Kinect Underground: The Secret World of Microsoft's Motion Controller

Microsoft Kinect's price has dropped to $109 in the United States, down from $149, Major Nelson has announced. This is not a sale, but the new standard price of a Kinect.

There will also be a permanently reduced price in Canada, Mexico, Latin America and Asia Pacific regions where Kinect is sold. Additionally, on October 4, the Kinect sensor will be available for a permanently reduced price in Australia and New Zealand.

Sadly, if you're in Japan or Europe, there will be no price drop. It's good here in America.

Now that the Kinect has been out for a while, what do you guys think? Has it lived up to the promise of the technology? Is the future going to make Kinect a must-have for all gamers, or is Microsoft's product destined to live in the casual/kiddy market forever? Give your opinions in our comment section.
