you can do this, only on the windows version, not the xbox version.

There is a Kinect toolbox plus lots of stuff in the File Exchange. Did you do a search?

The IR image from the Kinect for Windows device can be acquired using the 'kinect' adaptor (IMAQ Toolbox).
The IR image is exposed as a format on the Color Device. Here is a code snippet to grab a color image from a Kinect device:
>> vid = videoinput('kinect',1,'Infrared_640x480');
You can use preview/getsnapshot on this object to get the IR image.
Here is a list of all the formats supported on the Kinect device: Kinect for Windows formats
