thats like the cost of just over 2 years of xbox live. tsk tsk. can you say, broke 360 owners. I wont be surprise if we see less 360 fans by the end of this year LOL

EDIT: @disagree, come over here skittles. Im having a blast today LOL

valanceer2611d ago

what 360 fans? they're on there new broken slim 360.... lol

Xeoset2610d ago

Kinect: 4 players for $119
Move: 4 players for ((4 x $80) + $40)

Just sayin'...

Bhai2610d ago

Don't think there would ever be a 4 player thing happening like ever on these HD consoles (even if the option is still there) and also tht if there are ever going to be 4 adults standing in front of the kinect, man... ahaahahahahha they're gonna hit and punish each other real hard... not to mention break a few decoration pieces or give certain opportunities to a possible gay fellow among them heeheehee.

Really, of all the let downs and stuff, this alone MS has pointed out to face Move which has equal popularity even being not promoted all along the past year at all.

Xeoset2610d ago

Dear Bhai,

That was not ignorant at all.

That would be less than the Playstation Move yet no one is saying that is expensive.

ABizzel12611d ago

Well PS Move is $50 for the controller, you don't need the navigation controller because you supposedly can use a Dual Shock 3 in it's place (It's been said, but I haven't seen it yet.) And if you don't have the PS Eye then you can buy one for only $30.

$80 is cheaper then $120. Move is only expensive if you want 4 controllers and nav's. Which then cost $310 (aka another PS3). But the PS3 can only have 7 controllers used at once (last time I checked) so does that mean you con only have 3 full move controllers going on at one time?

FarEastOrient2611d ago

Yes you can only have 4 Player Move controllers on at the same time or you can have three people playing with each a Move controller and one PS3 Nav.

seij5552610d ago

Not to mention Move games are 40$ while Kinect games are the full 60$

elpresador2610d ago

Kinect games are looking to be $40, not full price.

To others, a $150 kinect, $150 arcade, maybe $30 at most for a 16 gig usb stick instead of a HDD is cheaper than a $299 PS3 with 4 $50 butt plug only which would be $499

OR... I'll just continue to use my Wii for these party games.

LOL, is anyone REALLY going to care what the price is?

Are you going to buy Kinect for Kinectimals? Kinect Sports? Dance Central? On-rails Star Wars? Milo? Some Yoga game? Video chat that you could do with a computer and a $5 webcam?

Lucent Beam2611d ago

Yeah, it's kind of sad that something that could be perceived as a cool tech is only going to end up with crap for games on it.

ArmrdChaos2610d ago (Edited 2610d ago )

What do you care? Your obviously not going to buy it. It's not like you are dropping $600 on a video game system. Why are you in this thread? Fighting the good fight in some imaginary war? So who is winning in this little world of yours?

HolyOrangeCows2610d ago (Edited 2610d ago )

Tell me more, Dr. Phil. Have the Do I dyslexia, too?

Just pointing out that the software is more important than the price and that it is lacking.


"It's not like you are dropping $600 on a video game system."

Let's do some math, shall we?

Launch 360: $400
Xbox Live charges since launch: $50 x 5 years = $250.
Total price for 360 so far: $650

Damn, looks like you've spent MORE than $600 for a video game console! That's not even counting your replacement consoles and required accessories.

Milamber2610d ago


Launch PS3 - $599

Made my day. Bubbles for you Sir!

ReservoirDog3162611d ago

You know, all the people who don't care about Kinect should just not comment. I think it would be better that way.

Erotic Sheep2611d ago

That would only leave 10 people in this article then :P

ReservoirDog3162611d ago

Haha, at least there wouldn't be useless fighting right?

beardpapa2610d ago

I still think they're waiting until production costs go down to announce price. If they announce it now (assuming it's expensive at this point in time) it'll completely kill the marketing hype it's gathering at the moment.

ArchangelMike2610d ago

The fact that they're not making an announcement is causing confusion, and likley stopping ppl from pre-ordering Kinect.

beardpapa2610d ago

i thought there was an article few weeks ago about how kinect preorders on amazon are skyrocketing?

BubZ-SkullY2610d ago

yh whatever the price, it'll still be too much

archemides5182610d ago

it is too much but suckers who pay for online will pay for anything

avengers19782610d ago

MS probably does not know what to charge for it, and the first price they gave had people complaining already... IF this price doesn't get the pre-orders coming in they may have to just bite the bullet and lose money on it.
Witch they will any way.

I know that's only a little bit cheaper than $150, but I still don't know if that would be low enough to make me think it's NOT a rip off....
