Microsoft says "We haven't yet announced pricing details for Kinect," but retailer GameStop is taking a stab at pricing the new Xbox 360 accessory, putting a $US149 sticker on pre-orders. The new Xbox 360 bundles may be a better deal.
While Kinect by itself may fall under "too much", if you're jumping in for the first time, it's a more attractive $US100 investment.
GameStop prices a Kinect Arcade bungle at $US299.99 and a Kinect Elite Bundle at $US399.99. GameStop also puts a $US59.99 price on two games, Kinect Adventures! and Kinect Sports.
