Microsoft released a stand-alone Xbox One in June of this year for $399. There has been no word when Microsoft would release a stand-alone Kinect to compliment the stand-alone Xbox One, until now.
Microsoft is planning to release the stand-alone Kinect on October 6 for $149, according to Windows Phone Central. That is just in time for the holiday season and gives people who bought an Xbox One without a Kinect an option to buy one later.
