So I have an Xbox 360 that's less than a year old. I don't know what model or revision or anything it is but am just trying to figure out what I need if I pick up a used Kinect.
I keep seeing things mentioning the power cord and whether or not I need one or not which is my question.
Is it just original Xbox's that need the separate power cord or is there a chance mine would as well? I'm looking on eBay and Craigslist and many say it's the Kinect only so I just want to make sure that's all I need.
No. Just plug in the DisplayPort-like cable to the slim 360. The older XBOX required a Kinect-to-USB adapter that also provided power through the AC adapter. The Slim provides power through said DisplayPort-like port.
