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.

The story is too old to be commented.

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?
