. You can even broadcast your gameplay live with picture-in-picture. Kinect for Xbox One has a 1080p HD camera, advanced infrared technology and a microphone array with noise isolation for maximum precision in capturing sound and motion. Plus, get a token to download the newest game in the award-winning Dance Central series, Dance Central Spotlight, included with your Kinect.

What’s not to like?


  1. “What’s not to like?”
    That price and the fact that the hardcore Xbox fans made it quite clear since 21st May 2013 what they think of Kinect. Why not just buy one “used” still sealed in its packaging for €28 at CEX if you wanted one THAT bad? AND for the past 4 months you could do that too.

    • Many won’t buy used, no matter what price you can get it for.

      £129 seems reasonable enough does it not? Under £100 would have been nicer and I guess we’ll eventually see it at something around the £99 price point but as a ‘new’ product it seems fine.

      At a guess, the Xmas market will see a few of these purchased?
