how cheap is cheap? i can't do the currency exchange but any more than $30 u.s.d. for these is too expensive.

"party launch line-up such as Kinect Sports will retail for £29.99 (about €37 / $44, based on current exchange rates), we were told."

They go on to say "Others might be cheaper" however, I wouldnt be surprised if SOME were more expensive also. I'd say $30 would be the minimum while $50 would be the upper end. From experience launch titles are generally well priced but prices fluctuate around them.

With the way games tends to get priced in the different regions if it's £29.99 here it'll likely be $39.99 in the US.

I agree with your minimum and maximum amounts.

You get extra value for money because you can use the receipt to park in disabled car park spaces... because if you buy into Kinect you are officially retarded.

It's only when you put KINECT above the Xbox 360 logo like that, that it really shines through just how terrible a name it is.

Every one will get used to it as usual. Give it till the end of this week and you'll see.

And looks like I'm the only one to think that the name isnt all that bad, I think it sounds cooler than the Wii for instance or Wave.

its definatly better than wave though i think they could have come up with a better name. were they tryin for kinetic or somethin ??

cheap price for cheap quality. seems fair.

I get the feeling Kinect will not sell and MS will have lost a few milion dollars.

Making the games cheaper is a sign that the games aren't actually real games. More like crappy tech demos to show that MS also has an Eye-Toy

obviously,whod wonna spend full price or even a higher price on such a cheap lookn game and gameplay.
