Are you eager about the pricing information on Kinect? Microsoft has responded to the constant claims of a $150 price point with an official response from Aaron Greenberg.
i highly doubt they announced this thing without having the details that matter. why so afraid, aaron? i just had 2 bubbles! easy come easy go. this system is broken.
Cuz they know the price will be high.
you always go around acting like you have some big balls.. well man up and tell us the price... how come all of the sudden u actin like a puss oooh that's right.. you fags waiting for Sony to announce their first huh.. As always MS never leading.. only looking how to put down the competition instead of innovating at all..
They might still be decided on how much to charge for it. They're still gauging public reception of the product. So far, that circus event fucked up everything, I think. They may have to do some damage control with a better media event tomorrow on MTV as well as more talk show coverage.
its basically testing the waters. remember, all their eggs are in this basket, they aren't just going to fling the basket into the air hoping it will fly. instead, they are waiting to see public reaction + see what Sony and Nintendo have in store however, it still does show that MS is clearly not AS confident as they were BEFORE E3 big dog barks loudly but bites softly.
The fact that the price was not announced at E3 means it's more then likely to high. Which means MS knows it's to high and to avoid a bad PR fiasco they are not announcing it during the biggest show gaming has to offer. They will announce it later and try to pass it off as a good price point despite being to high and if it's to high less people will be aware of it due to it not being announced at high profile event. Honestly I would not be surprised if they revealed the price a week or 2 after E3 is over.
$189 US Dollars.
Gaugeing the possibly underwhelming reaction , to cut cost and prices around release time . It will look like they did us a favor , when they sell it 120$/120 euros , rather than the speculated yet probably in the ballpark 150. Emphasis on the "look like"
because MS is known to listen to its customers..riighhtt.
When it comes to the future of their involvement in the gaming industry, I think MS will listen. They have a lot riding on Kinect. It can make or break them. Or at the very least it will force them to work harder on marketing the 360 if they have to cut loos Kinect if and when it fails to garner expected sales.
TRANSLATION: "We're waiting for Sony to show their hand first."
Agreed -- find out what Sony is charging then announce something cheaper while saying things like, "We want to be accessible, unlike those Sony peeps." And people will fall for it.
I was going to say the same thing!
No need to release firm pricing now. Wait till you have a better idea what the competition is going to do with (Wii/Move) and hold off price info untill its very close to launch time. LOL..I mean see what they did with the redesigned console? It was only rumored to exist yesterday and then we find out its LITERALLY coming to store shelves.
wasnt at all a well kept secret , was known for many months ... and doesnt feature anything really that new
Was there good rumors about? Sure,no argument there.Pretty impressive IMO to keep it secretive enough that they have already BUILT some, and they are about to drop on store shelves though. Sony did a good job with that last year too with the slim.
$150 is going to be hard to swallow even for the most hardcore fans. lol I can't imagine spending that amount for just a camera.
Go to gamestop.com under E3. it has kinect and the bundles priced
That price is just a estimate by Gamestop?
Yeah I just checked it out. I didnt see bundles with Kinect but saw Kinect by itself for $149.00 Im curious what the "new 360" costs with Kinect,but its only June and Santa is geeting my daughter a Wii or Kinect......
are 299.99. You'll also need an HDMI cable for like $7? If Wii gets another price drop, it'll probably go down to $149.99, otherwise it's $199.99. Kinect is rumored to be between 129.99-189.99
Im going to "guess" what I think it will be priced like with the 250GB system. If the rumored pricing holds true,$399.00 sounds plausable to me. A Wii drop to $150 could happen, but the darn thing is still selling well at $200 so who knows?
sorry but the games shown are not work 150 dollars. One of the games works on Playstation Eye and that is only 40 bucks.
this is going to be expensive....or else they would have been gloating the price... also I expected a bundle to be offered by now
are gonna wait to see if Sony releases A price point for move tomorrow and try to counter or match it. what do you all think?
Gamestop shows Kinect at 150. http://www.gamestop.com/bro...
If came Kinect is $150 WITH ALL 6 launch titles, i would buy it.
TBH I have never been very interested in motion controls. With that said, I was still hoping for MS to show me something in their conference to at least put kinect on my radar. Oh well, so much for that, especially if the price ends up being so high.
A Wii console costs about the same as what the rumored MS web cam is going for. That won't bode well for the market they're trying to capture. Microsoft may have to sell Kinect at a loss for a long while. Man did they ever put themselves in a tough position.
