    Bolded the important info.

    I mean, it's not outrageously overpriced in a bundle, but it's a bad product.

    If you didn't feel like reading:

    - Kinect is $150 USD. No ifs, ands, or buts.
    - Kinect will be bundled with Kinect Adventures (like the Wii with Wii Sports)
    - You can buy a $300 Kinect bundle that has a Kinect, Kinect Adventures, and a new redesigned 360 (which has 4GB internal memory and built-in Wi-Fi, no hard drive included)
    - The 360 mentioned above can be purchased without a Kinect for $200.
    - If you preordered a Kinect or a bundle with Kinect, you'll get 3 exclusive Kinect Adventures levels... Whoop-de-do.

    I really hate this, not that I'm interested in this product... but that $ = € bullshit is bullshit!
    €1 = 9.84 Swedish Kronor,
    $1 = 7.58 Swedish Kronor....

    that means the european version will cost $195

    Lol, Wii costs only like what, 50-100 dollars more and you get a console and a game.. Bad move. Very bad. You can pretty much get like half PS3 with that price.

    4GB only.... it's a better deal than the old XBOX Arcade.
    Kinect is too much for me... that price.

    i will wait for the 3DS and see.

    I like how they said earlier that $150 is just a place holder

    Sony was overpriced in the beginning with the ps3, but I think Microsoft have decided to take their place.

    My interest in Kinect is gone. Guess that money will go to getting a 3ds.

    I certainly had no interest in buying this in the first place, but now I don't think many people out there will.

    Come on, $150 on TOP of the 360 (or $300 bundled), for what's essentially a Wii sports imitation?

    This is Microsoft's internal take on it's motion controls total cost of ownership...

    i don't have wii balance board but couldn't you count that close to being like kinect.i'm just saying this because not to sure but didn't the wii balance board let a person use their body as a controller in wii fit you know that soccer game where i remember seeing people use their head as a controller.i i could be wrong about what i just said because i don't have a wii fit to prove myself wrong or right.

    [​IMG] Microsoft are really full of themselves aren't they. Personally the idea of no controllers sounds even more gimmicky then motion controls. The kinect will fail, if it doesn't, then I question humanity's Intelligence as a whole.

    Did it turn out to be true that only two players can be detected on that?
