Microsoft puts a price tag on Kinect

Written by Nedim Hadzic

$149.99 on Microsoft's online store

Well, it’s not much newsworthy as most retailers have already set the pricing to roughly $150, but this time it’s the closest to official pricing.

Microsoft’s online store now lists Kinect at $149.99, which pretty much coincides with earlier reports by big name retailers.

Furthermore, the pricing seems to corroborate reports that Microsoft will not make any money on these, which is understandable as the company had to do some serious hardware cuts on Kinect in order to make it go as low as this.

You can find Kinect listed here.
