Kinect Query

 I just got given a Kinect sensor of my brother-in-law (he got a new 360 and didn't want it.), I have a old Elite.

 Am I correct in thinking that I need a power supply to use the Kinect? If so, can I purchase one anywhere.

 

P.s. I am aware I can google this stuff, but I thought someone may like to do a good deed for the day. Cheers.

Yep, you need a power cable for the kinect with the older 360's.

I just had a look on ebay, and there are heaps of options starting at about $10. But I'd probably go for the official one, as you might get dodgy strain on your 360 with a crappy one from hong kong. There is an official one located in the US for about $26. Also I reckon you should call EB/Game and see how much they are.

Careful buying power cables from the U.S., as they're often not universal, but rated for 220V at 60HZ. You'd need a separate transformer to not blow it.
