Ubergizmo: The word at the Natal Experience event @E3 is that Natal's price would be $120.
it's a fair price i think gotta wait till e3 to see what "kinect" has to offer
It's better than $180 It's a good price for new audiences like casual gamers that see something futuristic like from Minority Report in today's technology. The tech has existed before but Kinect would mainstream it. As for current gamers, I don't see it happening, not just yet at least. Maybe if they reduce the price of the 360 it will seem more justifiable. Which makes me wonder about the new model. If 360 somehow gets a $100 price drop to make Kinect more purchase-worthy then it seems like a better move.
$120 is the price of 2 new games... for what is pretty much an ENTIRELY new console!! This is amazing Good to see Microsoft not overpricing their hardware like other companies do
everyone that jumped on the $189 rumor now looks like a idiot
just wait until tomorrow people geez
I think it might be priced high to make the Xbox 360 + Kinect bundle look more attractive for the price point. Much like the HDDs are very spendy and it makes more sense just to get a new system if you trade it in and what not.
It's still a rumor.
Sometimes I wonder if companies pay people to hype their products and say the high price point is good or if people are just idiots. Don't get me wrong it's a great product but I fail to see why having a high price point is great, it doesn't do that much that the PS2 eyetoy couldn't.
It's like the people who complain that they don't want the DLC included in the game like it used to be. No they say they would rather spend the money on stupid DLC horse armor because it makes them feel better, then say I don't know the "thrill of buying DLC even if it should have been in the game to begin with". Sigh...I don't get this generation.
(yes I'm older than most on this site. I also find it funny how so many deny it's similarities to the eyetoy and call me a fanboy for simply making the comparison. I have been around since the SNES days which long enough to realize how silly these console fanboys are and how quickly they shift their allegiances. I think it's a great idea to retry the motion camera but paying that much $ for old tech upsets the older gamers like me.)
Sorry...I just had to vent.
All of these rumors about Natal being priced at 180 are made up my MS so when they finally reveal the EXPENSIVE but lower price that those of the rumors, you will think it is a fair price.
What a rip off. A good and fair price is $70. $120 is really expensive.
Cheaper than what I paid for those NVGs and Call of Duty: MW2..Cheaper than the $150 I'm going to drop on Halo Reach.. Cheaper than the Rock Band + Gutar Hero games with all the instruments..
But it's the same as Tony Hawk's launch price..Priceless
Let the detractors scratch their heads..I'm on Facebook and people already screaming they want it..and the USA today article just went viral only an hour a so ago..if they pull of this show and the week in general..watch them numbers come in
This is far bigger than what N4G or Gaf thinks..it's about tapping into that I-phone 4 and Wii numbers..parents are gonig to eat this thing up
no way im paying $120.00 for that. i would pay like 40-60 bucks.
Unless it gets to $60, people won't buy it. The Wii hit the sweet spot at $250 with an included game. $300 for a console + $120 = $420 for a console. People won't like that.
Like I said the bundle with a system is going to make more sense to any consumer. Which is what MS goal is. They are going to try to make you get it with a new Xbox.
"LOL everyone that jumped on the $189 rumor now looks like a idiot" The rumored 189 is for the more expensive version since there might be 2 versions. And I have been saying it might be 120 for quite some time now. How about you? Are you one of those who said it will be 50 bucks?
You guys are celebrating a $120 price tag of the thing that was just shown tonight? Looks like the Microsoft mind conditioning worked after all. I understand that some of you really love Microsoft. I won't try to make you love them less. Just try to use common sense on this one. You have heard from the people at the Kinect conference. It was plain stupid. You knew before the conference that it was aimed at casual gamers. Don't trick yourself into thinking that $120 is a whole lot less than the first $150 rumor. You don't want to waste your money, do you?
If Kinect is the next Wii, people will pay those prices. If the casual market doesn't respond, Kinect will be DisKinect.
whats with all these rumors about it being 120$ and 190$ with no real evidence. show me a e3 picture revealing the price and ill believe it. reguardless, e3 is tommorow and well find out the real price then.
is pushing a bit, but if the software is there (games/apps) i can see it doing well.
I knew the $180 stuff was bogus, because they need to keep Kinect and a 360 combined closer to $250 to battle the Wii.
You do know that this is a rumor too, right?
Yeah, but, $180 rumours are bogus and this is real.
Yeah. I think it's funny how one rumor is more bogus than the other when neither have clarification. You all can wait 10 more hours and find out the truth or continue to speculate for the next 10 hours...
