Xbox 360 Kinect: First Bundle and Price from Walmart

By Alan Ng - Jul 14, 2010

We have some important news for those of you planning to pick up Microsoft’s Kinect motion software for the Xbox 360 console, as Walmart has detailed what looks to be the very first hardware and software bundle.

As reported from VG247, the US retailer is providing a Kinect bundle for $199. If you needed any further proof that the standalone price for Kinect will be $149, then Walmart’s bundle is probably all you need.

For $199, you’ll get a Kinect kit, a choice of a Kinect game and also a $30 eGift Card at Walmart. It is not a bad deal for the $50 extra when you think about it.

There will be six games to choose from, they include: Kinect Sports, Kinect Adventure, Dance Central, Kinectimals, Kinect Joy Ride or Harry Potter: Deadly Hallows. You can also choose an additional game with the bundle for an extra $59 – bringing the total price to $258 with two games.

What are your thoughts on this? It seems a bit odd that Walmart has put this online despite the fact that Microsoft are yet to officially confirm pricing.

Are you interested in this bundle or not? I’m sure there will be a lot more bundles to choose from closer to the November 4th Release. Visit Walmart’s page here.
