After GAME revealed a countdown timer yesterday to today's Natal conference held in LA. It appears that the Danish GAME has priced the product at 1.299,00 DKK.
It should bundle with a game pack (5 games). If not, then it's way too expensive.
"around £145 that's just over $200." I find this hard to believe, no way they will price it this high
Well if it is released for $150 US dollars, it will more than likely be released for more than $200 AUS dollars, and I severely doubt many people will buy it for that price. The next few days should be very interesting.
For the same price as a camera attachment you could get a family friendly Wii, with Mario happily waving back at you. Who on earth is going to pay $200 for a camera, then $200 for the console to play Ricochet and Milo when you could pick up a Wii for so much less? I don't believe this. It's suicide, and Microsoft has to know it.
At $200 AUD that's almost the same price as a x360 arcade and almost half the price of a PS3. I think MS may have a bundle deal or the price will alienate a large percentage of users who's not made of money. It will be like the PS3 launch all over again, way too pricey for most. But then again the PS3 offered a hell of a lot more then just a webcam that can track objects in 3D.
If this is true, there's no way in hell I'll even touch it. It better be lower, for MSFT's sake.
ahahhaahh,this is uber expensive stuff,that is like 175 euros :oo
Is that the amount it's been rumored as? Either way, that's a lot, even though it makes sense considering the prices for other un-entertaining add-ons they've released. I'm not counting it out yet, though. Maybe they'll bundle it with a game. Knowing Microsoft's strategy, however....
Give me an F, give me a L, give me an O, give me a P. What does that spell, FLOP!
145 GB POUNDS http://www.youtube.com/watc...
HAHA, thats really funny.
I like the music. sandstorm
Looks like all those raves I went to in the 90's has prepared me well for Natal!
Man Too Much For Me To Handle It.
I could buy a console with that much money (Wii).
Does the Wii have "Hit The Big, Red Ball" though?
MS expects Natal to sell 5 million at that price??? Who is gonna buy it? The casual gamers? They would buy a 360 and a Natal at 249? They would rather buy a wii thats more popular and cheaper. The hardcore gamers? They would pay 175 euros for something that doesn't have any hardcore games or more importantly shoters? MS seems to have spent so much money in Natal that they regret it and want to get rid of it
cANT WAIT 4 e3
The countdown hasn't even reached the end yet. How exactly are they able to place a price on this? @MoonwalkAway >Joined N4G 11 minutes ago I lol'd. @Petro89 Yeah, that's great. It doesn't exactly change the fact that the Danish GAME website would have this information before Microsoft even announces it to the general public.
You'd see that they got the price from the Danish GAME website. Here's a link: http://www.game.dk/acatalog...
Lets hope this is a price error OR the games shown for it blow us the fuck out of our seats.
You Know what is really sad?? The world is full of idiots and MS fanboy, and natal will sell 5+milions even at 150$ and even if the hardware is sh!t.
I smell a N power glove/virtual boy situation if this is true
Hmm thats very expensive. I am planning on buying Sony's MOVE for my PS3 and Microsoft's Natal for my 360 but at that price I might just wait a while and see if it drops in price and has some decent titles made available for it. For me Sony's MOVE looks like the better system that can be used on a wider variety of games so that will probably be my first choice purchase of a motion control system.
omdz, i have a ps3 but i was hoping to buy a 360 (maybe arcade since i have a ps3) just so i can try out "natal" if it turned out any good, since to be honest seems cool, like an updated pseye. but at £145 i can't afford that on one thing, how much will the bundles cost???!!?!?!? FLOP...i think i'll just stick to move tbh
i cant believe people actually believe that this is the price. ms know that if they price this hardware too high it wont sell and with the amount of press coverage and money they have spent on launching it they wont take the risk imo i think it will be priced £69.99 in the uk
People are stupid 360's HDD price is totally a scam, BUT people still continue to buy it. And the sad thing is that MS marches on people stupidity.
Well we'll know the real price soon enough. I just hope they don't have paid actors doing the demoing presentations at E3. They should get that crazy woman and her kids instead.
1st thing they originally took out the chip to lower the costs which I was not happy about because I want it to perform, 2nd they put the chip back in so I suppose we have to accept it will cost more, the only issue I have really is that I just don't have that kind of money to spend on toys, if more people have spare cash it would not be a problem but money is tight these days, but when you consider other devises like rock band and what was the name of the one with the mecs? with the giant controls, I guess new tec costs money, but if you don't have it then it's just not relevant to you.
