Microsoft Won't Offer Free Kinect Adapter With Xbox One X Upgrade

This means you're essentially getting three games for free. Or maybe it does; I don't know.

Microsoft really want you to buy and Xbox One.

Microsoft's latest gaming console, the Xbox One X, is not expected to arrive earlier than November 7, but those who are looking forward to its arrival are already given more reasons why they should go for it.

Microsoft will not offer a free Kinect adaptor with Xbox One X's launch. There's the Xbox One S Minecraft Complete Adventure Bundle, Rocket League Blast-Off Bundle, Starter Bundle and Ultimate Halo Bundle to choose from, all of which come with a matching controller, Xbox Live Gold of some sort and an Xbox Games Pass subscription or trial. The company has been aggressively pushing bundles throughout the last few months, and that approach is set to continue with four new SKUs announced today. Xbox One X owners looking to use Kinect can still purchase the adapter, which retails for R869. But, unlike the rest, it offers a total of 3 months of Xbox Game Pass.

Finally, we have the Xbox One S Ultimate Halo Bundle, which is flawless for any fan of Halo.

As far as the other games in this pack go, Halo 5 Guardians is a solid entry in the sci-fi shooter series and a fairly pretty one at that. Packed alongside the console are Halo 5: Guardians and Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Full 4K resolution may be able to be traded in for a faster frame rate for instance, a feature that was present in the PS4 Pro version of Rise of the Tomb Raider, but will reportedly be more widespread in Xbox One X games.
