According to online retailer Amazon, Microsoft’s hands-free motion sensing Kinect will cost $149.99, and the first slate of launch titles will sell for $59.99 each.
While Microsoft has yet to officially announce the Kinect prices, GameStop listed the same prices last week, (and Major Nelson even tweeted out the Amazon listing over the weekend), so it's likely that these will end up being the going prices, even though they seem a bit steep.
Microsoft officially announced the rebranding of Kinect, formerly known as Project Natal, during E3 2010 last week, but, as expected, they didn’t reveal a price for it. The expectation was that Kinect would most likely cost $150, and it turns out that speculation was accurate.
A new Xbox 360 slim was also announced during E3, and Microsoft has since confirmed that a $199 version of the console will be available later this year, which suggests that a 360 slim/Kinect bundle is not only possible, but will most likely be released before the end of the year as well.
I’m currently waiting to hear back from Microsoft about the listings, so stay tuned.