Yup. $120 is about where I would have guessed. I would expect it to have a pretty sharp price cut after the holidays. It will probably settle at about $99 shortly after the Christmas rush.
I wonder if the two separate models are true. One being $120 and the other being $180 or $190 like rumored. It's more than it should be, being over $100 and all, but it's about right considering the prices of other Xbox accessories. EDIT: *sigh*, I keep saying Kinnet when I try to say Kinect because it doesn't look like "connect"....
299 and your problems/jealousy goes away.
too expensive imo. that's the price of 2 new games and really not much cheaper than a wii.
It's a few tens away from a Wii at the moment.
If the MOVE comes in $30-$50 less than this, then Natal in done.
How is done? It would only really matter to those that own both systems like me. With all the fanboyism on the net it would seem that those people and I are in the the minority. If you own a PS3 and are looking to purchase a motion controller you are getting the Move. If the price is correct it will indeed hurt Kinect. But Sony's Move will have nothing to do with it. The media likes to play up this competition between MS and Sony but in reality the competition is between the companies and their current customers. Nintendo owns the casual market and will continue to do so no matter what Move or Kinetic does.
I dont believe it. These random sites are just throwing out numbers with no credible source whatsoever. If Kinect is over a 100 dollars than MS executives are clueless. They are trying to reach the casual audience. For a little more then 120 dollars those people can by a freaking Wii. I had no plans to purchase Kinect or Move but I did not rule out either. If this information is true (which I highly doubt it is) there is no way I would purchase it. The core gamers could use that 120 dollars to buy two quality titles in the same quarter.
Interesting price. Regardless MS is going to advertise and market it properly. Im sure it will do extremely well in the market.
hmm, i have to buy a xbox 360 199 $ then anotherkinect camera thing 120$ plus a wifi adapter 99$ and then games.500$ waste of money. and i cant even have 3d or watch bluray joke.
I'm calling it now, Kinect will flop. Hard.....
Funny Kinect sounds like it fits better with PS Move. Move would be a good name for Kinect being it is more or less the point of it. Just a random thought is all.
$120 is not bad. Still lets wait for tmr.
lol WHO EVEN KNOWS WHAT THIS IS? n4g - ur rumors are blasphemous lol xbox - under $200 - ya right
Well count me out then smh Micro$oft.
$120 translates to 45 Bahraini Dinars. That's a pretty good price for me!
Wow, really? This guy is really going to start rumors on Natal/Kinect's price one day before it's announced? How starved for information does he think people on N4G are? ... Pssst, yo, any word on what Move is going to cost?
Taking this into account, I'm GUESSING the slim will be $150 (Do not quote me on this). If that's the case you're looking at $270 for a console and Kinect? I'm also guessing Kinect will come bundled with free game like Wii Sports which is a fair deal. But I dunno, it still seems a bit high. This is the worry I have for Kinect and Move...yes, the peripheral may be a good deal, but remember, the audience they're trying to attract don't own the console yet, so thats extra money on top of the peripheral. Why buy that when you can buy a Wii which, to them can pretty much do a similar thing. I could be proved wrong, but we'll see.
dont like this design... Can you use it on horizontal position? I think horizontal will look more awful
Huh? That is the new Xbox 360 design and yes, you can sit it on it's side. It's not curved or anything to prevent you from doing so. Kinect is "Project Natal", which is 4 controllers. EDIT: Kinect can have up to 4 people playing at once. The people = the controllers.
kinect is zero controllers
Since U have to have a 360 to play it that's crazy price if true If it was stand alone I could see that being a good price
So let me get this straight. You're saying people who believed the $180 "Rumour" look like idiots based on this $120 "Rumour". Do you see how seriously retarded you're statement is? Anyway $120 seems quite high to be but i know there are some diehards who purchase anything from Microsoft no matter the price.
You all are acting like crackheads fighting over a rock! If anyone has been paying attention to general consensus, then you would already know that "Kinect" or, what have you, didn't do too well at it's unveiling, because if you did know I don't think that even the diehard fanboy would be arguing about how much they are willing to spend on this unproven piece of technology that microsoft plans on using to syphen money out of your pockets with! If anything you should be demanding that microsoft pay you too take it off their hands!
Ouch. At $120 that thing better pick up fart movement also.
? if $120 is too much for you stick to flash games. I hear wal-mart has a sale on texas hold-em handhelds
to much...under 100 bucks is the price point to sell this device (same with motion)
