Posted on June 17, 2010, Phil Owen What, Kinect pricing?
Earlier this week, Gamestop posted a $149.99 price for the Kinect with the note that “this is an estimate only” because Microsoft hasn’t announced a price. But now other retailers are on the Kinect-pricing bandwagon. Walmart.com, Bestbuy.com and Amazon all have prices listed now. Amazon is key, because with their pre-order price guarantee, $149.99 is the most you would have to pay if you pre-order now, so I highly doubt they would post that if they thought the price would be higher.
This is weird, though, because it doesn’t seem likely that MS would be close to announcing pricing if they didn’t announce it at E3. I expect we won’t have official pricing for some time.
