Microsoft has confirmed that it will not offer a free adaptor for the Kinect for consumers who upgrade to the Xbox One X model.

As part of the release of the Xbox One S slim model last year, the gaming/tech company offered a free adaptor for users who switched over from older model Xbox One console. Microsoft’s head of Xbox Games Marketing, Aaron Greenberg has quashed any hopes consumers had over the company doing the same for its upcoming console.

The Kinect adapter, for either the S or X models, can be purchased on the Microsoft Store for $54.95.
