E3 10: Retail Kinect pricing ‘purely speculative’

Recommended Videos

At its E3 press conference, Microsoft was more than happy to be forthcoming with the release date for its hot-item Kinect. But on the subject of pricing, its lips are sealed.

Earlier today, we reported that GameStop put up a listing for peripheral, priced at $149.99. Unsurprisingly, Microsoft won’t confirm or deny the cost, instead reiterating what we already know: it hasn’t announced a price.

“Retail prices are purely speculative,” wrote Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg on his Twitter account in response to the pricing reports. “Final pricing and pack-in details are not yet determined.”

So there you have it. Back to square one. I think everyone can agree that $149.99 for Kinect, with no software packed in, seems a bit pricey. What will Kinect and its games be really be worth? I’ll find out tonight, when I can get a chance to try out most of the Kinect titles Microsoft reveled at its press conference earlier today. Stay tuned.