The amount of stuff i've pre ordered myself n they can never tell me the price coz apparantly there not told until basically the release date its a pain so i rly doubt they've found natal (which isint going to b called natal in the end) price
$200? You can buy a Wii at that price,or even a PS3 slim with another $100.
the 32X for Sega Genesis at that price.
Then can keep it. I already have a Wii.
instant fail confirmed and since this is pounds expect dollars to be around 169$
More than that. In $$$$$ I think it will be $199. Unless it's bundled with Arcade, getting this and a 360 to work with it is gonna cost nearly $299
if people like the wii fit they will certainly buy this wii fit price http://www.qvc.com/qic/qvca...
I wonder how much it would cost of MS keep that chip inside the camera. I had a feeling this would be this price just by looking at past MS accessories. The only way I can see this selling at 150 + is if MS advertises the shit out of it. It will be funny seeing a Natal ad after a Halo: Reach ad.
you would have thought taking the chip out would keep cost down
We will see. If Natal can have 3D support without the need of 3D glasses, then it will be worth the $150.00. Christ, Wii fit cost $120.00 when it was first launch and it sold like hot cakes. Natal will be a game changer, we will see in a couple of days.
unfortunatly the price shown on this is £145 not dollars so the current exchange rate show it as 210 U.S. dollars but i dont think it will cost more than £69.99 ot $100
*natal ISN'T the Wii fit as the 360 ISN'T the wii * 3D without glasses? LOL yeah sure that will come cheap and this year *facepalm* yuou only read n4g for tech news don't you? =P
3D support? Natal is a camera! It doesn't output anything, what are you talking about? But, yeah, "just wait until E3", "just wait until SLIM 360 and Natal", "just wait", how times have changed! All we've heard from one side for the past two years.
I think you are a bit too optimistic.
A bit off-topic: You know, I always said that THAT Milo demo(pic from the 'article' above) was fake.. The thing is, now that I really think about it, it was super-fucking-fake lol. I mean, look at how close she's to the tv!! Didn't they said a few months ago that you needed to be at certain distance or some shit like that? I mean like wtf, the cam would record the movements of her fucking head!! XD o'well.. enough!! I just hope MS conference is fucking sick!! I want to see Natal(I don't give a fuck about Milo) succeed along with Move, I expect great things from both camps in the upcoming years :)
yeah there was rumoir that you had to be a certain distance but it turned out that it was total room coverage it hink it was 5 metres and people thought that you had to be 5 meteres away but that wasnt the case
way too mcuh but usually converting prices from one country to another isn't always accurate. But i'd say if Game are putting a price up already then it is likely to be true. Game being the biggest video game store in EU, certainly in Europe, most towns and cities have several of these shops. and regarding the price.... i hope it's not that high. If it really is worth it then i'll buy it but honestly i hope MS has some 'hardcore' games saved for E3 cus i'm not paying £145 to play rocochet or any other similar minigames. Show me something truly original and prove to me i need to buy natal... guess we'll see later tonight
It's over a month old. GAME Scandinavia (Sweden, Denmark, Norway) has had that price for several weeks and there was news about it over 1 month ago. The price - 1500 Swedish money = 1300 Danish = around £140 = around $180 - is only based on speculation.
I still refuse to believe MS are stupid enough to release Natal at that price, there's just no way they can think that it will shift millions over Xmas at that price. I'll wait until MS officially announce a price before I believe any prices.
RIPOFF. That's almost as much as the 360 itself.
LOOOOL that's more than a 360 console.. even with a price cut, owners will still be paying in upward of £250.. that will hopefully be out of range of the average nintendo families so hopefully it'll fail.
its going up in price with speculation. hope its cheaper...or else this will faaail
Big mistake by Microsoft. Sony can get away with pricing their electronics high because they are a hardware company synonymous with high end quality. Microsoft hardware is not synonymous with quality...Microsoft will FAIL at that price.
Well guys... in Microsoft's defense they DID say that this was going to be treated like a launch of a new system. So... 150-200 sounds just about right. The thing is I doubt that it's going to be sold alone. I mean look at Wii Sports being bundled with almost every single Wii. It's the highest selling "game" of all time. Plus Sony said... or it's rumored that they're bundling a bunch of demos with Move too. Microsoft just isn't that dumb guys. As much as I dislike them, they did put of a hell of a fight this gen and won't screw up with Natal because it's going to make or break em.
