Kinect died a while ago; now Microsoft is ripping out the life support tube

The once-hyped Kinect camera for Xbox One hasn't exactly been alive and kicking for years - but today came the last nail in the (one imagines) shiny green coffin. Microsoft has confirmed that it's no longer making the adapter needed to hook Kinect up to your Xbox One S, Xbox One X, or any other Windows box.

It was back in October 2017 that Microsoft announced it was no longer producing the Kinect camera sensor, but you could still find the units floating around second-hand retailers, and still grab an adapter to hook it up to your new console. Now that the company is purging the adapter from store shelves and its official website, it feels as if Microsoft really doesn't want anyone playing Kinectimals ever again. Goodbye, Daniel the white tiger. I'll never forget you.
