I don't think many consumers will buy Natal at that price.

It would only make sense if it was an Arcade bundle with natal for £130

now that would would make more sense and sell

I agree,that price is a ripoff ....
$99.99 or less Natal should be ...

It seems like alot for another peripheral. If it's the correct price, and PlayStation Move is less, it could see Microsoft losing out on the potential which Natal has.

for 2 cameras and microphone it is too much

Depth sensing camera based on IR are expensive piece of hardware period.

Just look at IR cam used for suveillance purpose they range from 100$ to 450$ and they're only simple thermal cam, with no incorporated mic nor a secondary camera.

And MS has to add to that the licencing price for the gesture recognition software and the gesture control interface for NXE made by Gesturetek.

Believe me, if MS prices Natal below 100$ then it will mean they're loosing quite a bunch of money on each hardware sold and I don't think their game division is ready for another loss.

that price seems a bit high you can buy an xbox 360 arcade for £119.99 in the uk. unless natal is £60 or under i cant see it doing well because its target audience are children and i doubt parents want to pay for that plus and xbox to play it on. Microsoft are known for making overpriced accessories but surely they wouldn't be stupid enough to charge that much. Official pricing will probably be announced at e3 so we will find out then.

They're going to try to justify it by saying that it's basically four controllers and cool new tech.

The more I see the high prices, the more I'm expecting it. If it's not more than the WiFi adapter, I'm going to think it's absurd.
