Breaking News: Kinect Price Officially Revealed

32 second read

Microsoft Kinect After months of seeing the placeholder price tag of $149.95 being thrown around by websites and retailers alike we can finally confirm that the official price just announced by Microsoft is $149.95.

So, no surprise there and Microsoft obviously feel that the Internet backlash to that price tag is an acceptable price to pay and that the mainstream are going to be happy paying for it.

The Kinect system will come bundled with Kinect Adventures when it releases later this year. So what do you think? Too much? Just right?

Let us know in the comments.

    I think this was a bad move, if they want the Kinect to be in every home then they should have made it cheaper.

    Hmmmm…. I think it’s *just* right. Pretty much nearly the same prices:

    Kinect: $149.99 (2 players)
    Move: 2x $49.99 + 2x $29.99 (attachment) = $159.96 (2 players)


    $149.99 — $159.96

    @ Nick: I agree with you, yes if it was cheaper, more people would buy it. BUT, then again, if they made it cheaper, they wouldn’t make any profit.

    Cause it’s not that cheap to make them.

    Oh, forgot to add the PS-Eye price as well….

    $32.82 (Amazon.com pricing)

    So add that up with the Move…. For 2 players: $192.78

    well it is $100 + $50 for the game.

    seems like a good deal, hopefully it is only R1500
    in south africa.

    And I will buy it day 1 – even thought i would not be able to use it, but the kids and wife would love it.

    You don’t HAVE to buy the sub controllers though. They are just one handed dualshock 3 controllers. You can always just use you normal controller.

    Can’t believe they ended up going for $149. $50 more and you can get a whole console…
