Breaking News: Microsoft Officially Announce Price for Kinect

By Jamie Pert - Jun 22, 2010

After much speculation about the price of Microsoft’s new motion-sensing-device ‘Kinect,’ Microsoft have officially revealed that the price of the unit will cost the same as the Xbox 360 console.

Microsoft made the announcement today, and said that Kinect – formally Project Natal – will be priced at the $149.99 (the price that was leaked previously). This is also the same price as Microsoft sell the 360 Arcade Spring 2010 Bundle for online.

Although there are 15 titles that have been confirmed for Kinect so far, including Forza 4 and a new Sonic the Hedgehog, none are thought to be released as part of the Kinect deal which comes with the Kinect sensor, Power suppy, User manual and Wi-Fi extension cable.

I do however believe that Microsoft will also release Xbox 360 bundles, probably ranging from around $200 upwards, but what kind of games and bundles would you like to see Microsoft release? Do you believe $149.99 is a fair price for Kinect?
