At least three Swedish retailers are listing a price for upcoming Xbox 360 motion controller Project Natal and it’s not good.
While UK sources were telling MCV that the motion controller would run $US80, perhaps less, the three Swedish retail sites are all listing the device for 1,499 SEK, which works out to just under a whopping $US200 (or just over $AU200 – AU Ed.). Now keep in mind a $US60 game runs nearly $US80 in Sweden, but that’s still a pretty penny if it’s correct.
There’s also a very strong possibility that this is a placeholder price. I certainly hoping that’s the case, but I don’t see a lot of people lining up to buy a peripheral that costs as much as the console that uses it.
