PSA: Xbox 360 S Kinect Bundle Doesn't Come with Kinect AC Adapter

Here you are, having your own little private November Christmas, tearing apart the freshly delivered Xbox 360 S console bundle, replete with Kinect and Kinect Adventures, only to make an inconvenient discovery -- the Xbox 360 S Kinect bundle doesn't contain a standalone power cord for Kinect, leaving folks who want to use those Kinects on older (pre-Slim) Xbox 360s in the lurch.

The story is too old to be commented.

of course not your supose to hook it up on the back of the 360s....lmao

I can't believe this was printed by Joystiq.

Idiot article really shoots all credibility...

darthv722513d ago

Are they so absolutely idiotic to really think that the 360S (the very system that has a dedicated KINECT POWER PORT) would have a need for the AC power?

You buy that system with kinect and guess what...that's all you need. Who would buy that and then use the kinect on an older machine? I mean seriously. Show of hands please.

This is a flat out stupid ass flaimbait ...i cant even finish what i want to say this is just so stupid.

I bet it doesn't come with a Jasper era power brick either. WTF

I thought it was kind of dumb until I read the article. Yes of course it doesn't come with an adapter but his point was that if you had wanted to bring Kinect over to a friends house that only has the older Xbox then you're out of luck as you can't currently buy a standalone AC adpater.

There is no need for a power adapter since it already is supposed to work with the slims, if you have a regular Xbox, most liekly a power adapter comes with each Kincet system.

If not, Microsoft is just being a money hog, cause knowing them the cord will cost 20$ standalone.

Exactly right? Why in the hell would it bring an adapter, the Slim doesn't need one. Wow ...

Joystiq FTL...

LMFAO @ this idiot not knowing a simple fact about Kinect...

See..sites try so hard to hate on the device that they will say ANYTHING..

Zero Credibilty...

The funny part is the fact that the Kinect ready 360S was a known fact since E3..

I own a 360S and Kinect..it works perfectly fine with the dedicared port in the back of the console..

Everyone should have a 360s by now with the all the problems the first 360's had/ LOL

Its just to save them money...

wat6342513d ago

If you have a slim, why would you want to use it on the older 360's anyway?

lzim2513d ago

the alternative?

buying another Kinect or being cheesed at not having an AC adapter?

branchedout2513d ago

Now this is trolling for hits if I ever seen it.

C'mon joystiq.
Really.

N4G loves to hate on the Xbox, but I think even this kind of stuff would just seem silly.
