Microsoft Makes it Easier for Kinect and Xbox One Developers With New Adaptor

Microsoft this week announced that it will discontinue the Kinect for Windows v2 sensors.
Instead, the company plans to sell developers a Kinect Adaptor for Windows that will link with the Kinect available for the Xbox One console.
A blog post from Microsoft stated these dev kits are "an effort to simplify and create consistency for developers."
Although Microsoft hasn't said that this decision means developers will be able to build cross-platform Kinect experiences, the possibility is becoming more plausible.
