"So, we have two options with the Kinect. First option is, you can buy the bundle of the Kinect and the Xbox Slim. Now, when you do that, you are pretty much going to have a cable, and it's going to plug right into the back of your Xbox. Now if you're deciding to just go with your old wonderful white Xbox and you just want to buy the Kinect, it'll come with a secondary cable which you will plug in. So either option works, it just depends on what Xbox you have. Now, like I said earlier, the Kinect is super sensitive, so placement is really important as well. You want to make sure it's on a flat surface, first of all; you want to make sure that it's out and that it can be seen. You don't want to cover it, you don't want to push it all the way back into like an alcove or a nook, you want it to be kind of just facing out where it can move up and down, and it has space, because when it does lift, it can fall over, that happened to me the first time, and it's not funny. So remember, keep it steady, and keep it safe.
