Notifications of acceptance for the new Kinect's developer program RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I was wondering if the notifications about acceptance to the Xbox One Kinect for Windows Developer Program have already been sent out (as it's now the end of August, and I haven't received any)?

    Also, I would like to know if the new Kinect for Windows sensor will require a dedicated, external power supply, or if it gets all its power via USB 3.0.

    Thank you very much!

  • Just to clarify, this is not a Xbox One Kinect, but Kinect for Windows vNext device which is based on the same sensor technology that is shared with the Xbox One. We have started to roll-out notifications to those that have been accepted. Not everyone has been notified yet, and will take some time to go through the list. We will continue to notify people in the coming weeks.

    We have no further technical details to share at this point.

  • When is the payment due for the program?  Now, or in November?

  • Will we receive notification if we've been rejected?
