Xbox One Kinect Uses Screw Thread For Mounts Unlike Xbox 360 Kinect's Snap On Method

Online Retailer Amazon has the Xbox One Kinect TV mount from PDP up for pre-order. It shows that it uses a screw thread rather than the snap on connection that is used on the Xbox 360 Kinect.

Well if it blocks both the RGB and IR camera why would I buy it?... lol

Looks like you don't read into anything. It states on the product page that it comes with something to block the RGB & IR Cameras if you're one of those tinfoil hat guys.

Edit - In all fairness to you, the article should probably mentioned that it "Can block Cameras - But is optional" Alas, game journalism at it's finest.

Who would want to mount that thing on a TV?
That thing is huge.
My TV would feel like it's wearing a Baseball cap.
Only backwards.

Not sure what you are talking about it looks fine mounted above your TV, not necessary though.

On a side note it looks like X1 after re-stocking supply is picking up some momentum its been in the top ten on Amazon for a few days now.
I'm sure ps4 would be right there or better but it seems they've been sold out on Amazon forever.

I want mine TV-mounted. Keeps it out of reach from small hands.

Is a mounting kit necessary then? Every demo kit I've seen pictured had the kinect mounting on the TV, so I kind of assumed it was designed to clip onto a TV frame.

Looks mostly like the first. Guess I'll have to pick this up.

I definitely would prefer the Kinect to be on top of my tv so that it doesn't have to sit in front of my soundbar. I will wait for some reviews on this product then consider picking this up.

I will Velcro mine to the bottom of my wall mounted tv problem solved.

I would rather have the kinect and get the full functionality that it brings

Broken games and poorly thought out gimmicks?
