New Kinect for Xbox 360 Price: Estimate Only

By Updated on

E3 2010 is now behind us and while there Microsoft showcased their Kinect for the Xbox 360. However, in all that time they failed to mention the price for the device – although the price states on the Microsoft site that the motion-sensing device will cost $149.99, which we discussed in a recent post.

A spokesperson for Microsoft has since stated that this price is an estimate only and is subject to change – that’s according to Jared Newman from Technologizer, whose article appears on PC World. Newman said that Matt Peckham said that maybe Microsoft was forced into putting this price on their website – then they could drop the price just before launch.

There are a number of reasons as to why the Xbox 360 maker decided to offer a price during E3 2010; one of those was that they just have not worked out how much to sell it for yet.

It is no secret that $150 is expensive, although there are some like Newman who disagree. I fear that Microsoft will stick with its price, as consumers would have already got used to the idea that will be paying said price.
