Kinect Spotted in Microsoft Store For $149, Microsoft Still Denying Price

This evening Microsoft added Kinect (previously known as Project Natal) to their online store, known simply as the “Microsoft Store”, for $149, which is the exact price at which retailers have been pricing it for.

However, Microsoft has denied the price found on the Microsoft Store with a Tweet posted on Twitter by Stephen Toulouse:

“All prices now *no matter what the retail source* are placeholders. We’ve not announced.”

So, why the $149 pricing? Maybe because the price for Kinect could be in the $150-$200 range, but then again, that’s just this writer’s guess.

Remember, the $150 price is all but confirmed from Microsoft so any pricing retailers post should be treated as speculation until Microsoft announce the actual price.

Kinect launches on November 4th, so expect Microsoft to announce the price in the near future.

  1. Lame, its obviously going to be $149 now because if they made it any higher it would just be bad publicity.. and if they made it any less.. well they might since the only other competition for motion capture gaming is supposed to come out at a much higher price and they have already made fun of the fact that they are going to kill the competition with its cost… but why lose more money then you have to?

    Maybe, but then again they could be trying to make everyone think that it’ll be $149 which will dampen consumers’ spirits, and then confirm a lower price.

    But again, all we can do it wait for Microsoft to announce the price.
