Xbox One Standalone Kinect Coming Soon

Posted: 01:37PM

While the Xbox One has been available for quite some time now without the Kinect sensor, the Kinect itself has been unavailable to purchase separately at a later time. Microsoft is looking to change that, as it will soon offer the Xbox One standalone Kinect sensor to customers who initially purchase the Xbox One console by itself. The Xbox One Kinect will be available starting on October 7, 2014, and will come with Dance Central Spotlight, the latest video game in the dance series from developer Harmonix. The sensor allows for voice and gesture controls, biometric sign-in, instant personalization, instant scanning of QR codes, and enhanced features only available with Kinect games.

The standalone Xbox One Kinect will cost customers $149.99. At that price point, it seems that if a customer has any intention of purchasing the Kinect for the Xbox One at a later time, they might as well purchase the bundled version of the Xbox One upfront.
