Microsoft will be bundling the Q Entertainment title, Child of Eden, starting with Kinect units coming next week. The title will be offered as a download code that will be included in addition to Kinect Adventures and will still sell for the same $150 price tag.
The revised bundle will be offered in all regions except Japan, where Child of Eden has yet to be released. Child of Eden has received much positive press and has sold quite well so far, which apparently makes it a no brainer for Microsoft to bundle it with Kinect. It is unclear if this is a temporary thing that will only run from now through the holiday season, or if this will be the way the Kinect add-on is sold from now on.
With over 10 million Kinect units sold so far and over 10 million Kinect titles sold, the future for Kinect titles looks bright, with a number of Kinect titles coming this holiday season. There will be much more software for Kinect owners to choose from this holiday season which should help sell more Kinect units.
