Kinect for Windows v2 Sensor a dead SKU? RRS feed

  • Question

  • This isn't just out of stock on Microsoft Store. It is gone entirely from the listing and from search results. Is the sensor package dead as a standalone SKU? In other words, moving forward will it only be possible to purchase the Kinect for XBox One Sensor + Kinect Adapter for Windows?

    I work for a US NPO (university) and thus need to purchase this sans tax. Thus the existing inventory on Amazon won't work. And of course this combo is actually $15 more for us since the 10% educational discount will only apply to the adapter, not the sensor. Used to be:

    Sensor: $200 - 10% = $180

    Now:

    Sensor: $150

    Adapter: $50 -10% = $45

    Total: $195

    Cost really isn't a huge deal. Just want to know whether it is feasible to wait a little bit to see the original K4W sensor SKU restored.

    Thanks!

  • I don't have any information on stock, but if you need sensors you will have to decide on what type of lead time you need and whether stock will show up. If you need them for a particular time/date purchasing the adapter/Xbox One sensor is the recommendation.
