Xbox One S is a slimmed down version of original Xbox One so it does not include a port for the Kinect motion tracker. You need a separate adapter to use the Kinect sensor present on the console. Several retailers are offering the adapter for a price of $ 40. However, if you are an early adopter of Kinect design, Microsoft has got a deal for you. The company is running a promotion scheme where you can get the Kinect Adapter for free only for a limited period.
The Xbox Support team, that manages information requests from Xbox users is distributing complimentary adapters upon submitting the request. The adapter lets you connect your Xbox One Kinect Sensor to the Xbox One S console.
