We learned earlier this week that Microsoft had announced a price for its new Kinect device for the Xbox 360; we then learned that this was not the final price and could come down. We now have it on good authority that there is a new price for the motion-sensing device.
Xbox Evolved has learned from someone in the know at Texas Gamestop that this new price will be $119, which is $31 cheaper than the recently mentioned price. If this is true then we can be certain of the fact that Microsoft is still undecided as to the price of the Kinect.
We cannot know for sure that this representative is fully in the know or has just grabbed the price from the air — all we now is the current $150 price tag is on the wrong side of the one hundred dollar mark.
We recently wrote that analyst, retailers and gamers think that the price should be below $100 if it has any chance of success. We also noted that getting the right price that appeals to these gamers will help sell more units of the new Xbox 360.
