Meh… It’s too high, I think. Casual gamers that Microsoft is targeting most likely don’t even own a 360 yet, so the price for them is $300.

With the huge success of the Xbox 360 Slim, I think those who have every intention of definitely getting Kinect most likely do own a 360 now? Then there are likely to be those gamers who are tired of their Wii now and will see this as a successor (maybe) and want one for Christmas.

At least the price is no surprise, it should have just been £99.99 without the game.

I wish it was bundled with Joy Ride instead.

A ‘Black Matte’ console for the 4GB one - the slim is going to look awful in matte, but I guess it wont attract dog hairs like the really shiny static-y one. :)

The 360 installed base is mostly made up of hardcore gamers and I don’t think they look forward to Kinect too much. There may be some of them (you included, I see) but that’s just a minority. At least that’s how I see it.

The consumers Microsoft is catering to are Wii owners and casual gamers-to-be. I don’t think this group of people even knows what a Kinect is… that’s until Microsoft’s Kinect marketing campaign shifts into high gear later on in the year. And once they do learn about it and run to the nearest Best Buy, they will see the high price and forget about it.

You wait and see.

6 months after release this will be sub £50 to shift all the stock. I just can’t see this not failing.

$150 = £100 not £130. Absolute crap

And since when has there been a proper exchange rate mechanism used for pricing things in the UK from the US?

I think we are lucky they haven’t just swapped a $ for a £ which is the usual rule.

Well if people are buying this who don’t even have an Xbox 360, Kinect will be £100 for them ;)

ahahaha I’m trying to imagine that !!

“Come see my new Kinect Sensor - I can jump around everywhere and it just watches me…”
