    I can only assume they're saying this because of the negative reactions everywhere, and that they are now discussing what a better price would be so that more people would accept it and buy the Kinect.

    Seems likely. I wonder if this will force them to sell it at a loss?

    I bet that the Kinect will only be available in some new XBox360 Bundle.

    Wow. Kind of seems so obvious that they say this only because of the negativity it has been recieving.

    Away from civilization.
    Maybe they'll raise it higher than $199 and tell everyone to suck it up like they have been so far.

    "It was an estimate price, the actual retail price is $199.99!" that or the pointless accessory additional package, super standard plus! "$299.99!" We'll throw in a free Kinect game of your choice.

    My gues would be that they lower it to $100 without any games, $120 with games or someting in that direction.

    Still, it'll go down after a while. I'm not going to buy this anyway.
