Where to buy Microsoft's Kinect (while you still can)

It's sad that Microsoft confirmed that the Kinect isn't being made anymore for the Xbox One, but that doesn't mean Kinect will stop working. There are some pretty fun games out there that use Kinect, and it's still a pretty handy camera and microphone combination.

But with no more being made, you'll need to act fast if you want to snag one before they're gone forever. Here are some places to find them. They might go quickly, though, so if you want one act fast.


Amazon currently has Kinects on sale both used and new, with a brand new one costing around $45. Used ones can be had for about $10 less, but you'll be pretty much resigned to resellers. There are plenty in stock, so it's a good place to start.


Microsoft's online store is out of stock for the Kinect, but you can still use the "Find in store" button on the page to check your local retail stores. Not all of them will be able to sell you a Kinect, but it's a good way to check out your local area and grab what stock remains.

However, unless the stores have reduced the prices themselves, it looks like it'll still cost the full $100. And you can do much better than that.

GameStop has preowned Kinects only, but they're also really cheap at just $19.99. PowerUp Rewards Elite Pro members can get it for even less at $15.99.

Best Buy

You can buy a Kinect from Best Buy, but you'll be paying full price. Or rather, you get $5 off full price at $95. So this is maybe a last resort option.

Ah, eBay. If there's something you can't find on eBay, it probably doesn't exist. Prices will vary across the board, and there'll be a bunch of used items, but it's a good place to score a lower-priced Kinect.

Those are some of the places we found where you can still snag a Kinect. If you find anymore, or a particularly good deal somewhere, be sure to drop it into the comments.
