$150 keep it,not sure if they want to sell these. again why bundling a game and charging 149 drop the game and charge 100 or less.

Seeing as the PC version of kinect v2 is going for $200, I was guessing that or $150. At $350, they would have sold a lot more systems.

Kinect is pretty much over…If people didn't want to buy the Xbox One w/Kinect at $499…I don't see how they'll be okay paying $549 for the same hardware

batman21x1206d ago (Edited 1206d ago )

They want the bundle to be a better deal and they also have to pay for shelf space for the kinect to be stores so they can't sell it for a $100

Nothing new here. They did the same exact pricing with the 360 and the standalone Kinect1.

Kinect's is dead!!! All them cool/nice a55 custom theme Xbox's One bundles....none comes with Kinects.....where do you think there going with it???

People who buy an Xbox One without Kinect, it very likely that they don't want it in the first place. They priced Kinect at $150 to "force" people who are on the fence about which SKU to buy, to get the one with Kinect included.

Force is a bit strong.

More like encourage people to buy the full package.
Sony would do the exact same thing.

Cool, for all those lonely xbox ones out there! I got my baby back, bay back, baby back!

It'll probably sell well outside of gaming like the first kinect did. Some of the stuff that people were using the first kinect to do was astounding. I've even seen people use it as a cheap motion capture device for animation. I think they should just promote outside of gaming and make it an all purpose device an play up its strengths accordingly. The device itself is great tech, but if devs don't want to develop for it and show off that tech then it's a paperweight.

Oh man such PR written all over it. It doubled because it was record lows before June and people were waiting for the new sku rather than buying it in May. July's numbers were back down to normal. I do wonder why anyone would buy this standalone for the X1 instead of just getting a bundle with the Kinect.

With my budget and the games I want when I pick it up this holiday season I will opt for the $399 package. Although this standalone unit might get a price cut or a sale later and I would love to pick it up to complete my XBO experience.
